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!

A real bus simulator. And one that's serious. I'm almost flipped through what the Game wanted from me before I even got the Bus going. A Key Assignment Like a Simulator for ne Boing 747. The Graphics are now a bit dusted in, but if you like to ride a bus through a simulated City in your Spare Time and coach simulated Passengers around, this probably doesn't bother at all. The Controls I found a bit spongy, but since I've never driven a Bus, I can't judge that properly. I think if you're a Fan of such a Genre, I probably find all The Things in the Game that drove me almost into Madness totally horny. That is why I wish you a lot of Fun with it. I need Brandy And a Shooter to come down ... ^^ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD6euvAeAio

Actually, there is a very good Idea behind this! Unfortunately you get thrown into a Game world and you don't know what you want to do (That starts in the first 10s where you're supposed to open a certain Goal and drags on through the whole Game). Besides, it's not optimized at all and even with a very good PC you always have FPS crashes! The Sounds are not right and are, of course, cruel. Even the Options are for the Ton! It took me 1 Hour now to move this annoying Bus 100m far and first had to look at which button you even need to press, Everything very awkward, full of Mistakes and overall it just doesn't make fun who has Time all day long, Fun to Knock Find, satisfied with 20 FPS and does not want to spend more than 2 Euros in the SALE, however, makes a "satisfactory" purchase.

So I'm joined by Bus Simulator 2012 if the Developers had joined forces with the Omsi2 Makers as far AS I know TML ne Berlin company would have fitted people look and behave better than with Omsi and Omsi 2 the Graphics are Also a tick better here and there smaller Bugs sink the Garbage can in the Ground or Cars that's down To lags. You can also see This with Eurotrucksimulator 2 both Single And multiplayer Modus.The Sound is partly desolate, which I have to get rid of as a Criticism. But so far Hardly any Rucklers and not a single Crash yet! In The Steam Summersale I bought the Bus Simulator 2012 because you can't do much wrong hihi. Update: Passengers AI is sillier than the Police allowed lattschen in front of the open Doors back and forth and I wait for those to get in. And if I don't wait they howl around that I've left them standing. I WILL NEW PATCH EVEN if the Game is already so old but if the minor Problems and also the bigger ones can be fixed you can get Fun at the Game again.
