“Scania Truck Driving Simulator reminds me of when I bought my first car. I didn’t need to have anywhere in mind to just want to get in and go there. It wasn’t about speed or trying to impress anyone nor about the destination. It was the journey and the pleasure of driving.”
80% – Plughead

“It’s probably one of the best driving simulators I’ve played, if not the best. In a matter of no time at all, I was driving a big rig around detailed locales, attaching and unloaded trailers to the back of my big rig with relative ease.”
I-Luv-Games

“Imagine Tricky Truck had traded its editor and damage models, for authentic cabs and DiRTy visuals, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect from this arduous artic assault course.”

Amazing!

For those who know and played Euro Truck Simulator 2: This is the same developer, so the "basics" in physics and gameplay are similar (Controls and graphics seem to be much better as far as I can tell).

The game itself is different. There is a freeride/delivery-mode as you might know it from ETS2, but it is smaller and, as far as I can see now, less complex (still much fun to play). The ´amazingness´ (Is that a word?) of this game comes from the many modes and missions. Drive along a messed-up road, a mountain pass, or a flooded area (...). This game seems to be the "middle" between ETS2 and 3, to show off what is planned for #3 and what this engine can do.

So, in short:

+better graphics
+better controls
+runs much more smooth than ETS2
+exciting (!) roads: building sites, narrow bits and tricky obstables of all kind
+brilliant missions
+online top-lists encourage competition and motivate to play every mission a thousand times
+very well playable with keyboard, pad or wheel
+not an easy game at all, but not frustrating->If you screw up a mission, you will go out with 0 points unable to compete with anyone online, but you will never get stuck in a mission, forced to do it a million times in order to be able to go to the next one
+++Devs seem to actually read forums and watch videos about their game and listen to the players

-the KI has some minor glitches: nothing game-breaking, more funny

Conclusion: If you liked ETS2, you will love this game even more. It has everything that people wanted in ETS2.
If you have never played ETS and you like to drive trucks in every kind of situation, then this game is something for you.

Recommended .... totally!

Edit: Game seems to crash when doing Alt+Tab, at least for me. Solution: Window mode (which means fullscreen + task bar) or use OpenGL.

Edit²: I found out that this game was released BEFORE ETS2 (Thank you, comments section!). Seems like the fancy graphics have tricked me into some wrong thoughts. ;)

Scania is a great compliment to ETS2. It provides a sizable amount of Challenge Stages, broken up into a variety of disciplines. Those familiar with Gran Turismo's Licence Tests will be familiar with these routines. They're challenging and rewarding, demanding that you learn the finer nuances of skilled truck driving.

My personal highlight would be the various obstacle courses, titled Dangerous Drives. You're given a point to point stretch where you have to navigate tight passages over a great number of environments, high-mountain switchbacks, flooded cityscapes, etc. 25 completely unique environments with fresh assets to test your skills under pressure.

Game comes complete with online Leaderboards (watch top replays too) as well as a nice bonus photo/video gallery covering the real-world annual Scania driving test completions.

Just remember, this is not ETS2. It's its own beast with its own set of unique charms. It's polished as heck just like ETS2 and even shares the same engine. But that's where the similarities end. Totally worth it to Driving Simulation fans and a complete no-brainer for those who follow and enjoy SCS Software.

Highly recommended.

Note: Review based on pre-Steam retail copy.

Ah, this one's awesome! I use my ancient Momo race wheel with no problems. Excellent physics and handling, the challenges are a blast. A full career mode would have been a grand slam but i'm having a blast with the rest of it anyway. Well done though!
