Sim City 2000: Gardening on the Move,
This review is from: SimCity 2000 (Video Game)
Having followed this series through it's many incarnations I have enjoyed creating (and destroying) goodness knows how many sim worlds over the years.
I was first hooked on it's very first outing on the Amiga, a good 15 years ago. And alot of that original formula remains. You have control over the environment of the city, of amenaties, of land planning etc, of city spending on emergency services etc. And dependant on how you do, sims will move in or out of the city.
What has got alot better since the original is the level of detail and variety of builds you can have in you town. Special buildings abound as do the choice of buildings for you key services, from police, fire, schools to hostipals and prisons.
Another past time I have developed since playing Sim City, is statisticion. There are a wonderous array of graphs and stats to help you guage what is going on in your land. And you can spend hours just picking through these.
All in all a great game. I could compare it to gardening on the computer, there is always another little corner to prune and get right in time for the next fiscal year.
Go on, treat yourself to some quality time.
