American Truck Simulator reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Well done but still a lot of Air up. ATS, like ETS2, is a nice Game to relax after a stressful Day at work. The Graphics are fantastic on a wide screen monitor with TrackIR. Details and Textures are a Little better at ATS THAN at ETS2. The truck selection is disappointing. Only 2 Brands (Kenwood and Peterbilt with a total of 4 Models without Mods). The Route network could also give more. After 50% of discovered Roads, I haven't seen a single one that you couldn't easily handle with the weakest Truck in Half sleep. No tight Curves, no steep Gradients where Engine Brake or Retarder would really be needed. Those who only steer with the Keyboard may find the Game challenging-with a good Steering Wheel, it's easy. At ETS2 there were still deep Gravel Pits in which you could still work up a sweat with a heavy Trailer and a weak Tractor, but at ATS I have no Desire to upgrade my Truck, because I can overtake everyone already in the Basic Equipment. The Game has good Prerequisites (Graphics, Simulation) but still a lot of untapped potential in terms of Depth of Play and Long-term Motivation. A few Suggestions for the Developers:-dusty Gravel Roads and difficult Climbs (a little Inspiration from Spintires might do ATS well)-visible Dirt and visible Damage-Heavy-duty Trailers that can only be pulled with better Trucks (what the bring Weighing Stations, if there is no cargo that would be too heavy)-Illegal Cargo with the Risk of being caught (to that, ev. Tips on how to cycle Onto Sneaking paths of police locks)-Illegal Futures, for which you have to exceed Speed limits or Rest periods-Skurrile Hitchhikers to take with you (from Adventurer to stranded businessman to wanted Criminals are there a lot)-Acting Incorrectly AI (other Vehicles that drive too fast, Are tracked by The police, drivers Honking And showing one the Bird, Breakdown vehicles ...)-Art cars and overloaded RVs on the way to the Burning Man Festival in Black Rock City-One should be able to meet one's own Trucks-own Drivers with their own lives (Further Education, alcohol problems, Leg Breakage, pregnancy Leave, employee of The Month,...)-Cheap Occasion vehicles in poor Condition with corresponding Risks as long as You don't have Money for a new Truck yet, One-things can be improved with Mods for Sure. At ETS2 I also had the very nice TruckSimMap and a W900, until then a Gameup date came and my Game balance Could no longer be loaded. Since Then, I have seen Mods a bit sceptical, although some People are doing a fantastic Job here. The Game sure gets my Recommendation, but I hope the Developers make even more of it.
