Launched eight years ago, Euro Truck Simulator 2 is still my all-time favorite game. I have a soft spot for trucks, and therefore when it was launched, the game found its way to my heart. The trucks are realistic, and I enjoy the fact that the player can customize it to his or her preferences. However, the extent to which one can customize the game depends on the level of your skills. Customization requires coins and credits which are earned by succeeding at different levels of the game.
Features of the game.
Often the quality of a game is evaluated depending on its features and the quality of the graphics. The graphics of the game are exemplary because the developer keeps updating them according to new trends in the real world. Some of the features of the game are:
- A Unique Gameplay
Unlike other simulator games, Euro Truck Simulator 2 allows players to create their profile and select a town that will serve as the base or headquarters of their operations. While setting up the profile, the player enjoys the freedom of customizing the game by selecting the truck to use to play the game; it is important to note that for beginners, the number of trucks to choose from is limited. These options increase as the player advances in levels in the game.
- Carrier Development
In the early levels of the game, the player saves up coins and credit by taking upon simple tasks; the complexity of the task increases as the player advance in levels. The player later uses these credits and coins to purchase a truck of their liking. Skill points are earned depending on the number of jobs completed. These points enable the player to enjoy privileges like longer deliveries and taking on jobs that involve valuable freights. As the game progresses, the player can purchase additional trucks, hire new drivers and a garage.
The game provides players with a wide range of countries to choose from. The stimulated European roadways and maps are more detailed and advanced than those offered in other truck simulation games. For UK and German, the game combines maps from other truck simulation games, increasing the number of cities covered while making the roadways more details.
There are a variety of trucks involved in the game. These tracks vary, and prices and the player's ability to acquire a truck depend on the skills acquired, credits and coins available. Though most people assume that the game only has trucks, the latest versions of the game include buses and bus stops.
We all have different tastes and preferences; this game might not have met your expectations. However, worry not, there are several other games similar to Euro Truck Simulation 2. Some of these games include; American Truck Simulator, Farming Simulator, Scania Truck Driving Simulator, On The Road and Train Sim World.
I always have a great time playing Euro Truck Simulator; it has been my favorite game for a while. The game's complexity increases as you advance in levels, which forces you to think critically; it boosts problem-solving and critical thinking. The fact that every coin is worth makes you focus on the game as you would not want to screw up and lose the gained coins. However, I feel that there more that needs to be done to the design. It is unreasonable to have buses and a bus stop but no passengers.
- The interior design of the vehicles is exquisite and detail.
- The setting environment is epic and immersive.
- The player is free to choose the truck and customize the game.
- Complexity if the game increase as the player advances in levels, which makes the game interesting.
- There are buses, and bus stops, but the game does not have passages on the buses or waiting at the bus stops, making it somehow unrealistic.
- There are no radio calls in the truck; this means drivers cannot communicate with each other during the trips.
