Euro Truck Simulator Review
Delivering goods like gasoline or apples all across Europe to cities like Paris and London is just the beginning in Euro Truck Simulator. You'll find yourself fully immersed in a lifelike truck driving experience. You start off small in your home country and work your way all over Europe in the hope of making it rich in this truck driving simulation game.
Tutorial to Get You Going
The setup in this game is really simple. In Euro Truck Simulator you start with €100,000 and have to pick your first truck. Only four are under €100,000 but after you have built up some money there are 12 trucks to choose from total. After you have selected your truck you begin a short tutorial. If you are familiar with this style of game you can skip the tutorial if you want. Important aspects of the game are covered in this tutorial like how to choose loads, how to pick those loads up and how to drop them off. Also covered are things like driving basics. Directions are given at every point where interaction by the player is required, so you wont get confused.
Big Money Euro Trucker
The premise of the game is really simple, deliver goods and make money. Each town will have one or more loading docks where you can pick up loads to be delivered. The loading docks have an interface that allows you to choose loads by destination, payout, or load type. Letting you choose the load allows you to determine how much time you want to invest or how much money you want to make. The higher payout loads require a long haul or lots of certification to haul. For dangerous loads you have to upgrade you commercial drivers license (CDL) to be authorized to haul them. Upgrading your CDL is costly but pays off in the long run with the ability to haul more profitable loads.
Upgrades Include Trucks, Licenses, and New Countries
There are several ways to spend your money in this game. You can upgrade your CDL, upgrade your truck, or unlock new countries. Upgrades for your truck fall under three categories: power,handling and fuel consumption. These upgrades help you get your loads from point A to point B safer, faster and cheaper. In addition to optional costs you must also pay for gas, repairs and traffic fines. Make sure you save enough money when upgrading to pay for gas to the next city or you'll be stranded.
The graphics in Euro Truck Simulator are incredibly detailed. Everything down to the smallest details are included in this game. The truck includes functioning wipers, blinkers, head lights and gauges. The cities and environment are no exception to this. Stop lights and road rules must be obeyed at all times. The scenery gives you something to look at while you make those long drives between cities.
Big Money Takes Time
This game does have one slight issue. The most profitable loads require driving a long way. These long hauls can require a significant time investment. They can be avoided and are not necessary, but they do make the most money. The trucks drive relatively slow, but if you upgrade your truck it could reduce the amount of time necessary, making these long hauls go a little faster.
Conclusion - A Realistic Ride Through Beautiful Country
Exciting travel all across Europe with beautifully detailed scenery and challenging loads to haul make this a great game. With every new city you will find new challenges and new adventures. Euro Truck Simulator is as close as it gets to real without actually stepping behind the wheel of an 18 wheeler. With the cab view, you just might feel like you have though.

Euro Truck Simulator is a good value game with good graphics and good gameplay. You can drive around Europe and complete jobs to get more money and you can buy bigger and better trucks. You will have to buy more fuel when you run low, each truck has a different fuel tank capacity. You can deliver all sorts of goods to many different locations around Europe. Eventually you will get tired and will have to rest at petrol stations. During the game you will get weather and time changes unlike some games and have to turn lights and wipers on. I found this game very entertaining and very enjoyable. Demo version is ok but you will only get 1 hour play time, and I suggest to buy the full version if, of course, you have the money. I give this game 5/5 and I truly advise this game to any age group but i loved it very very much

This is a very easy to understand/learn type of game. There are plenty of challenges, while overall remaining a fun game. the only down fall is for those people without patience, because it takes a bit to earn enough money to get better trucks. The 1st time i played it i got so caught up in it I ended up going 8 hrs strait, and didn't realize it.. If you like driving simulations( not racing/destroying cities) then you'll love this game. And the graphics are outstanding. One of the best parts of this game is it is possible to never end. There are countries,exp levels,and achievements to unlock and advance, but unless you run out of money to pay for traffic violations, the game won't end. And to show the realism, you will get fined for not turning on your headlights at night and you get sleepy over time(if activated). I think this game is totally worth buying.
how good ?,

SCS is an amazing company, like seriously they have the 18 WoS series, which this was originally to fall under, but then decided not to (it's available in north american shelves under the name big rigs europe or soemthing like that)anyways, AMAZING GAME, really realistic, i've loved all the WoS games as wel,l so this is just another amazing one. I say give it a try, amazing game :) definitely worth all the time to install, and if you really want i recommend buying it :)

Very real and stunning, I've been playing simulation games for years and don't see many as good as this. Recommended to anyone, 5/5.
Sep 23, 2009
This game is awesome, I love it!! Wish I could afford to pay the full version or I would. Extremely realistic and addictive !!
best game of the year 2009,
Sep 12, 2009
This is the best truck simulation game of the year. This is because it is set in Europe not America like all the other truck sims. It also comes with its difficulty of hard roads, very curvy if you like that kind of stuff... i do!. There is also so much more cargo like from coal to potatoes.. and it's more realistic. Lets say you start off in the UK for starts. If you have a load which has to be delivered in France you can take the ferry journey across which is one of the best ideas and also its not just that ferry but there are others which take you to small islands. the graphics and the models of the trucks are out standing to say the least. Far better than 18 wheels of steel; The trucks look exactly like the ones you see on the roads of Europe which is a realistic measure. This is a proper simulation game and adventure one as well. This game will be the best until there is a new one. Thanks for reading!!
