With the rise of Cities:Skylines, this game became rather redundant, since C:S not only offers the same features, but more.

A great little city builder game. Was kind of hard to get started at first. It is very easy to go broke, even on the easier settings, but after watching a few toturials online, I figured out how to make more money. This is a very basic game, even a bad city building game like Sim City had way more feautres. One big plus about this game, there is tons of room and you are not limited to a small square like you are with Sim City. Cool game to get if you have a weekend and nothing to do.

Not really platinum, better than SimCity, not City Skylines. Buy this game from other sites with a discount, not worth 19.99 euros.

I`m writing this review by comparing Simcity and Cities XL Platinum (yeah not the best deal).

Positive
- more space for expansion
- no dlc`s
- no stress with internet connection, Simcity servers some times fails to sync correctly
- the street view is way better

Almost Negative
- by default is a single core game and it lags, but there is a workaround for this, found on Game Debate written by Paulo Proenca on 02 August 2011
http://www.game-debate.com/news/?news=928&game=Cities%20XL%202011&title=CITIES%20XL%202011%20-%20MULTI-CORE%20SOLUTION

Step 1: Open the task menu. (ctrl+alt+delete)

Step 2: Go to the "Process" Tab.

Step 3: Locate the process "CitiesXL_2011.exe"

Step 4: Press the right button of your mouse and select the option "Set afinity".

Step 5: Chose only the first core and press "ok".

Step 6: Do Step 3 again but this time select ALL the cores.


Cities XL 2011 should now take advantage of all cores. It's freaky but it works. Happy city building!
Notes: This might also work for other games with this bug.


Negative
- saving the game to steam cloud is a bit slowly.

While this game has the potential to be great, the controls and the gameplay could be much much better than they are. I look forward to playing this game more in the future, but if I could go back in time I would keep my $20.

Casual city building game, I like it. The difficulty is not compareable even to plain old first SimCity. The big advantage of this game is that the interface is better and there are lots of statistics to analyse.

One big disadvantage is the poor localization into german. The translation itself is good. Problematic it that most of the translated texts are longer than the original ones and simply get cut off before the end because the boxes they are written in are too small. Luckily I found out the game can be switched to english language via the steam menu.

Apart from that there are still some annoying bugs existing: Residential area building state they are not connected to roads although the area and the surrounding roads were created automatically with the corresponding tool. Weird.

I'd give this game a rating of 65/100.

I don't usually do a pro/con list for my reviews, but in this case, I feel like whether or not you should by Cities XL should be dependent on how you feel about four key points.
Good:
+Great graphics (for a city-builder)
+You can make your city HUUUUGE. Like, your metropolis actually looks like a metropolis. I'm not kidding when I say that your city can reach a NYC level of scale (though not population-wise, since it does that thing that all city-builders do where it makes population way lower than it seems your city should be able to accomadate).
Bad:
-I'm only exagerrating a little bit when I say that it has the depth of a mobile city-builder. There's virtually no challenge from the get-go and I was almost expecting to have to tap buildings for coins.
-When your city gets to a certain size, the game will start to struggle with processing everything and you'll get lag. Personally, the lag I dealt with was nothing too bad, but I didn't grow my city as much as other people did before I got bored and stopped playing; I heard many people say that the lag gets unbearable at a certain point.

Those are the four main points, the things that'll really make you either like or dislike it. I know you see the red thumbs down, but I'm not not recommending it, per se. If you think the pros outweigh the cons, then you should totally buy it. I wouldn't have recommended this game to my past self however, because this game is a little too shallow for my taste.

A fun city building game to play, I realy like it due to the fact that it saves your cities you make in the cloud after you are done playing, you can trade goods with other cityies aslong as they have A profit, one of the main thing that I do and don't like is that you can cheat right from the main menu in the game - thus adding 500,000 cash and all buildings items and then some + you can add 10 tokens thus making fast city building if you know how to play the game right, I think of it like a sims type game

Don't let my low amount of time on this game fool you; it's basically the same game as its previous iterations; this is just the one now solely available on Steam. I put dozens of hours into the 2012 edition and got this for about three bucks.

