I have been a fan of build and manage games ever since Populous came out on the Amiga, after that came Sim City (they were both relased 1989) and then kinda got tired of them or should I say, i grew up, Sim City got more bells and whistles, Monster invasion and crap never appealed to me.

Cities XL Plat is a hardcore city building game, it's realistic to the point nothing in a city can ever be stagnant or it fades away, the better the city the faster the problems, trying to fix to many issues, gets you new ones.

As many of these games its about keeping a balance and anticipating where once you grow your new problems will arise.

I read some negative reviews cant say I agree with any of them, as a city building game its really fun and probably has 50-100 hours of gameplay before you feels it has nothing more to give you, Sim City has more bells and whistles, but this game has hardcore realism, it reminds me of Banished.

Stability i am not sure about, no problems at all so far, intel/nvidia, nothing special.

While this game is certainly good, it is rather broken. Watch out when you save, the "save" menu actually seems to revert your save. Just exit the game when you are done playing.

After the big disappointments the last 2 Sim Cities were this game is just what you need to scratch that city planning/building inch. Once you get the hang of it, and understand how the supply/demand and resources work in this game you are set to do pretty much anything you want. The mode where you can handpick any buildings is the best part IMHO, something I always wished vanilla Sim City 4 had.

A good game, and fun from the very start of gameplay. The tutorials are very good at explaining how to use MOST of the features, however some require some experimentation to be able to master. Overall, a good game, however the optimisation is not the best, and the game can get very slow with framerates when you start to get larger cities. I would say that this game is better than a possible alternative Sim City 2013, of which I have played for a considerable time more than 100 hours. This game has got one way streets, a vast range of landmarks, and a good menu structure, and I would recommend it to all people who like city planning or building simulators. I would give the game a 6.5/10 due to the lack of optimisation overall.

Its a great game, however with the huge memory leaks, the longer you play (or load a long playted map) the worse the lag gets, eventually it will just chain crash.

Started using 2 gigs, ended when it maxed out my 16 =\

Only bought because the latest SimCity looked so ♥♥♥♥. And no, it didn't scrath the itch. Feels like one of those games you can't really lose (unless you really make a mess). The game isn't especially innovative either - just feels very genric of the genre. Infastructure's the only thing resembling a challenge. Still no biggy - just build more of it, or build outwards to speard the load, or maybe sprinkle some public transport on. The game doesn't get much wrong, but it doesn't much right either. The novelty dies quickly, and if you've watched some 'let's plays' of it on YouTube, you've probably already extracted most of the enjoyment this title has to offer.

Do not buys this, no matter what it costs. A generally disapointing game, from the dated graphics to overly complicated GUI. I wish I could get a refund, because I would.

If you don't have anything to buy save your money. I made the idiotic mistake of buying this instead of spending it on f*ck*ng Tomb Raider 2013 GOTY IF I WAITED 2 MORE F*CK*NG DAYS!!!!! Don't be the guy that has about 130 and only plays 30-40 of them. Don't make the same mistake as me.

I'll just check it out, I said. I'll just give it a quick run, and see how it is.

9 hours later, 4:30am, 'nuff said. Fantastic city building sandbox.

The only thing i seem to take issue with is the game's bugginess. Somehow, someway, i managed to convince omnicorp to send me all their money for nothing in return. however nice having a stockpile of cash in the billions of dollars, this brings into question how the game fully measures how much your city produces and is able to efficiently exchanged, knowing how past cities always collapsed even with trade amongst other cities illustrates how part of the economics function of the game needs some tweeking. other than that, the growth of the city is always fun and the visuals are quite impressive

Bought it, error code, Did research my computer does not support a 800x600 Res which this game apparently needs to run soo waste of 8 bucks tried a lot of forums and fixes to no avail I loved the game when I played it at my buddies its worth it but only if you don't have the same problem I do. I'm pretty sure there is no fix for this as it is quite time consuming and every computer is different so getting the correct advice is hard
