    The new routes provide a wide range of challenges and the new trains, particularly the ICE T, will please many train fans. Load times are long, so if you have a SSD install it on there.

    It's a standard update with better graphics ad an academy for newcomers but few improvements.

    A simulator built with an excellent accessibility and all the trappings, ready to offer realism and rewarding challenges to all those fans who will be willing to spend a fortune to buy the infinite plethora of DLCs that represents the only barrier to thousands of miles of fun.

    Train Simulator 2015 was an interesting experience. It reignited a childhood spark for a brief amount of time, as well as brought into context that while the life on the rails is simple in movement it is not simply pushing the throttle forward and waiting.

    Ok so I'm going to jump straight on the bandwagon of the hater brigade for this one.

    Graphically, I guess it's okay, but the controls, even the expert controls, are much easier to work around.
    There is that going for it. It's simple HUD is exactly that, simple. Expert controls should be a blast even for beginners with this one.
    The one thing I distinctly do not like about this one is the awareness alarm. At regular intervals, having to press a certain combination of keys to tell the computer you are still there, still know what's going on and still paying attention to the signals, the speed and the conditions the train is being controlled in is nothing short of immensely annoying. Yes, you can turn this off, but no, it's not immediately obvious when you HAVE turned it off. It's very limited in content, you just get a bare bones set-up, couple of trains, couple of tracks, a heap of scenarios for each of the tracks, which doesn't really add to the variety for me. It got a hefty slating on Steam for not being as good as the predecessors and despite having the delightful Sean Bean of Sharpe's fame (don't tell me he's always going to be more popular for GoT it just won't fly with me) doing the narrating for the intro video, it doesn't really do anything significant to improve the experience.

    It's a half decent attempt, but it's lack of content out of the box makes it as contemptible as the ultimate insult of Sims 4. All told, it is quite like Sims 4 in that you would need to buy a sizeable chunk of content to make it worth getting in the first place, and that's just a bit more than annoying.

    I think 5 out of 10 is lenient on this one.

    The missus says "It's borked, the end."

    Maybe I should just leave this **** to her instead.

    how long does it take for dev to listen to players opinions and delivers good on ever rising expectation?
    3-4 years or a decade!!!!

    this does not apply to only this game but also to entire gaming industry
    people love their chosen franchise and expect something new and exciting in next a few years but rarely got what they wanted
    devs tend to use same stuffs until people (and fans) get tired of their products and leave their fandom
    since 2012, this game has played same and numerous DLC get train simmer hope down
    with no new mechanic to get excited about, the series feels like its moving back and waiting for people to get sick of it and throw up

    Although it has occasional highlights, this game is really let down by sloppy execution and a very serious lack of attention to detail. SureAlthough it has occasional highlights, this game is really let down by sloppy execution and a very serious lack of attention to detail. Sure its fun to drive a train around but if you are forking out £25 for a route it should have mountains of content and not be full of bugs and errors. Expand

    Nachdem der Hersteller immer wieder Fehler in seinen Produkten hat, die nicht korrigiert werden, kann ich nur sagen ich kaufe nichts mehr..Nachdem der Hersteller immer wieder Fehler in seinen Produkten hat, die nicht korrigiert werden, kann ich nur sagen ich kaufe nichts mehr..

    Wir sollten eine Fehlerliste erstellen. Die zahlreichen Fehler / Mistakes wurden bis heute nicht korrigiert!

    No Mistakes will be fixt by DTG!

    Antwort war: Unsere Arbeit wird sehr geschätzt und wir in zukünftigen Produkten mit einfließen. Eine Korrektur der Fehler in den genannten Produkten ist aber nicht angedacht.
