  1. Great City Builder
    by John E.10, USA - Oct 14th 2017

    I had not played this since before the first DLC and I played without any mods, so to come back to the great updates that came without even purchasing the DLC, I was very pleasantly surprised.

  2. A Wonderful Game
    by Porthos40, USA - Sep 10th 2017

    I love this game. The graphics are wonderful to look at, sound designer did a great job with atmosphere. This game ran like butter on my Mac Pro 2.8ghz Quad Core(2010) with Radeon 7950 3GB.I highly recommend this for a city builder.

  3. Fun, but a bit easy
    by Anthony G.9, Canada - Sep 4th 2017

    This is a great game, the graphics are great and it definitely scratches the creation itch you might have. That being said I feel the game doesn't have a lot in the way of a challenge. I'm by no means a great city creator, but my city is thriving and I haven't put much thought into it to be honest. It's my first trial by fire run and I'm killing it...kind of takes away my motivation to start a new city. All that being said, there are a ton of micromanagement options for those who like delving deep so it has potential to eat up your life. Fun game but be weary of the longevity if you're a casual. 8.5/10
