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.

Re: New Game is NYC Subway Simulator

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

Andrew EisenIf it's any consolation, Xbox owners, Wii U owners don't get the game at all. And if we did, we'd probably never get the DLC.10/30/2014 - 4:19pm
