very very good, but---------------------------------------------------------

being an ex trucker this had a great appeal to me, i drove trucks for 12 years till i had to give up my liecence due to type 1 diabetes, now type 2, i was impressed with the detail on this sim, the trucks and trailers are modeled superbly and the land scape is clear and crisp, though at times a bit samey, i don`t remember that much greenery when i was driving, even when it rains the water hits the windscreen and the wipers clear it away and to say "experience life on the road" is a little bit naughty as it does`nt let the player have the fun of a freezing cold cab, flat tyres and batteries, and other delights of long distance trucking, any way i`m waffling, sorry, one thing i did notice, (don`t know if anybody has) was the steering on the game, at first it was very eratic and all over the road, i turned the steering senistivity right down and tinkered about with the other parameters until i found a happy medium then i was away, (obviously this depends on the type of controller you may have) having happy memories, all in all this is good fun and great value for money, and its nice to learn i can still reverese a 40ft trailer (after some practise) into a loading bay , have fun !!!!!!!!!!!!!
update update !!!!!!!!!!!
been playing for a couple of hours a day this week as mrs b has been away, i`m totally hooked on this, i`ve just gone independant and its great fun, i hope the publishers will bring out an add on disc with bigger units, heavier loads and more destinations, still having the occasional problem with the steering, it will suddenly jink to left or right which can be interesting at speed , still great fun though
yes still playing and doing quite well i now have five drivers working for me and i have a lovely a class man unit for myself, i had never expexted to have been hooked by this game but hooked i`ve been, i do hope excalibur bring out an expansion for this, more routes and loads, heavier units would be nice and even a truck customiser would be nice to add lights and bells and whitsles and other shiney bits to your trucks , and yes the steering is still suspect but livable, still grest fun to play
