There’s not a lot to it but what there is can be a pleasant distraction from every day life for a while… even if it does simulate a form of every day life for some people. If you like simulation style games you will most likely find enjoyment in this one… if not then this might be worth giving a miss. For me it was another nice easy going title to add to my collection… now if you don’t mind I’m going to switch the radio to easy listening and raise the ramp and head off.
Easily one of the best "sims" I've played in a while. By taking what makes games like Euro Truck and Farm Simulator so popular and applying it to the core ideas of ownership and operating a city-wide bus system, Stillalive has made a really admirable game. It's got a lot of depth, soul, and heart poured into it, even if it's rough around the edges in the way of bugs and polish issues.
Bus Simulator 18, at its core, is a good simulator game with a whole lot of soul. It brings a lot of playability options to the table, whether you want to just drive a bus or manage the whole company. The driving is complex enough to keep the player involved, and the economic systems provide a respite for players tired of being behind the wheel. However, the game is hurt by some frustrating bugs and sub-par traffic systems.
Bus Simulator 18 is not a game changer and to be honest, it’s not the most rewarding experience I’ve ever had in front of my PC. Still, it has solid driving mechanics, some detailed buses, and a gameplay loop that is strangely relaxing.
I enjoyed this game very much. The reason there are a lot of bag reviews is because the game was a lot buggier, but everything is much better now. For a bus simulator, there is enough to do, with even a career mode (which is way too easy) and lots of customization options. The views can be stunning, as long as you don't look too closely, and the controls are very easy and beginner-friendly. The AI needs to be fixed, but that will never happen. Overall I can see why this game has such a low rating, but after putting 30 hours into it I can say its fun to play over and over, and you can always try new routes and conditions to make the game different.
Gra jest o wiele lepsza od poprzednika, ale dalej posiada błędy, a większość jest denerwujących lub utrudniających gre. Pewnego razu, gdy pasażer wysiadł to wszedł w mój autobus i straciłem hajs (walute w grze) za to że "potrąciłem pasażera". W grze jest głupie AI pasażerów i samochodów. Wsparcie workshopa to jest ogromny plus, ale mapa jest tylko jedna. W grze autobusy są ładniejsze, ale jest ich strasznie mało. Na najwyższych ustawieniach Grafika wygląda okej, ale na najniższych gra mi przypomina czasy gier PS2. Gra czasami lubi zcrashować, co mnie denerwuje. Grze stawiam 7/10. Pozdrawiam.
Great game. But the animations are not that good. Meh. There's some disturbing, annoying bugs and glitches. But it is so fun to play it with g series wheel. I played it with g29 and it was fun. Buy it if its on a discount.
They made literally nothing useful again... They copied Bus Simulator 16 added small amount of crap content and released it as new game. They are just grinding money with this 2 crap games. I hope they create something useful and save their company names. Oh sorry, I forget max 4 player multiplayer mode. They probably will release new dlc for 16 player multiplayer mode ^^
There are many things in this game that are annoying:
-Passengers need up to two minutes to enter your Bus, even if it has five doors
-They constantly complain about no passenger light, up to 42 times in 40 minutes on a sunny day
-Even when nobody requests a stop and no one is at the bus station you get minus points if you don't make a stop
-NPC cars waiting much to long at the traffic lights
-Annoying conversations between the passengers, seriously are they drugged?
Don't buy this game if you wan't a serious bus simulation!
