    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Everything well done in ETS2 has been integrated in ATS, the things we all hated in ETS2 have been upgraded and know to convince: graphics are much better, viewing distance is much increased and the cities, roads and traffic seem so much more realistic and alive. However, there are things to improve (within DLC) such as more trucks (licence issues), more states (DLC), and maybe some random events happening on the road to trucker paradise... 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. II 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. I gave 10, because of the future which ATS is holding. 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

    Overall, the game is excellent. The time taken to acquire the rights to the multiple brands found within the game are astounding. The basicOverall, the game is excellent. The time taken to acquire the rights to the multiple brands found within the game are astounding. The basic mechanics are sound and the graphics are excellent. The repetition of the missions can become stale after a while but the ability to hire and manage a stable of drivers adds a small amount of variety. The developers essentially modded the popular Euro Truck Simulator, and included the limited areas of both California and Nevada. With the addition of Arizona coming in a future DLC update. Overall the game is an excellent offering, and is a sound purchase for fans of both simulators and the ETS franchise. Expand

    2 trucks, essentially the same state and 2, you serious?
    Price in Russia at the level of the top games such as GTA 5, Assassins Creed, Far Cry, Battlefront.

    ATS is to short not polished at all . riddled with game breaking bugs . The critics must of never actually played it . they rave how awesomeATS is to short not polished at all . riddled with game breaking bugs . The critics must of never actually played it . they rave how awesome it is while it is broken and inaccurate on every level . IT IS NOT A SIMULATION just a driving 1A title cheap made .
    SCS has not changed their game format in 20 years the game feels dated out of the gate , you cannot get out and walk around or do what truckers do , After 20 years you are still stuck setting in the truck . The developers are inexperienced lack the knowledge to develop a true modern AAA title . Their games feel cheap cheap cheap .
