Conclusion: Euro Truck Simulator 2: Going East! is a must-own expansion pack for fans of the simulation series. The added countries and cities provide players with more variety and challenge, both of which were lacking in the original game.
Summary: When Euro Truck Simulator 2 was first brought to my attention, I'll admit I thought the attraction had to be based in irony. To wake up one morning and find the gaming community is going crazy over a trucking sim is unusual enough to make one suspect some sort of joke. As I played the game for the first time, I laughed. Here I was, driving a truck from London to Sheffield, trailer full of ice cream, and it was hilarious.
Excerpt: has had some appreciable buzz about it since its release a month and a half ago. I’ll be honest; I took this game for about 80% curiosity and 20% as a mild goof. It’s not to say that simulators can’t be good but there have been an increasing number of them coming from Eastern Europe (this one hails from the Czech Republic). Surprisingly, this game is very solid. It does have a few flaws but by and large works well.
Summary: There are titles in the simulation market which can be sold on the novelty factor alone, but tend to be disappointing games. Euro Truck Simulator 2 is not one of them, it is strangely cathartic, engaging and relaxing. Unlike other niche games, there is a smaller barrier to entry and features a simple control scheme for newcomers.
Excerpt: Simulation games are usually titles that only appeal to the niche market and the enthusiasts. I am neither of those. I have no interest in trucks in Europe, and little interest in simulation games of this nature, so then why was I able to enjoy Euro Truck Simulator 2 as much as I did? From the outset, this iteration of SCS Software ‘s truck simulation series is hugely more accessible to players new to the series, and the genre.
Review: Euro Truck Simulator 2 is, despite its premise, a fantastically designed sim

Excerpt: It would be far too easy for me to dedicate the following paragraphs of this review to nonsensical bashing of a game where its entire premise lies on driving massive trucks from location to location. However, these sim games exist because the fan base for titles like these is out there, and after dedicating quite a while to Euro Truck Simulator 2 , I can honestly see why.
Excerpt: I never thought a truck-driving simulator games could be fun, but Euro Truck Simulator 2 proved me wrong. There is something soothing in watching the world go by from the high and mighty cockpit of a Volvo FH16 Globetrotter XL. If you are used to more traditional racing games, getting used to the way trucks handle in the game may take some time.
Excerpt: Konceptet er enkelt: kør en last fra A til B og tjen penge. Vælg næste rute og drøn ud i solnedgangen på de endeløse europæiske landeveje eller køb nye lastbiler og lav dit eget fragtfirma. Det er forbløffende tilfredsstillende, at levere en uskadt last til destinationen, hvilket måske er grunden til at Euro Truck Simulator 2 sidste år blev lidt af et kult-hit i simulation inderkredsen. Hvis der altså findes sådan en. Overraskende populært blev spillet i hvert fald.
Pros: Det gigantiske Europakort er blevet større, Et fantastisk afslappende spil, Uanede trucking-muligheder
Cons: Stadig meget ensformigt, Måske ikke så meget at komme efter hvis du har ETS2
