Summary: The game is very complex and takes some serious time investment to understand and make rewarding. That said, it's far more realistic than Sim CIty. For the low cost, I find it a good deal. It's given me lots of hours of challenging game play figuring out how everything works. There is an in-game tutorial, that's fairly helpful, and there are lots of blogs and youtubes explaining game play. Fun, but not for beginners!
Summary: But very detailed almost to a fault. Routing lines is tedious and there seems to be a steep learning curve.. I only played for a few hours but never really made any progress.. Haven't played much more than that..this is good for Micromanagers..I prefer something a little more on the Macro side.
Summary: Overall I found the game entertaining and engaging (full disclosure: transportation engineer), however there were some problems- mostly that it tended to crash fairly often, with the corollary that there was no auto-save. There was also no "undo" button which is sometimes frustrating because building subways can at times be rather frustrating. Otherwise though, it was rather enjoyable.
Summary: Incredible detailed simulation, unfortunately even too complex, slow even on high performance imac, so many things to set and manage.... and launch trough steam... no nice icon on desktop. Still worth to try even if you'll just watch your buses running in the night city.
Summary: This is a somewhat early impression review, but after playing it regularly for a few days, I thought a review was needed, pointing out the good and bad points of the game so far. I will try to hit the major differences between CiM1 and other issues. The first thing you will see, of course, is the graphics. They are clean and sharp, but not outstanding, especially for the load they put on a graphics card.
Summary: Ok, so I just downloaded this game and after about an hour of play I had to stop. I'm going to try this on a different machine and see if it runs any better, but as is I can't play it. I love what I've played so far and thats why I rated it 3 stars, but it's SO SLOW I can't handle it. I have a desktop sitting in my basement running windows 95 that runs faster than this game and I'm not even joking about that.
Summary: It is a very neat game but needs that extra push to be great. The game should have included road and highway infrastructure. You can build train tracks why not new roads? Also cities should be dynamic and evolve as you play. If one area is right next to easy transport around the city or to certain parts of the city the area should reflect that through high demand and growth.
