Fun, detailed, and strategic city builder.
There are multiple reviews that highlight in much greater depth, the great gameplay, modding features and the attention to detail that exists in this game.
Another amazing thing is that you can chose the game play style that you adopt as a player, and have a new rewarding experience when you replay it.

Best building city game ever
What a game! ery awesome game, pretty much what I hoped the latest simcity release would be, but minus all the horrible things EA did to that franchise (I refused to buy simcity, but was excited for it before its release).
Back to this game: I won't get into the logistical details of this game, you can wikipedia it or read technical reviews if you want to know all the features and capabilities (of which I'll summarize: it can get detailed and technical if you want to micro-manage things, but it's also like old-school classic city sims in the sense that you can just slap down streets, zoning, water and power, and let it run).
The graphics are not mind-blowing for 2018, but they are still good, and "modern", such as (good) depth-of-field, real-time shadows, reflections and above average water surfaces, etc etc. For a city and traffic simulator, the graphics are very good - see youtube videos!
I would prefer it to not be intregated into Steam, which is awfully overbearing and heavy, but it hasn't ruined the experience.
Overall I would definitely say this is still THE city simulator to buy in 2018

Best city building game by far
I've played SimCity before, but this game is great... so much detail that it's hard to know whether this is a game or a simulator! Even my partner is addicted (she has the veto on public transport stops), and that about says it all.

I haven't picked up a game in months and really enjoy the tranquility of managing a town. incredible grapics too.
I would highly reccomend this to anyone who enjoyed playing with lego as a child. a total mastery on the city building genre.

Carrying the torch for Sim City vets
Nearly flawless city builder. The flexibility you are allowed in the vanilla game is amazing, however with mods, the experience multiplies ten fold. Mods bring this game to a whole new level, but running too many simultaneously will put a beating on your hardware.

Best city building game I have ever played
I have been a long time fan of sim games, I have played everything from the original Sim Tower series though to the latest Sim City and loved them all, having never ventured outside of the Maxis/EA franchise until Cities:Skylines I wasn't sure what to expect after all the developer is new to me and they are attempting to jump into a gaming genre I already know and love and one that is well established within the Maxis/EA world.
First things first, the layout may not appear as polished as SimCity users may be used to and the game initially appears to me somewhat lacking in production value.. but don't let that put you off this is a game that starts off small and gets BIG.
I began simply building a small city and getting to know the controls and layouts etc and they are not all that dissimilar from what I was used to with the SimCity series. But this game builds on that and gives you many many more options for zoning and construction in comparison. Initially i felt like this would be easy pickens for me giving how used to this genre I am but the difficulty level in Cities:Skylines is completely different. The complexity is immediately apparent when attempting to provide power and water for your city which involves a considerable amount more planning and work than just plotting down a power plant.
It all pays off though because just when you feel like your getting somewhere you realize you have barely scratched the surface on what this game has to offer and how many hours you will spend just reaching for that perfect design and expanding upon what you have already built to create the ultimate city.
The game itself is fairly demanding what ran fluently with zero issues on snoost. This is a game I purchased and could only play on low up until today.
If you are interested in strategy and love sim games then Cities:Skylines may be the best one yet.
