    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.

    Thanks to authenticity of its physics engine, appealing visuals, and fairly glitchless drivers’ AI, Bus Simulator 18 pretty much achieves what it was supposed to: relaxation through casual driving. [08/2018, p.73]

    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 one of the best bus simulations on the market, but lacks content.

    If you’re already a fan of vehicle simulation games, you’ll likely still get a kick out of this one, despite its flaws.

    Despite all of the extra customization, RPG elements and other details, Bus Simulator 18 still gets to be boring after a few hours.

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 ^^ Expand

    Despite the fact that this game has been available for Steam players on PC since last year and only came on the the console platform, the gameDespite the fact that this game has been available for Steam players on PC since last year and only came on the the console platform, the game crashes all the time. You can count yourself lucky if you get more than an hour of game time on the game. It is obvious that the developers of this game rushed the game and the updates and never even tested them. To start with at the beginning of the game it is Okay, but once you reach level 20 that is where you run into problems. I will edit this review if they ever fix the game. Expand
