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.

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 you to build a reasonable network to guide you 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 a bit misleading. Please use google picture search if you want to get an impression of the game interface

I do like transport sims and this game has all of the necessary components - complexity, balance between micro and macromanagement, modability, slow learning curve... but it is also incredibly bleak, dull and lifeless. Cities look dead, colour palette is mostly made of grey, brown, muddy and depressing tones. Weather doesn't change

You can't deselect with mouse clicks and developers notoriously ignored all requests for this feature. You can change your cities slightly but it wont affect traffic or population. "Quests" involve building lines to specific places in a city, connecting buildings and reaching certain amount of traffic usage. There's no rush and no competition, you can simply let the game run, amass money and build all over your city.

It's not a bad game overall but unfortunately it gets boring, bland and repetitive very quickly. I've played for 28 hours few years ago and never started it since.

Great game have played many hours on it, never really got bored, in some ways I prefer this to the sequel. Overall I would recommend the game, my only problem was when using fast forward in the game, the frames a second would drop dramatically, but this was not caused by my computer as both graphics card and processor were not being maxed out.

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.
