About This Game

Off to the next round! Experience a new omnibus simulator with OMSI 2 and start discovering Spandau while driving the omnibus. OMSI 2 is the successor of the well-known and awarded omnibus simulator "OMSI - The Bus Simulator". OMSI 2 not only offers the routes and buses you already know from OMSI, but adds lots of exciting new features. In OMSI 2 you can drive the first ever articulated bus in the OMSI history, the MAN NG272. Explore the new omnibus line 5 covering a total distance of 12 km from the subway station Ruhleben to the psychiatric clinic Spandau. Thanks to the newly added chronology function you´ll not only be able to drive through Spandau in 1986, but also to relive the changes taking place in Spandau between 1986 and 1994.

Enjoy the charm of the 80s and 90s and find out how the period after the fall of the Berlin Wall was. And this all at wheel of a double-decker or articulated bus.

New features in OMSI 2:

  • The articulated bus MAN NG272 with the exact physical and visual recreation of the joint kinematics as well as corresponding sounds and systems (bending protection).
  • The MAN NL202 as well as reworked and added models of the known types SD200 and SD202 (more years of production, emergency door openers, destination boards, sound variations depending on vehicle number).
  • The Spandau omnibus line 5 from the subway station Ruhleben to the psychiatric clinic Spandau covering a total distance of 12 km, several new buildings, a squeezed timetable and a tight 5 minute rhythm with various bus termini and assignments for diverse and long lasting driving pleasure.
  • Replication of original timetables and tour plans for omnibus lines 5 and 92.
  • Chronology function: Relive the change taking place in Spandau between 1986 and 1994! OMSI 2 now replicates the exciting years following the German reunification and all the innovations and route expansions (line 137 to Falkensee) that came along with it. This function also allows temporary changes to maps or routes caused by construction sites or special buses.
  • Advanced and improved AI traffic (better road- and steering behaviour, railway- and subway traffic)
  • System damage model including different malfunctions which take time to fix
  • OMSI 2 supports a world coordinate system so it is possible to import a DEM (Digital Elevation Model) with the help of a DLL you can even program yourself.
  • Animated real vertical profile on the Spandau map
  • New script functions such as full matrix view, advanced access to system variables.
  • New editor functions: automatic import of aerial imagery, terrain adapts to run of the road, improved spline connection algorithm, rotation of objects around all axes. Intersections can easily be equipped with individual vertical profiles.
  • Saving optimized loading of maps which allows considerably larger maps

Additional features:

  • The classic versions of the MAN double-decker buses SD200 and SD202 are included
  • Realistic and intelligent traffic and detailed landscape
  • Realistic and controllable weather and seasonal effects
  • Realistic day and night effects
  • Many animations and animated objects
  • Fully functional IBIS (integrated on-board information system)
  • Four different views: driver sight, passenger sight, exterior view or free view
  • Script engine to influence the handling characteristics and functions of the bus
  • Easy to use, map-based track editorInsert your own vehicles
  • Compatible with TrackIR 5

I like the game, I think it's the best bus simulator, but it's so full of glitches and bugs. It's too expensive and besides the DLCs are also very expensive.

I like it but I can't recommend it. It's just not worth the high pricetag.

OMSI 2 is a good game but only if you know how to use it properly. I found it very hard to set up the bus and for a while I didn't know how to do any routes. The game is quite glitchy and sometimes doesn't work porperly. But when it does work it is a great game! I would only recommend it to people who either are already familiar with how to set up buses or don't mind spending alot of time researching how it works. But all in all, when it works it's a great game!

As a player of many simulation games, I can say hands-down that this is the best simulation game I have ever owned. No game have I ever been as engrossed into as this one. So let's take a look at what makes this game such a fantastic experience.

OMSI 2 was developed by two German guys as the sequel to the very-popular OMSI. OMSI 2 is the only game in the series that was released on Steam, and because of that it has become the definitive version over the years.

