Well after installing about 6 games that didn't even play or froze during load this one actually pulled through. The graphics are better than I expected them to be, but I advise against going to Mexico because you'll get fined before you even reach the Border Crossing and again on the way back.
As another person said, some of the jobs are very long and will take a few hours to get there but that is the name of the game. And learn how to park double trailers as another said. Double egg trailers are the ones that pay the most 147k+ per load but be prepared for the 'Long Haul'.
Always save, save and save some more! The game has not crashed yet but it is always a good idea to save whenever you can!
Talking on the CB does not do anything but distract you. But if you do want to talk you may want to learn the numbers. If you find traffic turning into you from the lanes use your flashers (F) and it will keep those cars behind you. It is also nice to 'advance time' when you find yourself in a traffic jam. If you like to see the traffic zoom by as you are doing 80 without even letting up, use the shoulder....Feel like offroading? Do so without penalty....just don't damage your trailer!
I give this game 9/10 because of the touchiness of the police. Otherwise, if you like these types of games, this is one you will enjoy for hours and will actually work!

I like this game just because it lets you pass a huge amount of time, like if your at a DMV or what have you, but other than that, the speed limit for all the trucks you drive is 45-50... while other trucks and cars go 70-80 mph.. that is where I get ticked off... I don't want to spend 5 days driving across the country in game.. also, all traffic lights in every city go red at the same time!! there is no way to get out of the city in a timely manner. Also, cops are way over the top. I thought GTA 4 cops were hard a$$eS, nope.. Another thing is the boring Hamm radio talk, its all the same voices over and over again, and my driver always looks stoned. I decided Not to do missions, just free drive. Who wants endless penalties and to worry about red lights?? going 40 mph is tiresome.. especially from NYC to LA.. There are a few points in the mountains I can go 65 mph, but that doesn't last.. I hope if there are any newer games I hope they do DX11 and make the trucks go 80 MPH..
