A great game, even though it has problems

The Good
Being able to build your own cities in the Sim City Urban Renewal Kit and driving through them.

The graphics are so realistic, I feel as if I'm actually driving.

The game's scenarios are challenging and fun.

You can build your own cars in the car factory(but you can only use models of the games regular cars).

I love how the game is very realistic. You have to fill up at gas stations, repair your car when parts of it are damaged, and even change the tires and engine!

One of my most favorite things about this game is the radio. The commercials are hilarious and the music sounds so good. You can also change the station .

The Bad
There is no horn.

The bugs. I see pedestrians walking funny and backwards, parked cars on top of each other and on parking lot lights, and being able to drive through gas stations, power lines, and trees.

That message that says: "An unrecoverable error has occurred and Streets of Sim City must quit."



The Bottom Line
If you are the type that likes driving and racing games, this game is for you. But expect some bugs.

Complete rubbish.

The Good
The concept is executed decently. That's pretty much all.

The Bad
Where the devil do I even start? The graphics are atrocious in DirectDraw mode. If you use 3DFX, it doesn't look any better. The people in the last game that shared the same engine (Simcopter), people were a mix of flat shaded polygons for the body and 2D for their heads. But here, they're sprites compressed in Smacker video format. The cars are just vehicles made around the 1960's and 70's, if you compare it to Interstate '76, which was their competitor at the time of release. The scenarios are really awful with no set time of day or weather. It's just daylight (or nighttime) in clear weather all the time you start a scenario. The gameplay is just 'shoot, take package, deliever it, kill more cars', repeat. The AI just drives around, tries to shoot, and on some occasions on hi-end systems, they just use the Hopper due to the engine not allowing you to handle the frame-rate on a new PC. The voice acting in the scenarios is just awfully made. While it's a K-A rated game, expect a bit of mild language here and there. The music is repetitve, five or six songs per station, and that's it. However, there is a mix function that plays songs in order, and a option to play only music, DJ announcer toggle on/off and adverts between songs on/off. The sounds are just some sound effects recycled from Simcopter, along with a sound effect shamelessly taken from the film The Junkman. However, the sounds are awful to hear. The glitches are the worst thing that kills this game. The physics are broken, the turning is wrong, and braking is as if you let go off the gas pedal. The clipping is really terrible, you go through gas stations, trees and power lines. If something goes wrong with the game, it goes into an "unrecoverable error" and the game quits. Has someone playtested the game? Nobody.

The Bottom Line
There's nothing I could describe it. It's a mess that some people bought it when it came out, and no sequel to either Simcopter and Streets of Simcity was done. If you see it on a store, and online, don't buy it.

Don't get it!

The Good
You can cruise around in your SimCity 2000 city (and, if you have SC2k, and SimCity, you can convert SimCity cities and drive in them too). The racing levels were fun.

The Bad
The framerate is horible! I had to run it in 320/240 resolution (low-res) to get a decent frame rate. The missions are almost imposible. The controls are the worst I have seen in a racing game. You try to turn a little and the car spins around 90.

The Bottom Line*
DO NOT GET IT, ONE OF THE WORST GAMES EVER!
