''Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing'' is a "brake jammin', CB talkin', convoy rollin'" action "game" for the PC, "developed" by Stellar Stone and released in 2003. The player controls one of four semi-trailer trucks on one of four (plus one, as another level was added in an update) tracks, wherein the objective is to drive through the checkpoints and get to the finish line.

[[MetaphoricallyTrue Features never-before-seen freedom]], as the trucks can [[ObviousBeta go up cliffs, through buildings, and into an endless void.]] [[BlatantLies The AI is infamously brutal and unrelenting, so a challenge is guaranteed.]]

See also ''VideoGame/EuroTruckSimulator'', which takes the basic premise of a BigBadassRig driving game and goes in another, less hilariously broken but just as enjoyable ([[FunForSome for a select few anyways]]) direction.

!!This game provides examples of:
* AWinnerIsYou: The three-handled "YOU'RE WINNER !" trophy has become [[MemeticMutation more emblematic of the game than anything else]].
* ArtificialStupidity: Averted, as there is ''no AI at all''. If you download the patch, the opponent rig will move... and then stop short of the finish line because ''there is no code for what happens when you lose a race''. If anyone but the player happened to win, [[ObviousBeta the game]] [[NonstandardGameOver would crash]].
** There is, however, a great amount of AI stupidity in the ''coding''. This game is an utter memory vampire - if you pull up Task Manager, you'll see that the game uses ''50%'' of available memory. Which raises the question, ''for what?''
* BrokeTheRatingScale
** [=GameSpot=] reviewer Alex Navarro kept his rating within bounds. He commented that the only reason the game received a 1.0 out of 10 (the lowest score ever given by [=GameSpot=]) was because they couldn't go any lower. His [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR3a0gixfwI video review]] grants the NoJustNoReaction rating as well.
--->"We don't hand out zeroes, but maybe we should have for BigRigsOverTheRoadRacing"
** Net Jack, on the other hand, ''did'' go out of bounds. It apparently rewrote its code so it could award the game a zero.
** ''Series/XPlay'' just plain refused to rate the game. They didn't have a zero, and they were unwilling to give this game anything higher. As such it never received an actual review, but it ''was'' spotlighted in a segment on games that would have gotten a zero if allowed.
** WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd is reduced to {{corpsing}} at the most egregious flaws, particularly at the "YOU'RE WINNER!" screen. He called it the most unplayable game he's ever reviewed (which is really saying something.)
--->"'YOU'RE WINNER' is the kind of stuff that [[SoBadItsGood turns horrible games into legends]]. It's the cherry on top of the diarrhea shake."
** A common problem that reviewers who tried to review ''Big Rigs'' have had is that, to even review it under normal constraints, one must acknowledge that it is in fact a ''game''. ''Big Rigs'' commits so many egregious violations of what should be allowable in ''any'' game (such as driving through what should be solid objects or being absolutely impossible to lose) that it actually becomes difficult to categorize as a game more than it is a very incomplete and work-in-progress game engine with a few assets (that just barely prevent it from being a pixel traveling around a three-dimensional wireframe landscape) that somehow ended up on store shelves (and as such there is no metric that can sufficiently describe it).
* CoversAlwaysLie: Let's count the ones that are just on the ''front!'' 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." 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]] is ''even worse'', with advertising so blatantly false you'd almost think [[VeryFalseAdvertising it was a satire.]] About the only thing it actually gets right is the environments it lists off. It mentions "features" such as "three levels of difficulty" and avoiding police, neither of which are in the game. The screenshots are also incredibly 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).
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Well, you ARE a big rig, racing over the road. The back of the box, [[BlatantLies on the other hand...]]
* FasterThanLightTravel: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVREUuuNIgg What you eventually achieve]] if you continuously accelerate in reverse. And when you release the reverse key, you stop on a dime.
* ForegoneVictory: You absolutely ''can't lose'', and even if you download the patch to make the opponent rig move it still stops short of the finish line. Even if it ''did'' somehow cross it, it still wouldn't win because '''there is no programmed failure state!''' Basically, it is literally impossible for any race to end in the player not winning.
** It gets even better! Sometimes, the game's code has trouble distinguishing between starting and finishing, so you might ''win the race the moment you begin''.
** On the other hand, if you're playing Big Rigs Racing, you've kinda already lost ''before'' the race began...
* GameBreakingBug: It would be easier to count which things work properly than things that don't.
* GravityBarrier: Averted, as ''gravity doesn't work''.
* InsurmountableWaistHeightFence: Non-existent. There are ''no'' walls at all. To quote a fellow on Website/YouTube describing it:
-->"You don't drive into things. You drive through them. And by "things", I mean anything and everything."
** The ''only'' thing in the game that you don't drive through is the ''ground''. Bridges do not count as ground.
** They certainly weren't kidding when they titled it ''Over the Road Racing''.
** You can easily surmount the one wall you can't drive through, MOUNTAINS. Without the slightest change in your speed.
* InvisibleWall: Also non-existent. You can pretty much just drive off the edge of the world and ''stay there''.
* LongSongShortScene: The game actually -does- contain some surprisingly catchy music... if it ''does'' play.
* LudicrousSpeed: Just how fast can your truck go in reverse? It depends entirely on how long you're willing to keep your finger on the Down Arrow or how long the game can run without crashing.
* TheMockbuster: The game has "18 Wheels of Thunder" on the bottom of its box. This could be seen as an attempt to fool people into thinking that it's an entry in the "18 Wheels of Steel" franchise due to how similar the two titles are, which seems weird since 18 Wheels of Steel is a simulation franchise (and Big Rigs would have been much more arcadey if it were finished).
* [[ObviousBeta Obvious Pre-Alpha]]: And a buggy one at that. For the sake of perspective: programming-wise, this... "game"... probably represents ''less than a day's'' work for an experienced game developer.
** In a desperate further attempt to pass it off as a real game, they actually released a patch. It fixed the opponent trucks' immobility and a broken map... and nothing else. And the opponent trucks now stop before they reach the finish line. And the "fixed" map only turned it into a mirror of the first map.
** Resources from this game were used in a better, non-truck racing game, but it unsurprisingly sucked too.
* {{Unwinnable}}: Inverted. It's impossible to lose in this game. See ArtificialStupidity and ForegoneVictory above.
* ZeroEffortBoss: Oh goodness, '''YES.''' It gets even better with an occasional bug that causes the game to declare you winner ''as soon as the race starts.''
