The original was always the best......

AdvantagesVery addictive, Good simulation, Brilliant gameplay

DisadvantagesNont very advanced graphicas (Graphics arn't everything)

"Sim City on the Super Nintendo entertainment system (SNES) in my opinion was the best version of any of the Sim City games, Sim City 2000 and Sim City 3000. Many have said that it was ‘Nintendoised’ and they were spot on, that’s what made it so good.

AdvantagesFirst of its kind on a console, addictive

DisadvantagesPoor graphics, Not as good as PC version

It is also made difficult by the fact that you are unable to use the FUNDS ..." Read review

This is hard

AdvantagesOriginal gameplay, disasters

DisadvantagesToo difficult, naff graphics

"Aah, Sim City. That most wonderous of strategy games. Everyone's heard of it. Everyone's played it. No-one I know has ever done well on it. Sim City on the SNES is impossible! You could start off with the most plausible, well fouded city ever, but still lose funds, people, and everntually go bankrupt. And of course, if that doesn't work, there's always a disaster around the corner... To be fair, though, Sim City is a pretty well thought out game. ..." Read review
