    I really enjoyed this game, mainly because it is one of those games that excels in its wonderful simplicity, from the gameplay right through to its controls. The more you play the game and the further you progress, the more you get out of it. I found myself wanting to come back and play it again – which is surely the mark of a great title? In the case of TransOcean 2, it describes those sentiments perfectly.

    TransOcean 2: Rivals is a decent game that is having some trouble leaving the starting blocks.

    Some improvements and gameplay changes make Rivals an enjoyable experience, but not as engaging and revolutionary as the original game. [07/2016, p.54]

    Overall then TransOcean 2 is a distinctly average game. It’s not standout in its genre nor is it a weak link and at its purest it’s a solid economic simulator if a touch lightweight.

    This sequel adds new content such as boats and game modes compared to its previous installment. However, it has some issues that can be fixed with some upgrades.

    The game tends to be repetitive, you need to pause it very often to be able to meet the goals.

The pause button is rather idiotic, as you have to pres 2 times space to pause it. it needs polishing, and a patch is really needed to fix the multitude of issues it has. Not a bad game, but you'll get bored of it a tad quicker by the 3rd or 4th mission... Expand

    My expectations were ruined after 5 min playing this game. The concept is OK, the good business sim in shipping industry. The game, honestly, could be incredible, with all that management, business, building stuff.

    But in fact we have such a horrible game. The main feature of the game is time rush - you can't pause the game. The sub-menus with information are useless. The game design, music, sounds, pathetic story mode, AI, micromanagement, controls... every aspect of the game is awful.
    Moreover, i bet that this game will be lagging as hell on your Core i3 notebooks, with 10 fps.

    That's great example how to ruin the good concept and make a horrible game.
