It may not be a gem for everyone since it does require a lot of self-motivation and self-direction for a sandbox genre, but If you are a city builder with determination and organization, this is the game for you.

I hope every building simulator fan out there gives this DLC a try because it's jam-packed with considerations to be made definitely worth investigating!

Cities: Skylines takes a classic game design template and updates it with minimum fuss and considerable style. It might not be the type of game you'd normally want to take over the family TV, but it's hard to imagine a better console execution.

Until you've seen it, it's impossible to understand the scale at which a game like Cities: Skylines exists. Even starting a new city in a small area seems like an insurmountable task. The complexity of the controls and decisions at your behest seem unlearnable. But these things don't mean the game isn't a ton of fun.

Easily one of the best city management games, if not the only pure one left. Build a city of your own, and watch it grow. This game was made as a response to SimCity and instead replaced it.

Cities: Skylines Xbox One Edition was great and I couldn't imagine a more perfect version of a city builder for the console.

If you love taking charge, want to manage worlds, balance budgets and take on a heavy load in your quest to become god, then this is the game for you.
