Cities in Motion 2 is the sequel to the popular mass transit simulation game Cities in Motion. Build, manage and lead your transportation network to provide cities with their ever changing needs. CIM2 introduces new features including multiplayer game modes, day and night cycles, timetables and dynamic cities.

Affordable transportation brings middle class housing and work places, while more expensive and exotic choices bring high end businesses.

This game is awesome! It has a few quirks, and is artificially difficult in "normal" mode, but it is still playable, once you learn how to use the Metros.

I tend to play it with my own rule set in sandbox mode, and I use that same ruleset in multiplayer mode with a close friend. As a result, a "day" lasts six hours! o.O

We enjoy the game for it's challenge, and yet the relaxed atmosphere and pace.

This game is great fun to play alone and even more fun to play with a friend in coop mode. But: The game is very limited in its options and gets boring and repetitive very soon. Also lots of sync-bugs prevent you from playing the multiplayer properly. I really enjoyed the coop mode, but you always only have a very limited time to play before the game totally craps you up.

WARNING: If you play this game in multiplayer over a longer period of time, you'll always get out of sync without any chance to get back. Your coop-partner may build lines but you don't see them and also other important data (like the time of the day, your money, your company value and your weekly income) is totally off for you and your partner. Saving and loading the game again does NOT help to fix this! (Edit: Turns out you can manually end the game, let the host send you the savefile and then load it again to enjoy another few minutes of synced multiplayer gaming until it gets out of sync again. It's still very annoying though, you kinda have to spend half your playing time to manually keep the game synced...)

Do I recommend this game? If this was a beta version: Totally yes! Unfortunatelly the options and variety of this game are very limited and it's totally bugged (at least the multiplayer) and there is very little chance that there are any updates still being made to this game, so it's not really worth its price.

All in all: Great concept, great ideas, bad implementation.
Stay away from this game and eventually hope for a sequel to make a better implementation of this great game concept.

I am a fan of the first installment of Cities in Motion and did not hesitate to buy number two. I was kind of disappointed. The fun of the real-world cities has been replaced with a big soulless city. I did not really get the hang of the new mechanics, it was a bit more difficult than Cities in Motion 1. If you are expecting the kind of arcade-style game play of Cities in Motion 1 I would not recommend this game. Also what is going on with the prices for the DLC? They are so expensive! If you are like me not a hardcore traffic simulation lover, I would stick with Cities in Motion 1.

This game has one of the worst tutorials I've ever come across. It leaves the majority of the game completely unexplained, and the parts that it does cover are barely touched upon. For a game this complex, it's absolutely inexcusable. I know there's a great game here somewhere, but it shouldn't be my job to trawl through guides and videos to learn how to play it properly. This is basic stuff.

I'd love to recommend this because the original Cities in Motion is amazing. However the sequal just doesn't measure up somehow. The cities, which are all absolutely vast, lack character and feel largely homogenous; building routes is a bit more awkward with the requirement for depots; and the variable-height metro systems are awkward. Elevated metro lines often float unsupported, and feature teleport booths to travel between ground and platform level.

Avoid. Play the original Cities in Motion instead, it's so much better.
