About This 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!

I am an avid player of Simulation games, paticuarly Bus Simulators and for me this game just didn't hit the right spots, the graphics in themselves were very basic even when they were placed on High and the overall mechanics of the game were rather poor aswell, with the turning sending you 180 degrees into the nearest collidable object.

This game does contain some fun!!

However. I would not reccomend this game to expert Simulation players.

This is a pretty good game, It has some down sides to it though, graphics could use a little worrk and the physics are the usual german simulator ones. Unlike OMSI You can't really push many buttons, but people do get on the bus! There are only 2 busses in this game a normal city bus and a bendy bus. I recomend this game for people who like casual simulators and arent looking for the ARMA of bus simulators. 4/5

Dispite the game being glitchy beyond reason and having NPC issues, I found this game to be enjoyable while being realistic at the same time. I would recommend to another.

Too many bugs in this game; I cannot finish a single route without the change machine glitching. This game was made in a hurry in my opinion. Do not buy this game, it is not worth the money.

Laggy for my laptop, and feels like there's too much work to be done. I never got to get past the Route Number because there really was none. The lag just feuled the fire.

Probably fun for some people, but playing it I think it would be easier to get and drive a real bus. Complicated controls for which you'd need a special joypad or wheel for.

Not intuitive at all.
