Lets see if he got road rage or settled in to some leasurely EU truck driving...
TeroMarsu reviews Euro Truck Simulator 2----------
Ever dreamt of being a trucker? Just you, your truck and the open highway? If you have, you're in luck. SCS Software has once again teamed up with Excalibur Publishing to bring us another truck simulator, Euro Truck Simulator 2 (ETS2). The game promises to be the most in depth and the most realistic truck simulator to date. I have to be honest with you, I'm a virgin when it comes to truck simulators so I was excited when I was offered the chance to review ETS2. I've always been a fan of realistic driving games. Let's take a look if the game is as good as they say.
ETS2 doesn't have any story, which is only a good thing (stories don't really fit driving games, just look at the TOCA Race Driver series). Instead you create an alter ego and a company you'll be controlling and set off in the highways of Europe, delivering goods with a truck. The game area spans 12 European countries (Great Britain, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Italy). The developers have modelled the biggest highways between the 69 cities that they've included in the game. There are thousands of kilometers of road but don't be alarmed; you don't have to drive days to get from Aberdeen to Bratislava. One minute in-game is about 3 seconds real time.
