This review from one of the leading Russian 3D gaming software and hardware sites focuses on a player’s freedom in the game, where one can travel anywhere in thoroughly modeled California from the start. Game world is in general 10õ compressed compared to real life state, but different factors were used for highways, city streets and other road types to make it feel ‘right’. While trucks are restricted to certain roads and you can’t drive everywhere, most cities have distinctive look and feel, which helps the immersion. There are fourteen drivable trucks in the game (players start with a Freightliner Argosy) and a steering wheel controller is recommended to utilize their capabilities fully. They are also customizable – various truck components are simulated along with their condition.
In RignRoll players can concentrate on whatever appeals them more – developing their company like in a tycoon type game, completing main and side quests or just driving around looking at scenery (it’s really beautiful sometimes, in spite of dated graphics). Economical (there is also main story) victory requires dominating freight traffic market in California.
Bottom line: a game for people who like a car travel and find it romantic.
