User Rating: 9.1 | SimCity 3000 PC
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 much u tax people, who you trade with from the outside world etc. The game has so many things to keep track off, the only thing im going to say is, your never going to be able to relax in this game :P The gameplay is goalless + been able to direct your own creation has an immense amout of immersive gameplay + satisfaction when done right

Graphics: 7/10

Simcity's graphics are starting to show their age, but the game is still colourfull and everything still looks like what its meant to be + as a bonus its all in 2D (well, its a bonus to me, 2D games rock)

Sound: 8/10

The sound gets the job done, you'll hear the odd dog bark or two, but the best thing about the sound is the musical scores, Blues scores and fast paced music suit the mood of the game, the scores are truely excellent

Value: 10/10

Unlimited, you can do what you want, whenever u want + start over aswell.

Tilt: 10/10 Excellent idea by Will Wright, which many games have imitated but never come to the game's series success
