Yes, Society is to Blame

Cheat Code Central
5 March 2008
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Summary: There's something not quite right with SimCity Societies. It's a highly casual take on the city-building genre, which isn't bad in and of itself, but it comes across like a politician's campaign speech: rambling on and on, but with no real depth or point. There are a lot of buildings and a lot of decorations, so if you just want to plunk down buildings and make a pretty city, go for it.
  • Pros: Lots of structures and decorations to build your city with, Charming visuals and sound effects
  • Cons: Game is way, way too easy, Complete disconnection between social energies and Sim happiness, Sluggish graphics engine

  • 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.

O toto mìsto se budete starat, postupnì budete stavìt nové a nové budovy a v prùbìhu této práce se vám otevøou další a další možnosti. Dùležitým aspektem je také spokojenost obyvatelstva.

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Számtalan térképet választhatunk majdani városunk felépítésére, akár random is generáltathatunk, ha kedvünk tartja. Aztán, hogy a csupasz tereppel mihez kezdünk, azt a játék teljes egészében a fantáziánkra bízza. Ha nem várunk semmi eget rengető játékélményt, ha agytompító kikapcsolódásra vágyunk épp délután hazaérve, és már réges-rég unjuk a Sims-t, akkor jó választás a Societies. Ha azonban komolyabb kihívást keresünk, akkor azt ne itt!
  • Pros: Milliónyió épület és dekorációRemek hangok és effektek
  • Cons: Túlságosan könnyűLogikátlan játékmenet

Sim City Societies - Test

Gamefox
16 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Wenn man 'SimCity'-Maßstäbe anlegt, dann ist 'SimCity Societies' eine ziemliche Enttäuschung. Wer die Faszination, die Abwägungen, das behutsam durchdachte Stadtaufpäppeln der bisherigen 'SimCitys' sucht, der wird bei 'SimCity Societies' nicht fündig. Betrachtet man 'SimCity Societies' jedoch einfach als Spiel für sich, so ist es kein überragendes, aber ein grundsolides, unterhaltsames Aufbauspiel.
  • Pros: leichter Einstieg, putzige Grafik, vielseitige Aufbaumöglichkeiten
  • Cons: wenig wirklicher Tiefgang, hohe Hardware-Anforderungen
