SIMCITY 2000 was the 2nd game release in the Sim series of games. My roommate had a version of the game when we were in college that he played endlessly. For students raised on the unbelievable graphics and intricate gameplay of video games that are now available, SIMCITY 2000 will probably seem boring. However, the game can be quite fun to play and can even be educational (due to the problem solving nature of certain aspects of the game).
In the game, you can either choose to build and run a city from scratch or choose one of the preplanned cities based upon cities in the real world, called scenarios, and choose to run one of those. There really is no end to the game because you can keep building or destroying the cities as long as you want to. However, if you build enough Launch Arcologies and enough time has passed, an "exodus" will begin to occur and the Launch Arcologies will actually launch into outerspace, taking all their citizens with them, but leaving behind lots of money in the treasury. Well, at least that's what I'm told, I built my city from scratch starting in 1900 and had about 300 Launch Arcologies by the year 5000 and I still didn't see one launch.
Overall, SIMCITY 2000 might seem tame by many gamers raised on Xbox 360s and Playstation 3s. However, if you enjoy have patience; enjoy trying to creating a world from scratch, but don't want to deal with too many minute details; and don't mind an old-school type video game, you might enjoy creating a city and trying to make it succeed in SIMCITY 2000.
