How can they consistently keep screwing this up?
Shouldn't you learn something after 2 failures?
They've been at this for longer. Cities XL is the continuation of the City Life series, which was created by the now-defunct Monte Cristo. Their games were generally pretty low-budget, unpolished and mediocre, but not aggressively awful. After Monte Cristo went out of business, the Cities XL franchise ended up in the hands of Focus Home Interactive. Though they've published some good games like Trackmania, they have no real track record as a developer, with only the Cities XL series to their name as far as I can tell. This leads me to believe that they're just farming work out to contractors, having them add a couple of new features and slapping a new name on it.
