    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 SimCity 2000, which I LOVED.

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

    This DS version is a pretty big departure from most SimCity efforts. Switching things up isn't necessarily a bad thing, but a game with "Creator" in its title should make the player feel more like a God than a clumsy urban planner taking vague orders from a cartoon boss.
