“Easy to pick up and play; well detailed truck cabin, good fun to drive around Europe.”
4/5 – Macworld

About This Game

The original Euro Truck Simulator - the game which has become the classic of the genre and is still relevant today. The first truck simulation game in a European setting, with European long haul trucks!

Drive freight from London to Rome to Berlin to Madrid to Prague - and many more cities - in realistic vehicles. Faithful reproduction of driving trucks on the European road. Pick up a variety of cargoes, and deliver them on time! Highly realistic, meticulously detailed models based on real trucks. Actual working instruments such as flashing indicators, temperature and low fuel warning lights, wipers, and a full set of gauges. Pan the camera around the cabin, just as if you were actually sitting at the wheel.

Note: Unofficial "mods" are not supported by the Mac OS version of the game! (file formats are not compatible with Windows PC version)

I bought this after having exensively played Euro Truck Sim 2, so I figured, hey why not check out the orginal. I'm sure the game is fine and all over than older graphics, but for me the game was un playable. Could not get my wheel to work, could not get 3 screens to work, for the those two things totally killed this game for me and I got a refund from steam shortly after. If neither of those things bother you, then go for it.

you can use turn signal and hazard lights, TAKE THAT GTA.

10/10

Seriously though, I bought this game on very low sale (first simulator game since Flight Simulator from 2002) and I am pleasantly surprised by the graphics quality. On High Graphics, it looks like somewhere between Arma 2 and Arma 3, if that helps. The HUD is great, controls are easy, missions are well-explained. ONLY complaint is the lack of music, but you can add your own, which I will def be doing. If you want a solid simulator, I recommend this.

This is the first driving simulator I've bought and I will say, it is very unique in a good way.
It is not a game, it is a simulator and with that in mind it ticks most of the boxes for realism.
Graphics are not great by todays standards, however, it will run smoothly on older PCs and low spec laptops.
It can be stressful (just like real truck driving) with an emphasis on obeying traffic laws, fuel consumption, maintenance & damage of truck etc..

I like:
The level of detail for cockpit view and the realism of controls -
(headlights, wipers, cruise control, shifting through the gears)
Playing your own music collection through the truck stereo.
Day/Night, weather and traffic.

I don't like: The repetition of long hauls on mostly boring highways (but it is a simulator!)
You have to play for hours and hours to earn very little cash (and spend your profits wisely)

Addictive, satisfying but stressful.

*I use a keyboard and mouse for controls but would recommend using a game pad controller because the keyboard is very difficult for steering and throttle accuracy.

Even in the recent Steam Sale, I can't afford for Euro Truck Simulator 2. But since this is cheap, and could even run on a old computer, I say this is still a great game to start you off to Euro Truck Simulator 2. Decent gameplay, but friends could ask "Why are you playing this?"

Its just awesome 10/10, basic controls - easy to play, 'top quality' Although euro truck simulator 2 is better, but this game is where that sequel in games started, and its still good, as so is star wars battlefront 2 (10/10) - they are both old. However dont expect too much for a game which was realesed in 2008, obviously the technology wasnt as advanced today, this game is simple in a way which theres basically 3 objectives: 1. dont crash, 2. be efficient with your fuel and 3. get to your chosen destination with no problems. Overall its a great game and i do recommend this.

This may have been 'the sh**' back when it was released and it by far deserved to be bue the original Euro Truck Sim is nothing compared to the second, however for the enthusiast I would reccomend it. Just don't get excited as this has barely anything compared to ETS2. I didn't like it so I refunded it, yet I LOVE the second game. Definitely buy this if trucking is more than a passion for you, just note that it may fall short of your expectations.

Don't buy this game. At first it was a fun little Simulator game, but after my first time playing it things only went downhill. I first took off 1 shift at work, then another, then soon I had to start sucking ♥♥♥♥ to pay for my Euro Truck Simulator addiction. My wife left with the kids and I only just realized it after I went to the fridge and noticed I was out of pizza rolls, and mountain dew. Thankfully I pee in the 2liters I saved up so I still have drinks for a while. I turned my living room into a Euro Truck because I purchased a rig and placed it into my living room in order to immerse myself even more.

But overall a pretty good game I would have to rate it an 8.5/10

If I had one suggestion/complaint, it would be that the other cars never follow the rules alot of the road. Half the time i had an aciident, the other car had rammed into me. That would be my only complaint for this game. Overall, its an amzing game, and I'm very glad to have it!

Euro Truck Simulator is a 2008 truck simulation game created by SCS Software, using OpenGL, set in Europe. The player can drive across a depiction of Europe, visiting its cities, picking up a variety of cargos, and delivering them. Over 300,000 copies of the game have been sold in Europe. Its followup, Euro Truck Simulator 2, was released in 2012.

Players choose their starting country, from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom (V1.2 & V1.3 only). Initially players only have access to their starting country, except if it contains less than three cities. In this case one or more adjacent countries will be accessible as well. For example, starting the game in Italy or Switzerland, you get connection to the other for free. Then, players choose their first truck with a budget of €100,000.After this, players can start taking jobs from various fictitious companies and delivering cargo to various cities in their starting country to earn money. This money can then be spent on a new truck, upgrading the current truck, expanding the business to other countries and obtaining a license to drive flammables and chemicals.
