Summary

Great addictive gamplay but the original did it better for me

The Good

The follow-up to the seminal SimCity, an unputdownable game. The sequal carried on in this fashion and added isometric graphics which no doubt added to the game.

The Bad

What makes the original better for me is the lack of waterpipes and the lack of complication. Too many new buildings added more complication. I prefered the simplicity and pure addictiveness of the original.

The Bottom Line

Briliant game, be sure to check out the original though, although it is dated.
