    Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 is a realistic simulator like no other ones on the market.

    Reaching newer car models or chip tuning takes much too long but Car Mechanic Simulator’s detailed visuals look good for a low budget title and the game offers a chance to learn something really useful. [04/2014, p.61]

    "Letdown" and "lost potential" are two key phrases that fit Car Mechanic Simulator 2014. The game suffers from repetitiveness and monotony - after a while there are no surprises and various ways of solving problems. The game has a lot of interesting ideas, and the theme is original, but all in all there's not enough attention to detail and not enough gripping gameplay.

    Maybe you need to be a lot more into cars than I am to get something out of CMS2014. Objectively though, it just doesn’t seem like a whole lot of fun.

    More of an "encyclopedia of car service" than a game. Still, it has its good moments.

    Car Mechanic Simulator 2014 lacks the variety to entertain for very long, or the depth to succeed as a simulator. It’s nothing more than a series of one note puzzles.

    All right, folks. The only bad reviews this game is getting for User Score is from people complaining about something not being in the gaming; e.g., "this game should have racing." Are you kidding? The title of the game is called "Car MECHANIC Simulator 2014." Not "Gran Turismo Driver Mechanic 2035." And there's also people buying this game knowing nothing about cars and leaving bad reviews. After I completed every aspect of this game, I haven't sent my car to get fixed for something in a while [air filter (easy), fuel pump (not easy at all), oil (incredulously easy)]. People complaining and leaving bad scores for this game just because they didn't feel the need to even so much as try to find these things.

    SUMMARY: This game is very good, the people leaving bad reviews are a bunch of whining ****

    10/10 can simulate working on cars. This is the best car simulator of its kind I have seen be done. I like how it resembles what it's like to work as a mechanic. Expand

    Buy Car Mechanic Simulator

    I think this is best way to start my review i have played my fair share of simulators on and off Steam and Car
    Mechanic Simulator is one i have been craving for very long time i have been around and working on cars since 12 years old so i have good knowledge of cars and there workings.

    First appearance of the game when we start up is clean and simple which are good but some option need to be added which they will in upcoming patch.

    We start career mode and get under way graphics are good for simulator maybe little heavy on the reflection nice chrome texture we get first job you have job sheet which gives you rough idea what issue maybe and you need to find and fix this issue in start this can be little tricky but there are some things you can use to help make game play easier with high lighted parts etc

    Controls are very nice and smooth once setup feel great no major issues

    Test drive mode is low on scale but does help in sourcing the issues same with the scanner etc

    mission do slowly get harder and harder but for some people they might find it repetitive but i liked it its not to hard so some one with no car knowledge could play it

    It took me around 20 hours to complete the game which is good for simulator and developers have been more than helpful when facing an issue and im looking forward to DLC and possible 2015 version its a game which as lots of space to grow and become bigger i hope the developers run with that and build on what they have.

    Some people wont like the game and some will and for what the game is the price is right

    my rating is 10/10

    This is the definition of lost potential. It is a great start to what should be a high end simulator title. Adding maybe some racing, actually purchasing your garage upgrades, hiring mechanics, dealing with customers and multiple cars. Introduce real world issues, part shortages, ability to be sleazy, reputation building etc and you would go from an OK casual game to a top notch original simulator. Hopefully Red Dot will try again with a more advanced product. Expand

    The idea and overall potential of a game like this is exciting. Unfortunately, the Dev's have got it wrong on this occasion. It merely scratches the surface of what could be an amazing experience. The graphics are pretty good, control system is reasonable, sounds are ok but gameplay after an hour or so becomes repetitive and tiring.

    The game 'Automation' is a good example of the required depth and content to keep the player engrossed in a world of tinkering. Even it could do with going slightly deeper. If this type of content could be fused with CMS2014 it would certainly turn this game into what it should be.

    So, a conclusion.
    A great concept but lacking any real depth and addictiveness. The potential is there, only it should have been realised prior to release. I fear the boat may have already sailed for this one.....

    This game has a steep learning assumes you know everything about cars. I wanted to get this game to learn more about cars and see what makes a car tick, but instead I'm looking on the internet to see were the part i need to fix are on the car, this game is not for people like me who know nothing about cars.

    What a fu**ing waste of time!
    I wanted to play it, I really did, but I couldn't. It's so frustrating!! Undo every bolt, look around the car
    hopelessly, what am I a fu**ing robot?? They could have atleast managed to make an in-game hint list or something, but you got nothing. If you know fully how to disassemble a car from all the angles, good for you, however, for those who don't know - f**k you! The game gives you one lousy tutorial, in which you repeat the same s**t all over again and it doesnt even teach you the basics. Every moron knows how to operate a mouse! Click fest! I did not enjoy any of it. At all.

    Avoid this game, it's horrible..

    Better do mechanics in real life, it's more interesting.

    "It's so bad it isn't even funny"

    Ever wanted to play a game so bad you just went out and bought it?

    Well, I did. And it didn't end well. It was a disaster right from the start.
