“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.

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.

First up: you have to like or at least be interested in railroad games/simulators to appreciate this.

If you do, you'll find this title surprisingly immersive. Although the physics aren't the best (train doesn't appear to be affected by grades at all), and I get some minor clipping issues during rainy weather (to do with not being able to walk/run properly), this is by far probably the best offering from WOS yet and puts you in the seat of driving a subway train in the London Underground.

The fact that most of the cockpit/cab is clickable is a big plus too and setting up a train and running to a tight schedule is very fun indeed. You get a choice of some pre-defined missions with various challenges/situations (you can actually 'see' some of the rail maintenance works going on!!), but you can also drive to your own custom schedule with selectable routes, weather and time. In some of the missions you have to couple trains and switch them around from one end to the other, this involves getting up from your seat in the cab and running around as you frantically set the train(s) up for the next leg of the journey, flipping switches, doing brake tests and ensuring passengers get a smooth, timely journey.

Even with the minor issues, I've found this to be quite addictive, and the experience of the train shuddering and vibrating about on the tracks - not to mention the sound package, makes this a worthwhile sim for the money. The only thing that's missing is some nice DLCs/add-ons/3rd party mods, but even without these, it's a solid offering.

I put 12 hours on it already and I've only owned it for about 24 hours so far!!

Will see how it goes longevity wise, but I'm giving it an 8/10 and I'm eagerly awaiting WOS 4 later this year!!!

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.

I found this simulator to be very well detailed, and a challenge. Found a Utube of the full run of the Circle line using the more modern S-stocks trains ... but the attention to detail along the route, and particularly the stations is absolutely top notch. I have a modest system and manage to run the entire route smoothly with the exception of just two brief spots when it gets a little chunky. Very pleased with this simulator acquisition. A solid 9/10.

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.

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.

Not so much missions but fun anyway. I like the way you can walk around at the platform. You can also leave your train and ride with an another subway as a passenger :D

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.

Rating: 10/10

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.
