After SimCity 2013 was released (I got it at launch) I thought the city-building era was coming to a tragic and slow death… That’s when Cities Skylines came out, I preordered this game, hoping for the best, and my. God. This. Game. Is. Amazing!
From the begging you get lots of freedom. Doing everything SimCity failed to do, modding ( built in modding tools!), Bigger maps, Making your own maps, your own buildings, props, and a ton more. A traffic system that really works, people with actual life’s that they live (People even get too old, and they die! You have to make a cemetery to hold the dead!), An amazing water system, I made a dam to get power from a river, but the river over flowed and half my town was consumed in a flood! There is tons of things to do, and it brings a dying game genre back to life. Take that EA! Quit ruining good series!
So as a lover of city building games, I give Cities Skylines a 9.5/10, the reason that it’s not a ten, is because I have been having some save issues, but the game runs like a dream on my crap laptop! What are you waiting for?! Go get this amazing game!
