Cities in Motion 2 

 

Paradox Interactive was crystal clear with Family Friendly Gaming. Cities in Motion 2 is a mass transit game. This is not a city builder. This Personal Computer (PC) game is not a SimCity. I will be honest, I really wish it were. But it is not. Maybe mass transit is a bigger deal in Europe. Because we are all about our cars in America.

How many times have we told the Family Friendly Gaming Nation that tutorials are important? If you are tired of hearing about it then skip to the next paragraph. I tried to play Cities in Motion 2 without the tutorial and ran into roadblock after roadblock. I could buy buses but could not figure out how to get them on the road. At that point I just wanted a car.

After I went through the tutorial Cities in Motion 2 made much more sense. We use the mouse wheel to zoom in and zoom out. The WASD keys are used to move around. I know that is an old school PC control scheme, but I really dislike it. It is clumsy in my opinion. A mouse cursor moving around, or clicking dragging would have worked better in my opinion.

Cities in Motion 2 contains missions and a sandbox mode. It is a blast to mess around in the sandbox mode because we can learn how to play this PC game. Missions are for when you know what you are doing, and can accomplish the tasks. The menu screens have an intelligent design. I think some better shortcuts could have been added but that is just me.

Families can use Cities in Motion 2 to learn all about bus depots, train stations, and other forms of mass transit. They can also see how cities are put down, and work around landscaping constraints. Cities in Motion 2 feels more like going to class than playing a game. But I know academic gamers will get a kick out Cities in Motion 2.
