Another SIM game, another amazingly addictive game building stuff for non-living people.
Gameplay: Really fun once you get the hang of it, although it can get a bit repetetive, but fun nonetheless. You'll be building away, trying to find the best thing for your people as mayor. Although it has no real storyline, you can grow attached to the people living in your city. It's fun playing God/Mayor.
Graphics: Nothing that great, it's good, but it's not great. It's nothing a PC can't handle.
Sound: Although it can be funny and amusing sometimes, the sounds aren't anything that great, and nothing to celebrate over, it's nothing different from the other games it came out with.
Value: It's replay value is great. You might try beating the "campaign" mode more than once just trying to find a better way of doing it. Once you get tired of those, you can start making your own cities, see how great you can make your cities, and how unique you can make it. With all the things the game has to offer, the uniqueness is limitless.
Tilt: Overall, the game is just another hit. You'll start playing something that seems so simple and plain, but end up being sucked into hours after hours of gameplay trying to perfect your cities and make your citizens as happy as possible.
