Big Mutha Truckers 2: Truck Me Harder. Take a good look at that title, and ponder it for a while. Breathe in its intentionally unsubtle word play (which you'll undoubtedly see replicated in this review, natch). Absorb its facetious humour in the subtitle. Then wonder just how well the racing-cum-trade original did to actually warrant a follow-up (just over 10,000 in the UK, nigh on a million in the States, fact fiends...). Yes, the first game was mildly diverting fun, but sadly not worth anything more than the six out of ten rating we blessed on it with at the time. Then again, it wasn't really for us, was it?
However, clearly both Empire and developer Eutechnyx saw the money and potential to keep on Truckin', because here we are, staring at the sequel like a doe-eyed deer in headlights, waiting to be hit by a jack-knifing disaster of a game. Thankfully, things arenít that bad. Okay, Big Mutha Truckers 2 was unlikely to be a smooth ride, but it isn't festering road-kill either.
