Editors' review

Freight Train Simulator puts you at the controls of a freight train and charges you with keeping it on schedule and on track. You'll have to use your wits and skill at the helm to make sure the train goes as quickly as possible, but not too fast, so that it gets to the next station in time.

Pros

Data presentation: Your speed, distance traveled, time, and other relevant information are clearly displayed along the left-hand side of the game screen as you're playing. You can also see how far up you've adjusted your throttle and brake, and the timer counts down, so you'll always know exactly how much time you have left.

Straightforward controls: This app uses basic keyboard controls, two buttons for the throttle and two for the brake. There is also an option to cycle through a few different camera angles, so you can get a good look at the whole train, and you can control what you're looking at by moving the mouse.

Cons

Camera control: Adjusting the camera with the mouse is a little jerky, and it's tough to get the hang of, at first. But with a little practice, you'll get used to it.

Bottom Line

Freight Train Simulator is exactly what its name suggests. It's a fun, free game with decent graphics and basic enough controls. It's not loaded with features, but it's still a good way to kill some time and try and beat your own scores.

    "Not bad but...there are a few kinks"

    July 23, 2014   |   By sndwnr

    Version: Freight Train Simulator 1.07

    Pros

    1. I liked the idea of controlling my own freight train.
    2. The graphics are decent, not spectacular but decent for a free game.
    3. Controls were easy enough.

    Cons

    1. No overhead map, so you have to be very careful when a curve of the track comes your way.
    2. You have to jump thru hoops just to get the game loaded. Be very, VERY careful...there are a lot of boxes to uncheck/offers to decline and that's not including the ones from C-net (it's probably the most I've ever seen for one program).
    3. When exiting the game I had to use the task manager to get back to my Windows 8.1 desktop, otherwise I had a blank screen.

    Summary

    It was a good game with a few kinks. I wish it contained an overhead map on a small portion of the screen, just to show me what was coming and get an approximate distance of how much further I have to go.
