Touch Mechanic review

  • Cool cars to work on
  • Nice story element
  • Able to mod cars as well
  • Painting is too fiddly
  • Screws all look the same
  • Modding options are limited

In the same way Trauma Center let you ‘be’ a doctor without the risk of endangering real lives, Touch Mechanic gives you the chance to tinker under car hoods without any danger of causing a pile-up by mis-fitting a gearbox. Garage procedures are much like operations – select a tool, pick a part to fix, replace the right screws and so on. They’re competent enough, though intricate paint jobs are too fiddly and all the damn screws look the same. You can do a spot of car modding as well, but the options are pretty limited.

Of course, you couldn’t just have a mechanic sim – there has to be a story. Here, you’re a keen young fellow eager to make a name for himself as an engine-tinkerer, although there’s a troubled past…
