The Game Review

The game is judged harshly by the beta users as not really good. The reasons – boredom, repetition, and lack of variety. In the game, you meet the passengers at the bus stops, and they get to the bus by means of teleportation. There are only 30 routes to choose from, and each of them takes between five and six minutes to complete. As a driver, the player can get behind the wheel of 10 vehicles. However, there are no differences in driving no matter which bus you take. The main task for the player in the game is to safely and timely transport the passengers from one bus stop to the next. The player is rewarded or penalized for the quality of his job once he returns to the base. The player may lose points for such events as:

  • emergency braking,
  • delays (even by seconds),
  • and breaking the rules such as the lack of signaling with a direction indicator when changing lanes.

In contrast, the bonus in the game is added for arriving at the stop on time, not abruptly braking, and signaling each turn. An interesting variant of the game is two routers: the transport of criminals to the local prison and to court. These should be made in the shortest possible time.

In Bus Driver Simulator 2018, the player uses an automatic transmission, horn, and hazard lights. While driving, the player is guided by the big red arrows on the asphalt. The game is all about pushing the gas, sometimes using the brake, and opening the door. In the game, the car base is limited to:

  • a pickup truck,
  • van,
  • classic sedan and sports model.

The players also noticed such shortcomings as buildings embedded in the pavement, poor sound effects, lack of diversity, and a very low level of difficulty.
