    Train Sim World is a robust yet accessible game that caters for a wide range of its material’s responsibilities. The game does a good job at feeding you into its intricacies and once there, rarely fails to maintain its allure. It’s also quite free in its approach, enabling players to explore and drive at a leisurely pace. Not perfect nor groundbreaking by any means, but it does achieve what it sets out to accomplish.

    I think you can tell straight away whether you’re going to like Train Sim World or not. If you like trains and sims, then yes you’re are going to have a ball with this.

    Train Sim World fills a niche for a specific audience, and while that won’t be for everyone, myself included, for the people that’s always wanted to drive a BR1442-6 Talent 2, there’s no better options out there on console currently. Some may find it incredibly boring, as I did in the beginning, but there’s a lot to do and accomplish here if you can learn the intricacies of being a train engineer in this realistic depiction.

    Fiddly but disarming, this patchy locomotive just about stays on the tracks. [October 2018, p.91]

    Ambitious try to make console players feel like a train driver that lacks variety as well as decent visuals.

I really love it, it actually is my favourite game at this moment. For me though, the sim doesn't go far enough in the detail, but that is perhaps due to the limits of console gaming.
    nevertheless, it's fun, but in a nerdy way.. It can get boring but I suggest all safety modes on and then you'll start to see the difficulty of the sim gameplay.
    I'm now playing games with a difference, in this age of clones, I look for games that are different. This is certainly one of them. Give it a go but be patient.
    the graphics could be better, no enhancement as I call for Xbox X.
    Look forward to the updated train sim, particularly the upcoming Somerset west route and the Ruhr Seig Nord sim.
    Provided the content remains cheap, I will be a continued fan. Keep up the good work Dovetail.

    if Dovetail can develop the flight simulator for the Xb1, that would be awesome.

The sheer detail in the trains and the large size of all the routes are a sight to behold. It is also quite relaxing, just going along a route, taking in the atmosphere and dding what you need to do as a train drive. This is a sim through and through and you need to know what to expect. The game sometimes has you doing very little and it may seem boring at times, but I find having a video on in the background or a podcast adds to the experience a lot, like you are listening to the radio along the way. Is it perfect? Definitely not. It can be a tad buggy, the framerate drops at times, there are some lacking details like in the people and there can be a clear lack of instructions on some scenarios. Regardless, I have enjoyed this game a lot and it is a go to game for relaxation for me. If you have any liking of trains and what comes with them, then try it out. Expand
