    If you are like me and can sit for hours watching little trains, buses, helicopters and trams transport people through the city, you will find this game extremely satisfying. To my surprise the user interface is extremely functional, building new lines is a breeze so you can spend all your time enjoying the view and planning the lines. The passengers are well done - they keep in mind their budget, time to travel and the walking distance. Also the traffic is well generated, you really have to take it into account if you are planing to create a major transfer point. In addition the sound track is great as well. Over all 5 stars well deserved. (There are 12 missions I have beaten 6 in about 25 hours of playtime, so expect well over 40 hours which is a great deal for your $20)

    These types of games are few and far between. They come from small development teams headquartered in God knows where. I can't imagine how few copies a game in which you plan public transit routes in and around European cities sells.

    There are bugs. Cars and pedestrians will occasionally sit on your tram tracks even if they have room to move forward. I experienced several crashes. The campaign mode's goals are often absurd but optional. The UI is not the most intuitive I've ever seen. Some information is difficult to find or interpret. A few gameplay elements seem to be arbitrary, such as not letting you place a tram route over NPC railroad tracks. Sometimes you'll get goals telling you to place a tram route in a certain place, but because trams cannot be built over water, for example, the goal cannot be completed.

    Some real life types of transit routes, such as long bus routes or multiple subway routes using the same stations and branching off are difficult to maintain, which means a lot of the real life transit that I love cannot be recreated in the game with much success. I would have liked to see the inclusion of dedicated lanes for buses and light rail as well.

    The core gameplay of building and operating public transportation routes, however, is solid. If you suffer from a mental condition that attracts you to these type of games, then Cities in Motion will satiate. There have been a few instances in which I've started a session only to realize that it was suddenly 4AM. In this way, Cities in Motion brings back fond memories of Transport Tycoon, but with more of a focus on passenger transport.

    With an attentive development team, the game can only get better.

    Like the previous reviewer, I am the type that enjoys the micro-managing aspects of a game. Sitting for hours watching little cars and buses whiz along is very enjoyable. If you're not that type, you probably won't make it very far before getting bored. That said, this game definitely makes for some enjoyable play time. It's not the type of game you want to sit down to if you only have 5 minutes to spare, and unlike most games it will not continue to run in the background. Although you can put it in window mode, the game auto-pauses once your cursor is out of the game. A bit annoying since you can't buy anything once you're in debt, and taking out a new loan isn't always the right answer. That means large chunks of time are spent waiting for the small amount of profit being made to add up to enough to make the next major upgrade.

    For a new release, I was surprised at the lack of bugs, and the graphics are wonderfully detailed. In spite of having every option cranked up to max, it runs very smoothly. I have seen some complaints on the forums that once you reach mega-city level the sheer amount of people causes it to lag, but I'm only halfway through the campaign's so far. My cities are large, but not insane.

    All in all it was definitely worth the money for me, and it will be one of those games I come back to time and again.

    Games like this are hard to find nowadays. But if you're a fan of Locomotion, Transport Tycoon or games of that ilk that are all about taking people from point A to point B as efficiently and economically as possible, this is the latest in that genre. Given its obviously low budget and inherent limitations, it feels surprisingly polished and modern. And it's as addictive as any of its predecessors.

    This game is based in Europe and takes place from around the 1920's to the present day. The general goal is to build up mass transit systems using buses, trams (light rail), metros (subways), water taxis/ferries and helicopters(??). There are several scenarios, one for each city in the game, though they basically all come down to the same thing - just build the most efficient transit system possible.

    The graphics are very detailed and realistic, and it's obvious how much care went into them. People walk around realistically and actually walk on and off your vehicles (they don't just appear and disappear), planes take off and land at airports (and they look like real planes), long distance trains arrive and depart from train stations (and they look like real trains), traffic moves mostly like you'd expect, with jams in busy areas. The cities do feel alive, and when stations and stops on my lines start to get really crowded, I find myself actually feeling bad for all the little people standing there waiting endlessly. It's fun to actually just sit there watching as any new vehicles you add slowly start to pick up the slack and empty those platforms or sidewalks.

    Of course, the really addictive thing about any game like this is connecting people with where they want to go, and this game is no exception.
