Surprising Mixed Reviews for a Train Simulator Loved by Many

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Thursday, October 9, 2014

There are only few games that feature beautiful autumn sunsets and Rail Simulator is one of them. Its stunning graphics, new menus, and unique career system make it a perfect choice for first-time train simulation gamers. You will be able to choose the routes you can take, trains you can drive, and even the season of the year that will determine the weather condition of your driving environment. For previous players however, the Rail Simulator for 2014 is disappointing. Its gameplay has not changed and only 3 routes have been added to its list of free ones. You can only get new ones if you buy from Steam, the game’s official forum. The driving experience is another story because it requires high learning curve for beginners. If you decide to drive old trains, you’ll get by easily especially with the game’s tutorials, you can learn pretty quickly. However, choosing modern trains can be tough to start with.

Pros

  • Provides enough depth and challenge
  • Offers authentic train driving experience

Cons

  • Very pricey to start with

Giving You a Chance to Experience to Drive a Realistic Train

By Sam James

On Friday, August 1, 2014

If you love to ride a train, this simulator will perfectly suit you and it is called the Rail Simulator. This program brings everything you like about riding trains with the high spirits of speed, spectacular graphics, and different types of trains, challenging mission and a realistic route. This simulator has a good quality when it comes to its sounds and graphics and I must say that this simulator is more advanced than the other train simulator out there. This game can easily be installed and runs instantly without having any problem even in a low spec XP computer. On the other hand, Rail Simulator is a good way to experience to drive a realistic train, and you don’t need to become a train enthusiast first before you try this wonderful simulator. You only need to do is to become a broad-minded and always prepared to try something new. Overall, Rail Simulator gives you an enjoyable driving experience to the extent that you actually feel like you are driving a real train.

Pros

  • Gives you a brilliant experience
  • It has a good graphics than the other simulator

Cons

  • Some missions are kind of boring
