Kotaku: Cities XL Takes Tycoon Fiends Online (Impressions)

Think of Cities XL as a sort of spiritual successor to Sim City Societies, but with less emphasis on the people-please and more emphasis on playing God.

Now that Maxis has been swallowed by Spore and the guys who made Sim City Societies have moved onto Children of the Nile, indie developer Monte Cristo is free to snap up what little market there is for city-building sims in the wake of their 2006 game, City Life (which is, you guessed it, another city-building sim).

The story is too old to be commented.

Am I the only one that thinks this game will be awesome? Sim City meets a persistent MMO universe. Real time trading between neighboring cities. I think this has a lot of promise!
