Sega’s massively original arcade game 18 Wheeler has made the console leap onto the PlayStation 2. As the name suggests, this a game that features the massive lorries that make the long haul from one end of America to the other.

You are in the driving seat in one of the craziest races you are ever likely to compete in. In 18 Wheeler, you are racing your rival from New York to Key West (Florida) passing through Dallas, Las Vegas and finally ending up in San Francisco. That’s over 5,000 miles of truck racing though some of the most stunning scenery that the States has to offer.

Racing trucks definitely has its advantages. When you’re in a 10 ton beast, driving along at speeds of over 100mph, other drivers get out of your way. If they don’t, you can give them a friendly little nudge to show them who’s boss. Occasionally there are bonus vans that if you run into, reward you with 5 seconds of bonus time.

Not only are you racing against your rival while avoiding the rest of the traffic, but you also have the clock to contend with. The time limit is strict and you have to keep your foot down if you are going to make that checkpoint.
