2.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining for all of the wrong reasons, 26 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bus Simulator 2 (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
The cover of the game is highly misleading as it would suggest that buses can be selected with local livery rather than the very basic schemes on offer.

As a bus enthusiast, I do find the game enjoyable. In order to progress in the game you have to run a successful service, avoiding traffic violations (speeding, collisions, jumping red lights). As a result any collision of any kind is logged as the fault of the game player, and here are where the problems begin. The game is rather extreme in trying to represent real life driving scenarios. Every other road user is overly aggressive, looking to cut inside/outside with reckless abandon. This is where some of the quirky aspects of the game come to the fore.

One of the many random events that have occurred was when a car drove into the back of my bus, went flying over and continued to speed off down the road. Of course, the game registered this as the bus drivers traffic violation, resulting in the failure of the route! I'll be honest, I do find these "events" very amusing, but how is one to progress in the game when beset by such freakish and random occurrences that can only be simply put down to poor software engineering?

As one of the cheaper entry categories of the vehicle simulator games, it might be worth a purchase, as long as you have a good sense of humour. I guess you get what you pay for.
