“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 stinks if you expect to play it with a controller.
If you want to play it with mouse and keyboard it will work, but there is too much good stuff out there to waste an afternoon trying to get this to work with a control pad....even if there is some way to make this work with d or x input it wouldn't be worth the time it would take you to figure it out, even if the game is worth a dollar, it isn't worth the time you have to spend to make it work with modern hardware.

Avoid.

-I went all the way from london to newcastle (About 3 in-game hours), for a delivery.

-I Noticed that I don't have the cargo

-Then I realised it was still in london.

-I rage quit

10/10

Seriously, though. Amazing game, but If your not poor, the second one is better, so get that instead.

If your wondering how I got it for free, it's because I got steam wallet vouchers on my birthday.

you can use turn signal and hazard lights, TAKE THAT GTA.

10/10

Seriously though, I bought this game on very low sale (first simulator game since Flight Simulator from 2002) and I am pleasantly surprised by the graphics quality. On High Graphics, it looks like somewhere between Arma 2 and Arma 3, if that helps. The HUD is great, controls are easy, missions are well-explained. ONLY complaint is the lack of music, but you can add your own, which I will def be doing. If you want a solid simulator, I recommend this.

This game is pretty fun, very relaxing. The best way to play is to throw on a podcast or your own music and cruise around doing jobs. Some of the best features include how easy it is to run (I'm playing it on my laptop instead of my PC and it still runs nicely and looks decent), plenty of areas to work with, a fair variety of trucks, and lots of different things to ship around.
However, many of the areas are locked behind pretty big prices, making it pretty difficult to expand beyond your few cities you have access to when you begin. As well, some of the well-paying jobs are locked behind inspections that are expensive.
Overall, if you're looking for a pretty fun and relaxing game that you can pour some hours into then I'd say get it on sale. You will be investing a lot of time so keep that in mind. Oh, and a controller or steering wheel would make driving a much more enjoyable experience.

This game is AWESOME!!! None of my friends take this game seriosly but I love it!! It's a step down for Euro truck sim 2 but Still worth it specially on sale!

If you can only get one get the 2nd game but both are very worth it IMO.

Its just awesome 10/10, basic controls - easy to play, 'top quality' Although euro truck simulator 2 is better, but this game is where that sequel in games started, and its still good, as so is star wars battlefront 2 (10/10) - they are both old. However dont expect too much for a game which was realesed in 2008, obviously the technology wasnt as advanced today, this game is simple in a way which theres basically 3 objectives: 1. dont crash, 2. be efficient with your fuel and 3. get to your chosen destination with no problems. Overall its a great game and i do recommend this.

Don't buy this game. At first it was a fun little Simulator game, but after my first time playing it things only went downhill. I first took off 1 shift at work, then another, then soon I had to start sucking ♥♥♥♥ to pay for my Euro Truck Simulator addiction. My wife left with the kids and I only just realized it after I went to the fridge and noticed I was out of pizza rolls, and mountain dew. Thankfully I pee in the 2liters I saved up so I still have drinks for a while. I turned my living room into a Euro Truck because I purchased a rig and placed it into my living room in order to immerse myself even more.

But overall a pretty good game I would have to rate it an 8.5/10

This may have been 'the sh**' back when it was released and it by far deserved to be bue the original Euro Truck Sim is nothing compared to the second, however for the enthusiast I would reccomend it. Just don't get excited as this has barely anything compared to ETS2. I didn't like it so I refunded it, yet I LOVE the second game. Definitely buy this if trucking is more than a passion for you, just note that it may fall short of your expectations.
