Fun and entertaining for hours at a time!

SimCity DS brings out all of the fun of the original computer game in a portable Nintendo DS format! While SimCiy DS is not a prefect game it is highly addictive and fun.


- To completely build your city you will have to spend hours and hours playing.
- The game is pretty intuitive and easy to play from the begining
- The "Simulation" of the game is interesting from a master planning and economics stand-point. By raising taxes you will drive some of your residents out.


- You must use the stylus for determining what and where you are going to build. At times it can be difficult controlling the stylus precisely enough to build in exactly the right spots. This becomes especially true while building roads.
- The game does get a bit repetitive at times - and it does seem silly that you need 8 hospitals for a town of 50,000 people.
- You can only save one city at a time. This turns the game into a one person at a time game... and since it may take a month to build a complete city this becomes an annoyance if someone else wants to play!

FInal Verdict - SimCity is a fun way to pass a plane, car, or train ride - I fully recommend the game without any hesitation despite some minor flaws.

A nice original concept that at this basic stage was great. Later games would get real in depth and bog the games down a bit.
