  • Summary: Get behind the wheel of a 60 foot long, 20 ton, 18-wheeled beast and buckle up as you haul tail from New York to California and everywhere in between. The PS2 version supports the Driving Force Racing Wheel, the Logitech steering wheel employed with with "Gran Turismo 3."

    With the lack of added features or graphical upgrades, it seems content to hang in the slow lane, while more ambitious PS2 projects pass it by. [Dec 2001, p.95]
  2. Although its gameplay isn't bad, the fact it's so short-lived means it will inevitably end up on the scrap heap.
  3. An all too familiar Sega story: a refreshing new take on an old genre, featuring great control, sharp graphics, but crippled by lack of depth.
  4. The most frustrating part of the game is the slow acceleration of the trucks, which as we all know is realistic, but something about barely moving just isn't too fun.

    The average player will become bored with it. [Jan 2002, p.125]
  6. Let me put it another way: this game has four racing levels. Four. With a couple of tries, you can beat the game in under an hour. I’m not kidding. An hour.
  7. The text book definition of 'rental', 18 Wheeler is an expensive one-joke bomb when bought for $50 but an appealing and (dare I say it?) fun driving game for the couple of hours that it took me to beat the crap out of it.

    Even though it is slow, it is also a challenge and the graphics are awesome. The bonuses are terrific.

    This is possibly one of the worst games I have ever played. Just a game for red-necks I reckon.
