"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."

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)

Bought in a bundle, this is worth the buck or two spent especially if you have an older PC to play it on. ETS1 was a great idea and has been improved with the release of ETS2. Pros and cons of this game...

Pros: Graphics not bad for its day and you can play a short run in 10-15 mins. While getting in accidents, speeding, and running red lights gets you penalized, you can also play the jerk driver cutting other drivers off and hogging two lanes (which is almost a necessity if driving via keyboard). Hint for new players--get your hazardous cargo cert ASAP so you can make more money faster.

Cons: A careful study of the road map shows this game was unfinished. Back roads all over Poland, a few in Germany, and none anywhere else. When driving around, you see several overpasses that were likely intended to be used for backroads, but were left unconnected to anything. There are also loads of no-go zones in the cities, where AI vehicles can drive, but you cannot. Another minor complaint; the physics of the truck in a cloverleaf turn allow for too much drift and jackknifing the truck is easy to do, even at low speeds. I have learned to go real slow through these.

I am looking forward to playing ETS2, but if you have an older PC and/or a light wallet, you should give this game a whirl.

I don't know why, but this game makes me feel pretty good.
Maybe because its not that tense.
Or the fact that you are not running around shooting things like most games these days.
I am definetly getting the second one when I have enough money.
And yes, I would recommend it to anyone who wants a kinda-relaxing game instead of a tense game like first person shooters.

This is an amazing game, and i recommend this game for people who can't afford the 2 or for people who are Mac users (i'm a mac user too) , although if you can get the 2 with a windows it is much better. I hope the creators of this game will make a Mac version for Euro Truck Simulator 2. PS: This is still a really good game for its time, hope you like it as much as i do.

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! :)

This older version has dated graphics but can give you a taste of what the job of truck driver is mostly about: choose job; pick up load; drive to delivery point; drop off. Repeat.

Exciting? No. Give me a racing game, instead...

Note: ETS 2 seems to have MUCH better graphics, so skip this one unless you can find it in a bundle (like I did).

Why do I like it? I have no idea. It's just a mindless task of driving a truck. You are driving a bloody truck through Europe. It's strangly addicting. If you're wicked bored and want something to pass time with, get this. If you want an exciting game with fast paced content and excitment, skip it.
