So, the storys the same, but about those tweaks and new features theres a lot of em, so strap yourself in and well tell you what they are. Players are now rewarded for pulling crash combos, with more cash being awarded for successfully wiping out multiple vehicles. The more cars the player hits consecutively, the more money they make. If a car passes which is not hit, then the player starts again. New arcade-style voiceovers have been added to the on-road game footage to announce the player's progress. If players hit a six car combo, theyll hear a disembodied voice tell them they are a Bad Mother Trucker and will be rewarded with a bonus car, the destruction of which will repair damage or refuel. This gives players further incentive to pull off combos and rewards them with valuable pick-ups. Previously, players could only refuel or repair their truck while stopping off in one of the cities, but they may now collect power-ups/pick-ups en route.
The Parking Challenge has been improved for the PC version, making it easier to perform, with the objectives being more obvious to the player. It is now much more intuitive and is based on getting into the parking space as quickly as possible with the money counting down as time ticks away.
Players are also required to toggle their truck into high gear when accelerating. In the PS2 and Xbox versions, its not always plain that you are required to change gear, so the appropriate message has been modified to make it more obvious.
Just think all those improvements, plus the core tale of racing against time to deliver your payload while fighting off the unwanted attentions of your siblings, gangs of unpleasant bikers and over-zealous cops its a hoot, and a rootin tootin way to get your kicks on Route 666!
