About

It about driving a coach between cities. Currently this is based on German cities but there are plans to add additional countries in future. About 40 cities are included and a variety of coaches.

Graphics

Coaches look great inside and outside. Cities and scenery are well polished but there is a lack of pedestrians on the road and the streets seem to quiet beaus of this. Also some of the roads look too perfect and smooth.

Sound

Doors opening, Radio, Passengers comments, engine all sounds you would expect to hear on a coach journey have been replicated and sound authentic.

Menus and Options

Straight forward and simple. Setting up a wheel was easy enough with the wizard and we were ready to drive in very short space of time.

Gameplay

Great fun and here at PCSimulators are grateful to TML studios for bringing us a coach simulator. As we mentioned earlier there are not many coach simulators for PC so they are leading the way with this sim. We hope to see force feedback improved as this is a must for a coach simulator. The option is in the menus but we only really felt the effects if we hit a kerb. Also passengers look a little lifeless and there are copies of the same passengers at times. Driving around a checking passengers in adds the realism of being a coach driver. The interiors of the coach are excellently modelled and it looks lifelike. The cockpit is well detailed and attention to detail like being able to turn the air conditioning on, the radios, passenger announcements etc add to the realism. Recently comfort Class and NeoplandSkyliner Coaches have been added as DLC's for a reasonable price.

Additional Information

TrackIR supported

Summary

The best coach simulator we have played across a variety of platforms.
