"A decent transportation simulation game. Has some issue for many people and you could also just instead play Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe."

Cities in Motion 2: European Vehicle Pack - Now RELEASED

Cities in Motion 2: European Vehicle Pack
THE WHEELS ON THE BUS GO ROUND & ROUND Pack yourself in one of five new vehicles inspired by the efficiency of large European cities and designed to keep your cities in motion. These new vehicles are not only easy on the eye, but they ride like a seamless untroubled dream. Jump on and experience the thrill of Jubilee GL and Roadmaster 2000. The Roadmaster is a modern classic and a very recognizable one with its two-storey build and red colour scheme. The GL might be slow on the turn, but makes up for that with fuel efficiency and low maintenance. For those who like to stay the course whilst being partial to rails, there is the City 26 tram, with its very low fuel consumption. For larger masses, try out the Galaxie HK metro train, or when your system serves huge amounts of people, head straight for the Musketeur 01. The Musketeur 01 has a sophisticated, sturdy and steel design that offers much despite its large fuel consumption. Become the conductor. Do the locomotion!

Much better than the original Cities in Motion, which was complete ♥♥♥♥ and very hard to make a profit on (even on Easy mode). Cities in Motion 2 has much better graphics, improved laying of tram and commuter rails including the option of elevated tracks. Routes can become crowded quite quicky if they are long distance and become popular, and it does take a while to work out the best solution to minimise delays and make better profits allowing you to invest back into improving your network.

The multiplayer has an odd few bugs depending on saves between those playing but all of this can be fixed each time by sending the save file to the rest of the party. Other than that it is great fun and adds alot to a genre of "Transport Tycoon" strategy games that no other has before.

This game sucks. Everything sucks in this game. I wasted 19.99 because i didn't listened to the others' reviews. The controls are really frustrating and the tutorial is long as hell. Also graphics are bad. Watch gameplays before buying this game, it may change your mind. I will never recommend this game to the others.

Nice game, if you like traffic. The citizens have realistic behaviour. It is challenging to transport them as fast as possible to their homes, their work or their leisure places. The graphics are not very good but in my opinion that's not very important.
Short version; this game is worth trying.

One and a half year after its release, this game is still so full of bugs that I simply cannot play it. It crashes all the time, it uses the wrong aspect ratio, and the camera prefers to fly around like crazy and point towards the sky.

If I by accident manage to get the camera where I can see something, I try to build a transportation system. But the time system is extremely broken - travelling one hundred meters by bus takes a few hours. This makes it impossible to make any traffic planning work at all and takes the fun out of the game.

Good game but significantly more difficult than the original cities in motion (which is also a great game by the way).

If you like stuff like railroad tycoon, you are pretty sure to like this.
If you dont like particularly complicated stuff, I would suggest you have a shot at the original cities in motion game, as this one introduces fare zones, weekly and other tickets as well as the requirement to have actual depots and timetables.

This game is quite interesting. If you ever wanted to manage a fleet of busses, a group of metro trains, trolleys, or ferries, this game is for you. Saying that, it is not without it's flaws. The ticket prices are slightly finnicky, as they fluctuate randomly, and trying to find a patern for how they do so is harder than vector calculus. Sometimes, if you have a bus stop near an intersection, and the bus turns left, it will split. Not a major bug, but a pesky little graphical error. Despite its downfalls, it is an interesting game. I do recommend it to those looking for a transport sim, as it is overall a good game.

Good:
1) I liked the concept of designing public transportation
2) The graphics are okay, I guess.

Bad:
1) The user interface was so horrible that I quickly lost interest in the game. All the blocks look like each other and I basically just got lost on the map.
2) There's lots of micromanagement that seemed really uninteresting. Not my cup of tea.
3) So much wastes potential.

After playing it for a few hours I sadly had to reinstall the first one to get back to having fun. Depsite some very neat improvements (organic growth, price zones, constructing streets), some major issues plague this game especially an awfull user interface (managing schedule was supposed to be a pro of this version not a con) makes it much less fun to play. I can't wait for a Cities in motion 3 that would take the best of the first two.

