How to Play the Game
In the game, you play as a mechanic performing various repairs in the cars of your customers. The simulation character of the game makes the plot unimportant. The game gives you the opportunity to feel like a real car mechanic without leaving your home. Your main goal is to make money. You achieve this by gaining reputation and performing ever more expensive and complex repairs. The second way to get rich is to buy old cars and repair them for later sale thus earning a profit. This profit can be invested, for example, in the development of the workshop, giving access to more difficult and better-paid jobs. You will need about 30 hours to complete the game.
Despite being a simulator, the game does not require complicated mechanical knowledge. The intuitive menu allows you to diagnose faults, order parts, and replace damaged components easily. There are 16 vehicle models available, each consisting of nearly 200 interactive parts that can malfunction. The orders and defects are generated randomly, and the player decides which cars to take first. An interesting variation are special missions where your customers want their cars tuned. You can install gadgets and visual modifications.
What’s New in Car Mechanic Simulator 2015
The new addition in the current version (CMS 2014) is the vehicle auction system. You can buy damaged cars by investing your hard-earned money. By repairing and renovating the car you can then sell it with a certain profit. However, if you want to have a collection of interesting classic cars in your garage, there is nothing to stop you from keeping them in. Cashing in on your efforts is totally up to you.
A lot of changes, compared to Car Mechanic Simulator 2014, has been made also in the graphics department. The models of cars and engines are more detailed, and the body of the cars has taken a deep and realistic shine. The workshops are now large, well-lit locations that allow you to hold several cars at once. Also, there are more ways the cars can malfunction and more ways the vehicles can be fixing. This makes the game playable for longer before the monotony sinks in. The optimization also deserves praise. The game runs smoother even on slightly weaker hardware.
