Euro Truck Simulator isn't a racing game, or anything alike; rather you will drive trucks like you've never done before on a computer. Your objective? Transport merchandise all throughout Europe.
When you start the game, you first buy your own truck, and begin looking for work to transport merchandise from city to city across Europe - from Madrid to Lisbon, from Lisbon to Barcelona, from Barcelona to Paris. As you advance in the game and improve your skill, the jobs you aim for will be more important, and you'll have to travel further.
Driving the truck is easy, and the different characteristics of each truck are noticeable. Also, you have a good number of camera views for controlling the steering wheel and other actions, such as strapping down the load and parking the vehicle.
Lastly, a detail that should be mentioned is that the game is played on actual highways of the old continent, with city maps and a popular backdrop here and there, such as the Gate of Europe in Madrid, or the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
