SimCity 2000

SimCity 2000 (Maxis) is the updated version of that venerable classic, SimCity the granddaddy of all simulation games.

Editor's Rating: 4.8/5

Although this newer version has been around for awhile, its still one of the most entertaining simulation programs you can buy. Start out with little more than cow pastures, and in no time you can be ruling a megalopolis if you know how to manage a city, that is. The issues you must consider and control are numerous zoning, development, mass transit, education, recreation, utilities, and on and on. Your potential problems are even more numerous illiteracy, urban blight, riots, declining land values, gridlock, and an aging infrastructure, to name just a few. We’ve always been fans of this game, mostly because it strikes a perfect balance between giving you control over the minute details a good simulation requires and keeping things simple enough to be fun. The initial learning curve is a bit steep we’d like to see a tutorial like the one included with Gazillionaire, but we must admit that in traditional Maxis style the manual is at least an entertaining read. SimCity 2000 will hold your interest longer than just about any other CD-ROM game, mainly because the simulation is so challenging. But if you can stay on top of things, keep crime and pollution low and maybe float some successful bond issues, you’ll be rewarded with throngs of your little Sim-citizens erecting a statue in your honor. What more could anyone ask for?

    To build a power plant just click and hold the electricity icon (power lines) and a menu should show up, while still holding your left-click, move down and highlight “Power Plants” and you will be provided with a menu of available power plants to build.
