    Ah ... the freedom of the open road. Ever thought about saying goodbye to your worries and becoming a professional truck driver? Thanks to Acclaim's adaptation of the arcade hit 18 Wheeler American Pro Trucker, you can.

    18 Wheeler American Pro Trucker puts you behind the wheel of 20-ton, 60-foot-long big rigs as they cruise coast to coast and everywhere in between. Far from a boring drive, it'll take some slick steering and solid shifting to deliver your goods in one piece.

    18 Wheeler American Pro Trucker features five drivers, six mini-games and four different raceways. You can team up with a buddy for some two-player truckin', and taunt your rival drivers with your trusty CB radio.

From uk.playstation.com:
    Keep on truckin' as you get behind the wheel of 20 tons of bone-shaking, road-churning metal in the PlayStation 2 console version of this classic arcade truck game. Your rig can combine with up to 10 different sets of trailers, each carrying every kind of load from logs and cars to even an oil tank; and you'll be hauling tail across 10,000 miles of highway, including stages in New York, California and everywhere in between. Beware of obstacles along the way though, whether it's other trucks and rival drivers taunting you over CB Radio, to treacherous mountain paths and cranes dropping girders in your path.
