Big Mutha Truckers is one of those games that will amuse. While not frustrating, it's not the world's greatest game realistically so the comedy side and angle works well. I like it, it's nothing too serious but it had me addicted and laughing along while I played cletus the slack jawed yokel.

Neben dem bereits beschriebenen Truckerleben gibt es noch einen weiteren Spielmodus. Im Missionsmodus müssen verschiedene Aufträge nacheinander ausgeführt werden. Da sollen z.B. Geschenke am Muttertag pünktlich ausgeliefert, andere Truckfahrer beim „Trucktauziehen“ besiegt oder eine Ladung Popcorn zum Kino gebracht werden, die mit dem Wasser aus am Straßenrand stehenden Hydranten gekühlt werden muss. Grafisch gibt es auf der PS2 bessere Spiele, so dass die gelegentlichen kurzen Slowdowns nicht unbedingt nachvollziehbar sind. Für eine erhöhte Langzeitmotivation können Cheats freigespielt werden, die z.B. einen neuen Truck bringen oder dafür sorgen, dass man nicht mehr tanken muss. Ein größeres Fahrtgebiet und mehr Städte wären mir persönlich jedenfalls lieber gewesen.

Game Informer Magazine
his is the best trucking title. Is that possible? Yes, it is. Big Mutha Truckers isn’t a marquee game, but it does make this sub-genre (are truckers a demographic?) more interesting. Saying that Big Mutha needs more freedom and faster driving may sound damning. However, the game’s got a great head of steam going already, and it’s definitely got more teeth than the other slack-jawed truckers already on the road.

Big Mutha Truckers ist eine merkwürdige, aber durchaus reizvolle Mischung. Als Rennspiel geht es nicht durch, dazu fehlen die stetigen Rennen. Eine Simulation ist es schon gar nicht, dazu ist das Fahrmodell viel zu simpel. Womit haben wir es hier also zu tun? Mit einer witzigen Mischung aus allem, mit einem Schuss Handelspart und viel Humor. Leider verliert sich die Langzeitmotivation in den begrenzten Handelsmöglichkeiten, denn hat man alle wichtigen Upgrades mal ausprobiert, fehlt irgendwie der Reiz um weiterzumachen. Doch für ein Spiel zwischendurch ist Big Mutha Truckers, nicht nur dank der klasse Musik, immer wieder gut.

Big Mutha Truckers has finally hit the Playstation 2 and the Xbox videogame systems. A trucking simulation based on redneck characters. Not I must ad that I live in the Florida Panhandle at the moment, and I can honestly say that the characters in this game are not fictional, they are real. I HAVE SEEN THEM IN PERSON! Redneck Truckers! Now that sounds like a lot of fun doesn’t it boys and girls? OK, well, maybe not. But I took a ride in this $20 game and here is my full review just for you!

It’s also worth mentioning that Big Mutha Truckers is a budget title and rings up for a cool $19.99 (U.S.). Hidden under than aww-shucks redneck exterior is the patented Eutechnyx difficulty (read-challenging) and a solid racing game with a unique buy/sell system that adds the much-needed replayabilty that the other big rig simulators lack.

While some critics would argue that an average game remains mezzo-mezzo regardless of price, I feel Big Mutha Truckers is undeniably more appealing at $20 than at $50; the surprising depth of the campaign mode, and the simple pleasures of smashing into oncoming traffic, helps negate the weak audiovisuals and onslaught of "yee-haw!" hee-haws.

Ya'll remember Sega's 18-Wheeler: American Pro Trucker? Well don't cha!? Yessir, that there was a Dreamcast race drivin' title ported over from tha arcade, and then ported over again there to tha PlayStation 2. Its concept: become a truck driver an' race a rival across tha country ta deliver a package of some sort. While it ain't been tha most successful of them games, it did introduct a real fine idea fer publisher THQ an' developer Eutechnyx ta take on over. Wit' Big Mutha Truckers, yer not only some no name trucker...yer part of tha truckin' family bestin' yer siblings.

Though there haven't been a great number of games about the world of professional trucking, recent years have seen a notable increase in the number of truck driving games for both consoles and the PC. Most of these games, however, tend to revolve around truck racing and never really dive into the fascinating lifestyle of the pro trucker. Big Mutha Truckers, a game by UK-based developer Eutechnyx, tries to remedy this by combining a simulation-style, economy-based gameplay system with the campy, over-the-top characters and storylines that have been so prevalent in previous trucking games. Unfortunately, Big Mutha Truckers falls short of successfully achieving this goal and thus never fully reaches its potential.

Sadly, victory is a long ways off for budding truckers, and I often found myself thinking I was doing really well only to visit Ma Jackson and discover I was in last place. What's more, though the game is initially good fun, there just isn't enough variety to sustain interest for too long, and I can't see myself picking it up again anytime soon for another blast. With a little more content this could well have been a winner, but ultimately this one is bound for the shelf of doom. It's certainly worth a rental, but I would find it hard to recommend a purchase.

Un jeu assez sympathique qui devrait plaire aux fans d’arcade un peu bourrins sur les bords. Les défis sont assez variés et la durée de vie conséquente malgré le peu de modes de jeux. On relèvera une conduite à la physique agréable, l’originalité du mode principal, bien que pas encore super au point, et enfin une bande son excellente.

"Ma Jackson, owner of Big Mutha Truckers Inc., has announced to her four kids that she's planning on retiring. Choosing the new owner of the company will not be easy though - Ma's four kids are a difficult bunch.

While gamers everywhere are having a good time smashing up cars and racing customized rvehicles sometime around midnight, there are those of us that want to know what it’s like to be on the open road driving a truck filled with goods city folk are demanding. Big Mutha Truckers, though, is not your average trucking simulator. It’s a tongue-in-cheek look at the life of a small group of truckers out get their fortune as well as the approval of dear old Ma. Sibling rivalry just doesn’t get any better than this . . . or does it?

Worth Playing
Have you ever wanted to be behind the wheel of an 18 wheeler and feel the power behind those trucks and their potential? I certainly have. In the PS2 version of Big Mutha Truckers, I was able to live the dream and experience it first-hand (as far as a video game will allow, at any rate).
