Summary: As an avid player of Sim City 2000, Sim City 3000 and Sim City 4, I was instantly drawn to own this for the DS. Many who review this game compare it to the PC games and point out its shortcomings and I will say this: its not as pretty as Sim City 4. But its not possible for it to be and that's just fine.
Summary: The graphics were surpassingly good, think sim city 3000. In fact its a watered down crossover of sim 3000. My first time playing i hated it, the second time i played for about 2 hrs and had lots of fun. Then all of a sudden my city gets attacked by a giant ape. No big deal, I will just fix the mess... This is where the controls are BROKEN.
Summary: I ordered this game a couple weeks ago and have been playing it a lot. It's fun to play, but is basically the same as Sim City for the PC. The graphics are good when it comes to DS graphics. Gameplay is pretty easy, but a little slow sometimes. The only things I don't like about this game are the repetitive citizen requests. They get kind of annoying, but they give you the option to see them or ignore them, so it isn't too bad.
Summary: A fun and enjoyable game, I would have given it five stars except for one reason. You can only save one game at a time! I know that my kids would play it a little more often if it wasn't for that.
Summary: Well maybe not quite, this mini version plays like the SimCities of old but gets very annoying when people keep "barging into the mayor's office" to complain about this and that. Its almost every 10 minutes.
Summary: SimCity DS brings out all of the fun of the original computer game in a portable Nintendo DS format! While SimCiy DS is not a prefect game it is highly addictive and fun. Pros- - To completely build your city you will have to spend hours and hours playing. - The game is pretty intuitive and easy to play from the begining - The "Simulation" of the game is interesting from a master planning and economics stand-point.
