Anno has junk DRM, too. Not always-online, but activation limit without any revoke tools. I wanna try Cities XL, though.

Cities xl needs to be optimized. Once you reach a certain amount the game just slows down. Regardless of how much your pc can handle it. I have it and it pretty good. Just thats one of the major issues about It
