DISCLAIMER: This is a first impressions review, and NOT a full review, if you want a full review, then please read better reviews then mine

Cities in Motion is a transport tycoon simulation game developed by Colossal Order, the people behind the fantastic Cities: Skylines, however Cities in Motion came out before Cities: Skylines and published by the strategy masters, Paradox Interactive

Cities in Motion is a simulation strategy game in which you run a transportation company in a few realistic countries such as Amsterdam and others such as London sold seperately through DLC. Over the years, starting from the age of transportation, roughly 1930 onwards and you have a choice of either buses, trams, metro, ferries or helicopters and with the more money you make the more transport services you can add

Overall the game is fun and challenging, however, I do feel that there were certain gameplay functions that were needed in this game but were added in its sequel, Cities in Motion 2. Also, sometimes I feel angry when I can't create the perfect transportation system, however, in the real life, none of the transportation services are perfect

The only thing I would complain about is it's game's performance. Once you add too many things, the game chugs like mad, it looks like the game couldn't handle it. Sometimes even crashing the game and losing your progress thus far, Also, the huge amounts of DLC is kind of ridiculous

However, if you played such classics as Transport Tycoon or you would like to play a game where you manage your own transport company, then Cities in Motion is the game for you!

RECOMMENDED :)

Better than Cim2 but this game is unplayable with mods. And there aren't any decent mods anymore. Stops get too crowded with passagners and then the company repuation gets lower.

Also, trains and buses bunch together after a while even if you space them out evenly, CO tried to fix then in Cim2 but that was a huge disaster.

I got this game for free as a "Mystery Gift" by "♥♥♥♥♥♥♥".

Never expected to be that good, I just played for 3 hours, and if not the in-game (3 Hours Played) pop up achievment I wouldn't even know, and probably keep playing.

This game is super fun, and you won't even mind playing that same map(Campaign) over and over again.

What a great game, never expected.

What to expect
A RTS where you need to manage a public transport company. You need to keep al your customers happy with fast services, while keeping that bankaccount showing black numbers. Watching your metro lines gulping up masses of customers can be very satisfying.

Plus
  • Very detailed cities
  • Plenty of methods of transport
  • Good customer AI
Minus
  • No way to distribute vehicles, making congestion sometimes unavoidable
  • Long loadingtimes

Cities in Motion is a city simulation game, where you build and run a public transportation system in one of several European cities; Helsinki, Vienna, Amsterdam, and Berlin. You build and maintain lines for buses, trams, metro trains, and more. The game has tutorial city where you learn how to build and implement each system of transport, purchase and build various vehicles and stations. The learning curve is fairly low, and you are given wide discretion on where to build your transportation lines. I like the fact that real cities are used, which gives you a basic rundown of each cities landmarks and layout. I would like to see more cities added and I believe the DLC available offers some new cities.

Visually speaking, the game looks a lot like Tycoon City, New York. It has a great deal of detail and is pretty cool to play. I tend to be very particular about the types of simulator games I play, but this one isn't bad at all. I would have liked to be able to manage more than just public transportation, but then again that was the purpose of the game. Thumbs up.

I have mixed feeling about this game. I would say 50/50. My recommendation, jump directly to "City Skylines", which is made by the same publisher. "Cities Skylines" is a much better more complete game. In "Cities in Motion" you only control the transport. And, all your work doesn't have any real impact on the city. The transportation system is well done, but since you don't have full control over the city, your options are limited.

If you've ever been annoyed at public transport, here's one for you. See if you can do better.
Cities in motion is a simulator game where you can be the one to work out the public transport of a city. Sounds easy enough, just some bus lines here and there. A tram line on this road here, and everything is connected.
And then you give it a while, and there's 8 busses waiting for that one bus stop with a waiting line of 250 people. Clearly you didn't think that one through. But that's okay, where a normal job as public transport planner would have you fired for that, here you can try again or fix it somehow. So then you can add subway stations, boats, and helicopters, and before you know it you're covering the city and hours passed.

