It's finally your time: you can rise from the ranks of contracted truck drivers to become a mogul of your own trucking empire - one day and one delivery at a time. Euro Truck Simulator 2 puts you behind the wheel of a commercial truck, and place thousands of miles of road ahead of you. The games features over 60 European cities, along with their associated landmarks.

Choose Your Own Path to Greatness

In Euro Truck Simulator 2, you are in charge of shaping your trucking career by deciding which jobs to take. Drive to cities across Europe as a free agent, transporting everything from raw materials to volatile chemicals. Your route planner and the truck's GPS device will guide you through unfamiliar territory; but you must adhere to the rules of the road and complete deliveries in the time allotted.

Customize Your Rig and Upgrade Your Driving Skills

Longer hauls yield greater paydays, and upgrades help you get the most out of your trips. After each successful haul, you're rewarded with cash and skill points. You can spend in-game cash to customize your rig for better performance, or simply alter its aesthetics. Skill points enable you to qualify for more lucrative jobs, such as delivering volatile chemicals or time-sensitive goods.

Developing Your Empire

In-game cash does more than just fatten your bank account. It qualifies you for massive loans, which you can use to buy more trucks to launch your own trucking business. As your business grows, you can hire contract drivers to compound your business' income while you're out cruising the roads, on your way to the next delivery.

Pros

Euro Truck Simulator 2 captures the spirit of the open road, with detailed graphics and amazingly realistic depictions of European cities.

The game features seven camera angles, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of your truck as well as your travels.

A wealth of customizations makes your Euro Truck Simulator 2 experience as unique as your personality.

The game's day/night cycle and weather systems increase the simulation experience.

Each truck's radio system allows you to play music from your personal library, or link a directory of internet radio streams.

The developers of Euro Truck Simulator 2 have left the game open enough to allow modding; this strengthens its community, and allows more features to be added in the future.

Cons

There's no animation for accidents or other traffic offenses. Traffic tickets are automatically deducted from your account as you continue driving.

The game requires large amounts of scaling and anti-aliasing to achieve its maximum beauty; this can overtax mid- to low-end computers.

Weighing the pros and cons, Euro Truck Simulator 2 is a thoroughly enjoyable and challenging game for all trucking enthusiasts, except perhaps for those with a low-end computer. It's a great way to hone your trucking skills at home, even when you can't be on the road.
