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

Christy C, Amazon
11 April 2014
  • 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.

Was not able to play this game

Lindsay Weekes, Amazon

  • 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.

If you had the previous version you'll hate it

Carey, Amazon

  • 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.

Train Simulator 2012

Loren F. Swearingen, Amazon

  • Summary: This is the worst program I have ever purchased. It is hooked up with Steam and very difficult to use. I paid $30.00 for it and got $10.00 back when I returned it. BOOOOO!

Steam gets in the way.

Wayne S. Hawkins, Amazon

  • Summary: Train Simulator very hard to load and made my computer run slower due to Steam the games producers (I think). Anyway I'm returning it. Micrsoft TS is better when I had it.

Useless program

Barbara, Amazon
3 March 2012
  • Summary: I gave this program a try despite mixed reviews on this site. In order to run the program at all you must be tethered to a game site called Steam. This program and the Steam site disrupt the normal operation of some functions on your PC. Technical support is almost useless. I followed all of the troubleshooting information I could find without success. When first installed the game ran OK and is a great simulation game but the more I used it the worse the problems got.

Not a Stand Alone Game

Henry Kirk, Amazon
18 January 2012
  • Summary: This game is a misrepresentation. Unless you have an internet connection, you don't play. Amazon said nothing about this on the description, there was nothing on the box, only after you open the package do you hear about STEAM.....and you really don't get the whole picture until you load in the disc. Shame on Amazon. Worse, STEAM, like others have said is unstable, but there customer service is among the worst I have even encountered.

Not happy with this purchase

Playingpossum, Amazon
15 January 2012
  • Summary: This title is dependent upon STEAM to run. Steam is a 3rd party download that is unstable and unreliable. I have been unable to successfully run Steam even on a new quad core computer.
