  • Summary: It's a redneck family fight to see who inherits the family trucking business. As one of four zany characters in Big Mutha Truckers including Bobbie-Sue, Cletus, Earl, and Rawkus, you have 60 days to earn the most money by hauling cargo. Drive various massive 18-wheelers around five cities as you battle bikers, avoid truck-jackers, outrun the corrupt police force, and discover new routes and bonuses. The race to the finish is full of obstacles--don't let anything get in your way. Expand

  1. A few hours later and with huge smiles on the faces of the whole team it was obvious that Empire’s racer is actually something very special – an original idea which actually works.
  2. Relatively funny, has an excellent soundtrack, a bunch of cool missions, and a clever economy mechanic. Why the mediocre score? You're in a truck. Driving a semi will just never be fun. [Sept 2003, p.121]

    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.
  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. Although not the masterpiece of AM2’s "18 Wheeler American Pro Trucker," Big Mutha Truckers sets out to give the player an enjoyable truck-driving game, and it accomplishes its purpose.
  6. 60
    There's nothing deep in Big Mutha Truckers, of course, but the humorous gameplay makes this a surprisingly fun driving game, especially for only $20. Offbeat, distinctive, and reasonably original, there's nothing else like it on the Xbox.
  7. There's not a lot to Big Mutha Truckers, and what exists is forgettable.[Aug 2003, p.81]

    If you liked Redneck Rampage, this is a hilarious stereo-typical redneck game, with pretty good hick one liners. & for $20 it was well worth it!

    Fun and funny game with pretty good gameplay. Great story and hilarious bits. Solid mission mode. Much more fun than King of Route 66.

    I thought it'd be fun, but I was way off.
