Realistic forklifting physics, great graphics, solid controls
Lacks structure, no progression
Somewhere out there, some kind of professional forklifting sport exists. Until I find out where, Extreme Forklifting 2 for Android is going to be the closes thing I’ll be able to get to the sport. This is basically a crazy and over-the-top forklifting game. The objective? Pick pallets up and put them back down!
Fortunately, the game doesn’t beat around the bush when it comes to tell you how to play. It gives you a brief couple of frames with some very basic instructions and then lets you get right to it. Just to be thorough, there are a handful of things you need to keep track of when it comes to controls. You’ve got a steering wheel, a gas and brake pedal, a reverse lever and then a forklift lever.
You’ll start the game in some random position and find your way to a pallet. Once you find it, you’ll need to position yourself in a way to pick the pallet up. Pretty exciting stuff, huh? The game’s controls are really solid, but I found the gameplay to be a bit questionable at best. Not because it’s not good. I mean, for what it’s trying to go for, it hits the nail on the head. And it is pretty fun to wrangle your first couple of pallets. But after a while, I began to realize all I was doing was picking pallets up. Nothing special about it.
Extreme Forklifting 2 is probably one of the best forklifting games out there, but that’s also because the only other game like it is Extreme Forklifting 1. As a game, there just isn’t much substance to keep me playing for any considerable length of time.
