Bus Simulator 16. Transport your passengers to their destinations across five authentic city districts safely and on time. Drive a two-door, three-door, or a true-to-life articulated bus through commuter traffic at rush hour, watch out for emergency vehicles, and take detours around construction sites. Make sure that you are always aware of your surroundings or you will get into trouble for accidents and traffic violations!

Apart from driving you will also have to maintain order on the inside of your bus. Calm upset passengers, repair stuck doors, sell the correct tickets, and extend the ramp for wheelchair users in a timely manner. You will have to be efficient if you want to stick to your schedule and increase your reputation in the city, earn the trust of your passengers and most importantly make lots of money! The better your reputation, the larger the contracts you will be able to secure, and the more buses will be available to your company in the shop. Unlock additional districts of the city and carefully plan routes for bus drivers in your employ, who you can hire through the ingame job exchange.

As you grow more and more successful, you will also be able to acquire advertising banners for your buses, which will bring in some additional funds. If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your buses, you can paint and decorate them with unlockable decals, ensuring that your passengers will reach their destinations in the coolest way possible.

The Bus Simulator 16 is a very interesting Game, but it also has some Quirks and would tolerate Improvements in some Places. Nevertheless, the Simulator is fun, The Economic System works. Full Review below, Video below: https://youtu.be/MVy6IbMa6OQ Pro/Kontra: + Many Bus models (fictitious and original licensed By MAN) + Good economic System + multiplayer + Mod-Support (including Steam workshop-even if that's a bit awkward for Modders) + Appendight effect through global Leaderboard + Incidents such as door blockages, temperature adjustments and Dialogues bring Variety to the Game + Adhesives and color Adjustments very well + world freely explored by 1St-person view-No other AI cast-Mutliplayer Unfortunately not so that you can see other Players on the Map-Extremely performance-giving, you need a pretty good PC-Part not so detalented (Cockpit)-Events on the Bus repeat themselves quickly-steering the Bus is good, but not yet Optimal (Keyboard) In Summary, the bus simulator 16 has Certainly charms. For passionate OMSI players, it is probably not satisfactory because the high Level Of Detail is lacking while driving. For all bus simulator fans who have always wanted an Economic System in such a Game and who also have a good PC, it is definitely worth watching this Game. Because the Economic System, in particular, has succeeded well. You feel Like continuing to play.

For Simulation Fans, Bus Simulator 16 finally comes up with New "Food." At least that's how you think of it as a Fan of serious Simulation. Eurotruck Simulator 2 and Agricultural Simulator 2015. What the Stillalive Studios "Deliver" here is nice Addiction, but then not properly implemented. They have built a "big" City and divided it into different Neighborhoods. You have to unlock gradually by completing different Missions in Single Player. That is the Key Word. The Game also has a Multiplayer regarding Co-op Mode!! But no, that's not right either. You only split up the Missions here. Better said, you'll drive different Routes for the other Player or handle Missions. This means still driving alone in the City. So the Developers should really think again about talking about MP ... Technically, the Game is not the yellow from the Egg either. Very high Requirements for a let's say it nicely put, Graphic from 2005. I know Graphics is not everything, I see that way. But Why these Requirements for the PC? As I see, the Game was ticketed with the Unity Engine. Although It is not State of art, it offers more Possibilities and can be optimized very well. The Developers are probably still a bit inexperienced. The Ki Doesn't react as it should either. Sometimes she drives in one, then brakes from 50 to 0 in 2 sec (Crash). Then there is a long Traffic jam because the Ki does not want to get around the Intersection, which of course messes up the Schedule. All very annoying, and that wasn't all ... Conclusion: Who has a good Computer And can see across graphic Weaknesses. Do not disturb the Technical defects and is also very Resistant to fruit. You can "do" to this Game. For anyone else who likes to take the Bus I recommend OMSI 2 (The Bus Simulator 2
