    You can't make me stop playing

    I was quite sad when I broke the disk to SimCity 3000, but it turned out to be a very good thing. SimCity 4 is a much better game. It is a very highly addicting game that I have spent countless hours playing. I have h... Read Full Review

    There is more beneath the surface of Sim City 4 than meets the eye.

    I have always been a fan of the Sim City series, putting in a huge amount of time into Sim City 2, and a decent amount into Sim City 3. Sim City is the game that started this Sim craze, and is the best or better of thos... Read Full Review

    Ah Yes Sim City 4

    Captivating for hours, but soon dreaded for boredom... Maybe it's the compelling graphics, they grab you, then drop you... I don't know, but the game is just outstanding, except for those parts where you're just scream... Read Full Review

    The original Simcity 4 was great, but the expansion pack: rush hour really sucks. It changes a lot of the game's gameplay. You can drive cars in your city, tanks, helicopters, air planes, you can do missions like "escape... Read Full Review

    A great game, particularly with extra custom content and mods from the internet community.

    This is primarily a review of the game in light of custom content and the game's community (I am too biased to try and write a review without this theme, and besides, you can simply read GameSpot's for that, though I thi... Read Full Review

    It's good, but after a little play time, it gets pretty boring

    SimCity 4 was good, but when you add rush hour, it got even better. The thing is, it is fun at first, but then when you start to build your city, it gets hard to get a good increase in money, and then you can't really do... Read Full Review

    This game is great from creating mountains and oceans, to deciding where to put an airport. Sim City4 is fun for all.

    Sim City 4 Deluxe Edition is just plain fun. You create mountains valleys, oceans and rivers. Then in this space you create a city by selecting houses, commercial buildings, or industrial buildings. Then you select the s... Read Full Review
