Hard Truck 2
The scene is laid out in modern times. The place is somewhere close to a massive mountain. A network of roads, connecting small towns covers the region. Each town has a depot that puts in orders for goods, as they are consumed by the townsfolk. The cargo is delivered by trucks. The player is one of the long-haul truckers who runs about the region looking for a gainful order and peddles wares from town to town. The profit depends on the shortage of the merchandize delivered, so the quickest player makes the most.
As the game goes on, a successful driver can upgrade the truck or change it to another one, and then is able to buy another (and another, etc.) truck and even hire a bankrupted rival. The strategic goal of the game is to monopolize the delivery business.

A masterpiece of its time!dmxgordon | Aug. 29, 2012 | See all dmxgordon's reviews »
The game was released in September, 2000. At that time it was the best truck simulator and for the enthusiasts it is a great game for the collection, brings up alot of memories. Worth buying.

This game lacks originality and adventure. There's nothing much to do except drive trucks that all look the same and that too drive them in a generic environment which was poorly made. The graphics are very stale and grainy. I don't recommend this game if you are into simulators because there are many MANY better simulators that have a lot more to put on the plate than this lousy one.

The strong points of the game are the variety of trucks, the sound and the soundtrack. Twenty and more truck, each with own sound, helps surely to empathize us in the game and find variety to continue the game, otherwise repetitive. The graphics isn’t so good, now looks old.
The landscape is really bad, full of pixeling. I recommend to try this game if you like trucks or do you want try to drive something different.
