Thought I'd share this game review. The game ... Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing, while I haven't had the privileged of playing this game, I love the review:
Bad games are released all the time, and some are worse than others. This is nothing new. However, it really takes a special kind of awful to be considered one of the worst games ever made. So when this special kind of awful makes an appearance, it's truly something to behold. Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing is one of those rare pieces of work. Not only is it almost completely broken and blatantly unfinished in nearly every way, but even if it weren't, there's so little of an actual game to be found here that it would still be terrible. Big Rigs is a game so astoundingly bad that it manages to transcend nearly every boundary put forth by some of gaming's absolute worst of the worst and easily makes it into that dubiously extraordinary category of being one of the most atrocious games ever published.
Ohh..this game. I've tried it before. Try driving across the bridge. You'll see your truck get sucked under the bridge, and appear again when it reaches the other end of the bridge. Also, try reversing while pressing left or right. The speed of the truck will just keep increasing, and then when you release the keys, the truck will stop immediately. No inertia or momentum or whatever you call it. This game sucks.
This is the most important game ever made. It raises questions that few others do, such as "aren't we all just racing against ourselves anyway?" and "what would the world be like without police?" and "Wouldn't it be wonderful to not have the laws of physics?" It also takes on very important metaphysical questions with a clarity reminiscent of Descartes: What can I actually know about the world around me? Can I really trust what my eyes are seeing?
For example the use of bridges in the game; are they really there or are they an illusion? If I choose one of the five available trucks will it work or is it only the illusion of a truck? There is so much hidden depth to this game that many, many reviewers are totally missing when they blindly criticize its meager graphics, dysfunctional AI, and total lack of audio. These are merely surface issues. The heart and soul of the game is the valuable critique it offers of reality.
If you want to expand your mind and wisdom, buy this game. It will broaden your horizons and teach you to view the world in profound new ways.
