So where do I start? I have been playing these sort of games for a long time starting all the way back with SimCity then moving on to cities skylines 1 back in 2015 when it was launched and so far amassed over 17000 hours so fast forward to 2023 and the release of cities skylines 2 there has been some up and downs during the build up of the release of the game with performance issues and bugs with the developer changing the requirements for the game. With that being said the game refreshed I have enjoyed playing this so far trying out the upgraded road tools and new features the game has to offer this version of the game has had a fresh look which came as a good surprise.
I did find that I have to keep the healthcare budget good as loads of my cityheads was dying also a good sewage system is good thing to start with which I forgot to start with, so everyone is safe as I wont be running for any mayor jobs anytime soon .
The game comes with some buildable maps where you can start your little empire and you can earn tile points to unlock other tiles but choose wisely as some maps have a little area to build on you will have to manage the economy , transport , and all the essential services as well as keeping the cityheads (Sims) happy you can also play with unlimited money and unlock all but the achievements won’t be available or you can play the way the game was intended and unlock the achievements also new for the game is development points to unlock city services how you pick them is up to you but either way keep your eye on the RCI and your cityheads happy
What I have found playing the game is that there is a few bits from the 1st game but overall it has had a bit of a refresh with better rendering if you like these types of games then I would take a look at it
I would give this a score of 7/10 and this is due to a few bugs and performance issues currently in the game (performance issues being currently worked on)
