I really enjoy bridge simulator games, but this is the worst one that I've played. There is no consistency in how materials behave, the interface is infuriating, and rather than being fun to play, I find it a tedious chore.

Many levels have identical setups; however, a bridge that just worked on one behaves completely differently on the other. The first will have zero stress while at rest and easily handles the traffic while the second will have red on all joints and will fail the instant any traffic touches it. The game shows no reason for this change in behavior. It simply is the way things work.

As for the interface, it is very difficult to edit a bridge. This results in my rebuilding the bridge from scratch each time or just using undo until it removes the part I want removed and beginning again from that point. The reason for this is that I can right-click a piece to remove it, but it doesn't remove the entire section that was added, just a portion of it. If I place down two sections to brace the bridge, I need to right click and remove around 10 different segments to remove those two sections. There is the ability to draw a box around sections to highlight them and them remove them, but many times, the cursor will change to indicate that it is select mode yet will still add new sections, making it difficult to use that tool. Even when the select tool works, it removes too much as it will remove joint placement points for remaining sections, making them unusable.

I tried to like this game, but the flaws show me that this is simply a "us too" bridge simulator and not one made to be a quality and enjoyable game.

This game makes me cry a little inside everytime I see it defying physics or not simulating materials the same way everytime.

This game is fun, but, seriously some bridges are just non sense. When you build a bridge meant for cars you don't expect a 100 ton train to cross it suddenly. The draw bridges are also TERRIBLE. Everytime the bridge "draws" it always breaks somewhere.

Most annoying bridge building simulator.

Levels have random difficulties, mostly the same design, quite boring.

Materials behave oddly and identical set-ups randomly break down.

I really tried to give its chance to the game but all I got in return was increased blood pressure and saltiness.
