    I'm amazed that this series keeps getting better and better, with newer features and improved graphics and AI. It's not that much different from previous titles, but different enough to recommend people to get. It's hard to believe that a budget truck simulation could be so rich on multiple levels (driving and business), but also relatively easy to jump into.

It's unrealistic in that you have to speed everywhere to get to places on time, but that's what also makes this sim a little more fun. There's nothing like topping 100 mph in an unstoppable rig and then realizing that your exit is coming up, swerving to miss stopped cars and flying around the corner at 30-40 miles per hour because you couldn't slow down in time.

    Without doubt is the best game of trucks. When playing it seems that we are same to the projection of a truck and no lacks no prominor to the game. I think that one upgrade with more truck and more cities made well and of this form it became it without doubts BEST GAME. Sorry my bad English.

    You guy's seem to be ignoring all the requests. Are you? The length of the red lights has to be reduced to the scale of time on the whole game. One hour is about 15 seconds, so scale the lights to that. Need better destinations from the furthest south point to the furthest destination north. From all of Canada to all of the usa.

Do you see, it,s the trucks we love, and want to see them, Like in(AA) Also the breaks are great, some people do not know wtat a jake breaks Is .Mayde you should edgeucate them,or teach me how to spell.

    Wonderful driving game to play. You'll need a wheel for the full advantage of playing it. It's not a racing game but you will need to learn to drive well to win.

    Great trucking game, and highly recommended. The best part is the radio/jukebox, which you can customize to your own tastes; I myself prefer TV theme songs, mostly of the past. That aside, there is a lot of maneuverability, and the map is great. The traffic is not bad either.

    Good game, best one of the series. Great to see timed deliverys,and fatigue added back. Should have kept some of the other modes from 18WOS:AA. Needs more truck choices, and the economic system is still way,way out of whack. Prices of trucks and parts realistic, pay for jobs about 10 times more than realistic.

The one problem with Pedal to The Metal is the length of the red lights. They are very long and i can wait for it to turn green before a full hour has elapsed. Please, i love this game but can you fix the kights.
