The highly complex, urban development soft is coming to 16-Bit courtesy of HAL Laboratory. The interface has been altered from the original PC version. No need to worry, though! The basic elements of the award-winning sim have not been altered. Imagineer also promises the addition of new features that are exclusive to the SFC version!

Ill-advised console conversion of the complex PC urban development sim. japanese text doesn't help unless you've played the original.

A clone of the top-selling PC game, Sim City 2000 won't dominate the marketplace this season, but it's a decent addition to any SNES library.

SC2000 offers you more than the original Sim City for the SNES. As before, you control everything in your city, from building the housing and parks to figuring out how to placate the often-angry citizens—but since you start at the year 2000, you also deal with futuristic issues, like trying to launch your populace into space.

The presentation is uneven. The graphics look okay and the sound effects are fun, but the music is repetitive. The control interface is awkward, especially if you're used to the mouse or keyboard from the computer version. Despite the flaws, if you love sims, you'll be happy to see this game. It's real Sim Fun.

ProTips:

  • Floods cause damage only at sea level. Use the Raise Terrain button to build protective dikes around low-lying areas to take less flood damage.
  • Power plants are crucial. Unless you're in the No Disaster mode, they'll eventually wear out and shut down. Keep track of their life span so you can rebuild as necessary.
