"Put your trucks driving skills to the test!"

Overview

Trucks & Trailers is another high quality driving simulator by SCS Software, a Czech company known for meticulous attention to detail in every product they launch. Trucks and Trailers is a predecessor to Bus Driver and Euro Truck Simulator. Truck driving challenges are especially engaging for adults because you do not get to ride a fancy sports car and compete to win despite all laws of physics. On the contrary, Truck and Trailers is a highly demanding simulator. Precision, attention to detail, excellent spatial orientation are required to succeed. 50 individual truck driving challenges will keep you busy catering different types of cargo. You will have to think of how to park, transport, handle and unload the cargo, as well as stick to traffic rules and try not to kill yourself or someone else. Mastering controls will be one of the difficult tasks here. Demo version is fully featured, but limited to 30 minutes of gameplay only. However, it is enough to evaluate the game and decide whether it is a good purchase for you.

Installation

Installation comes clean, no surprises. CSC has proved to be a respectable publisher ever since we started reviewing its products. Minimum system requirements are Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7, 2.2 GHz CPU, 1 GB RAM (2+ recommended on Vista and Windows 7), 900 MB HD Space, 256 MB graphics accelerator (NVIDIA GeForce 7800 or better class, ATI Radeon 1800 class or better), DirectX 9 compatible sound card, DirectX 9.0.

Interface

The graphics in Trucks & Trailers is fantastic. The play is very realistic in sounds and details. The trucks, as always with SCS, are based on real models of cargo trucks. You will see the smallest details inside the driver’s cabin, like speedometer, fuel indicators, lights, wipers, and more. You have several cameras with different angles to choose from for better understanding of your driving tasks.

If you have dreamed of driving a huge gorgeous truck once in a lifetime, your dream will come true with this realistic detailed game.

Pros

  • You have 7 trucks and over 50 challenges to complete.
  • Extremely realistic and challenging.
  • Surprisingly addictive.
  • Trucks & Trailers offer challenging tasks in very realistic environment. You get to test your skills at parking; attaching and dropping the trailer; delivering cargo on time; sticking to traffic rules; fueling your truck at gas stations. Despite the seemingly simplistic challenges, the games turns out to be a ‘die hard’ in terms of achieving quick results.

Cons

  • Demo is somewhat short.

Alternatives

Bus Driver and Euro Truck Simulator by the same developer also provide unprecedented driving experience.

Conclusion

Truck and Trailers is an engaging and addictive driving simulator where a user experiences the real truck driving challenges. You need to complete the initial training period, after which you are assigned different cargo. You have to deliver those sometimes difficult to handle cargo on time. You gain reputation as you complete your assignments successfully. If you thought parking a huge long-haul truck is easy as pie, you might re-consider your attitude and start feeling some respect for truck drivers masterfully maneuvering their huge vehicles. The game is a pleasant contrast to trivial sports cars racing games.