Now then, that said. Is this game anywhere near as good as Cities: Skylines (my 2015 Game of the Year)? Of course not. Not by half. But there's more to it than that.

See, XL has one thing Skylines doesn't; a beautifully interconnected resource economy that makes building specialized cities so much more rewarding. You can build a breadbasket city on a map with a ton of fertile land, an oil town, a manufacturing center, a tourist paradise...and the oversupply in one city is demand in another. Is the trading sim as robust as Grand Ages Medieval or any of Gaming Minds' maritime trade sims? No, but it's not supposed to be.

Skylines is the builder I reach for when I'm after a "classic" SimCity-like experience. I go for XL when I want to build something on a bigger scale, more like a nation than a city (in that sense, "XL" is an appropriate word for it. Extra-large, indeed.)

As I write this, it's on sale for four bucks. Anything from about $7 downward is a good value proposition for any game in this series. It's not as good as Skylines (not much is), but it's still worth playing for what it gets right.

This is one of the best city simulations out there, especially when looking strictly at games with good graphics. That said, it is not without its flaws.

The Good:
- Lots and lots of replayability. You could get lost in this game on just a single city for weeks.
- Your cities interact with each other to an extent. You can trade things like water, fuel, industry, and office services amongst the cities you create. This allows you to specialize your cities, such as creating an industry giant that feeds industry goods to your cities where you want to avoid polution, such as a resort town.
- You can point and click your way through everything. Given how many options you have for roads, buildings, etc, the menu is easy to use and allows for quick access to everything.
- The game feels like a semi-sandbox during normal play, as there isn't really many restrictions in place (and you can switch the building restrictions off in the settings).
- As you build up your city, you get to a point where you realize it isn't just about building anymore. Management becomes a much bigger deal. One of the biggest management challenges is transportation, and that adds something to the game that I find quite enjoyable, making it a bit deeper than it might look on the surface.

The Bad:
- Some of the mechanics for laying out streets (especially bridges) and buildings can make things a bit frustrating.
- The whole Cities XL series are just reboots. They look the same, play the same, and feel the same. This makes for a bit of a hidden "good" I guess in that you shouldn't feel the need to own them all (I do and don't have any reason to play any of the previous ones).
- They removed the online function that the original had, rather than making it work. The idea of being able to have cities existing in a "truly global" world definitely had an appeal.
- The developer is lazy. The failure to make online work, some small problems and unfinished features, and the mechanics that are still issues still unaddressed after so much time just speaks to the lack of care the developer has for its work and reputation. They did "fix" things to a point where they weren't really game-breaking, but it still sits in my mind that they seem to want to skate by at this point (especially given how much effort they put into trying to create a great alternative to another "CitySim" game).

If you really like city management/builder games, this gives a good balance between the two and should be able to keep your entertained for quite a while. If you can catch it on a sale, then great! If not, you just need to decide what your dollar is worth. As far as putting a dollar value on fun, you have to do that for yourself, but even with the flaws, the value was definitely there for me given how much entertainment I have gotten from it. Decidedly beats spending the money on gas, a ticket, and some overpriced popcorn and soda at a movie theater for me.

+/+ Graphics are great for a city building game.
+/+ Most game mechanics are well executed.
+/+ Great UI. Very easy to pick up and learn.
+/+ Cities can interact (i.e. trade) with each other. This allows you to create specialty cities.
+/+ Large maps.

+/- Not as difficult as SimCity 4.
+/- Not much different than previous Cities XL games.
+/- Includes Steam Cloud, but lacks other features such as achievements and the workshop.

-/- Lack of variety in graphic style.
-/- Not map editor or terraforming options.
-/- Roads & highways can sometimes very picky about how you place them.
-/- Game slows down once your city reaches a certain size (very processor heavy game).
-/- Developers have a bad reputation and have gone out of business. Don’t expect new patches.
-/- Unfixed bugs and broken features.

