Many other people say that a wheel or controller is necessary to enjoy the game, but although they may be better, the game can still be played and enjoyed with a keyboard and mouse. I suggest you rebind the keys to how they suit you as many of the defaults are simply impractical.
Euro Truck Simulator 2 lets you experience the world of cargo haulage right at your PC and it does it very well for the most part. You start with nothing, just taking low paying jobs in the quick job menu but gradually you will expand your company until you have your very own fleet of trucks and truckers all across Europe. Overall the graphics are great,the trucks and trailers in particular are very high quality. It's pretty hard to play with a mouse and keyboard but this is more than made up for with the controller and wheel support, if you don't have a controller or a wheel you might find this significantly more challenging to play.
When my mate told me about this, I dismissed it as a stupid idea and I doubt I am the only one to think this. However once I got it I couldn't stop. Having been to some of these countries and/or cities the have done a good job of representing the core elements of the regions and the updates are making it even better and more expansive. There is also a multiplayer mod which I highly recommend. Trucking with mates or people from all over the world is amazing, nothing like tooting your horn at passerby's whilst convoying along a road in the middle of Europe. I would like more roads and there are a few bugs (but of a game this size they can be forgiven for letting a few through).
This is a great truck driving simulator, but there are a few things I think should've been done 1) The cities, currently I'm attempting to search the whole of the UK, then travel to the rest of Europe, but so far all the cities are nearly the same, the only unique city is Bristol (I believe) and it's annoyingly unique, maybe the cities are different in the rest of Europe, but not in the UK. 2) Real life situations, I think it would be good if there were crashed cars, pedestrians running across the road in front of you (I don't know if that happens or not because I have pedestrians disabled) and things like drivers braking for no reason, it happens. 3) Stupid things, I was once driving along the motorway (or highway for you Americans) and then a car crashes into me and I get fined for the crash, now I was driving straight on one road, then the car literally just went onto another lane and hit me, I got the blame, so I got fined, which was stupid. So those are my main complaints about this game. (P.S: I got this game on Steam, not GMG.)
The freedom within this game is beyond amazing. It's like being able to drive anywhere...because that's exactly what it is. With so much to explore, I would see plenty of people joining this game. It's a great time passer and it brings me a lot of entertainment.
