Bus Simulator 21 is for everyone. Being able to cater to your playstyle from the most basic of set ups to as realistic as they can make it, the game gets its hooks in you after a few hours. I always wanted to run one more route before getting up from a play session. The vehicle AI leaves something to be desired, but we can all think of a few drivers that give us road rage.
Bus Simulator 21 certainly kicks things into high gear above its predecessor with a lot of appreciated quality-of-life improvements. But, it's brought down by an awkward driving system, UI clutter, AI clunkiness, and apparent optimization issues. Yet, it remains a solid new product in the active driving sim genre.
Attention to Detail
Umbrella doesn't open when it rains
Can't change steering wheel sensitivity
Not enough weather options
Stressful yet relaxing, realistic yet laughably stiff at times – Bus Simulator 21 is full of contradictions some will appreciate and others won’t understand. It succeeds in giving you a faithful recreation of what it’s like to drive around a bus all day and all the ups and downs that come with the job. It also keeps things as safe as possible causing it to be as mundane as, well, driving a bus all day.
Bus Simulator 21 turned out to be a lot better than I was anticipating. It has a ton of the typical shortcomings you see in simulator-type games, but it also gets a lot right. The maps are large, pretty, and varied. Busses handle well and feel weighty when making corners. And the multiplayer is genuinely fantastic. If other sims take note of what Bus Simulator 21 is doing in regards to cooperative modes, this might be a genre I start to pay much more mind to.
A relatively successful, fun and complex bus driver simulator is marred by some often unnecessary bugs. I firmly believe that the developers will eventually manage to remove a large part of them through updates. Overall, though, I'm at peace with the game, and in a discount sale I probably wouldn't hesitate to buy it for long. The full review is on my gaming site here: ****/recenze/bus-simulator-21-recenze/
To jest jakiś żart, jedyne zmiany w tej nowej części to nowe autobusy, nowa mapa itd. Zmian dużo nie jest. Sterowanie autobusami stało się bardziej "kreskówkowe" niż w BS18. Jest więcej autobusów to na plus, na dodatek mamy nową mape. Odswieżona, stara mapa z BS18 i nowa w USA. Grafika się nie zmieniła, a gra posiada jeszcze więcej bugów niż w BS18. Twórcy zamiast wydawać DLC żeby wyciągnać jak najwięcej hajsu z graczy to niech lepiej poprawią denerwujące błędy. Poprzednia część (Bus Simulator 18) jest lepsza. Na dodatek gra jest droższa.
Summary Experience the daily life of a bus driver in two open world cities either in the USA or Europe. Drive up to 30 licensed buses by international manufacturers, including a double-decker and e-buses. Take your passengers to their destinations safely and on time - either in single- or multiplayer mode.
