* CoversAlwaysLie: A truck with flames[[note]] no vehicles move anywhere approaching this fast when traveling ''forwards''[[/note]] spouting from it ramming[[note]]no collision detection[[/note]] a police car[[note]]no police[[/note]] with the tagline "18 Wheels[[note]]not all trucks have loads and are 18 wheelers[[/note]] Of Thunder[[note]]no SFX[[/note]]." Even the concept of this game as carrying cargo is debatable, as all vehicles end where they start. [[http://mortarandpistol.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/919220_49160_back.jpg The back of the box]] has advertising so blatantly false you'd almost think [[VeryFalseAdvertising it was a satire.]] It mentions "features" such as "three levels of difficulty" and avoiding police, neither of which are in the game. The screenshots are also obvious mockups if you have seen any actual pictures of the game. The most laughable thing, however, has to be its mention of the AI that will supposedly challenge the most experienced driver (hint: read the rest of the page). About the only thing it actually gets right is the environments it lists off, and even that's making an exception for the track that will always cause the game to crash when it's selected.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Countless examples, but most notably what happens when you throw your rig into reverse. Your truck will gradually accelerate faster and faster as you hold the reverse button - ''way'' beyond the 60 miles per hour limit of going forward. After ''almost an hour'' of holding that button down, you will eventually reach the golden speed of '''12.3 undecillion''' (1.23E37) miles per hour. To put this in perspective, the speed of light in a vacuum is only 671 million miles per hour. If you were travelling at the top speed a truck in the game can reverse, you could cross the entire known universe in under 160 picoseconds (and [[ApocalypseHow destroy it]] [[EarthShatteringKaboom as well]]). And yet, your truck will ''stop on a dime'' if you lift your finger off the reverse button at any point in your dimension-killing faster-than-light backwards trucking adventure.

* AwesomeButImpractical: If you accelerate backwards to 12.3 undecillion[[note]]that's a one followed by 36 zeros[[/note]] miles per hour, all checkpoints light up and you automatically win. But considering it takes almost an hour of continuously holding the reverse button to reach that speed, coupled with the fact that it's impossible to lose anyway...

Added DiffLines:

** Mind you, so's the "Over the road" part, considering the game's rather cavalier attitude towards the road's tangibility at times.
