18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker (Sega Dreamcast review)

Developer: CRI
Publisher: Sega
Released: 2001

18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker is a racing game that was first released in the Arcade in 1999.

+ Each route is scenic and aesthetically pleasing, while the track design tests your skills by mixing in wide and narrow lanes.

+ Routes have intersections where you can choose between two paths, and the various lorry loads increase the challenge. 

+ Locating and smashing into certain vehicles for extra time acts as a great risk-reward mechanic to keep the tension high.

+ Slip-streaming is gratifying and (despite their size) the vehicles are easy to manoeuvre around tight bends.

+ Parking mode's skill-based challenges are fun and the mini-games help you to improve your weaving / cornering.

- A.I. of your rival trucker features aggressive rubber banding and at times they randomly stop in the middle of the road.

- Only contains four routes, so it's over rather quickly and there's little to keep your attention once you've seen the credits.
