  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. Instead of just driving around the country, how about opening up the entire country. I don’t want real-time cross-country driving realism, but we need more than five cities and the highways that connect them.
  5. With not much to offer in terms of modes or challenges that will keep you interested enough to see this one through the end, I could only recommend this one as a weekend rental.
  6. 63
    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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. It's as though the developers thought they were the first to poke fun at southern-fried truckers while many of us have been doing it for years already.
  11. Everything else gets repetitive pretty quickly, which has to be expected from a game based on redneck jokes. In small doses, that's great. I support mean-spirited humor on almost every level. But because the game's two focuses, driving and trading, are so shallow the humor is the only entertainment left.
  12. There's not a lot to Big Mutha Truckers, and what exists is forgettable.[Aug 2003, p.81]

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

    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.
