"SimCity is a near-perfect fusion of the classic simulation game with modern social and online play elements. It is in every way the fully realized evolution of the franchise and a much welcome iteration, perfectly engineered to dispense the maximum amount of fun in the most efficient way possible. It is highly addicting, but there are worse things to be addicted to. Just be sure to set an alarm." - Polygon.com
The defining city simulation is back! Create the city you desire and make the choices that shape your city and power the Sims within it. Every decision, big or small, has real consequences. Invest in heavy industry and your economy will soar—but at the expense of your Sims’ health as pollution spreads. Implement green technology and improve your Sims’ lives while risking higher taxes and unemployment. Team up with your friends to solve global challenges: launch a space shuttle, reduce carbon emissions, or build magnificent wonders. Compete on global and regional leaderboards to be the richest, the dirtiest, the happiest or the best place to visit!
The new Single-Player Mode allows you to play SimCity anytime, anywhere, without the need of an active Internet connection.
Constructible Worlds - Creative and customizable world that offers unique gameplay benefits, all with a fun tactile interface.
Sims Matter - The Sims in your city speak to you directly and it’s up to you to respond to their needs. Will you listen and be the toast of the town? Or abuse your power for fame and fortune?
Specialize in What You Love - Mold your city as a casino resort, manufacturing hub, educational enclave, and more, and then watch as a unique look and feel spread throughout your city.
Multiplayer - Build a region with friends for the first time! Collaborate or compete in regional and global challenges and make decisions that impact the greater SimCity World.
GlassBox Engine - SimCity introduces GlassBox, the revolutionary simulation technology that gives you the power to impact individual Sims lives, manage city level simulation, and balance multiple city simulations at once.

As a long time SimCity player, who played through 2000 & 3000, and as someone quite fond of the genre, i hate to say that i wanted more from this game. Although the first hours flew by (as in most SimCity games) it came into a screeching halt rather quickly. This happened astonishingly quick, i was amazed to realize that while i tweaking and refining and expanding my city...ohhh...i'm out of space...WAIT?!?! WHAT?!?!? The mechanics are fine at best, AI isn't the strongest, and some things are just annoying (map too small, cannot district, game shows no indication what is wrong when something is very wrong). Bottom Line: good game, not as good as it should be to beat the competition (hint, hint...)
Granted, this is the first Sim city game I played, and to only one, but I just love to sit down after a hard day at school, and watch as my city grows. Plus, since it almost looks like the sims, even my girlfriend likes this little game. It's amazing how much a small thing like this can mean. I never tried the multiplayer, so i don't know what that's like. Maybe one day. Bottom line, this game is sweet!
me encanto este juego es divertido y tiene muy buenos graficos los recomiendo
Unfortunately some features are missing, such as underground transport, underground water pipes, and overhead electricity wires, meaning these resources are distributed via the road system only with little customisation. My biggest disappointment with the game was the small cities you can build, you are only permitted a small area and you can fill it with buildings in a fairly short time, at which point you are left simply maintaining the city rather than expanding it.
jugador espa?ol, si me est?s leyendo es porque est?s interesado en ?ste gran juegazo. Y c?mo no estarlo, yo por mi cuenta he sido un fiel seguidor de la saga de SimCity desde el SimCity 4, y nunca me quej? de la composici?n del videojuego. Prob? otros t?tulos como Cities XL, aunque sinceramente no me atraparon como ?sta saga. ?Qu? esperas? ??nete y construye tu ciudad de ensue?o ahora mismo! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you are reading me, is because you are interested in this great game. And how not to be, I myself have been a loyal follower of the SimCity saga since SimCity 4, and I never complained about the composition of the video game. I tried other titles like Cities XL, although I honestly did not get caught like this saga. What are you waiting for? Join and build your dream city right now!
