SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition (MAC)
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition includes both SimCity 4 and the Rush Hour expansion pack!
The classic city simulation game returns to the Mac!
In SimCity™ 4, you don’t just build your city; you breathe life into it. Sculpt mountains, dig riverbeds, and seed forests as you lay the groundwork for your creation. Then, use your god-like powers to construct the most realistic metropolis you can imagine.
Whether you want to build mansions on mountainsides or cross canyons with bridges, the impact of your decisions is immediate. But while each click of the mouse can create, it has equal capacity to destroy. Capping an erupting volcano might save your city, or it might reroute lava down busy city streets. Sending police to quell a riot might calm down the crowd, or it might spur even further anarchy. With every decision you make, your city and your Sims will respond – for better or for worse. It’s up to you to be their guide.
The SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition includes both SimCity 4 and the Rush Hour expansion pack, which gives you more control over your city’s transportation options, plus two bonus disasters: UFO attack and Autosaurus Wrecks.
We even included the exclusive Mac “Custom Tunes” feature that allows your iTunes library to be played in the game!

Up until the release of Cities: Skylines, SimCity 4 was the only city simulator worth recommending. Paradox's C:S might seem more appealing because of its more modern graphics, active community and better modding support and it is an improvement in many ways. However, I would still say that SimCity 4 is worth playing. The isometric graphics of SC4 are really, really good looking and because the game is essentially in glorified 2D, it can get away with an incredible amount of detail. In terms of pure mechanical realism, SimCity 4 is still unbeaten. The game just 'works'. And even with S:C's amazing modding community, in terms of sheer content (and more importantly, quality content) I still think SimCity 4 wins, at least for now. At its sale price of £2.50 there's absolutely no reason for a city simulator fan not to buy this.

This game is still artistically beautiful, before anyone decides it's too old to be worthwhile. There are so many different buildings, landscapes, and even citizen personalities that no playthrough is ever the same. The HUD is streamlined enough to not be confusing but has more than enough options within it to always feel like you can handle a situation exactly how you actually would. It's still a great buy and a great bargain. I still play it.

Like all SimCity titles, you can build from scratch into just about anything that you want it to be. But sim 4 has every thing right about itself . The only down side is that its graphics are a bit outdated but still the fun you have playing it pretty much covers it up
