    Anyone who gave this game a 10 has probably not played it for longer than five minutes

    A wholly underrated and misunderstood game. Short levels aside, this is one seriously fun game; especially when you play against a friend in two player mode. The graphics are beautiful, and rival the PS2's ability at making polygons look pretty. The controls are solid and the physics, while on the arcade side of the spectrum, definitely give you the impression that you are in fact A wholly underrated and misunderstood game.

The controls are solid and the physics, while on the arcade side of the spectrum, definitely give you the impression that you are in fact driving a rig, and not just a car from some run of the mill arcade racer. This game has alot of character and ambiance; borrowing elements from such cliches as Smokey and the Bandit and the stereotypical trucker way of life. All in all, I highly reccomend this game to anyone who wishes to escape for a weekend and enjoy the sights, sounds, and ambiance of a very well pieced together game that embodies the cliches of what being a trucker is all about.

    A very enjoyable, albeit short lived game. The graphics are top notch and the cockpit view of the road gives a excellent impression of actually commanding the rig yourself. This is very much an arcade style racer, so don't expect the most accurate of physics. Still, it is never short on fun and the AI is fairly challenging.

    Excellent game! Far too short, but LOTS of fun. If you enjoyed Crazy Taxi or even Sega Rally, you will love 18 Wheeler. It has superb graphics and catches the ambiance of what trucking is all about.

    This game was a rip off! It's not even fun with the hard AI that u have 2 race.

    It's a pity that nobody remembers how long lasting and enjoyable arcade games can be. The best way that I can describe this game for what it really is worth is that this is "Sega Rally" on 18 wheels, trade record times for record scores and you have a single player game that will go toe to toe with the rally classic. I love it!

    Short but fun. Excellent inertia effects on the truck and some solid graphics along the way.

    I wish I would have read your board ahead of time. Beat the game in just 3 hrs of game play and was disapointed badly with the ease. Had more fun in the arcades with it when I thought it was tough.

  1. Not recommended for those who crave speed. Remember folks, you won't be driving a Skyline, NSX, or even a Gremlin. You will be at the helm of a big diesel monstrosity. Head down a straightaway, give your 500hp vehicle some juice and your will notice an 80 mph top speed.
  2. An all too familiar Sega story: a refreshing new take on an old genre, featuring great control, sharp graphics, but crippled by lack of depth.

    A blast while it lasts, but when you're done, you won't find much more fun. 10-4 that, good buddy.
