  • Summary: Big Mutha Truckers 2 begins with Ma Jackson being taken into police custody for tax evasion. The only way she can win her case is by hiring Cousin Jacob, the most "fancy-talkin' legal fella" this side of Booger's Canyon. Players will be challenged to raise the cash needed to bribe jurors to let Ma off by trucking, trading, wheeling and dealing. The go-anywhere, any-time philosophy that was utilized in the original Big Mutha Truckers is expanded in Big Mutha Truckers 2 with additional routes, hidden shortcuts, and the ability to drive numerous vehicles. Players have the freedom to deviate from their route and explore the highways and back roads to whichever city they decide to visit. In addition, the trading process is streamlined, with more focus on the on-road action. [THQ] Expand

  1. To be honest, as a newbie to the series I didn’t expect the level of depth that Big Mutha Truckers 2: Truck Me Harder had to offer.
  2. After the novelty fades, Truckers 2 starts to feel more like a job than a game, as you realize life on the road is just one repetitive haul after another. [Oct 2005, p.128]
  3. Much like the unsubtleties of its title, Big Mutha Truckers 2 shows far too much too soon, and prematurely shoots its load before reaching the much pursued destination of Real Satisfaction. Sigh. A truckin' shame? Truck yeah.
  4. With very little to laugh at in terms of good jokes and repetitive missions, gamers might want to skip this one altogether.
  5. Like "Burnout" on horse tranquillizers. Only marginally less interesting.
  6. The actual gameplay follows a predictable pattern as you drive your big rig from point A to B while meeting specific requirements. There is very little if any originality or complexity present, so don’t expect anything revolutionary.
  7. No bells, no whistles, just boring repetitive driving. So boring in fact that I actually nodded off twice while playing it one Sunday afternoon.
