Cities in Motion is a game that involves working your way out of jams -- traffic jams, that is. You'll be employed by the mayors of four European cities in a job that will span multiple time periods, from 1920 to 2020. While the cities have the roads,...

Cities In Motion is the latest transport simulation from Paradox Interactive, developed by Colossal Order. As it turned out, the hardest part of writing this review was two-fold—one, getting far enough in the game to get a good picture of it; two,...

Cities in Motion is a very nice looking game that provides hours of entertainment for someone that is looking to play a transportation simulator. Unfortunately for me, there were bugs that interrupted my fun. I can see what Colossal Order was trying...

I'm conflicted with Cities in Motion. The lack of feedback, in-game competition, and unpredictability hurt the game's long-term draw; some older business simulations didn't have these problems. Cities in Motion does feature stellar tools and is one of...

A transitory pleasure that polishes up nice. But it lacks variety and competition, and is just a little bit too...

Deep down inside, I love sim/management games. Cities in Motion tapped into that and pulled on the heartstrings of nostalgia at the same time. But in the end the frustration and lack of feel of progress made it more like work than a fun management...

A worthy transport simulation that strikes a decent balance between complexity and ease of play. Much like the last train home, this is one sim transport buffs would do well to catch, particularly given the budget ticket price - even if a few annoying...

No. You can't build anything but transport. Yes. Cities in Motion (CiM) has a semi-deceptive title. Now that’s out of the way we can crack on. This isn't a game about urban planning or utility management. Rather it’s concerned with the core business...

As you progress through time, however, faster, bigger and more economically running vehicles will become available. Gaining access to new vehicles isn’t just about being able to cram more people into them and earning more cash. In that...

They do things differently in Europe. Turns out everybody over there doesn't have their own car. Many people take (gasp) public transportation to get from place to place. What's next, socialized healthcare?Despite initial feelings of confusion and...

International Review By Eurogamer on 70

Kender I det, at man fra første gang, man starter et spil op, kan mærke, at man her sidder med en titel, der er lavet med kærlighed. En lidt udefinerbar fornemmelse der rammer én, allerede inden man har sat sig i gang med at spille en eventuelt...

Klarar du av att hantera och att bygga upp och ut lokaltrafiken i de europeiska storstäderna Wien, Berlin, Helsingfors och Amsterdam? Använd bland annat tunnelbana och buss. Sim City från 1989 drog igång hela stadsbyggargenren på allvar. Efter det har...
