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.
Simple but funadryanor | Sept. 19, 2014 | See all adryanor's reviews »
I have absolutely no interests in cars. Most of my friends love them, talk about cars all day long. I don’t get it. That’s why I am so surprised that this game is so much fun for me. You start your little company and have to transport some goods from point A to point B. Simple, but very engaging. Driving is very immersing, you really feel that you’re driving heavy truck. Traffic is pretty realistic, sounds are AMAZING. You can also listen to radio stations thanks to built in radio. After completing some orders you can buy your own truck and transport more expensive goods. The single reason this game is so good in my opinion is the fact that you can listen something on youtube and still play it and I like that in games. The worst thing is that it gets boring after some time, but I still think that the hours put into this game were well spent.
Pretty fun overallcup99 | Sept. 13, 2014 | See all cup99's reviews »
I got this game a while back on a good discount and I wasn't expecting much out of it. However I was genuinely surprised when i actually had fun driving a digital truck around. A bit of a more passive game (Other than the time limits) and is relaxing overall. If you have some time to kill and want to have a bit of fun then this is the game for you. It's not very active however you have to be aware of the time limit, traffic, and other rules. I would definitely recommend for people who enjoy simulators because this one is pretty good. If you find it on a big enough discount (50-75% off) This should be a title you pick up.

This game is well worth the $25 it costs. Once you make a profile it is so fun to get money to buy your first truck. You can also get many mods for this game. One very fun mod is the multiplayer mod, with it you can play with your friends and meet people online! I give this a 9/10.
