Developer: Colossal Order

Publisher: Paradox Interactive

Genre: Simulation

Cities: Skylines - Parklife is a playful new expansion, making your city more alive with new amusement parks, nature reserves, city parks and zoos, and giving new life to your empty land with custom parks and gardens. With everything from roller coasters and campsites to flower beds, fountains and flamingos, Parklife adds new ways to play, with the introduction of a new park area tool and level-up features that increase your parks property values, along with five new maps and a ton of assets in play. More leisurely features: PARKS AND RECREATION Use the new park area tool to create park districts wherever there is empty land, and new city services like Park Maintenance, which boosts happiness and effectiveness and helps level up parks. BRICK BY BRICK Customize your city with new buildings and assets, including a new sightseeing bus line, new service buildings, new unique buildings like amusement parks, nature reserves, city parks and zoos, and a regal new monument, the Castle of Lord Chirpwick. FREEWAY FREE FOR ALL For the first time in Cities: Skylines, you can place buildings next to paths in the park districts (not just next to roads). Props can be placed anywhere inside park areas. RECESSES BETWEEN BUILDINGS Transform those empty spaces between your buildings into vibrant parks and gardens. IT'S A WALK IN THE PARK Customize routes and set ticket prices for new walking and sightseeing tours, among other tourism enhancements. POLICIES, PLEASE Take on three new city policies and eight new park policies to deal with recreational hazards like Animal Ethics and Fireworks.

Die-hard fans of the game will jump at the chance to fine-tune and beautify their creations, but the casual city planner probably won’t find enough here to be worth the investment.

A solid expansion that doesn't reinvent the game but adds further depth to your dream metropolis.

Colossal Order might be asking a little much for what some would consider a small DLC, but there's no denying that it has created something pretty special here. Focusing the DLC on zooming down to street level and getting into the nitty-gritty of placement of pretty much everything in the park was a stroke of genius, and something it will hopefully implement into future DLC releases. In a genre about building a city, it's interesting to get players to come down from the clouds every now and then and really set up something unique to their town, and serves as just another reason why this game is special among others of its ilk.
