“World of Subways - Volume 3 hebt sich deutlich von seiner Konkurrenz ab und führt derzeit die Simulationen an.”

“World of Subways is a lovingly realistic recreation of the Circle Line of the London Underground, with the amount of detail that has gone into both the stations, and the trains, it sets the bar of train simulators, and is definitely one for the true hardcore sim crowd. Whilst the player models are not as fantastic as you might want, and there are a few small issues here and there, it is one of the best simulators out so far this year 4/5.”

About This Game

World of Subways" is our series of the most interesting Subway and Underground routes of the world for the PC. After the releases of New York and Berlin we are now proud to introduce Vol.3 - London Underground. This simulation covers the entire Circle Line in its current operational service which includes the new section to Hammersmith. This line offers a length of 27km with 35 stations, many hours of fun and interesting missions

The Circle Line is an underground service of the London Underground circling the center of London. It was first described as such in 1949 and already appeared on the 1947 Underground Map. It had not been built as a separate line, but was merged from different sections of the Metropolitan Line and the District Line. Only two short sections of this line are solely used by the Circle line. These sections are the connecting curves between the stations of High Street Kensington and Gloucester Road and between Aldgate and Tower Hill.

Features


  • 3D - Cockpit with rotatable camera
  • Original virtual reproductions of 35 stations on the Circle Line
  • Free movement in the train and at the stations (accomplished for the first time ever!)
  • More realistic AI trains, dynamic passengers on the platforms
  • Superb graphics, reflecting headlights, night effects
  • Realistic announcements recorded exclusively by the original speaker

Tube map


Physics


The physics have been developed based on real values, such as those used in training simulators. The driving and braking characteristics of the trains are reproduced faithfully and reflect the feeling to actually controlling a train of the London Underground.

Graphics


Compared to the first two products in this series, Vol. 3 uses a new 3D engine. The simulator is now based on the Vision Engine Trinigy, which made it possible to substantially improve lighting and 3D effects. At the same time the stability and performance of the 3D engine has been improved.

Rediculiously detailed simulator. A lot more fun then driving your average train sim I found. Although it is lacking in some simple things I hope they will patch, such as the option for short cut keys for all the cab buttons, including announcements, annoying having to click through a few views just to announce stand clear of the doors.

Also why is there no in game map? Just a tube map, with the position of your train overlayed, and possibley your selected route, it would help people who don't live in London understand where they are going immensely!

Those two easy things added, I would say it could be the best train sim yet.

World of Subways 3 is an amazing and accurate simulation of what happens in the world of the London Underground. The graphics used in this game are quite realistic and it represents how the Underground looks like in real life. I recommend this game to any person who likes trains and simulators.

A really stunning and immersive simulator, a million miles away from 'Bus and Cable Car Simulator'. The graphics are gorgeous, the sounds are convincing and the driving experience itself is realistic.

I love how there are other AI trains running in the network which you can (and sometimes need to) board. I love how passengers board and disembark trains, and how station announcements call just like in real life.

And I also love how well it runs on my computer. Other TML games (particularly Bus and Cable Car) run pretty poorly. The engine has clearly been optimized.

However - it does need a good polish. Some negative points:

• You cannot move if the camera cuts into your avatar
• 'THAT' stepping/walking sound
• Depth-of-field, even when turned off
• The missions need to be better explained - careful consultation of a tube map sometimes isn't enough. A few times I've set off in the wrong direction

But most importantly: Gameplay will be instantly cut for failing to set up your train correctly, for running red lights, for going even a LITTLE over the limit, for accidently opening doors on a service run, etc. Having to go through the mission ALL OVER AGAIN cause you accidently pressed F5 is a ballache.

However, these are small points, and so long as you drive to the book on missions, they will certainly not spoil your experience.

9/10 overall.

I like this game very much indeed - but it would also be great to have a career mode included, whereby you could start off as a trainee driver and thereafter get achievement points for mileage and high scores. You could then be promoted to qualified - skilled - expert - master - and finally veteran driver. These stats could be displayed on a single screen, with appropriate graphics included. In the meanwhile, despite a few bugs, I give this game 10/10.

Really good game! But remember to check your PC can run it as it is quite a demanding game. Other than that 10/10!

