As simulators go, Euro Truck Simulator ears some kudos, but as an entertaining game, look elsewhere

Excerpt: I'm fairly certain that as Truck simulators go, Euro Truck Simulator Gold is one of the best. With it's huge road map stretching across several countries, with the addition of the UK in the 'Gold' edition it certainly does offer hours of driving, and all of this whilst transporting items such as...
Summary: This game is strange, the trucks are rubbish and easily damaged, you spend a lot of time refuelling and or running out of fuel and needing the breakdown services. You need to do endless repeated trips to gain enough money to go abroad, this takes ages.Not really a kids game as you have to know...
Summary: If you're new to SCS trucking games, here's a quick heads up for you. I'm going to get the bad points (niggles if you like) out of the way 1st. If you try to take a corner too fast (especially when coming off a motorway), the truck without warning goes into death dealing understeer which more often...
Summary: I looked at this on youtube and it looked good, when i got it it installed very fast, loaded fast but when i was finely in the game, it was so so so laggy, but i think it is because of my computer. i would recomend it if u got a good/fast computer (mainly gaming computer).
Summary: I'm only giving it 3 stars because It not what advertised it was Extra Play version and since downloading the Original from the developers site I find their version to far better ,better graphics and better play.
Summary: I bought this because I live in the UK and I thought it would be fun to run up and down the country virtually. Problem is, it's not in ANY way like the real world. The motorways are generic, the M1 between London and Cambridge is mainly dual carriageway!!!
Summary: I enjoyed previous titles for this game, and while this latest one is still good in terms of graphics and gameplay, I can't understand why so much stuff is missing. There is no radio chatter, no music option, and much less interesting sound effects.
Summary: This game which has some of the best graphics this side of the Microsoft Train Sim. Is a real must for the Simulation gamer and makes you feel like a real truck driver. It's a shame it's based on mainland europe and excludes the UK even though we are part of the EU ?.
