The direct competitor to SimCity, our recommendation for a city-building and management simulator goes to Cities: Skylines. Starting with just a plot of land, players will be able to expand this open-ended city-building simulator.
Decide exactly how your city will be built from zoning, road placement, public services, public transportation, and even taxation. Make your city replicate a town of your own or make something truly unique and creative. However, the ultimate goal remains the same, can you make a lasting and functioning city?
