I thought this would be a great game, but there are some basic problems with it. The graphics are beautiful, the music is peaceful, and it is a relaxing game to play. Playing the tutorial is great as it features a small modern city, and in time you are able to create a wonderful public transport system. But then when you start playing the actual missions, the first mission is Nazi Germany just before World War 2. I mean, come on?!! Isn't there a better city and time period to start with? There were very few choices of vehicles, such a the only bus being a very slow bus that can only hold 10 people in a city with thousands of people wanting to catch a bus. Have they never heard of a faster double decker bus like you can choose in the tutorial game? Before long, hundreds of people are queuing at your bus stops, and you are losing money preventing you from building more transport lines. Then there is a traffic jam which holds everything up. Cars will randomly stop for no reason, or vehicles will stop to allow people to cross in the middle of the street, some vehicles will drive along at what seems to be 2mph. In the meantime, all your empty buses are building up at the back of the traffic jam as they can't reach the bus stops!
This would be a brilliant game if they gave more choice to the vehicles such as faster vehicles, and vehicles holding more people, and improved the traffic system to prevent every car in the city stopping and driving so slowly that nothing can move on the roads! Perhaps they should have started the first mission with a modern city with more transport choices, and perhaps a research lab to design new vehicles.
