Cities XL – Mini Review!

What is it?

Cities XL is a city builder game, in the same vein as Cities Skylines and SimCity. It features over 1,000 different buildings and gives you the challenge of building a wonderful metropolis, the like of which the world has never seen.



Decent looking, despite it’s age.
Can get up close and personal with your population.
Loads of buildings.
Memory leak causes massive issues.
Poor user interface.


Cities XL is fairly decent as a city builder. Not one of the top city builder games, but a solid mid-tier game. It does suffer from a major memory leak issue, which does mean you can’t really play it for long periods, so for that reason, it’s probably worth avoiding it.
