Got this on Steam last night ($35 I think). Only had a quick game so far. Had a few people say that this game is what we really wanted Sim City 5 to be. After looking forward to SIm City 5, I never really played it because the environments were too small and there wasn't really much interaction between districts.

I got this game earlier in the week. Its incredible. Its just incredible how awesome this is compared to SimCity. I love its scale and its ability to change depending on the environment. The water reactions remind me of that game Dust(if anyone remembers) o the 360. I think it was a PC game too. I love how you can download other peoples maps too. I started to able in editing and creating my own. I made a basic Auckland and I will try to complete it soon. I've only just started so its very rough and basic.
What are your thoughts since you wrote this?

I bought it in October or something last year, but had to upgrade my PC to play it. Even now it still has framerate issues or something, but have only played it a couple of times so far. Not really much of a PC gamer, usually stick to consoles.
But yeah, i didn't buy the final SimCity game, as i too didn't like how the city was separated into 'blocks' connected by a road or two - having a 'block' filled with high rises looks completely wrong when you fill the space up then there's a big gap of nothingness until the next block. It completely ruins the 'city' feel as nowhere in the real world is it replicated.
Cities: Skylines looks better than SimCity ever has, and i love how you can change the view angle/height and have extremely curved roads etc.
I still love the SC games, with the exception of the last, but C:S is the new king. Wish i found a patch to stop the Crash To Desktop bugs in SimCity 4 though, tried tonnes of different things.