The interface and controls are easy to learn(If a little odd at times), and the game mechanics are easy enough as well. However, mastering the game mechanics and planning out the city public transport is much harder. You'll have to go through several attempts to figure out what goes wrong and how to fix it, and you may want to take a look at the actual public transport system in your city for ideas.
Edit: Also, it has some inaccuracies. Amsterdam does not look anything like that. And you can just build a subway tunnel under the Berlin wall. Replacing old vehicles is a pain too.

As for the technical details, it's surprisingly good. Every citizen appears to be modeled*(*I didn't count them. at least a large enough amount of them to make the cities feel alive), and you can follow them through their morning commute, shopping trips, and visits to others. And this is all supported by the game mechanics, you can set a citizen as interesting person, and the game will show you a portrait of him where he goes. (Warning: Long) In my latest case, I looked at a factory in Vienna, and found a red car driving from the top of a parking garage(Mentally following it through the roof as it drove down) next to it down to the ground floor and onto the streets. So I asked, why is this person not using the public transport system to work and back? Wilhelm Klein, factory supervisor - Drives by car from his home, connected to the public transport, to work, also connected to the public transport system. He then went shopping at a big department store, which too was connected by public transport.
After that, he went to a church far outside of Vienna, in a smaller village where I did not yet expand to. He then returned home.

I didn't have the money, but I figured I'd have to connect that place somehow when I did get money. So I went on to look around town, just watching people board the bus and go around. After a while, Wilhelm was moving again. Another day at work. This time, he wandered to the tram stop down the street and was quickly picked up by one of the passing trams. He then got out at a connection to the subway, but instead took the bus at that same subway station, and rode it all the way down to work.
A while after, he boarded the bus again and I watched him go back to the tram station for what I assumed to be the way home. But not this time. This time he went into the subway, so I look at his info screen and see his destination is a ministry building near the town center and then back home with a direct tram line. I connect the extra village with a busline, and I speed up time a bit.

When I check back on Wilhelm, he has a new job. He is hired as secretary in the ministry building he went to way back then. Perhaps he couldn't handle his supervisor job at the factory, or perhaps he never really wanted it in the first place.
But either way, Wilhelm is happy now, and he can go with a direct tram line from his home to his work, and from there, anywhere in Vienna he wants.

Mission succesfull, the citizens of Vienna can stay in motion

I spent many MANY hours playing Transport Tycoon, OpenTTD, and both Aerobiz games for the SNES, and this falls into the same vein of transport business simulation. Thankfully, it also lives up to that standard of excellence. It's very easy to grasp some of the core concepts, but it is definitely more difficult to master the game. If you're into business simulations, this is absolutely worth playing.

Brilliant! I've spent more time on it than steam says (offline play) - a lot of it as well. It's a great transport strategy game. The work of a genius, and can run on my laptop with only 6GB RAM and awful everything else. From that point of view, it's even better than number 2. The campaigns are great fun, and challenging, for example, they ask you to build a tube link...but you only really have enough money for a bus route, so do you save up, or hope the line is a success.
Also the ability for custom games, and map creation make this a truly amazing game!

Initially, this game was right up my alley. I am a huge tycoon / sim junkie and I was able to grasp the basics right off the bat.

However, the main issue I have is the sim engine itself is incredibly difficult to work with. To make money, you need to move passengers from point A to B. Optimum lines for doing such tend to be a little too popular and in order to keep up with the demand, you need to add more vehicles. More vehicles clog up the roadways (which don't seem to thin out no matter how many people you have using the public system in the first place), which deceases your efficiency even more. In the midst of this entire mess, you have to constantly babysit your wages and ticket prices as the in-game economy fluctuates. Too high, and your already angry customer base will ignore you completely, leaving you with no income. Too low, and your lines get flooded, which then turns into a rinse and repeat of the first problem.

I managed to successfully beat the first scenario after a countless number of restarts, and I am still hung up on the second after 22 hours of play. In the end, you always end up broke and PO'd unless you did things 100% the way the designers intended. Deviate just a little, and you're toast.

In the end, CiM is just a puzzler pretending to be a sim. Avoid unless you have the Buddha's patience.

