The guy should learn to control his head movement. Makes it virtually unwatcheable with his incessant hyperbolic head movment.

Just as a heads up, I tried this game and I wasn't very impressed. The concept is great but the graphics are far to basic. Its like playing an Nintendo 64 game. Scenery objects are quite literally 4 polygons with no textures.

 However, if you want a brilliant VR Train sim, I highly recommend you check out Derail Valley. The game is not released yet but there is a free demo to try.

That's the whole point of the graphics. Not everything is intended to be (or even should be) photoreal. Sometimes it's fun to kick back and be a kid again. 😃

Ok. fair enough. I shall rephrase...

If you want an engaging Train simulator, this is not it (the graphics are too basic). If however, you want to re-live your childhood playing with a trainset, then this is not it (the graphics are too basic). If you want a fun type N64 game, this is not it (you will get bored after 10 minutes).

If you want a VR train simulator of the same kind of detail of your favorite flight simulator. Try derail valley

See? It shows how opinions can differ.

When I played derail valley, I was bored pretty quickly, mostly because it didn't offer anything I couldn't get from all my other train"sims".

Trainsim world, Train simulator 2019, World of Subways, Trainz, a New era....... I have them all, and essentially it's the same thing over and over: yet another game struggling for "realism" and usually fairly clueless about the concept of the word "fun"

I actually appreciate somebody stepping back and having the creativity to approach things from a different angle, and no, I was not interested in an additional button-and-lever-heavy rote-task flight simulator on rails. I often struggle to stay awake in certain trainsims after 100 miles of essentially the same incredibly cookie cutter "realistic" graphics.

This time I was looking for pure fun, for once.

And honestly, if I were to offer my nieces and nephews time in VR with both games (which I have, by the way) I'm pretty sure I know which one they would figure out intuitively and have fun with trying different things, and which one would have them struggling with the "detailed" and "realistic" controls until they got frustrated and asked me to change to something else, while simultaneously developing even further aversion to anything mentioning the word "sim" than they are already developing.

For myself, I very much enjoy something unique every once in a while, where I can play around, and even..... smile.
