I’m not a big fan of the game, but Machi Koro is could do so cool city editions, would just require a retheme of the cards.

Machi Koro Review - The Thoughtful Gamer
But it’s over all too soon and the end game is sudden and unexciting for everyone except the winner. That said, the art is very nice, and for those kinds of gamers who just want to roll some dice, relax, and not think very hard, Machi Koro might be worth picking up. The game flows quickly, and it always feels nice to roll some dice and collect money for half an hour

Machi Koro Review
Final Score: 3.5 Stars – A light game that’s very accessible, but feels almost like it’s missing something until you get the Harbor expansion. Hits:

Machi Koro: Bright Lights, Big City adds a lot more variety to an already fun game - The Board Game Family
Machi Koro: Bright Lights, Big City hits the sweet spot in the family board game market with its balance of fun, lucky dice rolling odds with a bit of light strategy. So many good choices, it’s sometimes hard to decide which to buy. Why do we like Machi Koro: Bright Lights, Big City more than the original?

Machi Koro 2 Game Review – Meeple Mountain
The Final Say. For fans of the original Machi Koro, Machi Koro 2 will feel like a welcome upgrade, but only if they don’t already own MK1.

My family seems to like those games. I also recommend Castles if the Mad King, Suburbia and Machi Koro. Both are pretty light but can be competitive and strategic

Machi Koro Legacy Game Review – Meeple Mountain
Ultimately, Machi Koro Legacy is built on the shaky foundation that more is always better. It’s a victim of its own urban sprawl, a Potemkin village full of bright and beautiful ideas with little substance or follow-through backing them. Can you have fun with it? Absolutely!

I LOATH Machi Koro and don't get why it was so hyped. It is an awful game.
A friend bought it and we played once and it was so bad, but we were like "let's give it another chance" and it was worse, he sold it next day after that.
