    Yeah, the game has it's limitations compared to the PC version, but the fact is it's portable-sized and it's a pretty decent conversion so those of you who gave it a mediocre rating eat my salty cheesburger!!

    This is a very good game and of course it is'nt as good as the computer version - please remember it on a little gameboy and not a huge monster of a machine !! (the computer)

  1. The overwhelming dryness of this style of game, along with the portability issues that hang over it like a rather nasty storm mean that this game is best left to the PC if at all possible, which is a far better platform for the amazing depth, strategy and variety that this game offers.

    For all the pros and cons of this type of game, Sim City 2000 has the stamp of quality. It is very well presented graphically although it doesn't have quite the feel of a bustling city the PC version has.
  3. Despite the technical limitations, SimCity 2000 remains an enjoyable, challenging way to pass the time. It isn't the direct conversion I'd hoped for, but for twenty bucks, it's plenty sufficient to the task.
