Simply one of the greatest digital experiences, nay, experiences PERIOD that I have ever experienced. Graphics jump out at you from the screen and hold your eyeballs in their grip. You'll dive out of your chair in response to your Rig nearly crashing into a tree or building, it's so realistic! Of course, the game gives you the avant-garde experience of passing THROUGH said obstacles. The musical score is a tremendously wonderful rendition of John Cage's "4:33", and brings tears to the eyes. The physics are amazing! You can do things you would never dream of being able to do, such as travelling at the speed of light, then instantly stopping with the touch of a button. Stellar Stone has crafted this vision for us, to show us what a perfect world would be. I can only hope that one day, mankind will find a way to make Stellar's visions work in Real Life. Play the game, and you'll be happy. I know I was!
Not only is it almost completely broken and blatantly unfinished in nearly every way, but even if it weren't, there's so little of an actual game to be found here that it would still be terrible. Big Rigs is a game so astoundingly bad that it manages to transcend nearly every boundary put forth by some of gaming's absolute worst of the worst and easily makes it into that dubiously extraordinary category of being one of the most atrocious games ever published.
— GameSpot reviewer Alex Navarro, written review
"This game officially received the lowest score in the history of Gamespot: a 1.0. And by lowest, I mean it can't go any lower. We don't hand out zeroes, but maybe we should have for Big Rigs Over The Road Racing."
— Alex Navarro, Frightfully Bad Games
"I've seen better gameplay from a vending machine."

"Why go on the bridge, when you can go through the bridge?"
"Big motherfucking Rigs! Driving around with fucking trucks!"
— A "commercial" for the game by James Rolfe
You use the arrow keys to move, and with it you can show off just how incredible your Big Rig is. Not only is the truck not affected by any sort of terrain, no matter how steep, it can also pass through fucking objects! Obstacles? Not a problem! Just watch as your truck pass[es] through everything like an unwanted kidney stone. Bridges?! Pbbbbbth, fuck that! We're gonna go under that bitch and show [off] just how badass your truck is! Shit, why stop at bridges, who needs the map?! Your truck is also the pinnacle of interdimensional travel! Just keep going in one direction and you'll eventually travel out of the game's boundar[ies], an endless void of nothingness that Exdeath himself will call PARADISE!
