"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!

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.

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.

There is definitley depth to this game, so anyone who likes getting deep into the game systems and learning how they work will get some enjoyment out of this title. However, the simulation is just not up to snuff and it becomes apparent fast, which breaks immersion (if you're looking for that kind of stuff). There are a lot of controls but half of them are so obscured under other controls and options that navigating the UI is about as easy as finding a needle in a haystack! Overall, I would recommend this only if you really want to play a transport sim and you've gotten your fill of all the others out there (but i doubt there are too many of you that fit that statement).

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.

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.

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).

it's a really good idea, but the game itself is just bad. I played Cities XL 2012, all simcities, bot cities in motion, and cities in motion is really the worse. Don't play it

Gigantic, impersonal cities in a uniform shade of grey. No sense of history or being somewhere. I liked the original better because you got to inteact with the cities through time, and participate in their stories. This sequel has no soul.

This game is great for those of us who enjoy just to manage the transport aspect of a city, and for those of us who love efficiency. The game is not a city builder in the traditional sense--you can build roads and expand your cities around them, but that isn't the primary focus of the game. That being said, there are some pretty serious challenges to the game, and the mechanics as well. I do have several concerns with the game in general, but I'll get to those in a bit.

Here's a breakdown:

The good: Seriously challenges you to be efficient
Engine is good
Large variety of possibilites, you can make your own city, workshop is available too
Variety of transportation methods
Building engine is easy to use and cool


Bad:
Game is DLC-Based
Stops are not realistic, vehicles leave without being full when peopple are obviously running to the stop
Cars are stupid: they do not take advantage of multiple lanes going to the same place
Height of buildings are not realistic.
When building new roads, game is prone to developing tons and tons of elementary and high schools, forcing the player to demolish them so houses can be built.
People are stupid: all vehicles yield to them.
Traffic lights make no sense
No easy way to make central hubs.

All you really need to get money in a game is one good Metro line, then you can just hit fast forward for tons of money.
I like the game, but it gets boring and repetitive very quickly. Even with all of the DLC, it's really easy to just fall into the same rut ovver and over again. The game does a good job for those of us who enjoy city management, but the content of the game itself leaves a ton to be desired.

I do not reccommend the game to any of my friends.

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.
