In comparison, the Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 has 106,000 people in its library, but CI Games has been available in the market since April, and the creation of the game has required considerably greater financial backing. Meanwhile, according to PlayWay, Car Mechanic Simulator 2018 already on the day of debut, has paid off all the production and marketing costs, was temporarily also on the top of the list of the best selling titles on Steam. The latest installment of the car mechanic simulator series has also significantly improved the result of the previous one - the Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 within the first four days of the premiere found only 12,000 buyers. It is also worth noting that this is not only this year's success PlayWay - in February it released Game 911 Operator, which at this moment holds in its library over 116 thousand players.
No other game can boast such a successful debut - ba, most have so far not achieved the results of the acquisition of Car Mechanic Simulator 2018. Production of the studio Red Dot Games in nine days surpassed in terms of niche sales but beat badly beat Cop (over 48 thousand holders), Serial Cleaner (over 4,000), Get Even (7.5 thousand) and Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs (6,500) ... together!
Commercial success does not go hand in hand with good ratings. So far, Steam has claimed 60% of the players, which is unlikely to be a pride for developers. Negative reviews are primarily due to ubiquitous errors and poor optimization. The state of play just after the premiere was so bad that the developers apologized to the fans, claiming that this situation should never happen. But as the sales figures show, the unsatisfactory rating has not diminished the popularity of the Car Mechanic Simulator 2018. Let's just hope that by their success the creators will not rest on their laurels and will bring their production to an acceptable state.
