WGTC At the end of the day, Cities XL 2012 is a solid simulation game. It feels like it’s meant for players who have been playing simulation games for a long time. I don’t suggest it for people trying to get into simulation games, but it’s definitely worth being in the collection of anyone who plays them frequently. It’s not the most amazing thing since Sim Ant, but it’s fine where it stands. Read Full Review
The Digital Fix City building games appeal to a certain type of player, those people who favour ‘god-sims’ where their every decision effects the life and well-being of the virtual world they control. Some of these players can still be found whiling away a Sunday afternoon playing Sim City 4 wanting nothing better than to build and control their very own little metropolis only to destroy it later with meteor strike or alien invasion. So with the release of Cities XL 2012 they have a chance to see how the genre has moved on since 2003. Read Full Review

Thankfully, Cities XL 2012 is out, and it's a great expansion to Cities XL 2011. If you already own 2011, you can pick up 2012 for just $14.99. This makes it more like an expansion for some, and if you are a newcomer to the series, it's still worth $39.99. Read Full Review
