European Bus Simulator 2012 is a demo of a free bus simulator game you can download to become a professional driver in an urban environment full of obstacles.
Welcome to Freyfurt city, a fictional place where you will drive. After you download the game you will get started at the central bus station, select your bus and your line and get ready to roll through the city. You must respect the different bus lines and don’t forget you are driving a bus, which has much less mobility than a car, so be careful when you turn in the street!
This software brings real life to your computer. The behaviour of the AI is very realistic and even the pedestrians can have a bad day and get mad at you, so give them a smile to improve your social image.
Choose your game mode; complete full missions or play in the open world. Drive your bus down your own line and be gentle with your passengers; they can react to your behaviour and become hostile.
This software gives you multiple options. You can switch on the air-conditioning, repaint your own bus and adapt your vehicle to the environment circumstances. If there are changes in the weather, you'll have to react differently depending on the kind of meteorological phenomenon. Mist, rain and snow will interfere on your way of driving.
Technical aspects of this simulator
The game is graphically correct. There are some good details, pedestrians are full of small features and textures and bus modelling is quite elaborated. The weather effects are well implemented on the environment showing different kinds of reflections.
There are some issues in the physic aspect like glitches that may interfere on your gaming experience and even make you desperate, but it normally works fine. Once you accept you are driving a bus, it will improve your controls and by ensuring you turn a bit slower than other racing simulators.
Despite the fact that "bus simulation" is not a popular genre, you can find some alternatives to fill that video gaming hole. Bus Simulator is a previous version of this one but it is much loved. BusDriver is also a good simulator, but it may be a bit outdated.

European Bus Simulator Game review for PHPNuke by James Meyette.

European bus simulator is an interesting type of simulator where you control a bus around a number of obstacles in various cities in Europe, all though bus simulators aren’t much of a popular genre that is currently available to simulator fans, this is one of the few that have managed to make it out there.
Overall the game has some decent graphics in it and it is great to play if you have some free time and just like to experience different things that you can do in different simulator type games then this is worth a try. Personally it is not the type of simulator that I would recommend to anyone just because it is a lot of fun(Unfortunately, this is not the case). If someone happened to be looking for a bus simulator specifically I would surely recommend this one over any others that I have seen out there.
In conclusion the game was made fairly well and there are no issues with it that I noticed from spending some time on it. Other than the fact that you really have to be into buses in order to really get into this one, the types of people who will play and enjoy something like this are far and few between.
- Game is built well i didnt notice any bugs during play
- This could be someting great if more people were into this kind of thing
- There is not that big of a commuity that really usese simulators like this.
The Most Realistic Bus Simulator Series That Has Been Released
By Daren Garius

European Bus simulator is a very fun game. I like it because it is unique and realistic where I can drive around in the beautiful town of Freyfurt and interact with different people. I played one version of this game in the past, (European Bus simulator 2011), but I believe this release is the better one so far. What I liked the most in this Bus Simulator is that it has excellent graphics and visuals and an outstanding background of music as well as the sound effects. I also like the way that the passengers get on the bus with proper manner that reflects like a real life. Moreover, the game starts in the garage, where my character will choose one of the vehicles that are available to begin the path. The realistic new bus models include all details, such as a slot for currency exchange and the controls to adjust the seat. Overall, this game is good. I am sure that you will have a good time playing this one.
- Feels like you’re a bus driver
- Extra missions give you extra variation
- Realistic demonstration of a bus driver’s life
