Cities Skylines 

 

I like city builder video games. I love it when they are ported over to the consoles. Cities Skylines started out on the PC, and was ported over to the PS4 and Xbox One. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming had the money to purchase this game on the Xbox One. The PR and Marketing people failed us totally in regards to this game.

In terms of the different city builder games Cities Skylines does some interesting things. It also fails on some notes as well. The controls are not intuitive and can be confusing to figure out at first. The tutorial is sort of helpful at times. Other times it just gets in the way, or does not bother to explain something really important.

Cities Skylines looks decent and it sounds good. The graphics are on the small side, even when we zoom in all the way. It can be a pain to have to set up the water and electricity in Cities Skylines. Other city builders make this part of the game easier. Cities Skylines wants the player to micro manage every single aspect of the town building. Be careful of the money situation in Cities Skylines. Even on the easiest setting there is not a lot of money at first. You can have unlimited funds but won’t earn any trophies if you do so. How lame is that? I failed the first couple of times and learned to start small.

Cities Skylines is really limited in the options department. The control set up is not intelligent at all. There are only twelve maps to play on in Cities Skylines. I feel Cities Skylines is worth fifteen dollars brand new. Anything above that I worry you will not get your moneys worth. If you get into Cities Skylines and spend the time then you can have some fun.

I hope to see more city builders come out soon. Cities Skylines could have been done better. Mods are allowed on this game on the consoles so that is pretty cool. I semi enjoyed my time with this game.
