SimCity 4 is the first installment in Will Wright’s popular city simulation saga that uses a 3D engine, while still offering the same addictive fun from previous titles to all SimCity fans.

The main feature SimCity 4 focuses on is realism: you can now zoom in certain areas and neighborhoods in your city and see buildings in detail. What’s more, what you choose to build in a specific area of your city will have a direct impact on the development of that given area.

SimCity 4 includes more user interaction in the process of construction and maintenance of all sorts of buildings. Last but not least, changes in weather will also affect the population’s behavior, resulting in more challenging games for you.

SimCity 4 includes all the best elements of strategy and simulation games and mixes them together in one of the most popular city simulation sagas.
