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!

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

I clipped through the bus doors and the bus itself, and then fell through the world.

10 / 10, true bus driving experience.

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 "real" 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 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
