  1. As opposed to "King of Route 66," another $20 title that simply relies on such stereotypes, Big Mutha Truckers imports impromptu race challenges, various hauls, market-monitoring bartenders, biker pirates, loan sharks, and a ruthless extended family into classic arcade play. The game's got heart, shrouded though it may be.
  2. 69
    The surprising depth of the campaign mode, and the simple pleasures of smashing into oncoming traffic, helps negate the weak audiovisuals and onslaught of "yee-haw!" hee-haws.

    It really is fun for a while, but the monotonous gameplay will soon catch up with you. There are only so many times you can bring yourself to traverse the highway from Capital City to Greenback.
  4. The game's arcade elements aren't done well enough to ever balance with the simulation elements, and the end result is a game that's too wacky to be a sim game and too simulation-based to be an arcade game.
  5. Though the game is initially good fun, there just isn’t enough variety to sustain interest for too long, and I can’t see myself picking it up again anytime soon for another blast.
  6. Gamers will quickly grow tiresome of the same challenges and back-and-forth monotony.
  7. A weekend rental for those looking for a big rig fix, but it has trouble keeping its momentum up over the long haul.
  8. A simple and fun game that unfortunately gets old quickly.
  9. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    I recommend Bug Mutha Truckers for the occasinal distraction or one-nighter, but don't expect it to keep you entertained for the long haul. [Aug 2003, p.111]
  10. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    You can only truck for so long before things start to get stale. [Aug 2003, p.97]
  11. GameNow
    Since there are no multiplayer options, replay value is kept to a bare minimum once the ride's all over. [Aug 2003, p.35]

I borrowed this game from my friend, and I probably shouldn't have. I think that it was a complete waste of my time. Some others would probably think otherwise though. I think that there should have been more options throughout the game. Full Review »
