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)

SCS Software specialised in making truck simulations from its humble beginnings back in 1997 with Hard Truck. From then on in, it concentrated on the American theater with its successful 18 Wheels of Steel series. This game, Euro Truck Simulator is the first of its kind hauling cargo throughout Europe and whilst it has the same feel as its cousin 18 Wheels of Steel, the simulation experience is not quite there as it does feel a little arcade. And if it wasn't for the career objectives, I probably enter this game into an early retirement.

The gameplay length is pretty much unlimited as there is no official ‘end’. You can literally go on forever however even the most dedicated truckie sim fan will eventually want to give up. However the game cleverly designed career progression chart, where you need to complete certain tasks to raise the ranks from being a novice to the master trucker. Five ranks in all and designed in a way to get the maximum usage for this game however it does take some considerable time to become the master. And because there are many feats (achievements) to earn, it provides you more reasons to play it so if it wasn't for those I'd probably give it a flick a lot sooner.

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.

A decent truck/shipping simulator, nice for just playing an enjoyable, relaxing game, hauling freight from town to town.
7/10 for me.

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.

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.

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.

I'm not a big fan of these types of games but got it on sale anyway. I tried it out and was immediatley bored with it. So, I decided to have a little fun and try to flip cars off the road. One problem. The physics engine wouldn't allow me to. But I still did :D XD

Note: If you want to play a micro-management truck simulation game buy Euro Truck Simulator 2 instead. It is 10x better.

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