Well this game is great. When i play this game I feel like I am a true truck driver. Driving in the cockpit view is legit awesome.. This game really does give you an idea how the trucking industry work.. from driving hours to repairs all the way to upgrades to make your truck personal. I give this game a 100/100 by far the best trucking sim on the market!!!
Surprisingly great fun to be had heremungchung | May 17, 2013 | See all mungchung's reviews »
I'm not known to be a sim guy but this game is VERY fun. ETS 2 just draws me in and I am not certain why. It could be the business running element or RPG like leveling system of the game. I feel a sense of accomplishment after a successful haul. Very immersive and great atmosphere. ETS 2 is relaxing and enjoyable as a break from all the killing and blowing stuff up. SCS has made an accessible and play worthy game for all and not just the niche group. Legitimate fun to be had here (keyboard and mouse work well but at least a game controller recommended or take it up a notch and get a steering wheel for the full effect).

If you're into driving/trucks/simulator at all, even just a little, you will need to pick this up. It's a genuinely relaxing to do a quick run with some cargo from city to city. The fact that you can stream radio channels for a more authentic/fun driving experience is also awesome!
Controllers are not mapped too well out of the box, but once you map out your buttons it works really well with the game. Highly recommended over kb+m.
To sum this up: Great game, nice graphics. What a relaxing ride :)

A surprisingly addictive game even as someone with no prior interest in the trucking simulation scene. The driving feels nice and smooth even if there's many acts of dangerous driving that can go unpunished with only major crimes such as running red lights and speeding grabbing you a fine; cutting someone off as they're overtaking you or u-turning on a motorway is fine, apparently. It's quite repetitive gameplay but not in an exhausting sense, it's surprisingly good at keeping you involved actually and the running your haulage business provides an engine to drive you through the game, no pun intended.

At first I have to admit - I'm a huge trucking games fan. I played every one of them, all made by SCS software and also the Rig n Roll failgame. I waited for this game to come out, I was patient when they postponed the date of release. What can I say - this game is beautiful and made some of my dreams related to truck driving come true, but it lacks in main core of the game. The first and biggest flaw is lack of truck physics - trucks don't behave like a sports car and here they do. The springs are stiff as hell and it is really hard to fall out of the turn (the trailer doesn't "drag" You enough). There is absolutely no feeling of "bumps" - even Agrar Simulator 2012 has this so why SCS couldn't do it? Another huge problem is the map - Netherlands, Poland, Italy - YES, these countries are interesting and well made. But when You play the game You will find Yourself driving for endless hours through Germany which is the main core of the map. And here You find another fail - Germany roads are copy-paste from German Truck Simulator! Adding new graphics didn't help - these roads are so bad as they were in GTS so they are: 1. Unrealistic, 2. Boring, 3. Boring, 4. Unrealistic! The trailers - most of them copied from GTS, fail again. SCS needed over 2 years for this game - we could at least expect new, realistic models - but no. They're not here. Economy? This one doesn't exist. You can earn huge amount of money just driving - there are almost no costs, there are no oponnents, there is no real market and finally the payments You get are 5 times as big as in real world (at least You can mod that). No wonder why there was a payment nerf mod released 2 weeks after game release date. Finally - the biggest fail of all - lack of AI cars and lack of pedestrians (they are only in 3-4 cities but I can live with that). Endless hours of driving and You don't see any random accidents (SCS Promised that but it's not here), You don't see random roadworks (promised - not here, all I can see are the same roadworks everywhere). Finally there is almost no AI cars which could make a traffic jam and a trip harder. 3 lane German road to Berlin and You see 3 cars around. Seriously?!
The goods: 1. Truck modification options 2. Nice graphics (although AA is terribly ugly and the MSAA filter SCS have used should land in a trash) 3. Interesting sounds in part of trucks 4. Nice countries (except Germany and Austria) 5. Well made truck models 6. Lots of mods which make game better but not as good as it should be. Final grade - 6/10 for 2012 quite big budget for the simulator game. Comparing to products released before - 9/10. So let's say final decision is strong 7 - but a lot to fix. And finally the biggest fail of all - economy
