Cities: Skylines is a modern take on the classic city simulator. The game introduces new gameplay elements to realize the thrill and hardships of creating and maintaining a real city whilst expanding on some well-established tropes of the city building experience. We've extensively played the title and believe that this game surpasses even the earlier Sim City games.
Today, Paradox Interactive released the "Mass Transit" expansion on consoles. According to the publisher, commuters can now get around on the water, up high mountain peaks, and even across the sky thanks to the addition of monorails, cable cars, and blimps to Cities: Skylines. Along with new transit service buildings, mass transit hubs where lines can exchange passengers, new scenarios, new landmarks, and new road types add unique style and personality to metropolises.
In our review we wrote, "few modern city-building games approach Cities: Skylines in terms of quality and depth, and it's awesome to see a smaller developer step in and prove that there's still an audience for this type of game, even if the big players weren't willing to provide it." EA might be too caught up in nickel-and-diming consumers, but at least the genre lives on in more capable hands.
