The graphics of each area is designed in such a way that it reflects its natural environment. The intricate details add to the realism of travelling on these routes.

The only way they can do this is by choosing a longer route to their destination. The players can pick their job offer from the menu. They can do this while keeping in view their previous accomplished deliveries and their number of new trucks. The vehicles are inspired from real life trucks. The players, however, cannot own the trucks but merely use them.

The game features more than 25 different rigs and various types of loads whose number exceeds 30. Players have to deliver the packages in time. The player has to keep an eye on the gas level of the truck. If the package is delivered intact, the player earns points. These points help one unlock more missions and gradually more map locations. The player can also earn more trucks as he levels up. The missions vary in terms of difficulty and take different amounts of time to complete. Each mission provides the player with a new truck which has to be handled differently. The physics of the game is not completely true to that in real life because the turning radius of the vehicles is very poor.
18 Wheels of Steel: Extreme Trucker manages to give on an insight to a trucker’s life and the game also showcased the challenges and hurdles that the driver has to come across while delivering the cargo. The deadlines and the rough terrain also make the driving near to impossible. With amazing graphics, good gameplay and thrilling tracks, the game should really be called 18 wheels of fun!
