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.

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 c**p 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!

Do you have a nice CPU?
Have you always wanted to murder your local public transportation manager and fix everything..?

It's relaxing, challenging, sometimes even tense.

Avoid the sequel

It's fun to play, you can make cities and then make transport for the city and manage it. It does crash occasionally but then again most games do.

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.

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.
