    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 gra...

    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 broug...

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

    Build a city (or destroy it) . . .

    Rated on January 26, 2006 by fenix1022

    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 cont...

    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...

    Revolutionary

    Rated on August 02, 2007 by oliver_475

    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...
