We were promised mass tranist if we subcribed, well I did and guess what there is no mass transit in planet or solo mode not even a bus station. I can't even express the frustration of trying to build a hugh city with only highways, btw only way to connect to a highway is at the end. You can't make a junction and leaves you with expressways and avenues/small roads. The game dosen't give you time to plan a city cuz once connected to map money starts draining your account/400,000 dosen't last very long also buildings used to raise satisfaction are extremely expensive.
Trade: pure laggggggggggggg!!!!!! and city stats update takes 5/9 min, and yeah I have a state of the art computer
with all the trimmings.
All this = total frustration/disappontment/depression. I will admit cities xl has tremondous potential but for now it's just a waste of time and money.
