That's got to be the best review I've ever read
I read Marq's review and then I read Doc's comment and I just about died
Just one more block and I swear I'll stop.
It's never too early for a glass of wine and some zombie shooting.
OK, now that I've come up for air I can say a few words: This is easily the best city builder since SimCity 4, more than 12 years ago. Very fun, logical, challenging, and most of all addictive. I've been enjoying it more than any other game I've bought in years.
marq, are you seeing any issues with traffic and services? A couple of the reviews I read mentioned it as being an issue.

Of course he wouldn't be experiencing those issues. He's playing the game so much that he's the one causing them.

It is extremely hard to maintain good traffic flow, and as your city develops you must constantly and actively adjust your transportation network. It's arguably the most difficult part of the game. I was failing miserably at first because I was noting bad traffic spots and simply upgrading to larger capacity roads as a single solution. It was only after I tied public transportation and intelligent road design that I began seeing success.
I'm still seeing certain sections of the city suffering from medical or fire emergencies because I haven't perfected the road networks in those areas.
I recall one of the Cities: Skyline developers talking about how they're attempting to combat piracy... By providing a good service, frequent updates which are a pain to keep up for pirates and support for community modifications. "The Steam Workshop is the best kind of DRM," I believe one of them said. This sounds like a game I may have to try.
Of all the things I've lost,I think I miss my mind the most.
Yeah they have a great attitude about piracy. Read more here:http://www.technologytell.com/gaming/144299/cities-skylines-knows-exactl...
Quote: As usual our plan for pirates is to make a great game even better through free updates – making it more convenient to use Steam instead. It’s all about offering the superior service. That’s how we bring down piracy. By making the paid experience a superior one.
You can check out a dozen or so screenshots from my first city here.
There's a YouTuber I watch who reviewed this as well, and he's just over the moon about it as well, and this guy doesn't pull any punches. He's also pretty amusing, especially when playing horror games, as they scare the pants off him. Here's a link to his Skylines review. Warning: He can be a little raw, so probably NSFW.

Great shots, and I can't say you've every steered me wrong when it comes to gaming.
If only I could fly around that skyline in a custom made costume and kil skulls....
The mods have been pretty amazing. I've seen one that lets you fly around the city in a helicopter, so I guess its only a matter of time until we get a superhero mod.
