Is it recommended even for someone who hasn't played a city builder since SimCity 3 and could never make sustainable cities beyond a handful of buildings?
I think the big question to ask is whether you had fun playing SC3. I find Cities Skylines to have quite a bit more Thinking Required(tm) than any of the Sim City games, especially because bad traffic solutions will absolutely cripple everything.
I'm now on my 7th city, and I've yet to have one pass 40K (my current one seems to be doing well though, it's @ 28K and rising steadily). But I actually have a lot of fun starting over and implementing new ideas (which are not necessarily better ones.)
I heartily recommend it, but if you didn't really have much fun playing SC, then I doubt you'd have much fun playing this.
On the flipside, if you don't feel like fucking with the difficult parts yourself, just download a save from the workshop and you can basically get just about anything you want.
