Should You Invest in SimCity for Wii?

Posted on 29th November 2008 by admin in Game Reviews

SimCity Creator is not a new game; merely new to Wii. It was released way back in 1989 in a PC version. It is said that SimCity was the pioneer in the city building game genre. Considered to be an addictive yet simple system to manage, it allowed players to develop a town of modest means into a thriving metropolis. With a few changes along the way and a reworking for the old Super Nintendo Entertainment System, fifteen years have passed and Nintendo’s Wii game console system is happy to add SimCity to their library of games.

Everyone seems to agree that SimCity has held up well over the years. The only complaint being that the audio and graphics of the game have a tendency to look outdated to the new generation of users.

The concept of the game is pretty simple. You pick out where in the world you want your town to be created. A piece of land and a dream is where you begin. There are residential, industrial and commercial zones and you choose where you want them to be placed within your city. By adding stadiums, seaports, coal or nuclear power plants as well as law enforcement and safety services you make the town a place anyone would be happy to call home.

You can’t forget about transportation. Roads need to be built as well as adding a system of mass transit so that citizens will be able to traverse the city. The ultimate goal of SimCity is not just in the building, but in keeping the citizens that have made your city their home happy. This seems to be the true appeal of the game. Citizens are only too happy to lodge their complaints as to crime, pollution and unemployment to name just a few.

Aside from a few glitches such as manually moving icons between different fields of play and the menu for navigation, SimCity for the Wii game console system is still the ideal game in which you are the master of your city.
