Product Description

Product Description

London Underground Simulator for PC DVD-ROM

Manufacturer's Description

The third part of the popular ‘World of Subways’ series puts you in the driver's cab on the iconic Circle Line of the London Underground. Authorised by an act of Parliament in 1853, the Circle Line became the world's first underground railway and the genesis of the entire London Underground network.

With 35 beautifully recreated stations and both above and below ground sections, this is an opportunity to take control of the world famous "C Stock" tube trains as you follow a detailed timetable and a myriad of custom missions. Visit such landmark destinations as Baker Street - home of Sherlock Holmes, Euston and Victoria stations, pass under Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament at Westminster and drop off passengers at the fashionable High Street Kensington! The entire Circle Line can be explored, including the new Hammersmith extension.

With over 74 million journeys every year, the Circle Line provides the ultimate subway experience. See the light at the end of the tunnel, with one of the most immersive and realistic rail simulations ever created!

Verified Purchase
First off, I've got to agree with other reviewers about the ridiculous install palava. Even the original Half Life 3 wasn't this much agg!

But bear with it, there's a good sim behind it all. Just follow the instructions carefully and you'll be o.k. (I hate following instructions personally, but I got there first time).

You will need quite a meaty graphics card to get it to run reasonably smoothly. I had an 9500gt with an AMD 720 triple core and it was unplayable, I upgraded to a 560ti and it now runs really well.

Yes, it is a bit boring running to the back of the train setting the lights etc, but after you've done it a couple of times it only takes a couple of mins. The actual driving experience is pretty cool, the graphics are actually quite good and the sound effects are, well... effective!
I have actually managed to drive the train out of the map into no-mans-land once or twice (?!?), suggesting a bit more polish would have been good, but overall I'm pleased with my purchase.
You'll find having a London Underground map to hand pretty useful (unless you're a Londoner and know the Circle Line etc like the back of your hand.

I'm not a train nerd, or a sim-head, but I find myself coming back to this every couple of weeks for a few hours and thoroughly enjoy it.

Worth 15 quid.

Wow,

I have been waiting for quite along time for a decent London Underground simulator....here it is! Realistic and very interactive....its a winner. People who want it just for a game, you may be disappointed. you have to setup the train etc, which I find more realistic etc then just jumping in the train and driving it. The sounds and announcements are realistic!

So, if you are looking for a really good London Underground simulator, I think this is the only decent one around. If you are looking for just a game, you may be disappointed....

This is my review of World of Subways 3. I will be going over pros and cons. Overall, it is an amazing game with minor complaints. Here are the 10 top features for me.

1) Highly detailed C stock
I live in London and take the Circle Line occasionally and TML have done a brilliant job of developing the look of the C stock.

2) Announcements
The announcements are quite accurate. There are also manual announcements like "No smoking allowed, stand clear of the doors."

3) Nicely detailed stations
The station design is very original, for example (EVERY STATION). It seems very realistic and clean.

4) Animations
With the support of the announcements, the announcement "this train is ready to depart. please stand clear of the doors", can make the passengers run to the train, which is quite entertaining to see.

5) No lag
This is really important. My computer is not too powerful, but I didn't really have to lower the graphics, so it makes the game more fun to play.

6) Easy to Install
The installation is fairly straightforward. You will need a internet connection to install the game, but to play the game itself it is not necessary,

7) Loads quickly
From clicking the shortcut, the game takes less than 10 seconds to load. And to load or start a game, it is quick.

8) Variety of missions
There are about 10 missions in the game, so you will NEVER be bored. There are also about 10 regular services you can do as well.

9) "Look back" camera views
This is very practical to see passengers leave and enter the train.

Got the game on Uk Release! Is a good game if you like train simulators, yes you have to get out the train alot but you get used to it and if you do the first mission which is a tutorial it shows you everything you have to do in other missions and that. Once you get used to all the controls you can have alot of fun with it, The graphics are amazing, have top spec gaming pc and on full settings its amazing!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a London Underground train simulation. It invites you to journey around the Circle Line on the London Underground system. There are various routes you can take and it does include the new extension going to Shepherd's Bush. Time has clearly been spent on the graphics to make the stations look as much like the real thing as possible. There are patient training sections designed to help you get started and then there are assignments to complete to prove how good you've become at driving the train.

Simulators have always pricked my curiosty and I'd been keen to see what they were actually like for a long time. I also have a curious fascination with the Underground system itself. I use it almost every day and wanted to appreciate the challenges one could face driving one of the trains. This seemed a good opportunity to combine the two.

This is a very pretty looking game and it is very clear that an afwul lot of time has been spent in making it look as authentic as both my graphics card and the designers could make a game look. It does feel like you are heading in and out of the stations. The train itself also seems to have an authentic feel about it. The cab for the driver has a kind of feel I would expect to find if I were stood in the front of the train. Actually driving the train is altogether different.

Like driving a real train this is notoriously difficult to operate. The instruction book doesn't give you nearly enough information to make the initial stages of driving easy at all. It really helps if you are an expert using keyboard shortcuts, otherwise you will quickly find this an immensely frustrating experience. That said, once the train is running there is a curious excitement about it.
