Bought it, Played it, Sold it... SimCity 3000 Rehash...
4 August 2013
Summary: I bought this game for my Wii a few years back after I regrettably wasted money on SimCity Societies. This game is good for the the young budding audience who want to get more in tune with City simulation games, like: SimCity 4 (Deluxe), SimCity 3000 and maybe Cities Xl 20xx etc... This game was fun but, soon after playing for a few hours I was bored and was more interested in the difficulties and challenges of SimCity 4 (Deluxe) which I had on my computer and still have...
Summary: For the brief moments that I have been able to play the game without issues it has been fun. But since there is no off line game (Huge mistake EA/Maxis) the game has been rarely available to play. You would figure if you pay $60 for a game you might get to play it. The new updates have affected the inner workings of the game play causing my successful city to crumble. I've had to restart my cities so many times because of these issues.
Summary: This is a great game and one that has extended play time built in through the nature of the game. The game is similar to the original style of SimCity rather than the current incarnations. I would say this game is a lot of fun and a great game.
Summary: Perhaps I should preface this review by saying I am a graduate student working on my Masters in Public Administration, so I am a government and public services nerd. I absolutely love this game and that it's the only educational video game I have ever enjoyed, dating back to childhood. The graphics are beautifully crafted, the challenges interesting, and the game has reached such a new level of play since I played the older versions as a kid.
