    I haven't been a very devout fan of the series but decided to purchase "American Long Haul" via internet download for $10. The game is pretty cool, lots of trucks to try out and a faily large range of cargo options. Some of the cool features I thought are that you can make money buying and selling used trucks. Overall this game is many hours of fun if you are into the trucking simulator genre and an inexpensive price tag.

    Compared to other 18 Wheels Of Steel games, this one has especially stunning graphic. We are very impressed with the product, especially for the price. There are just a few, minor glitches in it, but that's to be expected with any game and it adds a little bit of fun. Once we got the hang of it, we''ve been cruising down the highway at top speed. The different views make it easy. It is a very versitalle games when you are doing the campoaign. If you have trouble back up, etc. then there's easy, and, if you're feeling a little more adventurous, you can try medium. And if you're INSANE, there's HARD!! It's a awesome game and we are very satisfied. Thank you Amazon!

    This game is pretty much what it advertises to be. A trucking company simulator type driving game. All the major features of driving across North America and hiring other drivers while buying and selling trucks and making company contracts are there.

    This is a very easy play, relaxing game that is great enjoyment when you don't want heart pounding extreme action every nano second. There are the occasional bugs and weird spots in the game though.

    Most complaints about the game that I have seen are about graphics. Things like the cities are cardboard looking, there are no people walking the streets etc. There is really nothing wrong with the graphics for the game, or the designers graphics decisions when making the game. These remarks seem to be shallow complaints against a mostly good product.

    The next biggest complaint I've read is about the quality of the cities themselves. This item has some merit but generally the cities in this game are not supposed to be the main arena. The back drop of cities flows well from the interstate into the city core. They could use a few more businesses in some cities and the inclusion of more major cities and a little more distance between them would be nice. Otherwise the cities function well as transport hubs, which they are.

    There are some issues with the game that I haven't read in other reviews that are a little bothersome. The interstate system needed to be designed better. They did a good job of copying the interstate look and feel, but not the actual system. Most interstates across the US are 2 lane roads with an occasional 3rd lane that functions as an entry/exit ramp. 3 lanes are usually only found around major cities.

    They loaded it on our six year old PC, and it didn't choke it, running XP with 4GB of RAM. They play it often, and though they like to crash into stuff, they also learn that crashes have consequences, including damage and tickets. It's almost like life, so I like it very much.

    I like the games overall concept, but has some very annoying issues. The negatives first. No instructions, not even a tutorial. You start the game in a parking lot with no direction as to where to get work, controls, nothing. I had to use the internet to find out how to hire drivers, give them work, and what the upgrades mean. This is probably the most annoying for me. The game should have a manual with the download, or at least a link to get one. Second, there are some bugs. Right now my truck is stuck on a median in L.A. Going forward or backward does nothing, the truck just sits there. Only thing to do is is reload from my last save. Also sometimes you hit things that show plenty of clearance. Third is the exit signs make no sense sometimes. Somewhere on I-40 at one interchange( It think it is with I-35) all three signs say I-40. Also the directions are wrong sometimes, and some aren't even marked. Other than that the game is not bad. Just takes a lot of extra effort to figure out how to play, which for a paid game you shouldn't have to. But just have to get in the habit of saving your game often. Had a few lockups so far after dropping off a load before I could save.

    I tried this simulation on/for a free 60 minute trial and I loved it even though most of the game was spent loading and freezing. But, for the time that I that I did get to play, I enjoyed it a lot. It's just like "Bus Driver" {also by SCS} but more detailed with more trucks and many trailer picks(For example; "Single heavy log", "Excavator", Oversized tube" etc.). This game, in my opinion, is nicely priced too. Even the disc-versoin is nice. I just bought this because i didn't want to wait for shipping.

    But it does have limits. During gameplay, if you have on the rear-view mirriors, it slows the game down. All you have to do is turn it off though. This is probably the starter 18 wheels game; for beginners, in my opinion (which is what i am; a beginner :I ). Of the series.

    This game is totally worth it and i would reccomend it to anyone. Especially the simulation-likers ;)

    95% good 5% okay/bad
