About the Game

The defining city simulation is back! Build a living world where every choice matters. Be the Mayor and run the show. Ramp up your economy, hire police and firefighters, erect schools... or let crime and corruption run rampant. Improve infrastructure, battle power shortages, solve that pesky, never-ending traffic jam... or unleash a zombie horde to ravage everything. Whether you team up with friends to launch space shuttles or silently pollute your Sims into oblivion, it’s all up to you! It’s your city. Your way.


Key Features

Create and Customize
Your world will react to every decision you make. Lead your Sims, manage the economy, reform education, fight crime and watch the benefits and ramifications of your actions take shape in real-time.
Every Sim matters
You may be Mayor, but your Sims have a life of their own. Whether they’re happy, sad or steaming mad, you’ll be the first to know when they start protesting at your doorstep. It’s up to you to respond to their needs... or not.
Specialize in what you love
Build the city of your dreams, whether you’re the gambling type, a blue-collared manufacturer or an aspiring academic. As you specialize, your thriving metropolis will transform to fit your theme right before your eyes.
Revolutionary simulation technology
With the all-new GlassBox engine, every tiny element of your city—every Sim, every car, every building and every light—affects and is affected by how you play in real-time. The easy, model-like interface makes it simpler than ever to keep tabs on your Sims and manage your city—all while retaining the fine level of detail that defines SimCity.

While there were definite issues at launch regarding a required internet connection and server issues, those have been resolved. This leaves us with an addictive city simulator that, while not perfect, still provides many hours of fun.