Verdict: 6.8/10. While Cities XL Platinum clearly fails to surpass SimCity 4, it does offer a unique and fun take on the city building/management genre. If you can put up with the late game slowdowns or don’t care about creating larger cities, then I can easily recommend Cities XL Platinum to you. If you expect more, you will be disappointed. Don’t spend more than $10 and you’ll likely be happy.

Update 9/7/15: Buy Cities Skyline if you want a city builder. This game is no longer worth considering.

i increased my score a couple point to try to offset the trolls and griefers that wrongfully malign this otherwise great game. and while its not worth a 10 its definitively not a 0!. i would say about a 7 and with all the stuff on xlnation.net perhaps an 8!

please understand that this game has a bit of history. over 4 years ago a small company named monte cristo developed and released it as massively multiuser online game. unfortunately less than a year after they went broke due to low subscription rate and were unable to finish the game. soon after focus acquired the writes and reworked it as a single player offline game and released it. since then making minor fixes and about once a year they have been releasing new content dlcs.

as you can imagine the people who originally purchased and subscribed to cities xl unlimited edition, the mmo version from the now bankrupt developer, are ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off that they got stuck with a dead game after only being able to play with it for such a short time.

so they troll steam forums and even this site complaining about the long defunct developers and about long ago fixed bugs and basically spooking people away from buying the game.

many do not even own or play this game, they just own the other game and since the servers have all been shutdown for that game long ago can't no longer play it. yet they refuse to upgrade to this game, basically wanting the new developers to basically give them the new game.

here check out the facts for yourself
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cities_XL

i own and play just about every city sims/builders that is out there

this is great game, loads of fun, runs great, have played it for hundreds of hours.

even better if you go to xlnation.net you will find hundreds of mods for it, everything imaginable and a very active community over 40,000 members!

i also want to say that there is no serious memory leak or programming issue like some people are posting. what issue that people are having is that the game allows you to build huge i mean huge cities, ive seen some with population over 90M and basically they do not set limits other than the hardware you have. so as you add more and more buildings and roads and the cities get larger and more complex sure its going to use more and more memory until you run out of memory and until your cpu/gpu cant handle the size of the cities and complexity and the framerate goes down. It's hard to put in words just how large and complex your cities can get, they can look so real that you can't distinguish screenshots from real world images of some of the worlds largest cities. in fact i cant think of a real world single city that has a population of over 90M. so what you have a people with low end hardware trying to build cities they can't support. and since its a 32-bit application, like most games, the cities can only get so large and complex before you hit the 2-3gb limit that windows imposes. the trick is to balance city size and complexity and not try to build cities that don't make sense and would not be practical even in real life.

so yes the game is a 32-bit game with the game logic running in a single thread, but most other games out there have the same limitations. the only difference between those games and this game is that this game does not impose limits on you like simcity or tropico or anno does. also this games lets u pack the density of the cities to real world levels and beyond. in this way its more a city builder than a sim i would say.

having said that the game, like all other games and software, does have bugs and issues, but luckily they are for minor and can easily be ignore of worked around.

This game has the potential to be far greater than SimCity ever could be, considering EA's corporate greed holds it back so much these days. It features enormous cities and very easy-to-use interface systems to create a city EXACTLY the way you want it to look even with road-following decorations and multiple ways to plop out zones, then zooming in and "walking" around if you so desire - the level of detail is astounding, and I've personally been playing this series since it's predecessor, City Life, came out back years ago. The game has a major downside though - it's outdated 2005 graphics engine is a 32 bit engine not optimized for multi-core. No matter how good your PC is, the game is limited to only using 1 core and up to 4 gigs of ram - 2 gigs by default, editing the config file is needed to crank 4. This means large cities on even the toughest PCs will lag like all hell, while your PC shows virtually no sign of wear, often running far below 20% of max capacity. Community guides even state you have to quit and reload the game every hour and possibly even change your graphics settings far below what your computer should be able to support just to keep it running in larger cities.

Specs arent the issue for those of you claiming I have a bad computer - I run a hex core 3.5 ghz intel i7, have 64 gigs of ram, and 2 nvidia titans, and yet I clock as little as - well, 0 FPS at times. I have also tried it on a laptop running a quad core 2.7 ghz i7 with 32 gigs of ram and a GTX 680M with the same issues.

