'These days, simulation video games have taken on a life of their own. Often shunned from the spotlight of the common gamer, these niche offerings instead try to dominate a particular specialization. Usually, the games in this genre fall into one of two categories: hardcore and casual. Hardcore simulations are your Flight and Train sims, that focus mostly on twisting lots of knobs and requiring a deep level of understanding from the player. These games are also often feature higher production values. On the other hand are the casual titles, such as Farm or Street Cleaning simulators, which are characterized by being very accessible but lacking depth or quality presentation. Euro Truck Simulator 2 doesn’t fall into either of these categories, which means it’s better than the casual throw-away experiences but doesn’t quite measure up to the elite of the genre. For better or worse, that makes it a rather appealing offering for those mildly curious.'
