IMG Reviews Cities In Motion
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Paradox Interactive's Cities in Motion. The mass public transportation simulator allows players to visit a variety of cities in different time periods where they must build profitable transportation systems.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

The required thinking behind the creation of profitable routes makes Cities In Motion an extremely complex and enjoyable simulation. You have to bring the people from their home to their workplaces or entertainment preferences, give them options for mid-day exploration, and a route back home again in the end. In addition to that, you have to make all the transit lines short enough to be able to turn a profit without ridiculous numbers of vehicles running through it. This can commonly take the form of a metro line cutting through a stream, bus stops continuing the network into the suburbs, and a tram line cutting across country to shorten the route to a distant farm. Each different form of transit has its specialty, and you have to be careful to stick to them if you want to turn a profit. Needless to say, it's hard at first. Most players will go broke early and often. However, once you realize that the metro lines make you filthy rich due to their high capacity, speed, and ability to ignore traffic, the game becomes extremely easy.
