"This is a personal favourite (MGaceman), if ETS2 ran well on the old laptop, this wouldn't get played. Worth gwtting for old (5 years) PC's."

“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)

If your PC is (like mine) a bit too old for ETS2, then this one will do just fine!

I really enjoy this game, even though people may think it's boring to keep driving back and fourth to different cities to only drop off cargoes in order to gain more money. Although there is less cities to drive to, I still enjoy it. I love the feeling to be able to drive properly, and have played 20 hours within 2 days due to being obsessed. I'm not saying the game is perfect, hell, the second game might not even be perfect (can't buy it since I have a Mac) however it still is fun.


I am quite big on graphics, and I have to admit this isn't so bad. The trucks/cars both look great and so does the interior of the trucks. You can either drive on manual or automatic which adds realism, and so does the various types of weather, time, and the rules of the road. Sound doesn't seem to be much of a problem, it has realistic car, weather, truck and engine noises.

Having to deliver more and more in order to gain more money, does take a lot of time. But this leads to the game being more addictive and actually worth it. However, if driving back and forth for a while isn't really your thing, this can become a problem, though I ensure it wont be when you actually try it out, and even better, unlock more places.


One thing that has annoyed me while driving around on here is how stupid the other drivers are. They either go the wrong way, beep at me when I am not doing anything wrong, and/or randomly brake when there was no need to which leads me into hitting them, which leads to me having to pay for hitting them. Adding pedestrians or animals would also be something which would make the game better (no I do not want to run them over)

Another thing is how the cities are extremely small, and only have up to 5-6 roads, which is bad for when you want to explore other places other than the highway. The sound is good, but not so great. It sounds like I'm driving ontop of the truck rather than inside (might be because the windows are always open for some reason) and the radio does not sound like it's actually coming out of a radio in the truck.


Honestly, I love this game even though it has some flaws which I have to live with, however those are probably fixed in ETS2. I recommend this game if you either have a older computer, have a Mac and cannot buy the second one (which is my case) or have a few cash left or is low on cash to spend it on this. An overall 6/10 from me.

I really like this game. While I don't have the best computer, and my trees literally look like cardboard cutouts, it's easy to overlook that because the gameplay is just so... relaxing. This is what I used to play GTA San Andreas for... The mindless trips down the highway and through the countryside.

I really like the realism in some aspects of the game, for example,
- When it rains I was pleasantly surprised I could use my windshield wipers to see better.
- You have to sleep.
- Your have to fill up your gas.
You get fines for:
- Running red lights
- For speeding
- For not having your headlights on at night
- And for driving on the wrong side of the road

While there's no radio, you can add your own music which is kinda better, because I don't want to listen to hicksville music lol.
It also works great with a controller, although you still need to use the keyboard for some functions, although maybe there's a way to configure them that I haven't discovered yet.

Overall, this is simply really relaxing. I like how it isn't competative, and I can't wait to earn enough money to upgrade my truck. :D

The old truck simulation game. If you want to see Spain, Portugal or Rome, buy this game. The graphics are okay. And even you can buy your first truck using the 100,000 Euros but you need to buy the C Class. The small amount of money of the truck is the Runner (Renault) C Class that cost about like almost 95 grand (95,000 euros).

My disapointments of this game are:
Only four different trucks. Swift (Scania), Runner, (Renault), Valiant (Volvo) and Majestic.
UK, France and Germany has only three cities
Spain and Italy has only two cities
Portugal, Poland, Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland has only one city

This is the best truck game if you live in Spain, Portugal or Rome.

"What the hell am I doing with my life" is all I said to myself as I clicked the 'Purchase' button to this game, why on earth would I need a game about trucking... Besides that, it was a pretty cool experience and is a good time killer if you are VERY bored.

This is much more than just a driving game - you have to drive skillfully or you lose money from your jobs. I really enjoy playing this game and I wish my laptop was good enough to buy the second game.

This game is special. In good and bad ways; reminds me of the nostalgic feeling when games where made to work well not look good, yet weirdly bad when you realise you've spent over 50+hours offline driving a truck, in a computer game, in Europe that doesn't even look like Europe.

It's definetly worth a try if you're looking to get into these type of games.

When I first came to Europe, I have quite a fear in driving around. Coming from a left side steering country and different sides of traffic along with the all new environment and different language, I don't feel really confident in driving in Europe. One day, I have to drive... So instead of driving an actual car and tried it on the road, I picked up this game. I drove in the Europe highway, coming and out of the different city, enjoying the scenery, listening to the local radio, bumping to the car next to me... After a while I got more confident. But does it help me with my actual driving on the road? Well of course not, instead I just rent a car and start driving even though it scares me. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my time in this simulator.
