Cities: Skylines II

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Cities Skylines 2 delivers on its core concept, featuring improvements over the original in nearly mechanic and system. Serious performance issues, even on beefy PCs, make it difficult to recommend at this time. But if Skylines 2 takes a similar path of regular transformations like the original, all of these issues seem resolvable.

Skylines 2 appears to be the distinct result of a dev team looking out at other places to find beauty and, more importantly, designing with an aim toward getting players interested in thinking of themselves as people making aesthetic choices. It’s thrilling.

2/5 stars

I’m completely enamored with the new simulation model and building tools in Cities: Skylines 2, and I could easily see myself sinking hundreds of hours tinkering with various city builds over months and years to come. But the reality is that I have no intention of touching Cities: Skylines 2 again for the foreseeable future. Honestly, I hope this review is totally outdated in a year’s time, because the foundations of what might just be the greatest city-building game ever created are here. But for now, the game’s technical shortcomings completely overshadow that promise.

Cities: Skylines 2 is an ambitious sequel that might have bitten off more than it can chew – be prepared to do a lot of terraforming if you don’t want your metropolis to look like a nightmare.
