Reviews

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

If you want a world to drive around in and explore with cargo on the back and visions of long, hard motorway drives cross country borders: Get ETS 2 and avoid this.

If you want technical driving, testing your skills at low speed manoeuvers and slowly squeezing yourself through tight gaps having to focus hard: Get THIS and avoid ETS 2.

Nothing more to be said, really - graphically, physically and in pretty much all regards, this is very nearly the same game as ETS 2. Only difference is as stated above. This: A technical truck driving simulator. ETS 2: An open truck driving simulator. This doesn't have any managerial aspects (running your own business) but ETS 2 does.

One thing I will add though. I think this game would have been better served as a DLC of some kind.

Brief Review

A truck driving simulator might not sound like the most exciting of games out there, but Scania is very much a game. This isn’t just another delivery simulation. The crux of Scania Truck Driving Simulator is maneuvering your big rig through a number of dangerous situations and hazardous courses filled with real-life obstacles. You’ll be put into critical situations where flooding or the aftermath of an earthquake, play a part in compromising what would normally be a direct and hazard free delivery route

Pros and Cons

Pros

Scania Truck Driving Simulator is similar to Euro Truck Simulator 2, (ETS2) why? STDS acts the same to ETS2, but a lot more challenging. Instead of driving to, Point A to Point B on the highway to hell, you get something called "Dangerous Drives", In the these type of challenges you will have to manoeuvre you're truck in tight spaces, keep an eye on you're mirrors at all times and you're trailer.

If your new to the game, don't worry STDS comes with a basic's to trucking. It will teach you how to park a trailer in various scenarios, which will come in handy. (Duh)


Overall if you're bored of ETS2 and want more of a challenge, then Scania Truck Driving Simulator is for you!

11/10 - Would drive of a cliff again!

This yet another great game by SCS, however i do not play it that much i will do the odd challenge here and there when i am not playing Euro Truck Simulator 2, this game is perfect for those who find ETS2 too slow and boring with the long journeys as the longest challenge i have done in this game was no more than 3-4 minutes long. Also great for people who are competitive as the game features online leaderboards if you have the money to spare i would definatly reccomend grabbing the Deluxe bundle edition as you will get 5 games and plenty of the DLC for ETS2 for only $50 which is alot cheaper than buying the 5 games individually and they are all just as good as each other even if some are older or you only end up playing ETS2 (which alot of people do) it is definatly worth the money (and the money saved) to get this game in the bundle.

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 obstacles 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 AI 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. ;)
