Ever questioned what on earth your mechanic was doing with your car that cost so much? Now you don’t have to wonder with Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 by Red Dot Games. Put on your overalls and grease up in preparation to run a car mechanics repair shop in this detailed simulator.
The premise of the game is simple. Receive an order to fix a car, then fix the car, test drive it and return in to the client. The reality is a little bit more complex as the game gets progressively harder, you are required to take more of the car apart to locate and remove the damaged parts. Replace the part and test the car to ensure it functions properly. The game provides a really nice amount of detail and an ethereal view where the player can move through the chassis of the car and view a section, such as the engine, in its entirety.
This, alongside the lack of argumentative customers and slow computer systems, removes any of the frustrating or pointless parts of the real job that would serve no purpose in the game. There is also an interesting money management aspect present where the player must ensure they don’t damage the vehicle or the workspace else they may incur further costs than simply sourcing the parts for replacement.
This title provides a great deal of detail, as one would expect in a simulator. Ranging from accurate car designs and part prices to the actually pretty decent driving mechanics present in the test phase and the general look of the shop. I found it to be something of an ideal concept of a mechanics shop; everything is mostly clean and labelled. They took away a lot of the grime and grease associated with mechanic shops and I found that to be a nice reprieve that made the game nicer to look at and improved the experience all round.
Given that this is a first person game where you are free to move around, it added to the satisfying feeling for the workshop to not seem cluttered and dirty. The game differs from many of the other simulator style games such as American Truck Simulator, which focuses more on the driving aspect and has far less on any mechanical detail like this title does, which makes Car Mechanic Simulator quite unique.
Car Mechanic Simulator offers a great deal of downloadable content for the player to work on. This comes in the form of new cars like the classic and iconic DeLorean to new game modes such as Car Stripper which provides far more gameplay in general, giving the title more dimensions and more playability.
Although Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 initially suffered from a lack of variety, the DLC have soothed that issue and provided a more rounded and enjoyable experience. If you enjoy a technical game with a nice attention to detail then this title is for you.
