SimCity 2000 really brings your city - and its resident Sims - to life. If this game were any more realistic, it'd be illegal to turn off.
*SimCity 2000 has all the features, flexibility, art, animation, and power you need to build the city of your dreams. *Your cities can be mammoth or minuscule, metro or retro, serene or silly, wonderful or weird - they're yours to do with as you please. *Totally customize your terrain from flat prairie land to mountain vistas. *Run subways and utilities underground without wasting land or compromising your aesthetics. *The local newspaper provides valuable information and keeps you in touch with your SimConstituents. *Scenario challenges include the 1991 Oakland fire, unemployment in Flint, Michigan, and Hurricane Hugo hits Charleston. *A multi-level interface makes SimCity 2000 easy to control - but with added depth just below the surface, waiting 'til you're ready for it. *Schools, hospitals, universities, libraries, museums, parks, zoos, stadiums, marinas, prisons, and more are yours to build. *Imports saved cities from SimCity and SimCity Classic.

Destination Software has converted Sim City 2000 -- Will Wright's timeless city simulator classic -- to the GBA. As mayor and city planner, you'll have the challenge of transforming a single-stoplight Podunk into a massive, bustling metropolis. To succeed, you must strike a fine balance while laying down residential, commercial and industrial zones to shape the landscape of your city. When your village has become a town, you'll need to add emergency services, power plants, parks, museums and other buildings to expand your city and satisfy the needs of your sim citizens.
Sim City 2000 is a superbly designed city simulator that suffers from less than stellar play control. The underlying game is fantastic -- and offers the same outstanding gameplay experience as it did a decade ago on the PC -- but the clunky and unwieldy GBA controls nearly scuttle the fun. In bigger cities, simply moving the molasses-dipped cursor can be a chore. If you're rabid about the prospect of Sim City on your GBA, and have the patience to watch the action unfold at a fairly slow pace, this game may be for you.

From Those Wonderful Folks Who Gave You Gridlock, Blackouts and Runaway Taxes, Comes Raw Sewage, Yellow Journalism and the Subway at 3 a.m.
Beneath the polished facade lies a seething cauldron of angry taxpayers, broken water mains and other challenges that will take you uptown, downtown, even underground. Now entering SimCity 2000 - the ultimate city simulator.
This long-awaited follow-up to our software landmark, SimCity®, makes simulated real estate, in a word, realer. In it, you get multiple viewing angles. You get to import your old SimCities. You get to terraform your landscape. You get total control of a subterranean web of water pipes and subways. And you get it all in gripping, eye-imploding 3-D.
So pack up those old programs and move to SimCity 2000. Everything that started the SimCity revolution. In a vivid new evolution.
More SimCity flavor - less salt. The desalinization plant pumps fresh water into pipes you lay in the new underground level.
