Summary: Cities XL 2012 is mediocre if anything. There is plenty to do in the game, but it’s also frustrating. If you love building stuff in games then you may want to check it out, provided you can get it at a reduced price.
Excerpt: There is just one, tiny, problem with Cities XL 2012 . It is essentially the same game as Cities XL 2011 …which was essentially the same game as Cities XL . The only real difference is that there are a number of new buildings and maps available this time around.
Conclusion: My answer for those who played the previous games is no - unless you’re absolutely hurting for a city simulation and management title. If you’ve never played either of the two previous Cities XL titles this is a much better value proposition and more worth your time – as long as you understand this...
Excerpt: So, for those who don't know, Cities XL is a city building based game. There have been two releases until now: Cities XL and Cities XL 2011 . Now, a third sequel is on the way - Cities XL 2012 .
Conclusion: So after 6-7 hours of play, you’re left with a stark choice. Either abandon the city you’ve invested to much time in to go and create another city and start all over again, or find a map type that facilitates *all* of the various essentials that make up modern life and give it another go.
Summary: "Cities XL 2012 ist eine recht gelungene Fortsetzung der berühmten Aufbausimulation. Die Neuerungen sind jedoch marginal und jeder Spieler sollte selbst entscheiden, ob er für eine einfache "Erweiterung" nochmals den Vollpreis bezahlen möchte.
