Underrated and therapeutic

  • Summary: I am aware of the negative press accorded this game (good ideas let down by poor or convoluted logic driving it). Having played it for an hour, I realized something -- the background music and the freedom to create and adjust a custom built city was fun, relaxing, and therapeutic. I also enjoyed clicking on individual sims and how they responded to their immediate environment.

Exciting New Game

Ryan, Amazon

  • Summary: I found this game to be very entertaing. I had a lot of fun placing my own buildings instead of having them randomly appear. Many people compare this game to SC4 saying it's not the same. You can't compare the two because they have different types of gameplay. Sim City Socieities was made by a different developer. It's not called Sim City 5 afterall, so why should it be like the others? I think its an interesting new way to play and will enjoy it for a long time.

A highly innovative title that merits a look

T. O., Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: It is unfortunate to see that this page of reviews is plagued with people merely complaining, "OMG, this isn't SimCity... I've been a fan for years and I am SOOOO disappointed." What these overly critical reviewers do not realize is that this is not supposed to be the next big SimCity game (as they say, SimCity 5).

Not bad...

Jonnie, Amazon
4 January 2008
  • Summary: I enjoyed playing SC Societies much more than SC 4. I found dealing with zoning and budgets to be tedious and boring. I disliked the fact that I had no real say regarding the demographics of my cities. Societies is for players, like myself, who are more interested in the sociopolitical dynamics and personality of the city rather than the economics. I don't think one game is better than the other..

Different but still fun

Eric B. Allen, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been a simcity fan when they first came out. I think that this was their remedy to not being able to produce Simville which was supposed to be a combo for Simcity and The Sims fans. Yes, when I bought it there were bugs, which the patch has since remedied and so far so good. I think being a die hard Simcity fan you are going to be disappointed because it is unlike any SimCity you've ever played. It's not about the infrastructure; it's about the people.

Puedes darle rienda suelta a tu imaginación e inventar una ciudad a tu gusto, orientando los pisos como desees, jugando con la forma de la ciudad, con el tamaño de los edificios. Tu misión a parte de ir levantando la ciudad desde el principio, mantenerla moldeando la cultura, tendencias sociales, etc.

  • Excerpt: Ho letto le altre opinioni su Ciao.it di questo gioco e mi sento in dovere di controbattere. Per anni ho provato a giocare con gli altri capitoli della serie sim city, senza mai riuscirci. Mi risultavano sempre troppo complicati; sebbene amo i gestionali non riuscivo mai a districarmi tra i comandi e i controlli a disposizione. Tempo fa, vista un'antemprima di questo gioco, ho deciso di procurarmelo per provarne eventuali miglioramenti.. che dire.. ...
  • Pros: semplice da giocare, divertente
  • Cons: grafica elevata

SimCity Societies, diferente a los anteriores

  • Excerpt: Hola comunidad, hoy os hablare de otro de las sagas clásicas de juegos que conozco desde que conozco la informática, y al que he jugado muchas horas a lo largo de muchos años. Allá por el año 93, con mi primer ordenador propio, un portátil algo así como un 8088, a 8Hz, si hercios y no megahecios, sin disco duro y con disquetera de 3,5" de baja densidad, si 720Kb por disquete yo ya jugaba al Simcity, si no recuerdo mal era la versión SinCity 2000.
  • Pros: Los graficos han mejorado mucho
  • Cons: No poder construir por zonas

  • Excerpt: Hola aca les dejo mi opinion del juego: SimCity Societies se trata de un buen título de gestión de centros urbanos que sin duda gustará a los menos aficionados al género por su sencillez y simplicidad en el desarrollo. Sin embargo, precisamente por esto mismo supondrá un desafío menor para los veteranos en el género que sin duda disfrutarán más de los títulos clásicos de la saga, aún habiéndose incluido una serie de trofeos y medallas que se desbloquearán al cumplir...
  • Pros: buenos graficos
