What Gamespot Users have to say about Cities in Motion

  • User Rating 7.5

    Both intriguing and infuriating. Like a massive puzzle as soon as you solve one challenge, there is another waiting.

    To be honest I have never "beaten" this game. In other words I have yet to get an entire city running smoothly on mass transit. Its not through any lack of trying, but this game is one of the best exa...

    Addictive, but flawed.

    You can really get into a groove with this game - in many respects the gameplay reminds me of the early Railroad Tycoon games. The graphical execution is the best I've seen in a city/transport sim ...

    It's boring, it's that simple. I was hoping for something like Transport Tycoon, but it is nothing like it. Too much time is spend on one line. First you find a place to set the line, than you add the...

    There is some complexity in its simplicity. But lacks something...

    Lets start with the beginning: Whats the game about? Transportation. You make your own little transport company that apparently always has a monopoly on all the city's means of transportation and yo...

    At first I was disappointed, then I was frustrated, but now I have to admit, this isn't a bad game at all.

    I was looking forward to this game for months, being a fan of the city/transport sim genre. As it got closer to release, though, my enthusiasm began to cool. Only 4 cities? No cargo other than peop...

    Maybe I'm a moron, but I just don't get it.

    I think that I may have to come to grips with the fact that I am completely brain dead. I must be; there is absolutely no other explanation to the amount of difficulty I had with this game. Before...

    It's not Transport Tycoon, but it could have been

    Cities in Motion is a game that triggered a small button in me, the micro-management button. A button that really, has only been satisfied properly since Transport Tycoon/OpenTTD. A game where you man...

    A steep learning curve coupled with some obvious flaws almost obscure just how good this game is.

    Rated on March 03, 2011 by xerxys_81

    First of all, the game is gorgeous. Lovingly rendered European-style cities certainly offer something different to the usual US architecture you find in so many of these games, with a detail not only ...

    A moders dream!!!

    Rated on March 07, 2011 by 071087

    The game it self isn't that super duper simulation that the trailers made it to be. But still so far it's the best public transport simulation so far. Even if it has a lot of bugs (up to version 1.0.1...

    Was really excited when this game was released - I thought yay! Transport Tycoon for 2011... sadly mistaken.

    Ok so I'm an old Transport Tycoon player so clearly this game has got a lot to live up to. Indeed it owes a lot to it's ancestral inspiration - they even credit Chris Sawyer in the game manual. So...
