Simcity (2013) vs. Cities XL Platinum
Asides from the memory-leak issues (which PCgamingwiki assures me can be fixed), is Cities XL better than Simcity (2013) in terms of map size, flexability, and simulation?

The new Simcity has left me wanting, in that for every good idea introduced (upgradable building), three bad ones come with it (unreliable DRM; small maps; simulation breaks down after city gets big enough). People have been recommending Cities XL over it, and am wondering if people here would agree.

I have been playing cxl from the very right start and also own Sim City. I really prefer Cxl, because of the relatively huge map size and the way it loos like.

Yeah the memory leak and the monocore programming is certainly a problem, but if you have fun it doesn't bother you.

You can get cxl at the latest humblebundle ;)

Maps are huge in CXL, and the strategy is much deeper than SimCity, which is actually very shallow and broken past the first couple of hours. It's realistically a much better game. Buuut. It's performance is horrible because of the single core programming. The more your city grows, the worse the game will run. Obviously it gets worse the weaker your CPU is, but even on a top tier i7 you'll run into lower and lowr FPS. It actually turned me off the game once I got the point where my (relatively small city) got like 5 FPS. I barely covered a quarter of the largest map, and it became unplayable.
