The review did however praise the game's tutorial and graphics.[7] GameZone compared Cities XL 2011 to Civilization IV and concluded that "while the lack of a game-winning goal or story won't sit well with some players, it by no means disrupts the addictive nature of Cities XL 2011".[6] Aggregate review websites give scores of 75.13% on GameRankings,[4] and 70 (out of 100) on Metacritic.[5]
