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)

English Review
This game is really good. I will say this most fundamental to ETS2 it decides it does not. Graphics good maneuverability can be. Ability to add your own music, the opportunity to complete missions, purchase of tractors. In this game, there are minor errors as little discretion on the map, faint sounds of tractors, loans, but all that's missing is the ETS2.
My rating 9/10.

Slovak Review
Táto hra je fakt dobrá. Poviem to najhlavnejšie na ETS2 to rohodne nemá. Grafika dobrá, ovládateľnosť môže byť. Možnosť pridať si vlastnú hudbu, možnosť plniť misie, kúpa taháčov. V tejto hre, sú aj menšie chyby ako malá voľnosť na mape, slabé zvuky tahačov, pôžičky, ale to všetko, čo tu chýba je v ETS2.
Moje hodnotenie 9/10.

This simulator is awesome!
If you love simulator games and this goes on sale I would recommend this to you!

One thing I do not like about this game is the fact that you have to save a lot of money to visit another country. This feature could've been done a little better...

It's a little hard to get a large amount of money and everything in this game costs a lot; the values could've been a little nicer

- BUT I DO LIKE THIS GAME!
- The handling is nice, feels like a heavy long vehicle!
- The cities look perfect
- The Roads are well-built
- The Graphics look good!

I'd Recommend saving a little more and getting Euro Truck Simulator 2 as it is a lot better as you could guess...
But if you are unsure if you like simulators or not and this is 75% off, this is a good test!..

A brilliant game for when you have half an hour to kill. Quite relaxing, yet still requires you to concentrate a bit. Sim fans, go for this one! :)

It is an entertaining game. You get to explore Europe with your truck and deliver goods. You grow your company and make alot of money! You can hire people and have your own trucks.

Well programmed, does what it promises to do. There is a major flaw however: driving around virtual cargo is no fun at all. Added to that, the roads and the scenery hardly depict the real world. Short routes, unrealistic cities and bland graphics which are repeated at several sections in the game.
Might be passable for young children, avoid if you are looking for a driving sim.

Bought on a whim. The game is serviceable enough but not much going on here. Drive point to point, upgrade every once in a while. Stop for gas. It's all terribly dry. Some more varied graphics and smarter AI would have nudged it to positive, but not by much.

Euro Truck Simulator no GPS & auto packing, but it can travel Spain & Portugal (Euro Truck Simulator 2 can't (except use mods)).

Fun in theory, horrible to play in actuality. Impossibly bad controls, gravity-free physics (seriously, you tap the key to turn and your truck swerves violently across four lanes of traffic). I also couldn't get any music to play (that could've been an error of mine though, to be fair).

It could be me, not being a PC gamer by default, but it seems you need at least three hands to operate fluidly. You need one for directional control, one for the mouse, and at least another hand for the wipers, horn, lights, gears, etc.

I loved the idea, it seems like it SHOULD be one of those games that is relaxing to play, no real rush, quite pretty in its own way... but no. It's infuriating. The slightest twitch makes you lose your trailer, or gain an offence.

I overturned my trailer (which was detatched from my truck) at one point, paid out almost 1800 Euros for help, and despite my money going (leaving me with no money for petrol), my trailer remained on its side until I rammed it back up the right away (which of course gained me offenses etc).

2 might be better. I might get the demo. Wouldn't bother with this one, though.

This game is amazing. A wonderful game if you are stressed bored, or just want to relax. Controls are wonderful and smooth and it runs perfectly on a 2007 Imac with 4 gigs of ram. Definitely worth checking out as well as the sequel.