The driving experience itself is fantastic - it's very hard for simulators to capture the feeling that you're actually controlling a vehicle, but with the sound, weight and turning, OMSI 2 does feel like driving a bus. The most incredible part of this game is the sound, which could not be any better than it already is. Sound is an essential part of a game, especially in a driving simulator. Every sound you can hear is from real life - from the motor noise of each different bus, to the surrounding AI traffic, to simple sound effects - it's all taken from real life and implemented perfectly into OMSI. Each bus is modeled from real life, and everything you can see is clickable and has its own function.

With a game as open-ended as OMSI 2, you'd expect an active modding community, and fortunately there's plenty of it. Aside from the occasional payware DLC on Steam, which ranges from maps to individual vehicles, modders are constantly developing new buses and maps for you to download and play for free.

Every game has its downsides, however, and OMSI 2 is no exception. To put it lightly, the game is quite poorly optimized. When it first launched back in 2013, it was barely playable, with crashes and bugs galore. It has since been patched many times and thankfully runs much better than before, but it is still prone to random freezing and crashing. Some maps, such as Projekt Gladbeck, are much more poorly optimized than other maps, like Berlin X10 or Hamburg.

In conclusion, OMSI 2 is one of the very best simulators you can get, if you ask me. Don't let the optimization issues prevent you from buying this game. I've barely scratched the surface on what this simulator has to offer, because you just have to play OMSI 2 to really know what the driving experience is like. And with many payware maps available (with more to come, including London) and countless bus & map mods, OMSI 2 will never fail to suck you in.

OMSI 2 is essentially the bus counterpart of ARMA 3.
It's the damn holy grail of all bus simulators out there on offer, and gets things right, down to every little component.
I could have put that $34.99 AUD towards a shirt, groceries or schnitzel lunch at the local RSL, but I put it towards this, and it's great. I don't regret my investment.

9/10 lunch will have to wait

This game is very realistic, the bus feels very weighty and real. However the graphics are terrible in some areas and the AI is known to do really dumb things. I would enjoy it more if it didn't cost $43.00.

This is not a game; it is a simulator in the purest sense. Unlike Euro Truck Simulator 2 and similar, there is no aspect of gameplay at all.

As such, if you don't really, really want to drive a bus, then I can't reccommend OMSI for you.

On the other hand, if, like me, buses are your thing, then this is the best - no two ways about it. The driving physics are excellent, the sounds are just superb, every individual switch in the cab works and attention to detail has been layered upon the vehicles you'll drive. The defualt maps are OK, and the default buses are excellent - but this simulator is all about the mods. There are dozens upon dozens of amazing freeware buses and maps out there, and a few excellent officially endorsed payware items (I highly reccomend the O305 and Three Generations bus packs).

In case none of the maps available meet your taste, the game includes a map editor which allows you absolute freedom to build your own maps, even if the controls take a little getting used to and the editor itself is really well hidden (google how to run it). With a little patience, you can learn to create assets for the game without too much difficulty in Blender and Sketchup, or, in my case, Gmax, via a very circuitous import route.

There are limitations - the game only really supports right-hand traffic, for instance. There are left-traffic routes and buses available, but there are issues with passengers walking through the bus. You'd also better get used to selling tickets in German.

There are flaws as well - you need a fast processor to run this game at all (multiple cores don't help), and an SSD, while not absolutely necessary, will significantly boost performance, as the game is constantly loading items as they come within range. Back when it was released, the game was not stable at all. This seems to be fixed for most people now, but you should be aware of it nonetheless. The physics can be jumpy occasionally, and I've had a few weird bugs like the back end of an articulated bus falling off. This kind of thing has been few and far between for me, though the game becomes less stable the more mods you have (clean up the ones you aren't using). Play with the settings until you get something that seems to be stable.

All in all, if you like buses, this is simply a must-have. Yes, there are bugs, but they're outweighed by the sounds, the driving physics, the wholly interactive dashboards and the endless customization.

Anyone who wants a bus simulator, this is pretty much your only choice. As much as I love the game, there just isn't enough to it. This considering it's hard enough just to put out 35 bucks for a bus simulator, Omsi 2 makes you pay an additional $20 for any DLC. And believe me you NEED that DLC. Plus downloading and setting up free maps takes about as long as a train ride from New York to Miami. I recommend his game, but at a little disappointed standpoint. If you look at my other reviews, I'm usually very excited about games. This one yes, but not that much.