It was for me great fun to play this game in the begin - However there is a super enoying bug that will happen eventually in any city with metro trains and renders the whole system unplayable.

Usually in the late stage of the game there will be always an important metro station where trains rediculously will just not leave before they are completely full (which takes very long because they are waiting very long for single people who are just entering the station)!!! This causes heavy jams in front of the stations where trains que up infinetly. People on subsequent stops can hardly enter the train thus get angry. Also you can not add more trains to the line because they will only add to the que in front of this one faulty station

This is messing with the whole (!) metro nework and there is absolutly nothing what you can do about it ...

The bug is known but the developers sadly don't care about it.

Also beware of high CPU Loads and memory leaks. After some time the Game will slow down as hell.

The missions are mostly funny, but instead of encouraging and guide you to build a reasonable network, it rather forces you to build non-profitable lines.
There is in general not much assistance or feedback to understand why your system is working or not as well as the statistics are not so useful.

The mod system is great - very active community.

bottom line: In the beginn it's a good fun to play this game but it lacks long term motivation because of enoying bugs and lack of reasonable feedback.

PS: The screenshots are very misleading about the actual gameplay! Please use google picture search or steam community tab if you want to get a real impression of the game interface.

Paradox were kind enough to gift me this game on their previously owned Gamersgate service for taking part in a survey. I later picked it up in a bundle, so excuse my modest playtime.

The very first transport tycoon game I've ever played, and might as well be the best one. I love all the different eras, the cities, the music...

It's relaxing to watch, challenging to succeed and even tense If you're like me and think along the lines of "go big, or go home!" as that is exactly how imminent bankruptcy SHOULD make you feel.

I particularly love the high metros, like the ones in Chicago or New York.

You need a nice CPU though to avoid lag, anything over 3 ghz would be mighty fine I'd wager.

Also, avoid the sequel.

9/10

This is one of those games that takes a certain kind of player. If you love building and management games than this is a lot of fun. I have played both this and the second Cities in Motions. Both are fun, but in different ways. Cities in Motions 2 offers you a lot more control of how you can lay down your tracks (and roads because the sequel allows you to build your own roads) and now limit you to the four cardinal directions and diagonals. But the cities feel a little bare bones because they just have buildings.

In the first Cities in Motions the cities have train stations, ports, airports, and the roads and highways actually go off map instead of a loop leaving you in this mysterious cities that is completely cut off from the outside world...

Though Cities in Motion 2 compell you to build depots where you buses, trams, and subways which makes repairs and maintainance much easier on you.

While the game play is honetly a little better in the sequel the city feels more alive and real to me in the first game. I actually recommend both, but check out let's plays on youtube to get an idea of them if you want to know what you're getting into.

I had stepped away from CIM afer being dissappointed by CIM 2 unrealistic and minimal cities, cartoonish loading screen and compromised mechanics. I downloaded it again along wth some DLC's and I find myself enjoying it more than ever. Beautiful graphics, excellent mechanics, makes recent games like Train Fever and others primitive at best. If I could just get a bus that holds 500 passengers.......

I marvelled as I had finally managed to build a sustainable public transport network with happy employees, happy passengers and 100% population coverage. Then I heard a dingle and saw a notice in my status bar, a hippy type man wanted a route added from the town centre to the bushes in the corner of the map tile. I declined.

Cities in Motion is one of those games you just cant help but enjoy playing. Its got a lot of positives going for it and then.... inevitability the longer you play it, the more frustation creeps in. In the end it will wave goodbye to all that goodwill that it built up in the many hours of previous play.

The game tries to be at its core a simplified mass-transit simulator. You take control of a company looking to build several transport routes across a number of recreated cities in the hopes of gaining enough money to expand the network and eventually complete a number of mission objectives. All the while you have to deal with maintaining the infrastructure and vehicles, keeping your public reputation as high as possible and generating a profit to pay your workers.

