King Truck

So this is Hard Truck 2: King of the Road, a trucking simulator from 2002. Part of the Hard Truck series, from which Hard Truck: Apocalypse, that I played a few days ago, is a spin-off. I didn't really know what I could write for this, as it a trucking simulator, so I made I recorded my 20 minutes of playing it and have uploaded it to Youtube for your viewing boredom pleasure. For some reason, Fraps decided to record the FPS counter, even though the game was running at like a thousand FPS, it just shows what it is for the video. Weird.

Slightly interesting moments of the video are: crashing into a river, crashing into a lake accidentally, crashing lots, Russians that drive on the wrong side of the road >:(, getting speed tickets, explosions, and getting into a Police Chase.

Looks kinda col, but i don't like the whole aspect of the competition. This looks like the game where you should just run around doing silly shit and get shot by cops. Where did you download/bought that?

Whilst that is essentially the way I played, I think taking cargo to destinations is the meat of the game, so it's kinda the point. I do think I plonked the game into arcade mode by accident as the menu was super screwed up and I couldn't see what was highlighted.
I bought it from Gamersgate with the rest of the 1C pack, and the alleged sequel to this game, Rig n Roll, is in there too, and that game is only 3 years old so it should be interesting.
