Train Sim World: West Somerset Railway - Official Launch Trailer
Aug 1, 2018I’ll be committed to Train Sim World for quite some time, I suspect. Give me some DLC train routes through Asia (especially Japan), and I’ll be all the happier. Give me one or two routes of the Sydney network and I’ll buy them just to gloat to Sydney Trains that it is possible to deliver passengers to their stops without a three hour delay. I’m oddly proud of my virtual train driving skills.
Jul 24, 2018Games like Train Sim World will always benefit from a greater array of content: more trains, more routes, and more services. That said, learning how each of the trains in this title work and mastering the three main disciplines will take you hours at a time, and while it’s very much an acquired taste, we derived a mixture of satisfaction and relaxation from our new role as a railway operator.
Sep 15, 2018Train Sim World can be as unexpectedly compelling as it is powerfully soothing. It’s just a shame it lacks some of the polish to make the eccentric gem it is something truly brilliant. Nevertheless, it let us throw about the word ‘pantograph’ with haughty delight.
Aug 1, 2018Train Sim World is relaxed effort that, despite the visual inadequacies and technical issues, proves enjoyable for fans and newcomers. There's a fairly robust package with a decent variety of trains and scenarios. Above all, anyone curious about rail simulators would get what they need out of this. The controls are consistent and operating a unit feels tactile and methodical. The adherence to schedules and protocol give the game a nice, routine feel but you never feel pressured by it.
Playstation Official Magazine UKAug 23, 2018Perversely, there is a great joy to Train Sim World once you get past all the niggles, chugging along at a clean 125mph, the world zipping past you as you keep an eye on your next stop, easing the throttle, lightly touching the brakes. The engines themselves are on point, but it’s a bit lacking in reason to drive them. [Issue#153, p.89]
Jul 24, 2018When all is said and done, the handful of people sitting in the middle of the Venn diagram marked “doesn’t own a PC” and “wants a hardcore train simulation” still deserve a game that isn’t buggy, runs well, respects their time as a user, and one that provides more for their money than this one does.

Affected game: Train Sim World PS4
Edition: Digital deluxe edition
The graphics are exceptionally well made and that makes the game even more realistic and fun to play.
There is another point to improve, namely: some buttons and lights don't look perfect (sometimes they are sort of octagonal), but those are small details.
Comparison with other games
I have often played similar games including: Trainz 2.
TSW really has a better engine and also better quality (image AND sound) and you also have more routes available in the base game of TSW than in Trainz 2.
I love Simulator games a lot and so this game won't get bored like most people.
Many people think that Simulator games are boring because it is the same thing that you have to do every time. In fact you always do something different, one time you get to know new areas and the other time you use it to gain new knowledge. You can apply that acquired knowledge in real life again, unlike Fortnite.
UI (User Interface) -
The UI is something that could be improved;
The pause menu sometimes reacts a bit slow and other times you skip a large number of selections! Furthermore, everything is of course just fine.
The game concept is fun & realistic. You can unlock the doors with buttons and you get a time for when you are expected at the next station.

You. need to know that going in, but it should be obvious enough. The game runs great on PS4. It looks great, and for me, I am 36 years old, the game is a fun relaxing game. You definitely need to buy the DLC because there are only three different regions with about 10 missions in each one. There is a free play scenario where you get to choose what route you want to do, the time of the day, the weather, and so on. The game isn't perfect. Some of the outside textures need work, but for the most part, it looks really good. The trains is where all the detail is, they are phenomenal!… Expand

Por eso no le puedo poner más de un 7, tiene muchos fallos, incongruencias o momentos en los que el juego cae en errores que no sabes que hacer o los comandos simplemente no responden. Los gráficos están bien y no mucho más, aceptable, aunque el paisaje se queda un poco corto... No hay música en los viajes, un punto negativo, ni si quiera música básica de fondo. La sensación de ir sobre el tren es buena, se siente bien la velocidad y poder moverse por el escenario, bajarse del tren o recorrerlo por dentro es un punto a favor, también algún que otro coleccionable que hay en los mapas. Si te gustan los simuladores en general se le puede dar un oportunidad, aunque hay que conseguirlo a buen precio, más de 15 dólares no lo vale, la excesiva cantidad de DLC es otro punto en contra, el juego base contiene varias rutas y locomotoras pero tampoco tantas, los DLC se sienten como quitados del juego principal solo para cobrar más, algo muy común estos días....… Expand
