About

Unlike contemporary simulators, the 14 main missions are all part of one story. The goal is to send a space shuttle to the International Space Station. Your tasks will be, among others:
• To crush mountains,
• To move tons of earth,
• To cut metal constructions
• To mine radioactive ores,
• And to transport (rock, ore, machines… and even a space shuttle!!)

Our machines have the following features:
• Accurately recreated cockpits and models,
• Completely analog controls of actuators and cranes,
• Full physics simulation (no cutting corners!).

Your campaign takes place in 6 different geographical localizations: Greenland, Canada, Wyoming, Missouri and Florida. Thanks to a detailed depiction of the machines, you will be able to appreciate the magnitude of those beasts (compared to a human, a car and buildings placed on the map). You can also explore the machine in first person perspective; the wide view from the cockpit will immerse you in the world of really heavy machinery.

An alternate gameplay mode is Time Attack. It is unlocked after you complete the story mode (campaign), and is comprised of selected missions. The rewards for completing a mission in a set time are bronze, silver and gold medals, and your entry into the high scores.

Your hunger for knowledge will be satiated by the Machine Library. This small encyclopedia with 3D models will broaden your knowledge of the biggest machines man has ever built. Technical parameters and performance data included.

Machines available in Giant Machines 2017:
• Bagger – a giant among giants – a machine capable of tearing down mountainsides
• Crawler – a standard transport platform… for space shuttles
• Demolition – a demolition machine – for cutting steel pipes and massive scaffoldings
• Bulldozer – indispensable when you have a couple tons of earth/snow or minor objects to move
• Dumper – good for those times when you need to move a whole week’s worth of mine output
• Digger – as the name implies, it digs in rocks – both horizontally and vertically
• Car crane – moving several tons of containers was never this easy!

Giant Machines 2017 reviews and comments

As a Fan of such Games, I was looking forward to it. However, I have to say that my Expectations have not been met. Not misunderstanding, the Game isn't grotten-bad, it even has a few really good Approaches, but overall it can't convince me. The Vehicles are mostly designed in a passable way, the Driving Behavior is often very spongy (for Wheeled vehicles) or funny (E.g. when Turning tracked Vehicles), but the Sound is only grotto poor. For example, if two 16 cylinders jump on at the Crawler, but it sounds like a Tucktuck, then something falls by the Wayside. Unfortunately, the German Translation also leaves something to be desired, but you have no Problems as a result. For big Fans of these Giants, the Game may be worth considering in the Sale, but in general I have to advise against it.

Summary: For 15.99€ on Offer and definitely a Must for Fans of large Machines! 9/10 Long Version: I thought a little before buying me. Then I thought that I could play it for 2 Hours:D So make it my way. The first Mission was already graphic (ultra) and technically so cool that I pulled it through within almost 5 Hours. I didn't know if I'll like it and if it was worth playing. Then When I saw the Mitshines, the Environments and the Atmosphere, the Hype was real. It makes mega whimsy And is an absolutely ingenious Adventure. Negative Point 1: What I still lack is an Editor for your own Maps and Missions, which you can also play part-/. Negative Point 2: The 14 Missions are fun and eventful (Rocket ... xD), but for me a little too few.

Very well done Simulation. BUT just for Fans of big Construction Equipment. For me personally, this is nothing, but I make a Recommendation. The Game is well implemented and the Graphics are good and happy to eclipse some Simulators from this Genre. A German Translation is available, but somewhat flawed in some Places. That doesn't really bother, though. A Little more disturbing is the Control of some Vehicles. As soon as the Vehicle can drive faster than 30km/h, the Control quickly acts as if you were driving over a frozen lake. A non-existent character is controlled from the ego perspective. The Camera perspective can be switched in the vehicles, but a Person driving the Vehicle does not exist. The Environment is also completely empty, no other Vehicles or People. So I recommend this Game though, as it is quite well done for Fans of such Simulators and the Price is also perfectly fine. But if, like me, you expect a little more Depth of Play, you will probably be disappointed.
