Summary: This is a "boring" game. That's for sure. You drive down the same roads every single time. The real problems of the game are the speed, and the repeated scenery. Other than that, a good game to play for 15 minutes once in awhile. Oh, and free modding as well.
Summary: Well back in it's day in 2008 when this game was released it was most certainly top of it's market, but unfortunately at that time it wasn't well known. But now with the release of it's sequel there is no comparison.
Summary: One thing I find very frustrating about this game is that as you progress through the game the vehicles tend to slow down (thats what happened to me anyway). When I first started playing the game my trucks could travel on the highway with cargo at 90-95 km/h but now my trucks drive at around 60-70 km/h and sometimes as slow as 50 km/h. If you set aside the speed problems you have quite a good simulation game but don't buy this if you hate slow trucks!
Summary: Feel the frustration of a real trucker as you mosey around this quite poor simulation of Europe. Where are the laneways, houses and pretty villages? Its just a depot and freeways with pine trees. Very boring. This should have been a freebie, shame on steam for charging me 7 bucks!
Summary: If you like to repeat things over and over this is a wonderful game: very nice graphic, good management component, almost no software bugs and continuous updates support. Oh, also don't forget free modding!
Excerpt: "very good way to spend alot of time tramping around Europe! although not advisable unless you have some sort of USB steering wheel. using the GT3-1 steering wheel i spent hours and hours on the game driving and learning new routes! you can upgrade your fleet and make money while exploring. The mail let down in the game is that you don't have much of a chance to get off the motorways, so a long drive can become sort of tedious, and the AI, well, they ...
Excerpt: "I recently got Euro Truck Simulator and have basicly got this to say about it. The controls to turn the truck, using the key pad, was quite annoying due only to the range, which was all or nothing. That made turning quite complicated and, on multiple occasions, caused me to swerve into the next lane. Though that said, it is much better than than needing to turn the steering wheel back manually. Another annoying fact is, when driving in the new location, ...
Pros: Nice drive on largely great roads . Beautiful graphics on the truck and scenery . Easy driving .
Cons: Annoying to look around the cab using the mouse . Annoying turning system when using the keypad .
Excerpt: "Summary: This is by far the best simulator game by a long way along with Euro Truck Simulator. I had always had a fetish for simulator games and this one ticked all the boxes. I play this with a Madcatz steering wheel with out this its pretty hard to play with a keyboard. I regularly get mocked for playing this game but that shouldn't effect your opinion on playing it. I would recommend this to any of my friends as after playing it for just an hour ...
Pros: Ongoing, High graphics, Great money to fun ratio, cheap
Excerpt: "I am totally addicted to this game, when my boyfriend first told me about it i thought BORING but after five minutes of playing it i was glued. You get to travel europe getting paid carrying a variety of cargo but if you damage the cargo they deduct money. You also get fines if you crash into vehicles or speed. You have to stop at petrol stations to fill up which you get charged for and have to make sure your driver doesn't get too tired. When you ...
TRUCKING HELL? NO WAY, I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A TRUCKER
7 March 2011
Excerpt: "UK TRUCK SIMULATOR I must admit, that when I was still at school, I had always wanted to drive a lorry across Europe on long distances, and felt it was a glamorous job - almost the equivalent of driving a steam engine many years ago. Even my father admitted to have liked doing the role, and my wife, before I had met her, had even looked into taking lorry driving lessons. This type of game is not everybody’s idea of a good game, in fact, I ...
Pros: Excellent game to take your mind off things
Cons: Have seen other games with better graphics, but still good .
