No matter how much you play it, you'll never stop having fun.
The gameplay is fantastic. You can edit the terrain in any way you like: valleys, mountains, islands, rivers or even volcanoes!
The variety of buildings is not immense but you'll love the feeling of building and imagining the city of your dreams.
There is also the evolution of time, which allows you new features as time passes such as new power plants, airports, subways and also new buildings from a city hall to a futuristic arcology.
Many disasters can also be encountered and dealt with from worker's riots to alien attacks. But if you prefer the calm of construction only, you may also deactivate the option.
The graphics are okay. What can be disappointing is you cant really zoom in into your city. Also the music can get quite annoying but the sounds can really add life to the decor of your town.
In overall, I'd say this game was and is still very innovative. In my opinion, SimCity 2000 deserves to be the best of the series and a true classic for all ages.
