  1. It's not funny, interesting, or particularly fun on any front, and it isn't going to be appealing to anybody without the lowest of lowbrow senses of humor.
  2. I had a few laughs with Big Mutha Truckers 2, but even I had a hard time finishing. It shows that a game can go wrong when you try to change the best parts and this one had me shaking my head many times throughout the whole story.
  3. With unimpressive, if serviceable, graphics and a gameplay core that's overly repetitious at best, this is one big rig game you don't want to hitch a ride from.
  4. The visuals are the best part of the game, so it at least has that going for it.
  5. What is tedious about BMT2 is the glut of relentless jokes at the expense of gays and hillbillies. They're awfully cheap. [Dec 2005, p.112]
  6. For all its wit and swagger, Truckers is inescapably safety-conscious, rewarding the maintenance of a planned route and steady trajectory while more arresting notions - spontaneous risk, for example - fall from the back like poorly fastened cases of moonshine. [Sept 2005, p.99]

    An average-looking game with a number of above-average ideas that ultimately fail to elicit the sense of excitement you should have while playing.
  8. The fact that the graphics are so impressive, and the road maps so brilliantly extensive, only adds to the disappointment of the overall experience.
  9. 38
    Even though this is a budget title, I recommend that you save your $19.99 and put it towards a driving game that will keep you entertained via the actual racing mechanisms, rather than the same running joke.
  10. A disappointment. It is quite simply more of the same. If you liked the original PS2 game, there's nothing really new here that requires a purchase.
  11. Foist this game on a hated enemy; it's surprising a bomb this big doesn't come ticking. [Oct 2005, p.70]
  12. Problem is, it ain't nuthin' we ain't seen before. When not running from the cops a la "Driver," you're making deliveries like in "Crazy Taxi"-both of which would be a lot more fun if your rig wasn't slow and sluggish like Eminem with his medicine.
  13. No bells, no whistles, just boring repetitive driving. So boring in fact that I actually nodded off twice while playing it one Sunday afternoon.

    Much inferior to the original in terms of well, everything.

    I like the premise, and the driving is done alright, but the design is weak. The missions are tiresome, the story is ultra uninspired, and i I like the premise, and the driving is done alright, but the design is weak.
