Upon launching the game, I was directed into the tutorial which started off with some lovely visuals inside the stations. I cannot fault with how good stations look. Especially the underground stations. However, it was quickly apparent as to how poor the sounds were, even before I had driven the train. To cut a long story short, there is simply a lack of sounds and recordings for the stock. In more detail, there’s a lot of sounds that are missing or ones that simply do not sound right, or simply aren’t loud enough. Issues: - There’s little to no track clatter when the train is going over track points. In real life it’s very noticeable as that’s the first thing you hear. - Generic and inaccurate motor sounds. Whilst they may sound okay to some people, these are in fact old and recycled generic motor sounds from TS1. It also doesn’t sync up properly with the speed of the train. - No interior sounds at all. What happened DTG? It’s completely silent on the interior when in reality you shouldn’t be able to hear yourself think, as it’s that loud. - Wheel flange. This isn’t nearly loud as it should be. We also have the old issues of the sound cutting in and out abruptly. Where’s the reverb? To come to conclusion, this is the worst sounding train I’ve heard in TSW for a long time. Granted COVID has caused its own issues with not being able to get all recordings required but without exaggerating, it’s something which sounds like a freeware download. Not a good first impressions when it comes to playing TSW 2. I just hope this doesn’t get repeated for future DLCs.
