Polygon rates American Truck Simulator 8/10

Listen, I love trucks probably more than most people do. In fact, there was a time in my life where all I wanted to be was a truck driver. But c'mon. Is this game, American Truck Simulator, really worth 8/10? I'm not saying it isn't. I'm just wondering if I should spend $20 on this game and live my life's dream of driving a truck around. Yeah, there are "jobs" I have to do in the game -- namely deliver something on time -- which seems completely boring. But there's also free-roaming which means all I get to do is drive around aimlessly and all I'd really have to worry about is crashing, refueling, and not killing myself in the truck. Maybe that is worth 8/10? I'm not sure. Maybe? Am I going to be out $20 by the end of the day...?
