About the Game

Catch the bus and let it take you to a detailed, virtual world.

Are you ready to explore a picturesque German city behind the wheel of a realistically modeled, freely accessible bus? Then take a look at “Bus Simulator 2012” by the well-known developer studio TML!

Every technical detail of the original bus has been reproduced true-to-live. Switch on the air-conditioning when your front-shields are steaming up and keep an eye on the speedograph, to stay in schedule – even though you have a lot of missions, you will still need to rest in order to stay fit! Thanks to the digital readouts in the bus, you can monitor your engine’s temperature and the charging level of the cooling liquid as well as the oil and gasoline level.

Organize your route and service more than 450 bus stops. Enjoy the realistic AI of both, pedestrians and traffic, which will also influence your own behavior while driving. Interaction with your passengers is also an important facet of your job: It is up to you to decide which ticket to sell and how to greet your customers – they will react accordingly!

Thanks to TML’s fantastic ability to recreate buses and other vehicles in great detail, you will find this game to be a truly challenging bus-simulation. Discover the open 3D-world with a variety of interesting landmarks and enjoy exploring it in between your shifts. But take care while on the job: Stick to your schedule and the traffic rules!

Creative? Feel free to individualize your vehicles and to share them with the simulation game community.

Will be making this review a bit fatter soon! Just wanted to get my opinion out there and I'll write it out tomorrow :P

Good:
- One of the more "realer" simulators that I've played
- Starting up is great! Everyone I could imagine an actual bus drive would need! Just remember all the numbers or remember to write them down beforehand :P


Bad:
- The controls are complex - Don't know how to reverse - there is no shortcut when looking at the screen thing - makes me want a touch screen monitor :L
- The default steering requires a lot of effort to make sure you don't crash

This Review is Purely my opinion,
This game is based in Germany in 2012 as you, the bus driver, it may be boring for some people who like to rush through games, However i will recommend this game to people who would like to roleplay being a bus driver.
In Bus Simulator 2012 there is no ending to it, as it is a game that has unlimited missions in it. This game is as shown $9.99 & if you buy this game & not like it well it is not the end of the world as it is a reasonably good buget priced game.

There are though the odd couple of bugs & glitches that may force you to restart the game, but they are quite rare & you will often play the game without experiencing any stuff ups.

I would guess that this game appeals to the hardcore simualator gamers as it is in depth and complex, very detailed.

However, the tutorial is lacking quite a bit, or I'm daft, in either case it took me ages to get the frigging bus out of the garage.
Trying to use my Wheel along with the game was a drag since there ain't no sensitivity adjustment so that has to be set in windows.

If you are going to play this, I'd recommend watching a youtube tutorial beforehand.

If you get past the initial stage I'd guess that it has value, on the simulator department, but make no mistake, this ain't no Euro Truck Simulator 2, which I found was very easy to get into and had a good level of simulator vs intuitive gameplay.

My 2 cents.
