Description: Drive massive trains through beautiful, challenging natural environments. Make deliveries of cargo between various industries spread across a vast open world. Earn money, buy new licenses and advance your career as a train engineer, all in a seamless, emergent playthrough. What makes Derail Valley different? You can feel the physics. Walk without restrictions, in and out of locomotives, changing them as you see fit. Couple and uncouple trains as you complete your deliveries. Choose new deliveries freely. Take many at once if you will. Service your trains after derailing. Do this all spontaneously, and at any point, you can save and continue later.

Review: When I saw ‘Derail Valley’ was another train simulator game I have to say I did not have high hopes for it, but boy does it over-deliver. Just for starters, the game is graphically beautiful and driving the trains along the longer sets of tracks felt so awesome that I forgot I was playing a game at all, it just felt so real. So here is the real shocker this game has hidden, its not just a good looking game, it also has loads of content and finishes that makes it feel more immersive. From coupling up the cars and rotating the turntable to driving the trains =, it all feels so good that I can’t help but love this game. Then, for the cherry on top the game only costs £15.49 (which I feel is about £10 too little). If you love your train games, they really don’t get much better than this. Oh…and did I tell you, you can also crash the trains? Oh, yes!
