About

Heed the call of the open road, throw the gears in motion and take off in a tractor trailer. Drive faster than your competition, haul your cargo across the entire United States and feel the wind in your face as you control your own destiny. Blast the horn and build a career in the fast-paced world of trucking.
Keep in mind that there's more to being a successful businessman than just driving fast. You've got to manage your money, keep your rig running smooth and watch out for speed traps that might trip you up. Bad weather? Fuel troubles? Tricky loading docks that require pinpoint precision? It's all part of life in the cab of a 18-wheeler. If you've got the guts, jump in a truck and head out for the highway.

18 Wheels of Steel: Across America reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
The Second game of the series "18 Steel Wheels", despite not outstanding graphics, made a rather big step forward in comparison with the debut of SCs in the genre of cargo simulators. If in "Hard Truck: 18 Wos" You did not play, you will have to believe me, because it for some reason in the steam is not, and therefore I'll be old to avoid comparisons with it. So, what do we have? From the first seconds in the menu we are greeted by a rather cheerful meta-like music. Here you can see what trucks and trailers are in the game, change the settings (they are not so much, and hardly you have to change them with the maximum values, on modern PC game simply can not zalagat) and choose the game mode. They Differ only in their purpose. You need to either transport the cargo across the country faster than others, or overtake the competitors in the dispute "who will earn a million faster?" or just ride for fun. What can the game attract in 2018? 1. If you want to look at the great grandfather of Euro Truck, you can do it at a very modest price. 2. The Second (and last) game SCS where visual damage is realized. 3. "Neutral" graphics. It is Difficult to write it in pros or cons, but the appearance does not delight, but the other side and not annoying. And also works on the atmosphere. 4. Author's Hard Rock soundtrack from about 20 songs. By "Copyright" I mean that no one knows who recorded these tracks. Apparently, the developers have invited musicians from the nearest transition. However, this was not affected by the quality of the songs. You can Listen. 5. There are random events. Only Two kinds: road accidents and repair. But it's not bad. 6. Different climatic zones. The North with snow, the center with Woods, coast with palm trees, and places and deserts come across. 7. The MoD Manager though not, as well as the abundance of Vasyanskih Kamazov, some mods on the internet can still be found. 8. You can tune the truck. 9. There are negotiations on the walkie-talkie. 10. Though the game proudly positions itself as a simulator to play it can, and most likely, you need on the keyboard. Now to minus 1. The game has 20 cities, but many of them look like twins, however, this all releases SCS suffered up to ets2. 2. How The economy works I do not understand. 3. Do not get out from behind the steering wheel for 12 hours and it will not work out of realism. After 3-4 in a row, the game starts to annoy. 4. We Do not have the usual control of the cameras, especially if you have played other parts. In General, the pluses more, and scold the game of childhood do not want. But Fortunately, despite the same engine, games from SCS over the past 15 years have jumped far ahead. So "On The roads of America" in the present reality will go well only for nostalgic sessions in the evenings. P. S Of Interesting. In the Steam sold version of the game 1.1. A long time ago, in the last decade in stores sold version 1.0 from Buki. In a later slightly improved graphics, added showroom, fixed bugs and... It is only in English, so if you are accustomed to the cool Frazochkam on the radio-will have to otvyit.
