5.0 out of 5 stars SimCity 3000 UK, I LOVE THIS GAME, 31 Dec 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Sim City 3000 - UK Edition (PC CD) (Video Game)
im actually doing my review from when i had the game a few years ago and im back to buy it again.
The game basically involves building and running a city from scratch and making as good (or as bad) a job as you can.
I love all the scenarios on this game and as a proud Liverpudlian i think the 'Liven up Liverpool' is my favorite.
The graphics are quite basic even for the time but theyre still detailed and nice even though thats not the point.
The gameplay is where its at, build a farm town, i bustling metropolis, or a haven for crime and pollution.
Its upto you as your desicions affect how it goes. If youre running low on funds then you can 'sell out' to the toxic waste plant, maximum security prison and others, these are good for the funds but make your sims not too happy.
If youre doing well, the sims will reward you with many things but remember, with good things (casino=money) comes bad (crime), so you have to get the balance right.

If you have a deficit or abundance of something (power, water, landfill sites), you can make deals with neighbours to buy/sell your services. For example, if you dont want much air pollution, you can send your trash to a neighbour for a price, and vice-versa on power and water as long as there is a physical link to the neighbour, ie power lines, water pipes and road/rail.

One of my favorite parts is disasters, you can make the best city ever, and if it seems too perfect, UNLEASH HELL ON IT, you can have fires, locusts (great on farm towns), UFO's, tornados, and, my personal favorite RIOTS!!!

The addictiveness of this game is where its at, ive lost many a nights playing this when my plan was "only a hour before bed" so if youre into strategy games budget for a long time as its easy to get lost.
If youre into strategy games they you will love this game as much as i do. I love it so much im buying it again.
Have fun, and dont lose touch with reality.
(PS if youre using a laptop, i will advise buying a mouse)
