Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 for PC, PS4 and XONE is the third installment of a new series from PlayWay, a studio known from a number of notable titles such as The Way, or Helicopter: Natural Disaster. The 2018 edition is the first one to offer PlayStation 4 and Xbox One releases.


The basic idea of the series has not been changed – our goal is to repair vehicles (this time we are looking at over 40 different types) in order to build up a reputation and bring new clients along with their automobiles. The repairs see us replace the individual parts, as well as perform diagnostic tests to check for irregularities.

Each repair has a few mandatory stages. We begin by accepting a job, then approach the vehicle and investigate or perform necessary tests to check if everything is all right. If the problem is e.g. in the engine, the player raises the hood and dismantles the whole segment, looking for the flaw. Replacing the parts and reassembly are standard procedure. The parts can be ordered from the Internet, while some of the vehicles have to wait, as certain instruments are awarded after advancing to higher levels of our workshop’s proficiency. Aside from the above, we can paint the cars or test them on a racetrack.

Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 manages to stay true to the simulator genre, offering gameplay that is approachable even for people that have no knowledge of car mechanics. Parts in question are marked with colored edging and the game shows tips on what to do next etc.

Technical Aspects

When it comes to graphics, Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 for PC, PS4 and XONE is a fulfilling title that manages to deliver faithfully recreated car models. The layout of the workshop itself may not be that satisfying, yet the game offers photorealistic textures and models, which should satisfy every player.


Some of the shops offered an exclusive version of the game that came with a high-visibility vest.
