'King Of Route 66' (PS2) - Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 17, 2003 @ 9:56 p.m. PST

Challenging gamers to "haul ass" across the U.S. in their own nitro-powered 18-wheeler, "The King of Route 66" is the ultimate white-knuckled road trip from Illinois to California. Players must square off against the evil Tornado Corporation and their army of goons on a quest to become the King of the Road and win the hearts of the seductive Queens of Route 66. Today we have a few new screens, some character art and a wallpaper...

Loaded with grizzly outlaw truckers, fully-customizable vehicles and dozens of mini-games, "The King of Route 66" features a variety of mission-based gameplay styles, more than 40 colorful characters and massive, living levels complete with multiple ways to complete each objective.

"I've never taken a caffeine-fueled, demolition derby-style road trip across the U.S. in an 18-wheeler to win the hearts of eight beautiful women, but if I had, I bet it would be just like 'The King of Route 66,' said Mike Fischer, vice president, SEGA of America, Inc. "An over-the-top arcade-style romp through America's Heartland, 'The King of Route 66' delivers cathartic thrills and high-octane action."
