Summary: Loved SimCity until the last version. CitiesXL is a great alternative to the classic series. None of the horrible DRM nor the online play but filled with absolutely beautiful city elements. It is a lot of fun.
Summary: It's like SimCity 1 and 3 but you have to trade and people don't move in/out as fast as SimCity. You do not connect to another city next door it's like SimCity deluxe/limited but no transportation leading into the city it's like simcity3. You setup RCI like in SimCity 1 The people in Cities XL Platinum and 2011 are very clicky just like in SimCity. God forbid you forget to give them water. THE LOAD SPEED IS GREAT.
Summary: Get the download version for 10.00 And that is all this game is worth is 10.00! When i play i feel like im being rushed between building houses and then building work places for citizens and then building more houses.
