“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)

This game is very addictive, now you might be asking "Random person on the internet, how the hell is trucking across europe addictive?" It's becuase your able to explore, now this games map isn't like the crew and driving across one side to the other is a small 148 KM that lasts maybe 30 mins or 50 mins, this game map is huge, and I haven't even drove through most of it, but if a simple drive haul from Poland to Vienna takes maybe an hour or so depending if your low on fuel or you are too tired to go and and need to rest, this game is pretty big, another thing is that it's a simualtor, that means that this game is somewhat trying to be the real thing, so running red lights, hitting traffic, and (basicly trying to go as fast as the AI is) is bad, oh and if your still reading this look in the controls before you go and drive, so overall I reccomend it for people who have a computer too crappy to play Euro Truck Simualtor 2, or someone who needs a game they can play when they are bored, or someone who has 8$ and dosen't know what to buy, my general rating would be an 8/10.

Fun fact, hitting C when moving enables Cruise Control.

Basically 18 Wheels of Steel: American Long Haul, except in Europe. A few less truck customization options as 18 Wheels of Steel. They've added a certification require to haul fuel, hazmat, etc... I would recommend this game, especially for those who enjoyed 18 Wheels of Steel. Though I would (and I did) buy it on sale.

Nifty little sim. Graphics are a 6, handling is a 8.
Decent little quest system tieing it all together, if that's your thing.

It's not my bag, but I can admire it.

Saving the world? Easy.
Creating my own civilization and leading it to world domination? Easy.
Catch all Pokémon? Easy.
Make my way through hell? Easy.

Parking a truck backward? Impossible. Great game though.

day three on the road. trucking is fantastic. it gives me time to think, time to reminisce and time to consider my future. just me, the road, and my truck. the three of us come together, dancing through europe, following each others' steps, without saying a word. neither the road nor the truck try to put me down, argue with me or lie to me. we understand each other, we co-operate, we accomplish. i have not felt so whole in all of my life.

day seventeen. i've had some disagreements with both the truck and the road. we've had fallings out; it seems as though the feelings were not as mutual as i had hoped. 3 or 4 minor collisions in the last fortnight have put our relationship on the rocks. the truck hums its engine ignorantly, seemingly unaware of the perturbations it has inflicted while the road says nothing. the road feels a guilt it isn't willing to face. we move forward - scathed, but optimistic

day thirty-two. i lost my job. i am driving home. the road is ignoring me. reversing in a truck is ♥♥♥♥ing hard

Pros:
-You simulate trucking across Europe
- Much more efficient for lower end PC's
- Fairly realistic in game mechanics

Cons:
- Doesn't have a 2 after it's name

One may ask, "Why the heck would I want a game simulating Trucking in Europe?" and to that I must say, why the truck not. I mean unless you live in Europe and your profession is trucking, when is the next chance you'll truck across Europe?

Another great question that may come to your head is, "Why buy Euro Truck 1 when I can get the much more polished Euro Truck 2" and to that I say, Why not both? You get the instant classic that is Euro Truck and its much needed sequel. And with most fans of the Euro Truck Series, I can assure you'll be anxiously waiting for the third installment of the Euro Truck series.

If you aren't convinced to buy this instant classic for you and your family (who am I kidding you won't share) there is nothing else I can say to convince you!

14/10 Keep on trucking friends

I originally purchased this game around the time that the sequel - Euro Truck Simulator 2 - was getting rave reviews. So why not buy the sequel? Because it was priced ten times more and - reviews aside - it seemed doubtful I would enjoy a game where I tediously drove a truck down highways avoiding traffic hauling cargo. At least, I thought, the first game would give me an idea if I could even stomach the genre. And if it did, well only then would I consider paying the price for the sequel.

I was surprised out how engaging this game was. Perhaps because it stood in such stark contrast to all my other driving games (the Need For Speed series, Burnout Paradise, and similar), but there was something very relaxing and enjoyable about driving between the lanes, making a point not to speed (much) and slam into other cars. It was almost zenlike. The graphics might not be particularly impressive but they got the point across, and the AI of the other cars was pleasantly non-aggressive. Figuring out the best routes to take and what cargos to deliver was not particularly challenging but it was relaxing, and a welcome change from the ordinary.

Sadly, that's not enough to sustain the game, at least not for me. Having advanced three tiers and played over twenty hours, the lack of variety is increasingly noticeable. All the highways and cities more or less look the same and the challenge is flat throughout. So while it was a wonderful ride up to this point, it wasn't enough to keep me playing until the nominal "end" of the simulation. However, it /was/ enough to get me interested in the sequel, which apparently adds extra content and gameplay. And since that was the whole point of my playing this game in the first place, I consider it time and money well spent.

It's strangely addicting driving through Germany at night in a storm with a slow truck which is hauling a huge trailer full of ice-cream...
