Summary

Eh...I guess it's possible to like it.

The Good

Nothing really. Everyone thought the original SimCity was great and, yes, it was fun. But Maxis just didn't tickle my nosehair right when it came around with SC2000. True, the graphics is much better and the game is more complex, but it was not more fun. Maybe the "SimCity" concept could only be pushed so far.

The Bad

I got bored by it even before the shrink wrap came off.

The Bottom Line

Another one for you gaming archeologists. But if you were serious about digging dead bones, you should really go for the original SimCity instead. But whatever you do, STAY AWAY from SimAnt!!!
