Maxis calls this game "The Ultimate City Simulator," and I have to agree. This is by far the best city simulation game, and one of the best simulation games that I have ever had a chance to play. This game deals with three major building issues, Zoning, public works, and water. There are 2 power issues, power plants and power lines. While the game doesn't look very realistic, there are cars moving around, there are scores of different buildings, and there are several disasters that can take place ranging from tornadoes to nuclear melt downs. I wish it was cheaper, but I'd say that it is worth the price for such a great game. It will run on any system 486 or better, but it really picks up with a pentium. You also will need a fair amount of RAM to really get the game going. Overall, this is a great game that deals with city building, city management, politics, and dealing with disaster.
