Your life is turned upside down as you return to Texas, only to get involved with a local gang. Now you must work your way out by driving for them. It can be dirty work sometimes, but your life depends on it!

keep it up

Great game potential here. As others have said the close view doesnt really favor some of the missions. Should not have a constant distance from the truck. It should be changing with the speed of the truck. Farther away as your speed increases, and closer to home as you slow down. I love the idea of being a murdering trucker though lol.

Very good

Shoot the cameras out before shooting Jim.

The steering can be worked on but I cannot complain too much about that. The graphics are good and the story kept me playing.

was ok

Steering needs a lot of work, maybe zoom the camera out a little bit. Visuals were fine.

And I couldnt figure out how to kill Jim without getting caught =/

Nice little game, but not without annoyances

A lot of good things here, that a large number of birds eye racing games leave out. I liked the clarity of the missions (with one or two exceptions), and it was generally fun to play. The graphics were pleasing, and excelled particularly in the night-time with the headlights.

But there were one of things letting it down. Chiefly, more often than not if I get hit by a car whilst fleeing, I'm dead. I'll be stuck in a long, slow, inevitable death as I use the few seconds of immunity after a hit to move a few crawling inches, before the offending car, which also has barely moved, will hit me again purely because it is overlapping with me. Another flaw, although admittedly a lesser one, was that trawling from the start of a failed mission, or indeed, the start of various long, uneventful missions, could be quite tiresome.

But there's no doubt it is a fair game, warts and all, so I'll be giving it an appropriately high score.

Surprisingly good fun

I have to say, this is actually a very different idea for a game. It was well executed, and I enjoyed it a lot. It's definitely an 8/10 from me. I would have given it a full 10, but there are two flaws that I found.

As someone else said, the camera is slightly too close. This makes it difficult to prepare for oncoming obstacles, and it can be annoying to fail a level due to the fact you weren't able to see an enemy.

The other complaint I have is with the truck itself. It is very difficult to connect the truck to the trailer, and I often found myself getting damage, when the truck really should have been connecting with the trailer.

Otherwise, this is a pretty cool game. I enjoyed playing it, and it's something I'd definitely play again. The concept for it was very different, and it's something I liked a lot.
