    You like nice graphics? Go and buy it. Otherwise, stick with your current copy of "SimCity 3000"... and save your kopeks for the new crop of exciting releases scheduled to hit stores in the next couple of months.

    Provides hours of entertainment....and then you start to use cheats and it provides hour more.

    Skip Simcity 4, its terrible DRM and
    "improvements" to gameplay and just by this for the classic SimCity experience we all know an love. Full Review »

    First i felt overwhelmed by the lot of new features this game delivered. It took me a complete "learning" game session and one not too well designed city to understand all new aspects of this game. At the same time it became obvious that one of the main aspects of the game -money- completely fails its role. Once your city fulfills a few minimum requirements you will always automatically get certain contract business buildings. From that point on you will have enough money to easily expand your city to for example 200k citizens and you will just get more and more with every new zone you place on the map soon having too much money to spent. Feels close to cheating and somehow pointless and boring. Full Review »
