Train Simulator is by far the best train simulator on the market. Completely dominating competition, this game boasts the most realistic and extensible simulation around. Following nicely on from the original MSTS (Microsoft Train Simulator) and developed by people heavily involved in it, this lovingly recreated modern day rework is the perfect simulation game for the casual gamer through to advanced train sim fan. The disappointing thing about TS2015 or any incarnation of the game is the lack of trains you get by default. The game and company behind it (Dovetail Games) survive on the additional DLC that you buy having purchases this, the main game. The routes and locomotives that are given to you as part of this initial purchase are often old and outdated, and the routes are comparatively low detail. That said, they do generally throw in three modern/recently created routes for good measure. The other drawback is the outdated rendering engine. Using their own technology, the graphics look just acceptable for some of the older routes/trains, and OK for many of the modern ones. This is due to change in the not-too-distant future with the release of the game utilizing Unreal 4. If you are planning to buy a train sim game, look no further. With a DLC catalogue of over £3,000, there are many routes and trains to keep you occupied. The simulation is (currently) unparalleled and beats the likes of Trainz by far. You will get bored of the small selection of routes which it comes with, but provided you are willing to spend the money to purchase additional content, you will never look back.

Train Simulator 2015 is the same basic game it was in 2014, 2013, and so on. The game is continually updated each year, with some fixes and new content, but the basic framework is the same. TS2015 is the best train sim on the market today, mostly because it is the only one that is 100% geared as a simulator. The game is terrific for those with a vested interest in current and past railroads, but be warned that the game is geared a little more towards European railways. The game is easy to pick up, with useable menus, tutorials, and scaled difficulty settings. You can just travel the rails in your chosen equipment, or complete missions of varying difficulty. Graphics are well done, and the whole package from visuals to sound are a highlight. From a personal perspective, TS2015 is worth the time for railfans, but also could use improvement. Performance on all but the best systems can be spotty and framerate drops in large areas are frequent. Sound files for whistles, bells, etc are not dynamic/playable and have no variety. AI could be more interesting, as many times other trains just go through the motions, there only to pass by you without impeding your progress or will even blow a whistle before a grade crossing. Those things aside, TS2015 is a must have for railfans and those wanting a change of pace in the simulator genre.
Many simulators are rubbish but there are the odd ones which are very good such as Euro Truck Simulator. Train Simulator is also one of them, perfect for the enthusiast and everyday gamer. Looks good and is realistic but a bit laggy at times. Overall on of the better simulators and highly recommended.
There are a few games that take its role as a simulator seriously. Often we are treated with parody, satire (sometimes), and just all around jokey simulators that make fun of the whole thing. But games like Train Simulator 2015 remind us what this genre is all about. Unadulterated simulation to its finest degree. You feel every bit of emotion you feel when you get on the train: from the contemplative window watching to the unsteady traveling from car to car, this game has almost all it can give with regards to trains. I say almost all, because it lacks the hellish struggle that is the daily commute. I haven't seen all the game has yet to offer, but I'm sure this train has never seen the dangers and horrors that is public transportation as those found in populated areas like India. I would actually like to see a simulator like that, jam packed with passengers, fighting for your seat on the train, being forced to illegally climb on top and hang on for dear life as the train moves with deadly speed. I digress though. This train doesn't, and shouldn't, sober us, but provide us with the train-riding experience we all want. Now excuse me, I have a ride to catch.
