Euro Truck Simulator is a relatively new title from SCS Software. The game allows you to travel all over Europe delivering cargo from one city to another. Each drop-off gives you money and Exp. which can be used to upgrade your truck and your driver's license. The game is a beautifully crafted and is definitely worth buying. The graphics of the trucks are brilliant and the different ways that the game allows you to customize your truck is endless. This is not the only endless thing, the routes are designed to take you to any destination from London to Birmingham or Glasgow to Paris. The traffic AI is smooth and is a lot better than in some of SCS's previous games. The driving controls are both easy and simple but can be changed at the player's discretion. The way that the truck's and trailer's physics come across are spot on and behave the way a real truck would. The game is great for both beginners and experts as it allows experts to park their trailers but beginners can skip the parking process. The game may be good in some aspects but lacking in others, for example it takes 15 minutes real time to drive from Edinburgh to London, I think that it should be longer as this would encourage players to think about which route to take rather than the longest most highly paying route. Also it is very tedious to level up as it takes many journeys to unlock a more powerful engine which can be a downside. Maybe crank up the amount of time it takes to get places and lower the time it takes to level up, other than that the game is smooth!
If you've enjoyed truck sims before, you have no excuse to miss out on this one. Great map, great roads, great trucks, spot on controls and splendid graphics. Any previous titles are a joke compared to this gem. The Scania Truck Sim was a good indication of what to expect from ETS2. And they delivered. The pacing is perfect. The trucks never feel slow, the paychecks never feel like cheats, but the game also never drags. There's almost always something new to buy after each trip, and taking a bank loan means that you can get a nice fleet of trucks from the start. The AI drivers will never bring as much money as you can by driving yourself, so you'll still roam the roads of Europe in your tuned monster, while you rub your hands each time an employee brings in some cash. Trips range from a few minutes short to hours long, but there's great diversity and choice and you can specialize anyway you want. Do you want to take the slow and short route? Or do you prefer to stay fast on the highway? Buying expensive garages allows you to teleport to their locations between jobs. And you do get penalized for traffic violations, but it never gets frustrating. The towns are small but they do feel like the real thing. And since time is scaled, you'll usually prefer to stay out of traffic lights altogether. It will take you some time to find things which could've been improved, but there's nothing game breaking. And even after you've pimped your truck and own garages in most towns, having more money than you can spend, taking a 2 hour job that takes you all around Europe will still be enjoyable. There's nothing quite like it in any other game.
This game is amazing! Loads of customization abilities, beautiful graphics, fantastic physics and true to original landmarks and country specific features! I love this game because of its realism, but without the annoying parts of real life (you don't die if you crash your truck). Driving through different parts of Europe from, Italy and Poland to Norway and Scotland, you can see the landscape changing, it's amazing to see. It's a truly relaxing game I love to play after a days work! A great buy with guaranteed hours of joy! Good Game. Looks good. Buy it.
I got this when it was on sale 2 or 3 weeks ago and literally have been streaming it loads. It is full of fun and installing the TruckersMP multiplayer mod allows you to play online with viewers which adds even more fun to this game. Also there is lots of DLC available to extend the map and add customisation to your trucks so will definitely invest some DLC at some point. I can recommend this game to anyone wanting a fun experience
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.