I will recommend this game, but be cautious. This game gets insanely difficult, and fast. Once you get access to basic utilities, like water, power, and oil, it can be so easy to bankrupt your city by trying to offer all of these to your city at once. This game runs on supply and demand. If you're producting a lot of oil, and your city can't pay for it (not that your city won't demand it; they just won't be able to pay for it), your city will lose money by extracting more oil than what it can pay for. This goes with about a dozen different resources the game takes into account. You can also have not enough resources. This makes things rather complicated, because you will always run into a scenario in which your city needs more resources than it can pay for, even if you trade with other cities.

Your city will always be plagued with problems once you get to a significant population. Traffic is always a problem. Always. There is no way to really mend the traffic problem. The tourism also really doesn't make much sense to me.

However, I recommend this game because it's kind of realistic. You can't make everyone happy. You can't "pre-plan" your city by making interstates in a town with 200 population. You have to build your city up and then create those, causing you to have to re-route traffic and demolish structures so you can work on your interstate system, which is a headache I bet most leaders in transportatioon have. You will have to have a ghetto and also a rich population. Your citizens will get bored. The game is also beautiful and zooming into ground level gives a lot of awesome views.

Nice graphic, not bad gameplay, awful optimization, so just when your city grows(and it happens over 5-6 hours), playing becomes impossible. Despite the hardware you have. It just will lag. And nothing can be done with it, nobody plans to patch it. Every year this game is sold with great discount, and naive customers throw out their money. So I highly warn you against purchasing this game.

Picked this game up in a humble bundle for a few bucks, and man am I glad I did. After the disappointment of Sim City 5, this game totally scratches the itch. A bit less tedious, and has a very impressive feature of zooming down to street level instantly to see what the city looks like from the citizen's view. Pleasantly surprised to find Sim City has a successor.

I'd love to give this a thumbs up, here is why I won't:

The game is great! Its fun, realistic, and you can create economies. Its definitely the best city simulator I have played.
But. And this is a big butt (*snigger*)

Its so bugged and glitched out that after a little while it becomes impossible to play. Too many aspects of the game have bugs that are game breaking. For instance (and this is the most frusturating) after a while, trading with the AI company is beyond worthless, its actually harmful to trade with them because the glitch makes it that you have to pay to get rid of your goods, as if they were plague infested. I don't mean pay as in like a tarriff, I mean as in you pay as much to sell your good as they should to buy it. If you can't trade you can't expand, and if you can't expand the game is done.

Fun, but broken. Please fix. Until then, don't buy this game.

Cities XL is a great city builder, if you're willing to deal with lag. Short and sweet, this game is what SimCity 2013 should have been, released a year earlier. The game scales extremely well, allowing for truly MASSIVE cities to be build. It has a billion different building types, large amount of road variations, and entirely different themes for all of them, depending on where you want to build.

Now, that's all great, other than the fact the actual developer for the game is dead and long gone. It's got the same problems cities XL 2010 had, and will continue to have them forever. Those problems are potentially game breaking for anyone willing to invest a lot of time. The major bug that gets near everyone is the fact it's single threaded. The game will not use more than one core on your computer, so no matter how well the rest of your system is, a large city will cripple you to single digit frame rates.

There are a few other much more minor bugs that people complain about, however I haven't come across. Overall, I find the game to be very satisfactory. I've gotten pretty large cities before the single digits hit, and even then it's still fairly easy to play. For a veteran and novice to city building alike, I highly recommend this game for at least a short try. It's just a shame there is no more development on it.

Incredibly detailed and complex city planning and management game. Not for everyone. For those who wish to build a dream city with all the challenges of managing a city, or for civil planning student, this can be quite rewarding, watching your city grow.

One draw back, however - the check point system. Once an earlier check point is loaded, it automatically erase all progress after that point and overwrite any later check point, forcing you to start again from that point. It also doesn't help that it is quite easy to accidently load a check point, causing many wasted hours.

Get Cities: Skylines instead of this. Don't get Cities XXL either, from what i've heard, its the same exact game as this one.
