    Even if you're not the fan of the 18 wheelers, do yourself a favor and try this game. Nothing can replicate that peculiar feeling of driving across the States at 4AM while your radio is tuned to "Road to hell".

    American Truck Simulator scratches the exact same itch that Elite: Dangerous does. While they’re vastly different games, both evoke a sense of the wide open road, of the perfect road trip. Both give you freedom and put you in control of your own destiny and your own direction. Both are ridiculously compelling and they let you set your own pace.

    Excellent successor of Euro Truck Simulator holds to proven concept and adds a few nice features but currently it suffers from an acute shortage of content. [Issue # 261]

    Driving from A to B to C and back - it's a good job simulation with lots of atmosphere but also with room for improvement.

    American Truck Simulator reflected the anxious reality, but also allowed me to appreciate the grandeur of it all. I can finally see what I presume most other Americans have always enjoyed: Endless waves of asphalt paved just for me, veining the contiguous southwest, begging to be casually traversed.

    ATS will surely appeal to trucking veterans who are desperate to explore a fresh location, but for newcomers to the franchise, I implore you, go back and experience Euro Truck Simulator 2 first.

    American Truck Simulator is not a completely new game. Despite whatever its developers say, this is just a big stand-alone expansion for Europe Truck Simulator 2, complete with the same engine, UI and all-too familiar problems.

I know ATS world isn't going to be any different - but from what I see so far the game has incredible feeling of American roads. Jumping back in for more. Expand

    I you compare ATS to the few years old DLC rich Euro Truck 2, you can say its small. But remember Euro Truck how did it start? Same small.

And the game itself is great. :) Expand

If you are find simulation games fun and are comfortable with simply driving around and enjoying the view you will enjoy this game. However if repetitive game play and pure simulation isn't your thing you will quickly become bored and want to move on. The graphics aren't great but they are hardly terrible. For the right person tho, this game is great. Expand

    American ats:
    Ets 2 dx 9 ( improved but still same old crap )
    Same pathetic physics from ets 1 sdts ets 2 ( same engine )
    NO dmg models ( LOL )
    No plausible, authentic physics
    Even smaller world scale so far in the 2 current available states nevada and california
    Pathetic redarded on rails AI thats not even worthy of the name ai ( also it doesnt obey the same physics as the player )
    Idiotic road signs stop from 65 mph to 0 in 1 meter ( devs are living in their own little world thats got nothing to do with the real one )
    Unreal ramps / exits/ highway exits ( too short , narrow )
    Unfinished game as it is

    Its not a simulator its an truck driving game whoever thinks its playing a simulator its either a lunatic or paid by scs to advertise it, at any rate if you loved ets 2 ats is the same only in america this time.

    There is not a lot I can say about this game other than it's a clone of Euro Truck Simulator 2 with less vehicles, the only real changes areThere is not a lot I can say about this game other than it's a clone of Euro Truck Simulator 2 with less vehicles, the only real changes are now cities are a bit bigger and more varied and you can choose two different parking options.
    Certainly they're going to add more to this game but that will most likely come in the form of paid DLC, for the price ETS 2 has much more to offer.
