It'd be cool to do a Sim Taxi too.

I meant, in the same vein as ETS2.

Call me a casual but I turned off the speed limiter. Nothing like driving at 140km/h and almost falling over at the next turn

I believe the devs patched out the speed limiter. That or they made the limiter an option. One of the two happened, i know for sure

I bought, played it briefly and was impressed. Unfortunately I can't see myself getting into it without a steering wheel which I probably won't get (although I did consider it) just for ET2.

They made it an option. The devs are fantastic though. They continuously add new features, options, and even trucks in the patches. Yeah brand new trucks are added in for free.

After all this talk, I bought the game. Played about 3 hours. The only reason I thought maybe I might have some fun with it is because I loved this game back on the Commodore Amiga called Ports of Call where you'd manage a shipping business with boats.

The driving in this gets a little boring though. I really would rather have a cool sports car that I could just cruise through traffic and all instead of this slow clunky diesel.

I bought my own truck, the cheapest one available, and I was barely able to make it up a few hills going as slow as 4mph.

Some of the early trucks aren't really good at pulling heavy loads. You kinda have to expect that. There are upgrades though that can help a little, but yeah, you have to build to a decent truck.

Actually, you should probably wait to buy your own truck and just do jobs for others using their trucks until you've got a bit saved up and the big bank loans become available.

The driving in this gets a little boring though.


Yeah, the scenery is kinda samey for each region. It doesn't really change much until you drive from Germany to France, or France to the Netherlands, or the UK...

It's a fun game to chill out with but if you're really expecting high action, you're going to be disappointed. Things start to get better when you can upgrade your garage, buy a 2nd truck, hire your own drivers, and start doing stuff like that, not to mention building up your own licenses so you can haul more expensive cargo. That's when the "managing a business" comes in, though it's not heavy on the managing either.
