If you are fond of open road driving games then you should get Rigs of Rods as it's one of the best free simulators available on the market today. Consider the following features when choosing your next vehicle: speed, gas mileage, handling, graphics, damage and so forth. All taken together you should definitely give Rigs of Rods some serious thought when searching for realistic open road games in terms of vehicles, terrain and environment; it's completely free, it's an easy to use, quick to load and has many customizable options which can improve the overall gameplay. The graphics and damage models are especially impressive and believable.
The game is available in Windows only and is designed for both casual gamers and hardcore simulation fans. This is not your Grand Theft Auto or Need for Speed, but it does have its own set of challenges. For example, you will be required to drive through cities and other such places whilst avoiding pedestrians and crashes. Your challenge is not just about getting to the end of the level, but you must also avoid running out of lives - one mistake and your character will be 'dropped off' and you'll start the level from square one.

Rigs of Rods is relatively small in size (which is a good thing, considering the quality of the graphics and sounds) but packs a huge amount of content. There are over 45 different kinds of Rigs of Rods, which you can download for free, as well as many additional in-game challenges and events to take part in. This huge amount of content is mostly made up of two things though - the free Rigs of Rods soft modders and the in-built content found in the game's Windows version. Due to the fact that the game uses Open Source Engine, there is no chance of damaging any Windows PC, and therefore this app is extremely safe to use.
