    SimCity DS is a good time waster with you being able to create your own city and be mayor, however it can get a little boring from time to time because there's not much too it, it kind of feels like a dumbed-down version of SimCity 3000; not to mention they took out the option to cause disasters! Really? You took that staple out of this game that was so iconic in the past games? Also there are a lot of people who will come and constantly pester you about random things they want in the city in a really stupid and immature way. Despite all these big flaws, the game is not bad and it still has plenty of replay-ability. Expand

  1. It's good to have Sim City available when you’re on the move and if you ever want to go back to the game in the distant future, you don’t have to install the game again and deal with compatibility issues! [JPN Import]
  2. Just what the DS should be doing. As long as it's done right. Which it is. Ropey disaster minigames and the odd niggle aside, this is right up our street. [May 2007, p.62]
  3. It’s far too easy to tap on a square that’s actually adjacent to where you thought you were planting a tree/erecting a power station. [May 2007, p.125]