This game is superb if you want to get in and drive a London Underground Train, There are some Downsides to this game, The Short routes do not have the correct ending Announcement like 'This train terminates at:' It will only say Hammersmith or Edgware Road. You cannot go left right or back, You can only go forward and using the mouse, This is very annoying, And also there are a ton of Glitches which put players off, In the whole, I Recommend this game.

The game World of Subways 3 – London Underground Circle Line is definitely a "must" for train/subway simulator fans.
The game has great graphics and a great level of details, either in train itself or in the station.
The realism of the game is great, making the player prepare each journey with attention. Turning on tail lights, cab lights, ventilation, passenger heat and light, adjusting the correct route to be displayed, programming the voice announcer, are just of few things to be done before leaving the first station.

The only setback of the game (a minor one), are the cameras and player movement.
The camera control is just a little weird, but nothing that you can't get used to.
Also, if you change the the key bindings in the setting menu, the tutorial will use the default ones to explain how to play the game.

Other than this few thing, the game is great.

Highly detailed simulation of the London Underground Circle Line, I absolutely love it. This has to be TML Studios' best game.

The sounds are really good and include announcement voices on-board the train and at stations. Train sounds are also very nice, I can't find a fault with them.

Graphics are great, although there is some blurring in the distance, but this doesn't matter so much considering you're usually in a tunnel, or watching the track and signals in front of you anyway.

Simulation is top notch and very realistic. You can actually get out of the train and walk about the stations. My only fault with this is that the first person camera has this weird view bob and head movement attached to it, although there is 3rd person. It is also very strict, so if you're not looking to play properly then the game will just end itself if you do something wrong.

If you do get the game, make sure to play the 1st mission which shows you how to drive and how it all works, but beware of red lights and speed limits!

The non-driving controls are a bit awkward. Of course you'll get the occasional passenger that seems to want to walk into the walls of the train or sit in midair. However, this is the most realistic train simulator yet. Making you go on strict time schedules, and put teaches you the proper way to set up the train. So overall, needs a bit of cleaning up, but this is worth trying.

Recommend this to everyone who likes train simulations. Not the perfect game e.g. as the controls are a bit fiddly and it is lacking feedback for the player. Still very enjoyable.

graphics are not as good as dtg product,but still o.k.in this sim there is no hud,so you have to drive the train.its not that hard.you can bring up screens that show destinations next signal,distances and time.thats a hud i hear you say.yes but there is no levers to accelerate or brake or forward reverse.you dont have to have those screens displayed.the other thing about this sim is the ability to walk through the train,opening and closing doors as you go through.walking along the platform and if you want explore the station.the camera is behind your character as you go.ive just had a quick go but it seems the buttons etc work you can programme the onboard computer,i havent done this yet only used it for announcments.you have control over everything from air con to wipers.if its raining and dont turn on aircon the windows fog up.long term well it is a subway going in circles but a big subway.i would recommend it for train simmers to put along side their existing collections.

Great game beautiful graphics but needs a lot of work.

Victoria to Edgeware road scenario setup places the train too far back making the rear cab inaccessible. Started walking to the front of the train and got stuck on a passenger and had to stop the scenario before it even started. Hopefully a patch wil fix these issues in the future.

This game is amazing! I have never been to london or been on their underground, but this is probally the best simulator i have seen and defenitly the best train sim i have seen. It will use all your concentration to keep the scedual and keep the speed limit. i strongly recomend this game to anyone who likes simulators or train simulators or for people just looking for something dirrfrint. the job of getting your passengers to their destination is waiting, will you answer their call?

An alright game, but way too expensive for only the circle line! Get the game if it is on sale and you randomly want to get a train simulator! :D

Realistic and a beautiful game in the terms of driving the actual train however I am not so keen on the NPC modeling however I guess with this game being quite old I think it is something I will have to live with. This game takes you into the seat of one of the cliche grumpy sodded London Underground drivers, however I think after playing this I realise why the cliche came about with the amount of buttons there are to deal with!!!

This is a very realistic game, probably the most realistic train game out there. If you like trains or if you are British or one of those wierd people who get aroused by trains then buy this game.
