“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

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 have to admit that I didn't expect this game to actually be worth the price. It does everything right, World of Subways 3 allows you to experience driving a train in the London Underground. This experience, including the setting up of the trains, is modelled in detail and a lot of fun. You are limited to the London Circle Line, however the full line is a lot of fun to drive. You can also explore each station in first person or third person mode. Minor gripe: avoid using the first person mode, as it can be highly disorienting.

The Pros:
- Detailed simulation
- Explore stations
- Beautiful visuals
- Above and below ground
- Challenging missions

The Cons:
- First person view outside of the train's cab
- Takes a while to figure out the game's logic

What to remember:
- Set up the tail lights at the end of your train.
- You can figure out which way your train is heading by the lights. Look for the traffic management lights at the start of the platform. That is the direction your train is heading.
- Don't forget to hit TAB to hit the deadman's switch.

Who is this game for:
- Fans of train simulators, like Train Simulator 2016. Just think about this as a piece of standalone DLC for Train Simulator.
- Fans of simulation games.

This game is worth it.

An amazingly detailed simulator of the Circle Line on the London Underground, using the C stock. If you want a London Underground simulator, then this is the perfect game for you. I definitely recommend it.

Isn't the Underground creepy? Isn't it? Anyway, I did rather enjoy this. It's stupidly realistic, and I did spend 30 minutes working out how to even start up the train. But once I got going, I really got going. Many miles an hour too fast.

This complete disregard for the rules resulted in an outcome that I definitely didn't expect...

Spoilers: No James Bond leaping out of the way, no 'blind tube mares'.

London Underground simulator offers a great feel of driving a C stock and the stations are well designed and look relistic. Realism/features in the game are superb as it offers announcements of stations and extras for example, "London underground apologises for the delay", vibrations of the train and small touches such as the brake test and the passenger heating and lighting. Overall and good game! Only thing is that it can be very boring as the senery is obviously just a brick tunnel most of the journey.
