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?

Ub3r bump.

 

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.
