Have you checked out SimCity5 yet? Check out whats new with SimCity. 
Overall, the game has incorporated a host of new features that do in fact bring it that much closer to replicating the physical form of a city. If the new option to add curved streets makes the cities tend more toward the picket fences and little white box houses of suburbia, that might not be entirely bad; mayors will be able to test out fully suburban layouts, and see first hand the benefits, or drawbacks, of such a layout. More disappointing is the lack of subways, depriving players of a key component of many of the world’s major cities. Nevertheless, the innovations in this version make it a solid entry into the series. In terms of replicating the real experience of city design, however, the biggest problem lies not in the specific features of this version but the overall format of the game.

10 Powerful Policies to Successful Smart Mobility | Dr Hussein Dia
The reform of urban mobility remains one of the biggest challenges confronting policy makers around the world. According to the United Nations, it is estimated that 1.3 million people are killed on the world’s roads each year. If left unchecked, this number could reach 1.9 million fatalities worldwide by 2020. The human cost  is profound – unimaginable suffering and grief.  The economic cost is a staggering $100 billion a year in developing countries alone.
