If you hear the words driving simulator, you would be thinking about driving education; or trying out new car models or driving assistance systems. The Driving Simulator 2011, an auto game, lets you try simulating different types of vehicles with different missions; from buses and cars, you can also try out driving around cop cars and even those ambulances and with those sirens.

While many would love racing cars and other driving games, this one is also something amazingly unique and adrenaline-stimulating. Since you can drive different cars, there are therefore a lot of different missions; though, you have a choice to play without the missions first. With the free-play mode, you can just simulate driving without goals or time limits. This gets pretty dull in the long run, so you can also try the missions. With those interesting and tricky goals, you get really challenged, and you could not help but wonder what your next mission would be.

Firstly, you could get on behind the wheels, drive the bus, take passengers depending on your route, and making sure you are at those bus stops at the right time. There are also those big truck simulations wherein you need to deliver fragile packages and make sure they get to the addressee on time and in one piece.

Secondly, you could get on behind the wheels, drive the bus, take passengers depending on your route, and making sure you are at those bus stops at the right time. If that seems to be too easy to accomplish, you can move on and try those big truck simulations wherein there is a mission needing you to deliver fragile packages and make sure they get to the addressee on time and in one piece.

You might also be really very interested to drive those police cars. Now what do those cops do in real life? They chase those drivers driving beyond the speed limit, or those who are driving drunk, and that would be absolutely fun! So you get behind that cop car, you get a report, and you turn the siren and those blue lights; and you are on the chase, not minding the traffic rules and all that.

Since this is a driving simulation and not a racing game, you have to be a pretty good licensed driver. Meaning, you have to know the traffic rules, understand road signs, and follow them. Remember to signal whenever you need to make a turn, or follow speed limits -- except of course if you are driving the police cars or the ambulance where you need to be really fast and amazing with those turns. With every violation is a warning; and you can only get a number of warnings per mission, so try driving with the traffic rules in mind.

And speaking of turns, what is pretty disappointing with the game is that it is quite difficult to steer with the keys. The game is actually really for the PC so if you use analog controllers, they just do not work at all. Aside from that, and some troubles with keeping the speed limit, the game is pretty awesome. You would enjoy the missions, and you can keep on trying and trying until you achieve that goal.
