I actually enjoyed this DLC a little more than the previous few because it finally does something with the "boring" specialized industry mechanic. The achievements are definitely an upgrade from the 10 minute Green Cities DLC grind. Nevertheless these DLC's are all way overpriced in my honest opinion and feel more like title updates to a game that lacked of lot of mechanics when it launched.

Don't get me wrong I think that the vanilla Cities Skylines is a great game and there is much fun to be had with the bare bones version. I've played this game way to much and even I think that the DLC has never been worth it's money.

Can't wait to play this when they sell me a mega edition that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Paradox is one of those publishers which encourages eking out paid content over time unfortunately.

Still, they're bringing some great games to console. But yes, too expensive.

Exactly what I was thinking.

I'm thinking I might do the same. This can be like an end game of sorts for me. Maybe by that time I'll really have nothing else to play/be interested in so I can just put myself into one game.

I didn’t even know this game had an Xbox version. How are the controls?

The controls are very well done, it's quick and easy to navigate the multitude of options.

Thanks. One more question: why have only 10 people completed this game? I can tell that the achievement list is time consuming, but nothing sounds especially hard.

The full game with DLC? There's an RNG achievement that can potentially take 100s of hours in Natural Disasters. There's also an achievement for experiencing 1000 nights in the game which equates to 100+ hours of pure idling.

Plus, that DLC really is quite expensive.

So many things that change a game I was really interested in playing into something I'll never start!
