In Euro Truck Simulator 2 you get to drive a big truck around Western and Central Europe. Like the name says, this is not a racing game but a simulator. So patience and slow speeds especially in the cities brings better results than speeding.
In Euro Truck Simulator 2 there are lots of roads to drive, from city streets to narrow country roads and fast motorways. There are also a lot of different kinds of cargo to deliver. Special deliveries like fragile or explosive cargo types become available as you gather fame as a reliable trucker. If you have an accident, you have to take your truck to the workshop and repair the damage. You also have to take care of the refuelling the truck and remember to make a rest stop every once and a while.
The game includes many European truck models. You can also upgrade your tuck with different accessories. Some truck brands are real, while some are made up, but you can quite easily figure out what they are based on. To make driving a big truck easier and more enjoyable, Euro Truck Simulator 2 offers many different camera angles. This helps you to drive your truck through a tight spot, but also makes playing much more enjoyable.
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is not just a truck driving game. It is also a truck business simulator. The business part of the game makes it much more interesting than what it would be if you were just driving the truck around Europe. First you buy your own truck and have a small garage as your base. By making cargo delivers, you start to collect money that you can spend on improving your business. You can upgrade your garage or buy a new one. You can buy more trucks and hire drivers to work for you. The business model is quite simple so that you can still spend most of your time driving your truck, but building your trucking empire at the same time gives you an extra reason to keep playing a while longer.
