First of all this game is incredibly relaxing. Pick the right radio station or play your own playlists and just drive around - you will start feeling better about yourself in no time. As a simulator you'd expect difficult controls, stressful need for accuracy and high price for mistakes - but its not there. Its not arcadish in common sense either though - it balances in between. Kinda hard to explain, but if you start playing you'll feel it immediately. The game rewards you with feeling of accomplishment as much as any hard simulator does. But at the same time it will punish you for mistakes as little as arcades do, so you wouldn't get demoralised as much. And yet it feels realistic. All that should be enough to at least check the game out but there is much much more. Active developers, lots of free stuff comes with patches, fairly priced addons with huge amounts of content, free player-made mods, good traffic AI, great visuals, sounds, optimisation etc.. Overall its a must-have for anyone who enjoys well-done games in any genre and a must-try for pretty much anyone else. Demo is free after all.

Great game for SCS software. They really know how to make a good quality game with amazing updates. The of the best updates is the Multiplayer Mod. That is the best thing about ETS 2. Would definitely recommend this game to anyone, even if you hate cars and trucks. Play it with some friends, it will make the whole experience even better!

One of the most dull looking popular games of the era may also be one of its most addictive. When asked about Euro Truck Simulator 2, most people who haven't played it would not believe that it averages out as the third highest rated game on Steam. People who have played it know why. The game ties together the nihilistic number accumulation of RPGs, the realistic driving of hardcore simulators, the business aspects of the tycoons of yesteryear and the exploration of adventure games. It can appeal to almost anyone. Besides the complete sense of accomplishment which comes with every milestone, the game has created an amazing atmosphere of calm melancholy combined with a feeling one can only describe as nostalgia. I've never been to Europe, so shouldn't feel nostalgic about it - but what is nostalgic is the idea of travelling. The problem with many peoples travels is that they are in cars. Trucks are infinitely better.

Best served with your favourite radio station. Jokes aside, Euro Truck Simulator 2 is a well made relaxing truck driving game. It's not much a "simulator" in the exact meaning of the word, i'd say it's more a simulator adaptation for everyone to enjoy and not only die hard fans. Playing Euro Truck Simulator you drive all around a stylized Europe, from country roads to highways, mostly pleasurably detailed and with the precision of signs and traffic laws you'd expect from a simulator. What I found a bit annoying were strange intersections (you will never find intersections that take a lane away), not being able to refill in towns (every real town has at least a gas station), lack of content for non-central Europe states (you cannot go to Sicily for example) On the other end I really liked the AI of other cars/vans/trucks, they mostly react like human drivers would to unforeseen events. Another thing that even if good could be done a bit better is on graphics: while light effects, vehicles and textures are stunning, side vegetation feels incredibly repetitive (I mean, they use the same bush repeated like 10 times, for 20 km of road). The game is also a bit heavy on system requirements, it could have been optimized further. Overall, I'd recommend this game to everyone: even with its flaws it's a pleasure to be played.

Seriously. For those that are on the fence or are just here for a laugh, know that Euro Truck Sim 2 isn't a game with as much micro-management and tedium as you might expect of a simulation game. The driving mechanics are only as serious as you want them to be thanks to the many options it gives you. You can choose between an automatic and manual transmission while control support ranges from KB&M to gamepad to actual driving wheels / pedals. You are also given a lot of control when inside your truck, and it's important to use the tools at your disposal. Signal when turning or changing lanes, check your mirrors, use your GPS, mind any street signs and lights, use your wipers in the rain, and please, don't ram into other vehicles on the road. Deliveries have set time limits, and your vehicle only has so much health. Damaging it will effect performance and likely result in some kind of fine. If you are planning on expanding your trucker empire, that's not a plus. Some trips can actually take decent chunks of time but Europe, for the purposes of the game, is shrunk down a bit. Cities are rather small and getting between them doesn't take a few hours as it does in real life. And speaking of game elements, it's actually a nice looking game. Sound is average, but one thing I love is that you can use your radio to tune in to lots of radio stations from around Europe. It's a very nice detail that makes the drives relaxing. The devs care about the game, and have even been improving some features since the original release. I'm excited for their next projects.
