Product Description

The ultimate city simulator. You design, build, and customize any city you can imagine, and Sim City 2000 SE will bring it and its resident Sims to life. Includes the Urban Renewal Kit and Scenarios Vol. 1--all on one CD-ROM.

Review

This is the most popular sim of all time, cranked up to a high-tech gloss and packaged with all the popular expansion sets. The original SimCity gave players the opportunity to create and oversee the growth of a living city as well as all its problems: crime, pollution, zoning demands, power outages, traffic foul-ups, and the occasional tornado, nuclear meltdown, or wandering monster from the sea. Less a game in the usual sense of the word than a sort of electronic ant farm, SimCity let players see how they fared as mayor, architect and town council. Now SimCity 2000 adds adjustable topography to the fun, using a terrain editor which can create mountains, valleys, ravines, etc. (The new types of terrain also permit the construction of hydroelectric dams and water towers.) Necessitated by this new addition is a new viewing engine, which rotates the player's municipality in 90 degree increments, so that new mountaintop university doesn't block your view of the burgeoning slum down below. As the town progresses through the decades, the sheer size and technological sophistication of your creations become more and more outlandish, and the resultant metropolis ends up looking like something out of Blade Runner. It can take quite a while to become familiar with Maxis' Sim series, and even longer to actually succeed at long-term city goals. Once you get beyond the learning curve, however, the cycle of planning, construction and urban renewal leads to a rewarding creation. And, as always, hard-won cities from earlier versions of the game can be imported for alteration and experimentation. --Chris Hudak/SpotMedia Communications

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a great game August 22, 2001
Format:CD-ROM
SimCity 2000 has been around for awhile, but don't let that hold you back from buying it, especially at this price. Although not as graphically beautiful as SimCity 3000, it is considerably more playable and almost as detailed. In addition to the ability to design and build your own city, something that can be endlessly fascinating, there are several interesting scenarios good for an hour or two of play. Also, this game is well worth your consideration if you have an older computer. It runs beautifully on everything from a 486-66 up.
If you haven't played SimCity 2000 yet, you owe it to yourself to check out the game I firmly believe was Maxis' finest creation.

5.0 out of 5 stars "SimCity 2000" is the ultimate! July 11, 2001
By Brad
Format:CD-ROM
When I first got this game, I installed it, put my colors up to 256, and started playing. Since I was used to the original "SimCity", I thought the zoning feature was very weird. It took a while for me to realize that you need to put powerlines THROUGH the zone. Well, after I mastered that, I then found out there is a water system. Oh boy! That took about an hour to master that, then I went on to master the bevy of other add-on's. My suggestion is this: when you first get this game, make a city that's just for experiments. Put the year in 2050, and build everything you can. That way you get the idea of what each thing is. Anyways, for those people that want to know how good the game is: graphics are great! They probably aren't as good as "SimCity 3000", but my computer can't handle that (stupid Pentium 1). After you make a huge metropolis, though, there starts to be HUGE buildings, and you can't see through those unless you set the veiwing to a different setting. Learning curve is about like a small cliff; you start off learning and experimenting. The game is difficult at the beginning. However, after you get past the beginning, it's pretty moderate after that. Plane crashes are very annoying. If you have a tall building by your airport, the plane will ram right into it. That's when the option of "no desasters" comes in handy. Sound is really cool because you get to hear your city working! Well, this is a great game! Oh yeah, this edition also comes with a program where you can make your own tile set and city for free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to play and TOTALLY addictive November 11, 2001
By Kali
Format:CD-ROM
SIM City 2000 is one of the easiest games on PC to play and it is great fun too. Build a city from scratch and watch it grow. With a loan from the bank you can start your own electronic world and you're in charge BIG-TIME. As your city gets bigger so do the needs of your blossoming population and let me tell you they aren't always to please. They want schools, hospitals, police and fire departments, libraries and museums and they are also greedy for entertainment such as stadiums, parks and zoos. To get the money in you have to make the city pay for itself, so taxes are the order of the day, and cutting costs just part of day-to-day living in a SIM world. You get totally wrapped up in your city, especially as it evolves with time and eventually looks like something out of Star-Trek. The instructions are easy to follow, and the graphics are chunky and colorful. The sound effects are pretty neat too, and you get a choice of disasters to inflict on your city if you are feeling especially nasty. A great game and at a great affordable price too.

5.0 out of 5 stars SimCity 2000 September 1, 2001
By Knewace
Format:CD-ROM
Simcity 2000 is a simulation game. You play the major of simcity, You have to construct it very well and attract a lot of people and the game never ends. It is very easy to learn and a lot of fun to play. The controls are great and very easy to use. You start the game by first taking a lone from the bank and then start constructing your city by putting roads then placing Power plants and connect them to powerlines that runs through the city for electric power, Water pumps, Water Towers and underground pipes for water supply, Residential zones, Commercial Zones, Industrial zones, Parks, Zoo and Stadium for entertainment, Schools, College, Hospitals, Police stations, Fire stations ect and then issue taxes to the people who come to your city. You can't place them anywhere you want, If you place a residential area near a powerplant no one will come, If you issue a lot of taxes then people will start to leave, The public will protest if you destroy forests, If you destroy lots of buildings A large mob lead by your mother will throw you out of town (play the game and find out what it means), You have to plan very carefully by not spending a lot of money too as there is a limit to how much you can borrow from the bank. Sc2k comes with a screnario editor for creating your own cities and it is very easy to do so. Sc2k is a 2D game but the graphics very bright and clear and the game runs very well. Simcity 2000 is one of the best computer games of all time, It is a must for all simulation / strategy fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars SimCity2000: Still the best July 18, 2002
Format:CD-ROM
This was the first game I ever played on a computer (way back in 1994) and am I still playing it. It's that good.
The concept is simple; build a city from the ground up and face all the challenges a real mayor running a city would. It's that simple concept that makes SC2k horribly addictive, especially at first. After you've built your dream city, there's still so much to do...make a rural town, enviromentally sound city, a city built on top a mountain, and so on.
The scenarios are challenging and fun. Even for the best player they can take many tries to master. Everytime you play you learn something new about the game. I also think people fail to mention the wonderful newspaper. It is filled with silly articles that are a laugh (but get the problems of the city across). Read articles on your local cricket team, or new developments in those weird lookin' arcologies.
The included Urban Renewal kit is a blast, and the free-city building is especially fun if you have SimCopter or Streets of SimCity because you can design the wackiest or coolest cities to fly or drive through.
A whole world is at your fingertips with SimCity 2000.
