  1. No matter how you look at it, "SimCity 3000 Unlimited" is a city full of fun.
  2. 91
    With all the options available to players, the added building sets, the scenarios, the create-your-own building feature, all the goodness from SimCity 3000, some tutorials thrown in for new players to even out the package, and the literally unlimited amount of cool stuff available on SimCity Exchange, it's certainly worth picking up.
  3. While seemingly dogpiled with new buildings and features to impress the first-timer, it's actually become so feature-dense and micromanagerial... that only hard-core SimPsychopaths will really be able to appreciate the package
  4. If you're a "SimCity" fan who's not interested in solving other people's problems in the prefabricated scenarios or making your own material for the game, then you can let "Unlimited" pass you by.
  5. Like "SimCity 2000" and "SimCity 3000," this version can be extremely challenging and requires more micromanaging than even New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani would want.
  6. The limitless possibilities that Unlimited offers with its tools can be easily overlooked by the fanatical aspiring mayors of PC-land.
  7. 40
    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.

    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 wellFirst 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. Collapse
