The 18 Wheels of Steel
series is a pretty extensive set of truck games which don't differ all that much but which generally provide some solid entertainment for trucking fans. Long Haul is another entry in the franchise which doesn't really add much to the formula, so unless you're a diehard fan who laps up every game the company throws out, you can probably skip this. As usual, you start out with just a single truck and it's your overall goal to build up a fleet of steel behemoths and create your own trucking company. The general principles remain the same too, and you'll have to complete a number of delivery jobs to earn the cash to start buying new trucks and hire other drivers. You'll have to make sure you get the goods where they need to be on time and in good condition otherwise your customers won't be happy but do the job well, and the money will come rolling in. There are around 45 different goods which need transporting, while there are several major cities to visit on your journeys, and you're going to have to watch out for other traffic and the police as your ride around. Long Haul really doesn't add much to the formula with the usual mix of slow paced driving and delivering goods firmly adhered to here. It's not the most exciting thing either, especially if you're more used to faster-paced driving games, so many people will find this a little dull. However, if you are a fan then this offers just what you want and you're sure to enjoy this. Just don't expect anything radically new.
