    This game looked good in the demo but it felt rushed

    Rated on April 17, 2006 by freeloader12

    This game looked good in the demo but it seemed rushed but it was not. This games problem is that it is way too short and buggy. The graphics look like butt even back then The music in the sounds are ...

    This is a disappointment. People can expect to grow tired of the monotony and the lack of excitement.

    This is a game which was expected to be quite successful. It reminded players of those times in the arcade when they would sit at the 'truck-driving game' and play for hours, beating everyone else's h...

    Get your big rig on the highway, in a quest to cross the country in the shortest amount of time.

    Rated on July 22, 2006 by Lokar

    This game is very different from all other racing titles. You drive an 18-wheeler, as the name suggests, and your job is to beat all the other trucks in a chase to the end of the line. The routes incr...

    Not as good as it sounds. "most people look forward to a hardcore trucking game, but this is a total let down"

    Rated on May 26, 2007 by CALSTERMANW

    This game is a lot better in arcade form but on the small screen with a ps2 pad in your hand it just defeats half the fun in the game. The only reason why it passed as a arcade game was because the o...

    Like Crazy Taxi lite

    Rated on January 12, 2006 by bardockkun

    The game could've been something better if only it had a little something more. While Crazy Taxi had a large city to explore, 18 Wheeler had a very linear pace with getting from point A to point B. ...

    Simplistic rental recommended for a time killer.

    Rated on September 20, 2006 by Zelda_fan2005

    I was able to get this game for free since I had a Dreamcast and I had burnt games for this system and this was one of them. Not a terrible game but not a great one, just a time killer really. Graphi...

    Good game to waste a few hours.

    Rated on March 20, 2006 by GWARslave

    I didn't expect this game to be so short, especially driving across America! But it was fun while it lasted. Only thing is, there's not much replay value once you beat the game once. Other than parkin...

    Yes it's short, but fun to replay.

    Rated on April 11, 2009 by gilbertroman

    18 Wheeler for the Dreamcast is under-rated by many. The biggest complaint is it's short length. I admit I wish this version had a least one if not two more tracks, but the four it has are great. Ever...

    This game is based on a trucker's life of driving from truck stop to truck stop...and it's just as exciting as it sounds

    Rated on February 23, 2008 by wiredscotty

    Ah, truckers. The backbone of America. Our favorite, reliable, dirty, foulmouthed, road soldiers. The one's we count on to get all of our necessary and less than necessary crap. They should be revered...

    good driving game my father liked :)

    Asphalt Cowboy — He has the best all-around truck, and is perfect for beginners. Long Horn — His truck is the slowest of the group, but it's also the toughest, most durable vehicle. Stream Line — His ...
