  1. Sim City goes all Bill and Ted's Awesome Reconstruction Adventure. Quite simply the only regional administration simulation you need to own.
  2. While it's essentially the same as it ever was, the added bells and whistles make this the best SimCity game on the DS.
  3. The most fun I've had with the SimCity franchise since SimCity 2000.

    Another tip-top DS god game. [Dec 2008, p.80]

    A worthy entry in the series that manages to one-up its DS predecessor.

    Here is one of the most interesting approaches to the SimCity concept. The slow pace can push away players expecting for quick fun, and the lack of more save slots can be frustrating for those of like to keep their cities. [Oct 2008]
  7. Taking a page from the Civilization handbook, SimCity Creator offers an enjoyable evolutionary building experience.

    I always liked simcity on PC and overall this stays pretty true to the franchise, you can build up a city through the ages and unlock newI always liked simcity on PC and overall this stays pretty true to the franchise, you can build up a city through the ages and unlock new buildings to watch your sims thrive. The only problem is that you have less freedom to do what you want in this game. There are always things going wrong and yu can only have 2 saves which means that those people who want to have serious cities and fun cities will really have to choose carefully. The map is also too small which means that it gets too hard to keep growing your city. If you like simcity like I do you will still find enjoyment for a while but its the little things that let it down. Full Review »

    Great portable experience. Very cool update of the SimCity classic. Gets big points for cramming so much into a DS title. Plays a lot like Great portable experience.
