Description: Let’s operate a train that makes you feel the Showa era! Current Japanese train maneuvering is the lever type, but in the past trains were operated with a mas-con handle and a brake lever. Its operation seems to be complicated, but as you repeat playing, it will lead to the “fun” inherent in railroad games.

Review: I so wanted to hate ‘鉄道運転士VR’ with all the text being in Japanese and the paint-drying gameplay. But no matter how much I try I found myself enjoying this game way more than I should. This is a train driving simulator. There is only one train, but there are quite a few tracks to enjoy. You can go forward and backwards and that is about it. There are also some other surprises along the way but I won’t spoil them here. Maybe asking £9.29 for this game is a little bit too much, but I for one think it is worth grabbing in a sale for sure. You can even try the free demo which will allow you to get a good gist of how to control the train. But I for one think it is worth a download, even if it is all in Japanese.
