Topic 4 is fun - a little shallow, don't play sandbox...the varying missions are the key.

Simcity 4 has loads of potential, but is just too buggy and frustrating.

Settlers 2 was awesome, didn't know they re-did the graphics, I'll give this a look.

Startopia is my pick of the bunch! Hillarious and great fun! But more like theme hospital than a proper city builder...

STARTOPIA!! I loved that game when I was younger. Some seriously long hours put into that game. Totally agree with MiNiMaL_FuSS, hilarious and tonnes of fun. Little bit repetitive if you get stuck on one of the levels. (Like I did. Had to start a war with the neighbouring population and I couldn't for the life of me do it lol).

Sad though, because I think I traded it in last week

Anyone know the name of that space game where you had to build a moon colony station thing? Was kind of similar to Startopia where you had rooms that met different needs, etc.

Some people seem to like Cities XL which I think is similar to the SimCity games. Also I heard about a game called Train Giant 9, I think it's mostly just building railways but they go from town to town and you can start businesses in the towns and do all kinds of economic stuff.

Cities XL 2012 is 75% off on Steam if you're prepared to take a punt on it.

Major bump! Played tropico 4 and enjoyed it very much.

Now moving onto Sim City 2013 - out next month... trailers look pretty cool.

Wondering if its worth trying Sim City 4? From Youtube vids it looks a bit.... old?

Played the Tropico 4 demo off steam a few times over the last 6 months. Every time I go back, its cause I'm looking for an Anno type game. By the time I finish the demo, I can't stand the game a second longer.

No idea why!?

I'd give SimCity 4 a miss simply due to the fact it doesn't run properly on modern computers. I've tried both my disc copy and a Steam version, and both will only run with software rendering (ewww) without crashing, but the renderer causes all kinds of funny glitches that, for me, ruin the game.

Stick it out to March and get the new one.

It has similarities to SimCity but plays a fair bit differently.
A major thing to remember with Cities XL is that the developer of the game has been extinct for quite some time so it has no official support, this results in the game being very buggy and having poor performance levels.
On the flip side, Cities has an excellent modding community so a lot of the issues can be addressed by players and additional content is abundant through xlnation.net.

I've found the best way to enjoy Tropico is to try take on the personality you've chosen for your president, that way you get a bit more involved in how your island runs and can become engrossed in the game.

It also helps to purposefully cause riots and revolts as it gives you something a bit more exciting to deal with every now and then.

SimCity 4 is somewhat old, but it is still a fantastic game and well worth picking up if you can get it from a bargain bin or during a sale; no point paying full price if you're already set on getting the latest game in the series.

It can bug out like mad at times though, so you may have to mess with settings a fair bit to get it playing smoothly.

Yes. Do not buy this game, it has memory leaks all over the place and still in the platinum edition they've just released on steam. No idea why they're still selling it.

hmmm might have to go play it now...

Can't say I've seen much memory leaking going on, just slow performance and bad optimisation. The landscape mechanics are a bit screwed as well...
I'd agree that it should be avoided for most people, those who like modding games may enjoy it if they can grab a copy for under £5.

Worth noting that the original developer (Monte Cristo) was made extinct when the original Cities XL was released (sadly it was also released as an incomplete product due to the team being dissolved).

The people who hold the license now are just milking the cow by releasing "new versions" which are actually just the previous game with content & patch files unlocked (files that already existed when the game was originally produced but were locked away due to lack of time to test them).
