18 Wheels of Steel: Pedal to the Metal In this installment of the series, you will transport cargo across America, Mexico and Canada with your rig. There are over 45 types of cargo and 35 different rigs to choose from.

You start the game as an employee. You need to drive the routes and carry the cargoes that your boss assigns to you. If you are able to earn $100,000, you will get the opportunity to advance to Owner Operator.

As an Owner Operator, you will have the ability to upgrade your rig the way you want, or even buy a new one. You will also be able to choose your routes and your cargoes. This will give you the freedom to go where you want and see the sights while bringing in the big bucks.

Ready to take it one step further? Become the Company Boss and you will run your company... into the ground, or into the money. This is similar to Owner Operator, but you will be focusing on your company rather than driving.

Avoid the law and avoid damaging your goods... either one will reduce your money quickly. Drive through various weather conditions as well as night and day. Drive on highways, city streets, and dirt roads. Watch out for deer, construction, wrecks, and more... So much to do and you have to do it within the time frame, or you'll lose money (unless you turn that option off). [source:mobygames]
