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)

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.

The first ever truck simulator based in Europe.. Released back in 2008.

I used to play a lot of this back when it was released in 2008 since I bought the disc version, but last year I decided to get the Steam version of this game too as it was on sale ;)
Haven't played it that much on Steam as ETS 2 is out, but it's still worth a try! :)

If the game is on sale, you should get it just to try it out atleast :P

As a person who has been a flight simulator addict for going on three decades now... ( I cut my teeth on a green screen IBM bootleg copy of Pilot trainer circa 1988 ) I have often been skeptical of the 'ground runners.' Trains, racing cars and boats all have the same singular fundementle flaw on the virtual stage. Primarily that no matter how much you REALLY want it to be true, you are NOT going to get a realistic perspective view of ... well ... ANYTHING. Land and city scapes will always be a generic reflection of what you just saw and are about to see again. SO; having established my rational for skepticesm, what am I doing here? To put it plainly. I'm cheap and my entertainment budget can be bought. In short for $20 I got the whole euro-truken-paint joben collection. You should too, hopefully here is why....

Pro # 1.

It's Europe and there isn't a freken war going on. Well okay... Actually about 2 thirds of Europe. Sans the Balkans half of Italy and 1/3 of Iberia. If you like Scandanavia. You are officially S.O.L. Rather Ironic in fact, considering that no less than half of the riggs you use in this series are models made in either Sweden or Norway. Back to the point. See something of the great old country without having to shoot it, dog fight over it or deal with Hitler or Napoleon.

# 2.

Beautifully simple. Elegantly addictive. I honestly went into this game with little if any knowledge of truck driving and after 6 hours that passed by like 30 minutes, I not only know something about the actual life style, I can also add that it was fun doing something curiously different than trying to beat a bunch of crazies to a finish line.

The one and only con I can come up with, is that the technology of it's day DOES let it down somewhat. However; as I mentioned before I got the collection so I expect the second edition to be a bit more advanced. Not only graphic wise but the over all control experience. This first one is the best to learn on. If you can get comfy with this one then you can graduate to more complicated challenges.
