Should I play Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Scandinavia in 2024?

The good

Reviewers praise the DLC’s Nordic landscapes, describing them as serene and vast, with winding roads and picturesque villages. The focus on Norway’s geography, including fjords and mountains, is also highlighted as a positive aspect.

The bad

The main criticism is that the DLC is overpriced, adding relatively little new content to the game. Some reviewers feel that the DLC does not accurately represent Norway’s scenery, particularly the rugged and beautiful areas outside of Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger, and Kristiansand.

Verdict

While Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Scandinavia has some redeeming qualities, its price and lack of diverse Norwegian and Swedish scenery make it a hard sell. If you’re a dedicated fan of the series or Scandinavian landscapes, you might consider this DLC. However, for everyone else, it’s hard to justify the $18 price tag for what feels like a lacking experience.
