Are you ready to wile hours of your life away in yet another simulation game? If so, Bus Simulator: Console Edition will take you for a spin and then some, thanks to the efforts from Astragon Entertainment and Stillalive Studios.
So… Bus Simulator. What is there to say? You drive buses. It’s in the name. There are numerous officially licensed buses in the game, for all three bus enthusiasts wondering. Honestly, I wouldn’t know one from the other, but I suppose it’s nice that the developers have gone the extra mile to make it as authentic as possible for those who really do care about such things.
You can simply ride your bus along your own routes in single-player, or you can buddy up with three other friends in co-op multiplayer. There are challenges, missions, and what the developers call an “entertaining progressions system” that’ll keep you bussing along nicely .
For those looking for the most authentic Bus Simulator experience, Bus Simulator: Console Edition supports the use of steering wheel peripherals and all the accompanying pedals. Now you just need a ticket machine and a hat and you’ll be good to go.
I know I’m poking fun here, but honestly, this is the kind of thing I’d get lost in for days. I’ve put more time into American Truck Simulator than I care to admit. These games tend be quite chilled out, so if you’re looking for a change of pace, it might be worth a look.
