Train Simulator 2015 is a train simulation game developed by Dovetail Games. It follows Dovetail Games annual game release model. Gameplay There is no plot present in the game. The players participate in different singleplayer scenarios that are either preset by the developers or created by the community. The game also features a so-called free roam mode, where the players can choose whichever train they would like to use, attach carts of different types and explore the in-game world. The game's train routes resemble the real ones that can be found in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, and the United States. The players handle all the aspect of the train on its route by walking in the cabin of the driving cart in a first-person view. The game features a realistic graphics and physics model. It is possible to pull all the levers, push all the buttons in a heavily detailed driving cart of any train. All the cargo and the passengers are detailed and animated by hand resulting in a substantial degree of realism. The game also features a dynamic weather system which drastically affects the gameplay. For example, a heavy storm can drive an old steam locomotive off the tracks. Multiple train types are present in the game, from the 19th century steam-powered trains to the most advanced modern magnetical levitation locomotives.

Train Simulator reviews and comments

Nice Pastime for Relaxation, which you also have to deal with seriously in order to really Have fun with it ... And maybe some Tips for all The people here who just didn't understand the Game somehow and therefore rate it so negatively ... As a real simulator fan, I actually think the Game is quite good. The Graphics are really not bad for a Simulator and I don't think it should be any better either. The whole thing should run smoothly and jerk-free, What better Graphics do you use if you brew over land with the ICE at just under 300 km/h and it constantly jerks, because the PC constantly has huge amounts of Data to load just because even more Details are standing out somewhere or more beautiful Textures Be installed. It's about train simulation and not a Landscape Simulation ... To the sudden Speed Restrictions ... I have to confess honestly, that confused me a bit in the Beginning as well. At the bottom of the Display, for example, there are 120 km/h and all of a sudden a Limit to 80 km/h, without which the one at the bottom of the Display was displayed. These Speed Limits are all indicated by Signage. For Example, on the German Routes, there is first a triangular Sign with, for example, an 8 on it. This is almost the Notice that, for example, will apply from the next Signal 80 km/h. There is then a small one again (believe square??) Sign with the 8 on it. So just pay more attention to the Track and Signage than to gobbing around and getting upset about the allegedly bad Graphics ...;-) And for all those who are keen on the Medals in career mode, you can save at any point in the Game, so you avoid having to make the whole Scenario again by a stupid Mistake. For longer Distances, I save every 10 Minutes or simply in any Train station. Then the Frustration is not so great, once you have overlooked something ... ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ happens ^^ However, the subsequent Store I find very cumbersome made. You have to leave the Scenario, select the Mode again, find the corresponding Scenario and then click Continue. I would like to see you just reload the last Game stand during the Scenario ... Achja, and sometimes, if you think the Scenario would be confused, sometimes somehow doesn't go any further. In some Places you have to get permission, for example, to be allowed to run over a red Signal, or you also have to set a Soft "by hand," especially during Shunting Trips ... I also find funny that People complain here that a Scenario that should last for example 4 Hours, then really lasts so long. Aeaan What???? If that's too long for you, why not play a shorter one? Or saves after an Hour and does it end another time? No one is forced to sit on the PC for 4 Hours ... People there, lol ... In some Scenarios, a few Bugs are installed. For Example, Passengers hovering across the Tracks in the Station and somehow all look the same. Cars that also like to pass through the Train At the Level crossing, etc. I am sure that some people who have paid 30 Euros for a Scenario will be annoyed by this. Then even such Little things should not occur. What we would be with on the next Topic would be the really totally exaggerated Prices of the DLCs. But Since so much has been specrated about this, which I absolutely support, the Prices do not go, I would like to be brief. I only buy the DLCs if there are offers at Steam. With a bit of Luck you have sometimes 3-5 Scenarios with corresponding Locomotives under 10 Euros. Because with all DLCs, this is probably the most expensive Game ever ...;-) My Conclusion after many Hours of Play (usually play offline, so I don't have that many Hours at Steam) is actually very positive, with a few Things that could be improved. But let's face it, even if it would seem perfect, someone will always find a Hair in the Soup ... ^^
