Official description of the game

You are invited to try yourself in the role of a Russian driver who arrives in California in search of success in the field of long-distance transportation. Ahead of you are large and small cities, hot deserts and flowering valleys, the Pacific coast and the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains, and most importantly, miles and miles of American highways. "Truckers 3: Conquest of America" ​​is a continuation of the famous game series. However, this time the game world was not invented by the developers, but copied from the real world.

Review: Playability

If you are a fan of a hefty steering wheel and an endless string of game roads, then this game is just for you. There is something unusually attractive about it that can find both its supporters and opponents.

Truckers 3 is not an arcade race, although the features of chases appear more than once in it, so the controls are appropriate. It will be very difficult to drive with the wind, especially considering the multi-ton load on the shoulders of the tractor. The game has some kind of plot, but still, so you will find small game videos made from game graphics. This is not to say that they are so modern, but they introduce some dilution into the routine life of a “truck driver.”

rnr_2009-12-26_14-25-33-11

In general, the plot is monotonous to the point of disgrace, only occasionally rare chases allow you to disperse the despondency. But again, terrible controls kill all the fun in the bud. Game bots sometimes behave so stupidly that it really hurts the eyes.

We invite you to check out the first 10 minutes of the gameplay video along with the intro. We hope it will help you get an idea about this project.

Again, we can emphasize that Truckers 3: Conquest of America is only for fans of this series. They will probably be able to really enjoy this game.

Review: Game Graphics

The game cannot boast of anything other than good car detailing. The surroundings are very wooden, even the chain-link fencing can feel like a concrete slab to your tractor. And at the slightest accident, your truck falls apart almost before your eyes.

The dynamic change of time of day only benefited the game, slightly raising its graphical authority in our eyes. Unfortunately, the weather conditions were not so great. It is not clear why it can rain even in cloudless weather. The environment is bright and rich and allows you to cover up its low-level content. In general, the control prevents your eyes from being distracted by anything other than the road and your gaze remains focused only on it.

rnr_2009-12-26_17-08-08-74

Another game characters are so clumsy that there are simply no words. The graphics didn’t come out today, that’s for sure, but they have the appetites of tomorrow, which we’ll look at in the next section.

Review: Resource-intensive game

To play Truckers 3: Conquest of America, you will need a dual-core Core 2 Duo 3 GHz processor and 2 gigabytes of RAM.. The game is extremely unoptimized - the load is distributed only between two cores, and even then it does not load them 100%. Moreover, it is very clearly visible that performance is limited by the central processor; owners of any video cards will have a hard time.

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality by the Fraps program in the most resource-intensive part of the game.

rnr_2009-12-26_17-12-50-13

We tested video cards from the lower price segment at a resolution of 1024x768, video cards from the middle price range were tested at a resolution of 1280x1024, and video cards from the upper price range were tested at a resolution of 1680x1050.

Testing at maximum Low End quality settings at 1024x768 resolution

Testing at maximum quality settings Midle End at 1280x1024 resolution

1280

Testing at maximum High End quality settings at 1680x1050 resolution

1680

It is clear that the game is terribly unoptimized. Everything depends on the central processor - the game doesn’t even try to use all the CPUs it has, leaving the lion’s share of them inactive. So we can only wait for the release of a patch that will fix this terrible problem.

Conclusion:Truckers 3: Conquest of America will find its supporters among fans, but the quality of optimization is appalling.
