Une vue 3D isométrique, très fonctionnelle, constitue le cœur des graphismes. Avec des sprites différents pour chacun des immeubles. Rien de spécial sur la bande sonore. Les bruitages sont, sensiblement, les mêmes. Par ailleurs, difficile de concevoir une version optimisée de Sim City. Quant à la durée de vie, c'est le style de jeu qui se prolonge des mois entiers. Si seulement, il y avait plus de nouveautés... Au final, le meilleur jeu de stratégie sur N64. Par défaut, ainsi que pour ses qualités. Il est, toutefois, conseillé aux adeptes de jeux d'arcades de rester à l'écart !

Sim City 2000 on PCs was one of the best sim games of its time. But now, four years later, the original system and graphics look dated -- add to that the N64 version's ridiculously bad sound and headache inducing flicker graphics, and you've got three huge reasons why the game won't come to the US. Unless a courageous US publisher invests lots of cash into making the game look and play better, stay away as far as possible from this game. Considering that the PC and Mac original can be had for only a few bucks, there is virtually no reason to recommend this game to the readers of this site -- even if your Japanese is impeccable. Avoid Sim City 2000 at all costs and wait for Nintendo's promising Sim City 64.
