I WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY AGAIN!!!

Summary: I tried to install my program. I found that I could not install it until I went to a third-party site and created an account. That process took well over an hour because of mainly the downloads that the site required. When I was finally cleared to install from my disk the download took a couple of minutes. I received notice that included "Play Game" as the first choice.
Summary: This is a nice piece of software but, know what it is you are buying first! The Train simulator does not exist on the disc, it is a 6.5 gig download from the software's server. If you are running Windows XP I do not recommend it. Some of the features for XP have already been left in the dust. If you have a slower internet connection you will NOT like the result. The game is absolutely internet connection dependent.
Summary: I have tried and tried to install this game and I have not suceeded in doing so,I even went as far as to have a new video card installed and still no luck.As far as I'm concerned I wasted my money!
Summary: No fault of the merchant. The DVD arrived in perfect condition. After I inserted it, Steam told me that it would download Train Simulator 2013 and completely ignore the game in my computer, Train Simulator 2012 which was the game I wanted. My solution? Throw the DVD in the trash, uninstall Steam and live happily ever after.
Summary: My 8 yo son loves this simulator. It has American trains, which he was super excited about and you can download different railways and engines (you have to pay for them) if you want to try something new.
Summary: I don't know if this is the next version of what used to be Microsoft train sim or not. If not, they don't seem to be dong anything to dissuade you from thinking so. That's why I bought it. The very best part, IMO, of msts is not there. The meticulously rendered backheads and control stands are gone, replaced by a generic and extremely dumbed down control set. That's right. From steam to the most modern hst, the controls are exactly the same. Blech.
