As someone with no interest in trucking I'm surprised at just how enjoyable this game is. It's slow, it's frustrating at times, but when you're out on the road there's a feeling of relaxation and freedom that makes it quite appealing. Not for everyone, of course, but give it a try, especially if it's on sale.
Euro Truck Simulator 2 has a special place in my Steam library. It is a game that I play on rainy days, hot days, or just days that have been a bummer. There is nothing incredibly exciting about ETS2 (at least not for me), but it is incredibly rewarding. Boring is not the word; I think that relaxing is a better description. The trucks are incredibly detailed and customisable, but the environment and other vehicles are lacking. However, this does not detract from the game, as it is very easy to sit back, relax, and get lost in ETS2's version of Europe.
I never would’ve thought that I would ever play a game like Euro Truck Simulator 2, let alone buying it. If you would’ve told me a year ago that I would play a game like this for many hours, I would still be laughing today. However, I did buy the game during a discount – of course after I played the demo for a bit – and I’m glad I did. This game can hold your attentions for hours at a time, and playing this game in full graphical glory is a thrill. Build your own company, expand throughout Europe and become the godfather of the trucking road. A big thumbs up from my side!
The best way to describe Euro Truck Simulator 2, I think, is the word meditative. This is not a racing game, and it's all the better for it. It's a game that punishes you for not following the road rules or driving unsafely. It's a game that doesn't even let you go fast. It is, as the name suggests, all about trucking through Europe. The routes are scenic enough, and the variation in weather and daytime adds some challenges to the driving experience. But the game is about getting cargo from location A to B within a particular time frame. And it's a very relaxing experience.
Some people that say simulators can't be fun. Those people have obviously never played Euro Truck Simulator 2. This software is a perfect mix between simulator and game. The map is huge, and it gets even bigger with the Going East DLC, and the Scandinavia DLC. There's tons of different cargo to move around throughout Europe in your truck. You can customize and upgrade your trucks, and arrange your cabin settings. You can even manage your own garages, drivers, and their trucks. The game has tons of roads to drive on. City roads, mountain passes, freeways, dirt roads, and even the roads of Great Britain. The more you drive, you'll level up to unlock new cargo types and lengths to gain more money per run, as well as just having fun while driving longer. As well as the fact that there's a cargo DLC that I highly recommend. They've also got some cheap paintjob modifications to personalize your truck if you feel the need to. It'll be a more prominent change in multiplayer though (through a mod). The controls in the game are fully customizable and mappable. Whether it be controller or a wheel/shifter/pedal setup. The game offers in-game radio from real radio stations, or you can add your own music to the game to listen to. The graphics in the game look wonderful, and are very customizable. The game isn't too demanding on low settings, and can look simply amazing at higher settings. As well as improving the games visuals with mods. And, there's also a multiplayer mod that you can use your single player save with, and vice versa. It's not too hard to install, and if you need help, there'll always be tons of people out there to help you with your problems. It adds a very fun element to the game for you to meet new people, and even play with your friends and start a convoy. The community for this game is huge and active, you won't have problem joining a server with nearly 1000 people or more. The modding community for this game is also active, and there are some pretty game enhancing modifications out there to check out if you're into that stuff. So, that's about it for my review. I hope I've convinced you to purchase the game. Because, chances are. If you're reading this and are looking into a truck driving simulator, look no further. You've found it, and you'll love it.
