    Trainz Simulator 12 is dedicated to fans of model railways. More attention in the development phase would have avoided some technical problems that prevent the title from being a product for everyone. However, it can give suggestive moments, it might surprise you.

    Everything about this game is bad. Ranging from the **** physics engine to low quality sounds which 90% of the trains share. And what what did the developers think when they added the horrible "Jointed Track" sounds? Expand

    How can this game be called a simulator!?

    There is no physics in the game att all. If you run into a curve too fast the train does not flip
    over or derail and not a single sound is accurate and many trains share the same low quality idle and run sound. Several trains have the same cabin.

    Almost every train have a very annoying and unrealistic jointed-track sound that never disappears. And when accelerating and braking, the sound is really bad. Just searth for trainz on youtube and hear for yourself.

    Do NOT buy this game if you want a "simulator". Buy Railworks┬┤s Train Simulator 2014 instead.

    The worst problem with this isn't the 2003 graphics or that its as interesting as watching paint dry but the fact that every time you want to play you have to let the game rebuild its database files, which takes an hour.

    The same thing happens with the tutorial- click 'play' to watch and nothing will happen for an hour. Come out of the game and do the same thing and you have to wait all over again. Dont be fooled by the 'not responding' message, the game hasn't crashed, it is rebuilding its database files.

    I'm not sure who coded this but I think they need to change their game engine so people who pay retail get a fair stab at playing it.