There are 2 campaigns. I only completed the first, which consisted of 12 scenarios, each of them stand-a-lone so you are not penalized when you begin the next one. Objectives come in the form of petitions, which tend number around 12-18 per scenario. Their content is a variation upon a theme, such as; build x number of lines, build a line from a to b, keep your vehicles maintained above y, transport z passengers, increase or decrease prices, remove n number of stops, stop a line for x weeks, etc. For the most part these are all fairly easy to carry out and you are only restricted by money, at least at the start.

There are five types of transport lines which you can use to carry passengers around the city: bus (road), trams (lines), metro (underground), ferry (water) and heliports (air). Each has several (around 35) vehicles in total with their own strengths and weakeness such as; carry capacity, reliability, speed, attractiveness, which provide benefits and weaknesses to your strategy.

Add to this the need to tinker with prices as an abstracted economy rises and falls, the ability to finance through bank loans your next big project and you get the picture. Take all of these ingredients and you get what is a fun, enjoyable and not to difficult game to play. For the most part the game works. However... as you play more and more you get to see that the game isnt exactly well designed. Or built.

You can essentially perform gamey actions to circumvent the restrictions that the developers have in store for you, allowing you to build up cash reserves quickly without any bad effects. Once youve completed the first few maps there is little to tax anyone looking for something with a harder challenge. The first campaign maps encompass four cities; Berlin, Amsterdam, Vienna & Helsinki but, once you have figured out the best strategy for each one, you can re-apply the same strategy over and over, despite the different starting circumstances.

The biggest let-down has to be the bugged campaign scenario 2 petiton that never triggers. This means you can never complete the associated achievement, unless you find a user-made editor, that allows you to access the relevant file and edit one word in the code. One word!! Thats unforgiveable given that many patches were released for this game and this major fault is still not fixed! The other major issue (if you are an achievement hunter) is that another achievement requires purchase of 34 base game vehicles. Of which I have attempted to acquire twice. The base game even includes more than 34 vehicles. Unfortunately the counter stops at 15 for me. I know others have had the same problem.

Despite having many, many dlcs, you do not need any of them to get all the achievements. The fact that the developers (and publisher) do not force you to buy all the extra dlcs they made to get 100% achievements would have otherwise been a great plus for this game.... but alas no..... I highly suspect that you will need to purchase at least some other dlcs (with extra vehicles in them) to get this "all vehicles" achievement.

Its really disappointing... because if not for these core issues I would say that overall Cities in Motion is an above average, if slightly lightweight mass-transit simulator. One that I would have recommended to those of you interested in the genre or looking for something non-violent. As it is all that good work was undone on the final straight.

* If the developers ever fix these two achievement issue I will happily change this to a YES recommendation.
** The Complete Collection achievement can be triggered by downloading a MOD (of all the vehicles reworked) For some reason in their unpacked form they register.

Do I care about public transport more than anyone else? No, definitely not. But this game is very well made. Good tutorial, motivating challenges/missions, adjustable skirmish mode, good graphics, nice achievements,...

Get it! Btw. it's even better than Cities in Motion 2. Funny but true.

I actually prefer this original CIM more than CIM2. It is its own unique game, so you can't really compare it to another game. Its not without its bugs and annoyances though, which include Traffic Jams (Saving, Restarting and Reloading sometimes helps) and more passengers than you will be able to transport.. The DLC vehicles also get added into timeframes they do not belong in, making it unrealistic to the point where you will ignore the small vehicles and just go for the larger\bigger DLC vehicles which carry the most passengers and non DLC vehicles are stupidly slow and handle small numbers of passengers. However overlooking this, it is possible to play with an erection and you can find yourself either quick playing to complete campaign tasks or modifying, changing and adding to existing routes. A few have complained about DLC price but this often appears in sales and cheap on Bundle websites with the DLC, so keep looking and if you see it on sale with the DLC or in a bundle, its worth a go.

Any Transport Tycoon Fan will enjoy what is on offer in Cities in Motion. The unique detail of this sim is unrivalled with anything else in this genre. Campaign to sandbox mode you will be frantically working out how to maximise efficiency of all the transport routes you have created.

This is one title you can play and play and play.
