New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

October 13, 2008 -

GP is an admitted sucker for simulation games, so it's no surprise that World of Subway caught our eye.

German developer TML Studios launched their first foray into subway sims in 2005 by adding the Berlin underground to Microsoft Train Simulator, a game which enjoys a following among hardcore rail enthusiasts. Top News has a report:

The game allows players to manoeuvre between New York City and New Jersey, picking up passengers along the way. Publisher Aerosoft says the program will win people over with its realism: slow motion is used to convey the sensation of movement. The three-dimensional cockpit starts vibrating at high speeds.

The program's creators do not intend stopping at New York. A series is planned focusing on the world's most interesting subway stretches.

GP: Here's hoping that the London Tube is TML's next sim project. Mind the gap, and all that...

I'm just glad there's no in-game advertising in GTA IV - imagine if they were tricked into advertising a subway game in Liberty City...

When Games Suck - taking the niggling, irritating game design flaws that waste your time and piss you off - and rubbing them in the designers' faces.

Any game with NYC i find myself playing, phones full of games and apps for New York and even the new york seo we do is enjoyable.

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Experience all the action and thrills of a real trip on the NYC city subway! Get felt up by a creepy guy! Stand right next to someone with BO! Switch from rail to rail in a hackneyed attempt to get to the exact spot you're looking for! Discover too late you're going in the wrong direction! All these experiences can be yours!

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Hmmm.. Is Railfan available? Will it run on my North American PS3?

 

 

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Reminds me of that Simpsons episode where Bart refuses to do yard work, but jumps at the chance of playing a new yard work sim game.  Sorry, but 'subway train conductor' is not one of the jobs that I've ever dreamed of having...

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Interesting, PS3's Railfan has a simulator of the Chicago train route I take to work. Although to be completely accurate, the train should slow down to 5mph in the middle third of the route. Damn year-round construction...

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Sorry to disappoint you GP, but their next release on this will be Berlin's U7 line. But London Tube might be next as the Berlin one is currently due for release in December 08 (at least according to the current release list of TML's German publisher Aerosoft) ;)

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Someone please remind me why I can't take photos in the subway again?

I don't know how accurate exactly this game is, but the screenshots look pretty damn accurate to me (I live in New York).

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Japan's had a game like this for years. Bullet train sims, but pretty much the same thing. Interesting to see an American developer jumping on the public transportation sim bandwagon.

Mind the yawning chasm.... ;)

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

They are making a tube version, but unfortunately, it's been delayed.

MonteThough from a business side, i would agree with the article. While it would be smarter for developers to slow down, you can't expect EA, Activision or ubisoft to do something like that. Nintnedo's gotta get the third party back.02/28/2015 - 4:36pm
MonteThough it does also help that nintendo's more colorful style is a lot less reliant on graphics than more realistic games. Wind Waker is over 10 years old and still looks good for its age.02/28/2015 - 4:33pm
MonteWith the Wii, nintnedo had the right idea. Hold back on shiny graphics and focus on the gameplay experience. Unfortunatly everyone else keeps pushing for newer graphics and it matters less and less each generation. I can barely notice the difference02/28/2015 - 4:29pm
MonteON third party developers; i kinda think they should slow down to nintendo's pace. They bemoan the rising costs of AAA gaming, but then constantly push for the best graphics which is makes up a lot of those costs. Be easier to afford if they held back02/28/2015 - 4:27pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2015/02/28/the-world-is-nintendos-if-only-theyd-take-it/ I think this is a interesting op-ed, but yeah it kind of is stating the obvious.02/28/2015 - 2:52pm
prh99The government probably doesn't need an app, but I was think more along the lines of a company that was going to sell the collected info. “If you're not paying for the product, you are the product” sometimes even if you pay.02/28/2015 - 1:50pm
E. Zachary KnightWhat better way for the government to keep track of you than to get you to install an app that lets you insult the government.02/28/2015 - 11:03am
prh99No, but I looked it up and it's basically spyware. Their privacy policy says their apps tracks among other things your location and browsing habits via cookies.02/28/2015 - 8:20am
Ryan RardinHas anyone here heard of an app called iCitizen? It's basically Yelp for politicians.02/28/2015 - 5:16am
Andrew EisenAh, not linked in the way you (and everyone else) want and expect. That's true.02/27/2015 - 10:06pm
