However, it's in the disasters where the movies really stand out. Shots of actual disasters are overlaid with the voice of the Sim News Anchorwoman reporting on the disaster. Occasionally, we get to see the Sims responding to the disaster, either by running away in terror or by rioting. This is not to say that the enhanced version is totally without flaws. Every time you click on a button, the voice of the city manager tells you what you have chosen and how much it costs. Startling at first, after a while, her voice becomes incredibly annoying.

This rendering, though, drops many lifelike aspects: You can no longer issue bonds, differentiate between industrial and residential tax rates, or provide such amenities as plumbing and schools. Perhaps most annoying, the graphics are less detailed and the map's scale can't be altered. Instead, you get videos of SimResidents going about their business and of public servants scolding you for tasks left undone. City limits, indeed.
