Review info

Release date: October 24, 2023

Cities: Skylines 2 is the perfect stepping stone for those seeking world domination via industrialization, or those who simply want to explore and enjoy a fantastic city-building simulator.

Usually, my biggest gripe with city-building sims is that they can be too realistic. This may sound counter-intuitive as some will enjoy the hardship, but, for me, it turns what should be an engaging and fascinating experience of creating a working metropolis into something that feels like homework. With a little cholera in the water pipes sprinkled in for good measure.
