Summary: Great graphics make this an excellent truck driving simulator game. If you are not a wrong side of the road type of driver, going through intersections is interesting. You enter the roundabout on the left and exit to the left. I am using a joystick, but a wheel is necessary to get the most fun out of this game. Traffic, stoplights and roadways are very realistic. My only complaint is that there is no demo-freestyle mode.
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.

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.
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.
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.
TRUCKING HELL? NO WAY, I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A TRUCKER

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.
Pros: Excellent game to take your mind off things
Cons: Have seen other games with better graphics, but still good .
Conclusion: I am no truck expert, my dad is a driver thoe, I'm more interested in the railways my self, but i must say after playing many train simulators this game realy did please me, I am now thinking on getting a steering wheel and gear stick.
