OMSI 2, Germany’s Most Advanced Bus Simulator is Here with Articulation

OMSI proposed a direct and unassisted bus driving experience that made it a niche product. However, for those who found themselves fancying that niche, it was a breath of fresh air in a sea of commercial mediocrity that plagues it.

It did lack variety of vehicles and maps, and even if the sequel, OMSI 2, doesn’t come in to fix that with a lot more content, it is an improvement of the original formula so therefore worthwhile (if you already know and like the first one).

The main feature added by this second game is realistic bus articulation, and the introduction of an articulated single-decker one for the very first time. It’s a variation of the double-decker designs seen before, and it poses a new challenge to drive, requiring extra skill to thread through the often narrow streets found in the game (most of the cities reproduced by the modding community are European).

Aside from the new physics capabilities of the game engine, graphics have also been updated, as has the original Berlin-based map, which gets new routes. Keep in mind that this is still not a pretty game like some commercial titles, but the bus models are very detailed and the choice of maps and scenarios is practically infinite. You can customize all parameters, including weather, to your heart’s desire.
