But aside from all the game mechanics, this game is simply fun. There is a thrill that comes from watching your city come alive with cars and houses that spring up almost magically. And there is a satisfaction with knowing you have the skills to design and run a city, even if only a simulated one. The games' three difficulty levels also keep you moving onwards and upwards in your pursuit of city perfection.

Jede Stadt sieht also wieder anders aus, sogar jedes Siedlungsgebiet kann mittels ‘Terraformer‘ anders gestaltet werden. Somit ist auch dieser Klassiker unter den Simulationsspielen sicher für jeden leicht zu erraten, kann somit gekauft werden und wird einen über Monate bzw. Jahre hinweg faszinieren.

SimCity sur Macintosh est peut-être rendu un peu triste par la réalisation monochrome, mais il faut reconnaître qu’on aurait difficilement pu en demander plus à ce portage tant il tire parfaitement parti des capacités et de l’interface de la machine d’Apple, à commencer par la haute résolution. Si on regrettera que l’ambiance sonore soit toujours quasi-inexistante, on appréciera que les développeurs aient trouvé le temps de peaufiner encore un peu le titre.
