  1. It took seven years to finish this game. It's a bit like a huge box of Legos without a manual. Lot's of great parts, but it takes some time and work until everything fits together. With a bit more design it could have been a milestone of simulation games.
  2. Those looking for a truck driving sim will find a decent simulation here that doesn't really add anything new to the genre but doesn't significantly detract from it either. Those who are expecting a game that brings truck driving sims into the mainstream, however, will likely find themselves falling asleep at the wheel.
  3. Having had no other experience with big rig trucking simulators, I can't say how Rig'n'Roll compares to its competitors, but it seems to run fairly smoothly and accomplish what it sets out to do as a truck-driving and trucking business simulator.
  4. Rig'n'Roll could have become an interesting trucker simulation, but it is very monotonously and the truck-driving is most of the time more boring than fun. The simulation of the own trucker-company gives you a lot of possibilities, like employing some truck-drivers for you company and buying them different trucks to drive with and earn money for you.
  5. Rig'n'Roll is a lot more enjoyable than the subject matter might indicate, but after nearly a decade in production, it's still not completely finished. Bugs and flaws makes the experience less fun than it should have been.
  6. Rig'n'Roll tried to set the bar too high and failed. It's an interesting game, but way too off-balanced.
  7. Weird and mediocre truck simulation fails at the most important thing – there's no fun here. Maybe if you want to practice truck driving in California you appreciate the detailed road map. [Issue#191]

However this game is not the ultimate 18 wheeler game to get though; graphical details are more towards poor, jerky camera on the swing-man view and the lack of auto-save, which meant you would have to save manually every 10 minutes to prevent your data from being lost, and the addition of exits to warehouses that are easy to miss, so to match the reviews of the critics, this game deserves a six.

Before I played it, I thought they just drove from one warehouse to the other lining their pockets with cash. But once I found out that every time they bump into something, drive slightly off the road, or go ten miles over the speed limit they have cops trying to run them down to arrest them, that changed everything. I know this game is supposed to be a simulator, and I'm sure from time to time truckers do get arrested, especially coming back from Mexico, but did they really have to put that aspect into the game?

    I've played a few trucking simulators before and none of them had me getting ripped out of my cab, thrown to the hood of a car, and arrested for "assaulting a police officer". Seriously, I got arrested for that. When the heck did I assault a police officer? I haven't even gotten out of my truck! And why the heck does it always look like it's raining on my windshield, even when it isn't? Ugh. Okay, fine, whatever, that doesn't sound SO bad, right? Okay, but since when do truckers have to compete with one another to get their load to the warehouse first so they can get paid? Yep, this game makes delivering cargo into a race to the finish line with three other hungry truckers. Oh, you want money for food and other living expenses? Better get here first! What the heck is this, the Hunger Games? But what else did I expect from a 1C Racing game? I should have known better.

    Aside from the ridiculousness though, this game has some decent views, not such awful graphics, and once you get it configured with a controller (which is a massive pain in the butt), it isn't a complete mess. But don't get me wrong, this game should be avoided. Stay far, far away from this game. And if you actually want a good trucking simulator, pick up a copy of Euro Truck Simulator 2, that game is amazing. Unless you wanna pretend that in this game you're smuggling around a truckload of drugs to make it more believable. But who wants to use their imagination? We bought the game specifically so that we didn't have to do that!

I gave it a few hours.. but it were just too terrible to sit and play around with, at that time you couldn't even backup and pick up the cargo yourself, nor deliver it. It just 'happened' by itself when you were at the 'right' place. realistic roads?, maybe, but the rest of the game were too dull to bother continue to explore the maps
    I prefer Eurotruck Simulator 2 any day of the week and that one I'll give at least an 8.. compared to the 3 I too generously give this one

    Alright, I'll get straight to it. This game sucks compared to any other semi truck game. Why? Well, for one the graphics are terrible. IAlright, I'll get straight to it. This game sucks compared to any other semi truck game. Why? Well, for one the graphics are terrible. I understand this isn't the newest game, nor is it a high income game, but come on, we don't need N64 block graphics. Second is the game play itself. The trucks don't mimic a truck for squat. Hell, the trailer doesn't even swing. It's like a single solid movement. The controls aren't listed if you buy this on steam so have fun figuring them all out, and even when you do, they make absolutely no sense. When you're driving down the highway, it's damn near impossible to keep the truck in the lane, which leads to multiple visits by the cops. (Yes, you can get pulled over and issued tickets in this game) Other things you can't do: You can't back up to the trailer itself, the game does it for you. Same goes for unloading the cargo, you don't control it. The shifting is completely out of whack, and anyone with any knowledge of trucks knows this.

    All in all, if you want a good semi truck game, go check out euro truck simulator. Million times better.
