This is a truck driving game. That's it. Your basically a delivery driver doing jobs for business owners to help them build up there businesses. They speak to you through text. Who cares. Anyway, the driving really isn't all that impressive. There is no physics to the trucks or any vehicles in the game. You can speed at 100km/h, slam the handbrake and take a turn at 60km/h while with a trailer and nothing bad will happen. No skid marks, you won't flip or take the turn on two wheels.
If you crash into things, your vehicle will take damage shown as a health bar. You can fix, customise and buy trucks at the only garage at the bottom of the map. Very inconvenient. You'll have to refuel at petrol stations and sleep at designated areas.
When completing a mission you'll be rewarded with XP and money. XP allows you to unlock little boosts that improve the overall experience like earning more XP or money or just less fuel.
Gameplay is like GTA V when following the road rules. There are no real consequences for speeding, crashing, driving on the curb or cutting off other drivers. There are 'speed cameras' but when you're earning 1000+ money for a job and paying 250 - 400 money for a ticket, who cares, right?
This is just a very straight forward driving game with mundane missions to pass the time.
For a driving game, it's fun. It's fun overtaking vehicles at 100km/h and slamming on the brakes. It's fun driving into town at 80km/h on the wrong side of the road. As a simulator - forget it. The game performs well. You have graphics options to favour resolution or graphics.
I don't know what this game is supposed to be but...yeah? This game will get boring… Expand

Like putting yourI walked off this game with the impression that Truck Driver is the game you’d try to see if you’d enjoy a game like ETS2. Like putting your tiptoes into a pool to see if you can handle the water’s temperature.
It is more accessible and easier. Jobs don’t get as boring with much shorter journeys and the different stories give the campaign some extra spice to make the experience richer for newcomers.
That would make the game recommendable for those willing to get into simulators but, then, there’s the issue of the bugs. There are a million different ones so, even though the game has gotten patched quite often since the game released, Truck Driver, in my opinion, is still not in a “recommendable” state.… Expand

Devs need to squashThe game looks good and is very chill, decent enough for a console truck sim, but falls way short of the PC selections. Devs need to squash some bugs, but nothing game breaking that I've experienced so far. The world has a bit more character than the other games of this type, characters with dialogue and all that, and the seaside landscape is nice. The graphics are a bit more stylized and colorful, but not incredibly detailed, which isn't a bad thing necessarily. The realism and control details are fewer here, making it more "casual" to a degree, but this also isn't a bad thing, but they need more to back up the experience as a trade-off.
There needs to be more variety and more challenge, though. More penalties for speeding, collisions, time limits, and things like that, more AI vehicles and other trucks on the road, more pedestrians, etc. Maybe even some random events to keep players on their toes, like car breakdowns/wrecks, etc. (this would be a unique addition that I'd love). Dynamic weather is a must. And of course some map expansion would be nice, since it is a bit too small for this type of game.
I don't think anyone expects this to topple ETS/ATS, but with some tweaks and additions, it can be a respectable alternative for consoles, or at the very least not be laughed off the internet once it releases for PC, because as of right now ETA/ATS are so far ahead that TD in its current state has no chance to compete. Hopefully Soedesco can show people that they have what it takes to support their game, which their reputation up to this point hasn't been too good in that regard. I'll certainly raise my score if they do, since this game really has potential to carve out its own niche in the genre.
Edit: I've raised my score a bit since Soedesco has come out and said they have acquired another developer for the game and are committed to future improvements and updates.
Edit 2: Mid 2020 and they've barely done anything with the game. A few bug fixes and engine update, but brings with it just as many new bugs. Still no map expansion. It might still happen, and I hope it does, and to their credit they're still working on the game, but updates are too slow.… Expand

Works fine at first but once you get to third mission for construction crew, you can’t get load, the wheels are in the concrete. So can’t move forward in career mode, and game crashes every 10-15 minutes.… Expand
