Good cities game and alternative to Sim City with some fatal flaws
on July 30, 2013
The game is OK. It could be great except for these issues:
1. The game quickly gets SLOOOW - even on quad core Xeons with 12GB RAM. Over 100k residents and it lags all over the place.
2. The road design is annoying as hell. For some reason, it snaps roads based on the middle of the road. So you can never upgrade a road by say, knocking down a row of houses and laying a bigger road. No, it won't connect - you have to demolish the entire neighboorhood and start over.
3. Achievements seemingly come rapid fire and seem almost seizure inducing when they fly up in a stuttering manner because of 1.
If they fixed those things, I'd probably give this 5 stars because it could be soo much fun.
