Cities: Skylines has been adapted to the Nintendo Switch in a way that does its job in a fun and competent way. The size constraints of the Nintendo Switch screen do set some limits that do not allow for the entirety of the game's characteristics to be fully reproduced but the experience is nonetheless fun and interesting and fits perfectly with the fans of the city simulation genre.

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.

Overall, this is a PC-quality, bonafide City Simulation game on a handheld console. Regardless of the system it is on, Cities Skylines is a one of the better games in the genre despite some flaws and missing features. If you can look past the performance issues during certain circumstances, this is a wonderful and remarkable game to be able to play on the go and at home that can keep you busy and entertained for the foreseeable future.

For anyone who's looking to experience Cities Skylines and doesn't have access to a PC, this is the version to purchase. It's a thoroughly enjoyable game that really captures the old-school simulator catharsis. It's very addictive and with promises of more patches and potential for more DLC, it's probably going to be the long term leader of the city building genre on consoles for a long time to come. Heartily recommended to all who are interested!

With a complex design system expertly hidden behind an inviting and easygoing experience, people can find peace within the expansive landscapes and that is a rare thing in what is usually a high stakes and stressful simulated experience.

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.
