This game I think it's the best train simulator. The graphics are really good also the system of career is done very well. Perhaps the only flaw may be some new features are not so good. But otherwise the game can offer a lot of hours of play and have fun with your favorite model of train.
In this new iteration of the Train Simulator franchise, we see a host of new features from Driver Assist to Rail Fan mode. But are they really worth all the hype? Rail Fan mode is little more than a concrete encapsulation of a concept which could already be achieved in TS2015 and before. Fans of TS may recall some user generated scenarios on the Steam workshop which involve train spotting. Rail Fan mode is nothing different - it has just been given an official title. Instead of driving trains, you are sitting there watching them drive past. Driver Assist is a lot more useful - it essentially acts as an aide, guiding you through some of the more intricate aspects to driving a train. Assuming you have already learned the basics in Academy (a very useful feature released with the previous version of TS2015), driver assist helps you hone your skills by highlighting controls. I really like this feature as you can use it every now and then to learn something you never did before. The routes provided are the best part; and in my opinion, the best/only reason why you should consider upgrading. Annoyingly for some, the pack contains two previously released routes - Sherman Hill and Cologne-Koblenz. However they do come with two new locos which have been meticulously detailed and look/drive fantastically. The icing on the cake though is the new Riviera in the Fifties line, which is a brilliant recreation of the GWR in its former glory. Featuring a total of five different locomotives and a selection of brand new wagons/coaches, this route alone is a reason to purchase TS2016. Train Simulator remains by far and away the best, most realistic train simulator on the market. But the new features (especially rail-fan mode) let it down a bit. My advice is to get the upgrade for the Riviera in the Fifties route, and the other two if you don't currently own them. My score is based upon the content in the TS2016 pack, along with the new features.
