    Build a city (or destroy it) . . .

    So this is a series that has been around for some time. Maxis has been one of the more successful long-term companies in the business and they were set to deliver with this one. Sim City 3000 contains all of the city... Read Full Review

    This is by far the best SimCity game of the series. This game is truly magical. The first time I played this game, I knew it was great. The gameplay mechanics are amazing. You control all of your city. You control t... Read Full Review

    SC3000 takes a step in to the next generation of gaming with brand new graphics, and a revamped gameplay. First, the graphics are totally new, and i think the makers tried to go for the psuedo-3D graphics, and they did ... Read Full Review

    Possibly the best in the series

    Introduction: Well, SC3KU is a remake of the previous SIMCity 3000 game. SC3K itself has to be, in my own opinion, the best of the SC games. Maxis took there award winning series of SC games and brought it into the moder... Read Full Review

    As a sim-disliker, Simcity is my go-to series when I want simulation. Great game that falls just short of being classic.

    Simcity 3000:rnSimulation games aren't my favorite cup of tea. Actually I only got Simcity 3000 because of it being a part of 5 game bundle. Despite my first impressions I'm happy this game was part of the pack.rnrnIn Si... Read Full Review

    Addictive

    I didn't play this game very much, but when I did it was very addictive. Though I did get pissed off often when the aliens or some disaster would happen and make all my work fall to the ground, but that is all part of li... Read Full Review

    if you're new to the series, it is slightly difficult to pick up, but overall a solid game with good replay value

    The game has passable graphics for its time, a good replay value, and good sound/soundtrack to augment the main fetures of the game. the game itself does not stray far enough from the earlier simcity games to make it a ... Read Full Review

    One of my fave PC games.

    Sim City is huge. I mean, who doesn't want their own city to control. Aren't we just all evil villains inside looking for world domination, but we can't do that, so we settle to control a city in Sim City, and Sim City 3... Read Full Review

    Revolutionary

    Simcity 3000 is the 1st + only game I have played in the series, and IMHO is awesome in everyway. Gameplay: 9/10 Simcity allows you to build your own city (duh!) and control everything inside it, for example how mu... Read Full Review
