Ako ste fan, onda svakako nabavite ATS. Čak i ako niste, učinite sebi uslugu i odigrajte ovo, makar i u arkadnom modu. Doza zabave je veća nego u nekim izvikanim naslovima (jeste Need For Speed-u, mislim na tebe ), a ništa ne može da zameni osećaj vožnje u 4AM dok sa radija cepa “Road to Hell” .

Those looking for vast mechanical or design improvements in the series won't find them here. The map is relatively small, considering the size of America, but the tradeoff is worth it: the scenery is fresh, accurate, and varied, while cities feel much more realistic. With two trucks and two included states, and another one on its way, American Truck Simulator is an investment into the series' future, but it's not a steep one and easily earns its value with what is already presented.

American Truck Simulator is a game I'll be investing plenty of time into, and since it's priced fairly, I'm happy to invest more cash into it as well. See you on the road.
While a little more realism would make American Truck Simulator more fun, paradoxical as that may sound, there’s no escaping how fantastically playable it is. The low-pressure gaming makes a great escape into a fantasy of a familiar world, hauling cargo hither and yon as an easy excuse to get out on the virtual road. Its America is only a couple of states at the moment and more an impression of the landscape than an actual representation of the cities and towns it covers, but when the lighting is right and the road is being kind, it’s a great place to travel through. American Truck Simulator puts you behind the wheel of the biggest beasts of the road and sets you free to explore in your own way, taking in the scenery while keeping an eye on traffic, and just maybe, even learning to back 18 wheels of pure trucking muscle into its target drop-off point. If you’re going to live a driving fantasy, after all, you might as well fantasize big.

A great start, but American Truck Simulator will really begin to take shape when more states and trucks are added.

Ultimately, I left American Truck Simulator thankful that it was more of the same. Hop in a truck, drive where I'm told to drive and see some sights whiz past. As someone who sunk countless hours into Euro Truck Simulator 2, a fresh coat of paint, an unfamiliar set of sights and the challenge of driving on the wrong opposite side of the road left me confident that I'll be sinking just as many hours into American Truck Simulator. It's not all of America right now, but it's an exciting start.

Många i min sociala krets säger att köra lastbil kan likställas med meditation och jag är beredd att hålla med. Det är skönt att bara ge sig iväg ett par timmar i sin egna lastbil, tanka upp den med massvis av diesel, lasta på lite frakt på släpet och bara låta tankarna flyta iväg. Visst är det inte det mest spännande spelet i världen, men likväl behöver det inte vara mer än såhär. Skillnaderna mellan Euro Truck Simulator 2 och det här är inte särskilt stora, men vad gör det när konceptet redan var och är så pass slipat. Snart kommer fler stater vilket är spännande och visst det kommer säkert bli dyrt att köpa allt vilket drar ner betyget i slutändan. Men överlag så är American Truck Simulator ett välutvecklat spel som kommer puttra i bakgrunden för mig under en lång tid. Så ge dig av, veva ner rutan och njut, för den här resan har bara börjat.

Der American Truck Simulator ist ein Bananenprodukt - es reift beim Kunden. Modder machen ihn in den kommenden Monaten zu dem, was der Euro Truck Simulator 2 ist: ein Umfangsmonster, hinter dem sich selbst Kollege Schwerdtel nach 200 verputzten Leberkässemmeln verstecken könnte. Spaß bringt das Spiel aber schon jetzt, ich finde es unglaublich chillig, wie es neudeutsch heißt, fast besser als autogenes Training oder Angeln. Jedenfalls bis zu dem Zeitpunkt, wo mir wieder die Schädeldecke hochgeht und Rauch aus meinen Ohren strömt. Sei es, weil die Polizei teure Passfotos von mir geknipst hat. Sei es, weil sich ein Auto zu weit in die ökologische Nische meines Babys vorwagt und ihm wehtut. Oder wenn ich beim Rangieren agiere wie ein Elefant im Schuhkarton. Auf der einen Seite liefert der American Truck Simulator mir also Entspannung, auf der anderen Seite heftige Emotionen, kurz: Er ist bewegend. Oh Gott, habe ich einen Lkw gerade als mein Baby bezeichnet?

While not much has changed from ETS 2 to American Truck Simulator, the few improvements are helpful. There isn’t enough here that really changed though from game to game. If you enjoyed the last one, this is a lot more of the same, right down to the level up screen, and hiring drivers menu. It’s not a bad game at all, but it essentially more of an expansion rather than a new game. Still, if this type of game interests you at all, it is definitely worth a pick up.

Grając w American Truck Simulator nie sposób odnieść wrażenia, że to zaledwie dodatek do poprzedniej gry. Piękna, ale niezbyt duża mapa, dwie ciężarówki do wyboru na start i praktycznie niezmieniona mechanika rozgrywki. Jeżeli to jednak nasze pierwsze zetknięcie z serią, rozpoczęcie przygody będzie niezwykle satysfakcjonujące.

Ultimately, I still love me some Truck Simulator, and I can’t deny the concept itself has aged quite well. In an industry where “Simulator” has lost all meaning, becoming the trading word of those who peddle cynical joke games via Steam Greenlight, it’s refreshing to see SCS remind us that, once upon a time, a simulation game actually meant something, and had the unique power to make mundanity thrilling – even if the game itself isn’t fundamentally new.

Тем не менее, ATS стоит купить… года через два, большим комплектом со всеми возможными дополнениями и обязательно с внушительной скидкой (к тому же в обе игры совсем скоро добавят поддержку Steam Workshop, и приличных модификаций будет навалом). А сейчас она обрадует только самых преданных фанатов чешской студии.