I'm very amazed that there's an game that you can manger an transport network in 3D and the there's loads of good sides to this game like and i know they can be some bad ones like but still i find this game very funny like as iv seen roads even the 5-6 street roads and the traffic is so dam high your just be lucky to get an tram line network between them and you think on how much people would be sitting on there ♥♥♥ in there cars waiting to go to work or back home but there going to take longer due to to much traffic so what would you do, Would you wait in the Traffic for god knows how long or would you take the tram network that only takes like 1 hour or longer or even shorter but this will depend on the player its self so remember on what it says that players choice will effect the city growth so keep that in mind like and what iv found witch is odd but i don't know if anyone here has this error but me and my friends where trying to play an online game but the maps iv made witch they had it would not let them play it and even then they had all the DLC but only i had some of them but yet if you go on the game maps its self it was working fine for some time until another error come on like so i can see that's an bad point to the gameplay like but up to now iv had nothing wrong with the full game its self like, The single player works fine but its just the online gamepaly thing like so really here is my points of this game

the good Points

Signal player works 100% fine and there's no errors and the game runs smooth depending on what software you have.

The Map editor works 50% Avg and why some times it will lag an lot and no matter what software you have as mine is an windows 8.1 and it some times lags on me.

The graphics are 100% life like and it feels so real when you walk around the city streets and all the Detail in it now that's what you need to make an real life 3d game effect.

The Bad Points

the map editor with Online gameplayer it can lag an lot making your game crash or glitch an hell of a lot.

Windows 7/8.1 they both do the same thing in the good Point but the bad point its just not strong for online gameplay

Watch out for the annoying traffic as this can impact your transport network very easy

A game remniscent of Transport Tycoon. I find the 3D doesn't help much in this case, and would still favor good old Transport Tycoon Deluxe. Still, a pretty decent game.

Looks interesting at a glance, but don't buy this game...
If you want a management-transport game, take a look at "Cities in Motion 1" instead.

The only gripe I had with CiM1 was that vehicles on the same line tend to end up together instead of spread out. In all other aspects, it was an enjoyable management game. CiM2 is not.

Cities in Motion 2 is like Cities in Motion, but with MOAR DLC!!!
In all seriousness, thouhg, it's an RTS about maintaining a transport system in a city with limited cash and resources*. Buses, trolleybuses, trams, trains and boats will pave the way to fame for your city...'s transportation system.

This game's tutorial is possibly worse than the one in Driver on the PlayStation. I can't even begin to explain where they went wrong. Seriously, just google how to play the game. Some random polish bloke could do a better job at showing people how to play the game than CiM2, which tells you to just build a metro without telling you, well, how to build the metro.
Next, trying to get the vehicles going is a ♥♥♥♥take. I'd have an easier time keeping Chuck Norris captive using only a roll of gaffatape and and a defunct N64. Make a line, buy vehicles, assign stops to the line, stick the vehicles to the line's depot (which by the way is mandatory) and only then are you lesss than 3 steps away from getting a line going.

Once you get all of this going, and everything begins to spludge into shape, there's a beautifully crafted RTS involving transporting the masses on a train which kind of looks like a pelican bird while maintaining cash and the what nots that are needed. Sadly, though, it's overcrowded by quicly slapped together tutorials, horrid gameplay systems, and an overall unpleasant experience.

The only good things I can think about mostly revolve around graphics and the effeciancy system which makes you build these systems as effeciently as possible, otherwise people will just drive or walk there.

Verdict: Buy Prison Architect instead.
4/10. It's not very not all that not good.

PS: Also, this game is very empty on content without any DLC packs. Oh yay.**
A note to Admiral Denbigh: Get this out of your wishlist. Pronto.

*With the resources being cash. The only thing that really stops you in this game is how bulky your pockets are.
**That's a sin of video gaming. Oh dear.

I'm not terribly familar with this genre. All I can say is that I found the UI horribly cumbersome. It is free, so if you're interested, check it out. All I know is I got frustrated with it while I was collecting Steam cards.

Bought this and installed on ubuntu 14.04, the fonts are terrible, the graphics below average even on the highest quality settings, and the controls make the game unplayable (rotation is really really fast and it makes the game get stuck after 1-2 seconds).
