3.0 out of 5 stars A word of warning, 22 Feb. 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: UK Truck Simulator (CD-ROM)
If you're new to SCS trucking games, here's a quick heads up for you. I'm going to get the bad points (niggles if you like) out of the way 1st. If you try to take a corner too fast (especially when coming off a motorway), the truck without warning goes into death dealing understeer which more often than not will send you into the barriers. Imagine hitting a very large patch of black ice and you'll get the idea. On some exits even 30 MPH will send you off the road. With this being said, you'll soon get a feeling for what's too fast ingame.
Another niggle I have is that cars will not give way when joining a motorway. I've been driving down the middle lane only for a car to come barreling out of an on ramp, cut across the slow lane and straight into the side of my truck. Not only do I get damaged by this, but I also get fined too much to my annoyance.
On to the good points, I like the graphics in the game and I do think they're a step up from Euro Truck Simulator. As pointed out previously, they've added more trucks which is a bonus. They've also changed the way you start in the game too. In ETS, you were your own boss with your own truck but in this game, you start working for a haulage firm on routes they decide upon. Later you'll get job offers from other firms offering larger percentages and eventually you'll be able to start your own business.
I think UK Truck Sim is going to be a game which you'll either love or hate and for that reason I have to give it an average score. If you've played any of the SCS truck games before, you'll know what to expect from this.
