I tried Simcity 4. I did not like this game because I found this hard to understand. Maybe I should get a SIm City 4 hint book guide. Other than that I should stick to The SIms 1 game and their add-ons.

Vendor is 5 star my ability on this game without cheats is zero :-)
I bought version 4 as you don't need internet and don't know why EA would limit it instead of optional internet on the latest release.

I've always loved playing simcity when I was younger. What I was surprised to find out about it now is it's actually challenging to play.

I for one am absolutely thrilled to actually get this game. I for one remember how much I enjoyed playing SimCity 2000 but after losing it to a computer crash and the CD-Rom by unfortunate circumstances, I decided to get "SimCity 4" and I have to say I am absolutely thrill yet disappointed at the same time.
By playing style, "SimCity 4" Follows the same patterns in a lot of ways like the SimCity 2000 games. You lay down zones; let it be industrial, commercial, and or residential. You also have to manage the city's fiscal status as well, by making sure your city doesn't fall into the pits of debt, passing ordinances that benefit the city...at a cost, and making it thrive by fighting crime through police stations and jails, fighting fires by building fire stations and dispatching fire engines, and educating your citizens with schools, colleges, and museums along with numerous other things.
On a positive note this game is a HUGE quantum leap forward from SimCity 2000 in almost every way. There are two main reasons for this. First, the actual details are stunning! Now buildings, and houses look like real structures and the street systems are much more realistic instead of looking like a hodgepodge of shapes like some of them did on SC 2000 from many years ago. The landscape looks so incredibly amazing too. Now it looks like a real actual landscape whether it be hilly, a peninsula, or plains, it's absolutely amazing! My favorite is elevated plains (I.E. Texas Panhandle) right next to large mountains (Going from Amarillo to around central New Mexico). Absolutely amazing!! The best part of this game too is not only the improvements on the graphics and landscapes but the background music.

Sim City 4
A Great, and the only, city simulation game for the computer. This latest installment boasts the best graphics and special effects in the series, as well as more detail in the area of micromanagement.
The Good:
Graphics, sound, music, dynamic visualizations, disasters
The Bad:
Awful terrain editing machine, railroads do not operate properly, streets and railroad tracks cannot bridge over each other or cross at odd angles on the city grid (although this problem should be corrected in Rush Hour), seaports and rail connections are a pain to get working properly, city areas are much smaller than in previous versions.
Overall a great game, but not much better than Sim City 3.

I'm a huge Sim City fan. This game starts out with a bang and looks beautiful. However, even on my 1-year-old desktop, the game virtually crawls to a halt after only 10 minutes of development. Scrolling takes at least 30 seconds, zooming in or out takes even longer -- unless it locks up entirely.
Does the game really need working traffic lights, packs of wild animals, construction workers, and all the other bells and whistles that make it look breathtaking, but ultimately unplayable? I think the developers have gotten carried away with the graphical capabilities.
PS -- I've installed the patch from the manufacturer's website that's intended to fix this problem. The improvement is noticable, but the game is still slow and unenjoyable. I've uninstalled it and re-installed SimCity 3000.

Sim City 4 (and its expansion pack Rush Hour) are very cool! Simply amazing. I was also a Sim City 3000 fanatic and I was expecting much about the new release. Well, it was better than I thought it would be. The graphics are astonishing and the entertaiment given by hours planning and developing your cities are incredible.
This game also offers a much higher challenge, one of the main problems in SC3000 was already solver, that was that it was relatively easy to build a city and develop. Nope, in SC4 you must have complete control over the budget.
I see some small problems, like the size of your cities (why we not have the option to size the cities in a region in a new region?), the high price of the game, some things could be added to the game and, mainly, the necessity of a super-computer to play the game (512mb RAM recommended if you are playing in a big city with more than 300 thousand inhabitants), but sure the game its worth all these problems.
Having patience and caution in planning your city, you won't regret the fact that you spent hours, days, weeks, even months to do a big and nice city.

By A Customer on July 15 2004
First off, this was a ... mleh game. This is a extremely complex game. The farthest i've gone without cheats is about 5 min. The traffic is absurd, subways are beyond expensive, trains and buses placed in the most congested areas only recieve 10% usage at most. The buildings look great and all the graphics are amazing, but the difficulty is beyond anything. SC3000 was a simpler and more addicting.SC4 is still addicting, but the frustration you will recieve trying to balance the budget is too much. BUT, if you pass all that, (i have managed that once), the difficulty gets even harder, powerplants either take up too much space or are too expensive, the budget gets extremly fragile, schools and hospitals overflow once built. But the rewards to see the cities bloom are great. My record pop. is 128,923. Is low for what i see, skyscrapes offices are not enough to get a mil. But still try the game you might get lucky.
