Euro Truck Simulator 2 Review

 

Euro Truck Simulator 2 – What can you expect?

What can we say that hasn’t already been said about Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Put on your driving gloves and lower yourself into a comfy seat, because you’re going to be there some time. Driving across Europe has never been so much fun.

Drive along an array of motorways and major roads linking European cities. Enjoy the spectacular scenery along the way.

What you will do in this game

Transporting high value cargo has never been so nerve-raking. Picking up loads from pallets of goods to helicopters and yachts, transporting them to their destinations across Europe.

The perils around every corner

Any hit you may take or speed camera you may race through leads to a loss of earnings and with an empire to build every penny counts.

Starting out

You start the game with a small garage and one truck. You earn money by transporting cargo from point A to point B.

How to grow your trucking empire

Expand your business by hiring employees and providing them with their own trucks and garages to house them. Now you can transport multiple loads, simultaneously and earn even more.

As you gain experience you are able to open up more high value cargo and hazardous loads, transporting goods over greater distances.

Customising your vehicle

Spread throughout the game are dealerships which allow you to upgrade and customise your truck with more items as you become more experienced.  These range from more powerful engines, to custom paint jobs and cabin accessories.

Managing your money

Don’t forget to keep a little money back as you’ll need it to refuel your tank for the long haul ahead!

Passing through those pesky toll booths doesn’t come cheap!

Accessories we recommend

Whilst the game can be played with a standard keyboard or joy-pad set-up, we found the game more realistic using the Logitech G-29 Steering Wheel and Pedals. Watch out for our reviews coming soon!

Our opinion in a nutshell

European Truck Simulator 2 is a great driving experience, with hours (ok, weeks) of fun. We are continuously being surprised by the game’s level of detail and feel it has set a new benchmark for simulators.
