Who wants to be omnipotent? C'mon be truthful, put your hands up... ok, 1,2, 3,4 ,5, 6 of you? The rest of you shame on you, admit your feelings. And buy this game, because it pandas to our most basic human desire (if you ignore people like Herzberg and Taylor) which is to be in control. With...

“A very good game”

published 23/12/2000

Provery addictive

Conscan get boring

Sim City first burst onto the gaming scene many years ago. It created a massive impact on the way we look at game. This is because Sim City is NOT a game in the sense which most people see them. It has no level structure, and no particular goal. Essentially all it is, is a suped up executive toy...

One of the first (probably the first) god game was Sim City. At the time, it was an utterly new concept, and even now there are few games like it. The idea of building and running your own city captured everyone's imagination, and spawned countless 'Sim' spin-offs, most notably the recent 'The...

ConsIt's a bit boring

I have to start by saying that the original idea of the Sim City games was fantastic. You are given all the tools required to build your own city, and if that wasn't enough you can then see if it all works. You design the complete layout, transport structures, power distribution, etc and even...

I've been playing the Sim City series for several years now, starting with the Super Nintendo version of the original Sim City Classic, to more recently, the latest in the series, Sim City 4, all of which have given me many hours of fun. The premise of building your own city may at first seem a...

I was out shopping the other day, down Edinburgh’s Princes Street, with my Hubby, Sister and my friend from Australia. My sister and I both fancied getting a PC game, as we both had hardly any. My friend recommended Sim City as an extremely playable game, where you can have many a lost weekend...

ConsGets repetitive after a while

One of the first games I played when I purchased my first PC (an Olivetti 386sx) was Sim City. The concept of being able to build a city, watch it grow, save it from disasters and ensure that it becomes a metropolis was intriguing and I spent many sleepless nights trying to create Simonsville...

I'm not really one for computer games - I get easily frustrated when the group of people shaped pixels don't do what I want. My own fault I know, but it still has the potential to wind me up. However, hearing the concept of the Sim city games really quite appealed to me. And when Sim City 3000...

“3000th City Sim”

published 10/05/2001

Proupdated 2D graphics, good internet facilities

Consincredibly hard, gets boring,

Don't ask this is ridiculously hard. You build what they want and soon they ask for more, and quickly you get bankrupt and go on loans to make matters worst. The graphics do not run smooth at all, and it's a boring game once you exceed 1 hour playing on it (not when you first play it though). The...

Sim City 3000 for those who don't know is a game where you play the role as mayor of a city, and your task is to build and expand the city, making lots of money (Simoleons) and having the greatest population in the neighbourhood. There is no real aim to this game - there are no missions and...
