    Launches on Games Pass today.

    Anyone given it a try. It looks interesting and very detailed.

    I've seen it pop up on a hape of discounts on the PS Store, usually bundled with something else, can't recall. Always wondered if it was any good.

    My friend got it a while back, he likes sim city and the like and thought this might be ok, said he became addicted to it. He tried to get me to buy it but not much interest in these types. Anyway, saw the thread and said I'd pass on a second hand approval of this game.

    Its on ps4 as well I think is it?

    It is indeed, if you wait you can usually get a good deal on the bundle of Surviving Mars and Cities Skylines, think it was down to €15 recently, but back up to €60 now. By itself, it's €30.

    It's a fun little game and made better with modding support and a dev team that have been working on improvements since its release and even incorporating the most popular mods into the base game.

    I don't know how well it might play on a console - I can't imagine it being any fun trying to manage this sorta game without a mouse.

    Yeah first thing I thought when I saw it on game pass was that's a good one for the PC. 100%'ed apex legends and looking to move onto something totally different, this could fit the bill. Might try before I buy on game pass and then pick it up for PC if I like it.

    Good idea actually!
    Just checked cdkeys and the base game can be got for only €7.09 right now, so that's a great price if it's worth playing :)

    Couldn't really get into it at all, found it a bit boring. Haven't really had the proper time to sink into it though.

    Have it on PS4, probably much better on PC. Loved Tropico 5 though so I might give this another chance soon.
