Review Cities: Skylines in Advance I would like to say that I Am basically not playing Building games because of the Challenge. Whether Games like Anno, Sim City or Yes Cities: Skylines-I draw my Fun from it and hardly put any Value on the economic Aspect or correct Simulation of the Games. To me, they're more of a Kind Of Lego Box. :) I ask that to be taken into account, because from this Viewing angle I rate the Game. And I have to say that Cities is doing pretty well here and got much better again with the Addon After Dark. I have to get out yes, I really liked the last Sim City as well. It may be That the Game had Quirks and only pre-installed the Simulation in the Background for the player. For my Style of play, though, that didn't Matter. In Terms of Atmosphere, I also found Sim City much better than Cities at first: Skylines, but with the Add-on, the Game not only drew the same, but also worked out an atmospheric Lead. Graphically, I liked Sim City better at the time, but what is atmospherically taken out here by the Tag-/night change (for such a Game of sorts) is already great. It's just always nice to see as gradually the street Lights and Lights in the Houses tackle and on the Party mile the Mood rises! :) Otherwise, the Game offers pretty Much everything that's needed for the inclined Hobbyist and you can let off steam to your Heart's Content. For a Patch a little Longer ago, Roads can also be laid underground (on multiple Levels), so you can plan and tinker really nicely. For my Taste, however, it is likely to be a few more urban Service Buildings, but this is mecker at a very high Level. I can definitely still get into my City for hours and see how I can still optimize the Areas or Roads-unfortunately I still have too much Traffic Jams on my Roads. ;) Getting into Cities is quite easy in Principle, but genre beginners might be a bit overwhelmed at first, as in Principle there are no Tutorials. But If you deal with the Game a little bit, it should still be quite feasible quite quickly. I am aware that I probably leave a lot of Strengths from the Game behind, as they don't matter in my Style of play. But the Test is my subjective Opinion. :) Technically, Cities: Skylines makes a good Impression. I can't quite share the partly euporic Comments on the Graphic, it's good without Question, but in my Opinion it's not outstanding either. I have no technical Problems whatsoever and can play with maximum Details in 1080p (Core i7-2600k @ 4.5 GHz, 12 GB RAM, Geforce GTX 970 SLI). My Rating: Graphic: 7/10 Sound: 7/10 Circumference: 10/10 Atmosphere: 8/10 Play: 83%
It works fine with a game pad but sometimes I miss a PC mouse. While the actually simulating agents is neat and it's fun to watch people do real things, I sometimes wish it simply pretended in order to speed up the simulation and increase city sizes.

Unlike recent SimCity games, I like that you can have one city that just keeps growing.
Pretty good. Relaxes my brain. Dat OST!
