Ah Japan, home of the really weird sim games. Apparently there are alot of train enthusiasts who have been chomping at the bit to be able to drive a commuter train of their own. Hence Densha De Go, the commuter train sim. The gameplay basically consists of switching gears, increasing and decreasing speed, and being able to stop at the station without passing the lone passenger on the platform. You seem to go in a straight line the whole way. Railroad signals occasionally appear to let you know that something's approaching. The manual being written in Japanese doesn't help to figure out what they're supposed to mean.
There are 4 different tracks you can drive on, with differing graphics for all. The graphics are cool, they look like they're digitized photos of Japanese towns. But the gameplay itself is pretty boring. I am a huge fan of weird sim games, I've purchased rock n' roll band sims, EA's rugby series, currently I'm looking for a fast food restaurant sim for GB Color, but as odd as this one is, it's just plain dull.
