“Massively Multiplayer Online City Builder” or “Roads Are Srsbusiness!”

November 3, 2009 Leave a comment

I have always been a fan of the Sim City franchise, but couldn’t fathom the genre dabbling into the MMO market. The two just seem… at odds. So I was glad when I read Jim Rossignol review of the game over at Eurogamer, and realized that the game is not worth the investment. At least not yet.

Here is an excerpt:

“I’ve enjoyed myself here, but Cities XL does not live up to its ambitions. The solo city-builder is a well-paced project for those who like to plot boulevards, but the appeal of the larger game remains unresolved. This is one game we’ll be returning to in due course where – all being well – a re-review should cast things in a slightly different light.”

Jim gives it a disappointing 6/10.
