The Euro Truck Simulator series is a popular choice in the simulation genre. The games are available for PC via Steam and the first in the series, "Euro Truck Simulator," has very positive Steam user reviews. There are also competing games, such as "18 Wheels of Steel: American Long Haul" and "UK Truck Simulator." Other semi truck games include the relatively low-end Flash and Web titles on WheelGamer.com. Racing titles, such as the comedy-focused "Big Mutha Truckers," are also available.
Euro Truck Simulator games focus on long-haul truck travel in Europe. Players drive semi trucks between major cities and deliver goods. The developers claim to provide an authentic experience, with attention paid to rules of the road and game models based on real trucks. A trial version of "Euro Truck Simulator 2" is available at EuroTruckSimulator2.com.
Games in the 18 Wheels of Steel series often involve building a business, including bidding for jobs and growing a fleet of trucks. The most recent "Extreme Trucker" titles added a new element of excitement with extreme environments, such as Yungas Road and the Australian Outback.
The Big Mutha Truckers series is comedy-driven and often involves the player fleeing from the authorities and ignoring the rules of the road. The graphics are dated, because the titles are over 10 years old. Both games received mixed to poor reviews.
