Even if you're not the type to bleat out the 1975 hit "Convoy" over a CB radio, you'll probably still get the sweats thinking about racing with 20 tons of cargo pushing your rig. In Eighteen Wheeler: American Pro Trucker, you'll choose between four 18-wheel trucks, and then ride against rival truckers and the clock as you try to deliver your payload intact and on time. The game offers 20 stages from New York to San Francisco, as well as four play modes: Arcade, Parking Challenge, Score Attack, and Versus. Eighteen Wheeler is compatible with separately sold steering-wheel controllers.

Thank you for reading this rview.
"18 Wheeler" is one of those games that doesn't have much to it. It consists of three different modes: Arcade, Score Attack, and Parking.
ARCADE: This is the main part of the game. You have four different truckers to choose from and you race on four different stretches of road with them. When you complete all four stretches of the road, then you have won the game. You can unlock only one bonus trucker and there are no new stretches of road to unlock. You just have to keep doing the same ones over and over again. Boring.
SCORE ATTACK: Completely pointless mode in which you pick a trucker and drive three laps around four (of course) different areas. The point? To try and smash into bonus cars and earn points. That's it. Yup...boring.
PARKING: The only truly challenging mode of the game. There are a total of six (!!) parking challenges. You steer your truck around different obstacles and attempt to park it inside a designated area within the given time limit. The last few levels are quite difficult. Your enjoyment of this mode will certainly depend on how enjoyable you think parking a truck in a video game is.
Overall, "18 Wheeler" is a big disappointment. Not surprisingly, since this game was derived from an arcade game, the graphics are extremely mediocre. The gameplay has its fun moments but any experienced game player will be able to beat the racing levels very quickly. It doesn't have any substantial replay value so once you beat the game it will probably just sit around collecting dust.
My recommendation? Rent it if you are a truck fanatic. Otherwise, steer clear of this one and don't buy it.
