Should I play OMSI 2 Add-on Hohenkirchen in 2024?

The good

Unfortunately, there isn’t much positive to say about this DLC. The overall sentiment is overwhelmingly negative.

The bad

The biggest issue seems to be the extremely narrow roads, which make driving a frustrating experience. Players are finding it difficult to pass or meet AI buses, leading to a clunky and unenjoyable gameplay experience.

Verdict

It’s a shame that this DLC had so much potential, but it seems like the narrow roads are a major turn-off. Unless you’re a die-hard OMSI 2 fan and can overlook this glaring issue, it’s hard to recommend this DLC. For the average player, it’s best to steer clear.
