Very simple city-building game may get old fast.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that players can destroy the cities they have created by using natural disasters such as earthquakes, storms, and meteor showers. Sims -- the city's inhabitants -- can become unhappy to the point where they turn to crime. Also, they can become drunk from visiting bars and liquor stores that the player can build. Overall, however, these instances are rare, and in most cases are controlled by the player.

Yes, Society is to Blame

  • Conclusion: Ultimately, I do feel bad that SimCity Societies is cursed to go misunderstood. It is less an attempt to steer SimCity in a new direction, and more an attempt to fuse a familiar brand and city building theme with another popular, accessible kind of gameplay. Unfortunately, being misunderstood does not mean it's a hidden gem.

  • Excerpt: I’ve always been a huge SimCity fan. I can safely say that SimCity 2000 was one of the first games that I ever became hopelessly addicted to. It was incredibly complex but still managed to be reasonably accessible to novice players. And, it goes without saying that it’s fun to run your own city and be your own boss, setting laws and taxes and placing important buildings around.

  • Conclusion: Quite simply, the game is too easy. Other than balancing society energies and chasing a few meager trophies, you won't find much to entertain you here. The game is far from an "ultimate building block tool kit." SimCity has gone from a complex game to a toned down and largely underwhelming city builder with very little to hold your attention.
  • Pros: An impressive selection of structures, intuitive interface, easy to get into;
  • Cons: Nothing lasting to be had here, superficial gameplay (particularly if you've played SimCity before and liked it), hardly a worthy contribution to the series, frame-rate issues in the retail version.

Sim City Societies Review (PC)

  • Excerpt: Control Freaks Rejoice! I have never really understood the point of God sims like Sim City. To me they always seemed like RTS games but without a point or objective. I could never imagine going into C&C red alert, building up a base with an army, and then doing nothing with them. I did play Sim City for a time, but being a child at the time, I found it boring, and moved on to another game. Playing Sim City Societies has showed me 1 thing. Nothing has changed.
  • Pros: Different types of cities available, Many more buildings that previous sim city games
  • Cons: Unrewarding, Ultimately feels pointless.

  • Conclusion: Het is echt zonde als je dit spel koopt en je hebt toevallig geen internetverbinding op je gamepc en je hebt Windows Vista 64 bit, want dan kan je dit spel dus niet goed spelen. Het spel gaat op den duur een beetje vervelen en dit had ik niet met SimCity 4. Helaas heeft dit spel niet echt een Campaignmodus, maar je kan wel wat doelstellingen behalen zoals een bepaald aantal inwoners.
  • Pros: gameplay;, je moet een wijk onderhouden;, mederlandse taal voor de jongeren.
  • Cons: windows Vista 64-bit niet getest voor de release;, niet het echte SimCity-gevoel.

  • Excerpt: Невероятная скорость, синие иголки, сверкающие красные ботинки и безупречно-белые перчатки – знаменитый еж снова выходит на тропу войны с мировым злом. И в этом раунде на кону не только благополучие мирных жителей, но и репутация героя. Начнем, пожалуй, с похвалы – прежде всего, в адрес графики, отдав должное как версиям для PlayStation 3 и Xbox 360, так и менее броским вариантам на PlayStation 2 и Wii.
