Euro Truck Simulator 2
a game widely known to be heading to Linux has begun it's closed beta and I have been lucky enough to have been gifted a copy to test, here's my thoughts on this odd title.
QuoteTravel across Europe as king of the road, a trucker who delivers important cargo across impressive distances! With dozens of cities to explore from the UK, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and many more, your endurance, skill and speed will all be pushed to their limits. If you’ve got what it takes to be part of an elite trucking force, get behind the wheel and prove it!
So it's a truck driving game where you run your own truck driving delivery company, odd but it's these types of games Linux needs to satisfy everyone.
If you remember I interviewed them
a little while ago and so It may come as no shock I was picked to test!
Honestly when I first loaded up I really didn't expect much from this title as it's not one i would usually
pick up and play, I am pleased to say I am more than pleasantly surprised by this one!
First thing that put a smile on my face, you can start in my home city of Plymouth!
The driving aspect is very nice, they give you 8 different views so hopefully you will find the one you want!
It does take a little getting used to, I may have crashed a few times trying to get out of where I was parked...
The performance of the game play was great, everything felt fast (as fast as slow trucks are...) and fluid and the interface seems to be designed really well and gave me no confusion.
I will do a proper review in good time once it's polished up and out in the wild (no issues found yet!), until then enjoy the view of my starting HQ!
