Suspension Railroad Simulator
Excitement welled up in my brain when I heard Family Friendly Gaming
was provided download codes for Suspension Railroad Simulator on the Wii
U. The concept of this simulation game sounded awesome. Suspension
Railroad Simulator also sounded very family friendly. Taking these
elevated trains around Germany sounded like one of the most amazing
Suspension Railroad Simulator starts players in their office. We are facing all these cool looking tram vehicles that look the same. The instructions Suspension Railroad Simulator gave me was to go left and hit the Start button. I did that, and nothing happened. I then tried every other single button, and again nothing happened. I left the office on the right side, and walked around. Eventually on the far wall (outside the office) I found a door to the left.
I bristled with excitement as I waited through a really long loading screen. I wondered if maybe the game was stuck when it finally loaded the level. I was inside a train at a station. The game told me to let the passengers in. I tried every single button but nothing opened the doors. I eventually figured out that I had to turn the power on, and then I went to the doors and opened them. People came in, and I closed the doors again. I went back to the cabin to move my machine.
At this point I found out that I was in reverse and I went backwards. The game chided me for blowing a red light, and not letting any passengers board or leave. What? I just picked them up. I then figured out how to move the vehicle forward, and again got in trouble for running a red light, and not letting passengers leave or board. Suspension Railroad Simulator also got mad at me for going too fast through construction zones, and not reporting a fight.
At the next stop I decided to watch passengers enter and board. The visual glitches are crazy in Suspension Railroad Simulator. Passengers walk through seats, each other, and even my character (who is not visible when you use the outside train camera view). On my third stop one of the doors jammed. Suspension Railroad Simulator told me to go close in manually. I went to the door, and tried every single button. Nothing worked. Then a co-worker whom I never saw fixed the door, and I could finally leave that station. I did find the grunt button.
While I was trying to fix the door, four of the exact same looking characters were throwing punches at one another, and heads were rocking backwards. There was never any physical contact between the combatants. Suspension Railroad Simulator was unhappy that I did not report the disturbance, even though I had no clue how to do that. This downloadable only Wii U did not even give me a clue as to how to report something. I had to read the online manual to figure it out.
Once I learned how to play Suspension Railroad Simulator things went smoothly. Move a bit, open the doors, close the doors, and then move a bit again. I will say the sliding animation, women walking like men, and other glitches gave us quite a few laughs. I had high hopes for this game, and Suspension Railroad Simulator did not meet them. Since Nintendo allowed this game, why won't they allow Christian video games? There are plenty of older PC Christian video games better than this they could port over.
