Become a Bus Driver - almost for real!
Bus Driver is a great simulation game - you have to drive around a city obeying traffic rules and taking care of your passengers while encountering different routes, weather and seasons. If you drive well, you get bonus points (green light bonus, proper usage of blinkers, keeping your passengers happy for one mile etc). But, as this is very realistic game, you can go very wrong as well - crashing into lampposts and other cars, driving through red lights, and even just breaking too hard earns you penalties. Someone even said in the forums that they managed to crash into a petrol station and the bus exploded!
I found it a great game - the intelligent traffic is great, land- and cityscapes beautiful - shame only that you can't look at them too long - as a driver you need to concentrate on driving and getting your passengers safely to their destinations!
There were only a few things I found a bit unbelievable - the changing of seasons in one level (in the airport it's always winter, but quite soon, when you drive further into the city, it will be summer again) and that people actually stop and wait as long as you indicate you want to change lanes. I also found the controls slightly confusing, but I got used to them by the end of the first tier. I wasn't really keen on the music either, and had to turn it off. Apart from these little faults, it's a very well planned and made game.

A new career path
This game is fun. It's not fancy - you simply drive a bus picking up and dropping off passengers. It is a lot harder than it sounds. My only complaint was the instructions. I still do not know how to turn on the turning signals. Otherwise, I played this for quite some time, as did the kids as well.

This is a great game, a lot of fun and keeps you entertained. It's very realistic, you have to transport passengers and drive as carefully as you can making sure to stop at a red light and signal when you're turning. It can be quite challenging as you have to avoid crashing into things and hitting the breaks too soon - the passengers scream when you do this! Overall I would recommend this game.

I haven't quite convinced myself to buy the full version of this game but I thoroughly enjoyed the demo.
The graphics were really amazing and as Sim games go this one was great. It does take some serious practice to fully learn to control the bus but once you get the hang of it, it is really, really fun.
The only reason I'm on the line to buy it or not is that I'm scared at how much time I'll waste driving a virtual bus plus I'm not sure whether or not the fun will where off after a period of time.

If you're tired of the same old game concepts you should give this a try. I'm not a great driver and all the screaming passengers will attest to that in this game. I couldn't see how to use the mouse so I had to use the keyboard to drive the bus. The "options" tells you what keys perform what function (be sure to read that first). It's like driving a real bus. There are many different routes, types of weather and vehicles. You get points for getting there on time and not breaking any laws on the way but I usually ran over a few things. No harm.

Real fun game
It's like driving a real bus! But it's not so good for little babys [toddlers]. I wish they would make the trail was longer. I think it's one of the best game on BIG FISH. But still if you don't like driving games then i would not download. Because it's for people how like driving games like me or if you real like bus. But i would not buy it full price i would use a code like NEW299. All i want to say is thats a awesome game
