A true classic

Strengths: Detailed graphics; tons of options and controls; different gameplay modes

Weakness: 3D views limited to 4 angles - makes some lots on hills hard to see; no Godzilla-monster like previous versions

SimCity has come a long way over the years. This latest version brings updates the graphics and gameplay to what you'd expect from a modern computer game - it almost feels like a real city at times. I was really impressed by the sheer amount of control that it gives the player. This is a great game for all ages and has different levels of difficulty, for beginners who just want to get a city...

SimCity...now larger than ever

Strengths: Good graphics. Ability to zoom in at better quality than before. Ability to play with characters from the Sims. Original and expansion in one package.

Weakness: Annoying bugs that require patching.

SimCity 4 improved quite a lot from the previous games of the SimCity franchise. The game uses 3D engine to deliver better graphics than previous games. The buildings look more realistic and have better shadows, the people and vehicles also looks better. It is possible to zoom in at the city and have a better look at the people, vehicles, buildings and such, than the previous games. Custom...

SimCity4 Deluxe

Strengths: Much more "real life" than earlier versions. I enjoyed having the "people" around town.

Weakness: Takes too much time for cities to develop

Takes a long time for a city to develop. Needs lots of micromanagement. ADDICTIVE!! PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! Be prepared to spend HOURS playing.. I would buy this game again.

SIMCITY4 EXPANSION

Strengths: LOTS OF OPTIONS TO WORK ARROUND

Weakness: BUILDING DESIGNS NEED MORE OPTIONS, INDUSTRY OPTIONS TOO, GAME CAN BECOME TO LONG, BE READY FOR SOME LONG HOURS...WHICH MANY OF US JUST CAN'T AFFORD!!

FABULOUS!!! SO MUCH THAT I HAD TO THROW IT AWAY (B/C HIDDING IT JUST WASN'T HELPING IT) TO FOCUS IN COLLEGE... AND YET FOUND MY WAY BACK TO THE STORES TO PURCHASE IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. (STRORES) = MORE THAN ONE TILL I COULD FIND IT.
A REAL ADDICTION...PLAY IT A YOUR OWN RISK...

If you liked previous versions of...

Strengths: The best graphics to date in the Sim City series. The simulation feels even closer to reality than previous versions, and with more possibilities and choices to make.

Weakness: It can take a very long time to develop a thriving city and requires a lot of micromanagement.

If you liked previous versions of Sim City, I believe you can enjoy this one, too. Just be ready to dedicate long hours to playing it in order to grow desirable cities.
