Review:

Virtual Tours are like a simulation that makes you feel like you are somewhere you are not. Virtual tours are an amazing feature to technology that lets you explore a building or city. There are some bad things about it though, its sometimes lags badly, it is sometimes 2D and it can be fake meaning that its not really what the place looks like. Sometimes it is a very accurate tour and it can be in 3D which gives you a very good idea of what the building or city looks like.

One of the best virtual tours I have been on is the Monster MIlk Truck, it lets you drive around the world in a milk truck and do any tricks and other stuff that you want.

Although its a little bit glitchy and its sometimes 2D depending of whether you have good internet connection or not, it is a great game and it fills spare time with a little fun. If you want to play the Monster Milk Truck game go to this link but beware you need the google earth plug-in to play this game.
