1.0 out of 5 stars Do not purchase! December 30, 2005
By Just Me
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Except for SimGolf (which is good) and SimPark (which is below elementry school level and not for adults) none of the games work on any platform using a 32 bit video card - which is basically any platform higher than win 95 and win 98. The readme files for EVERY game actually state the games won't work on any higher platforms but I guess the sellers didn't read the readme files or they didn't care since they know you can't return opened software and they get the money so long as you make that inital purchase. Very unhappy customer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting Exactly What You Pay For And It's AWESOME May 18, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I read so many horrible reviews before I purchased this product, good thing I IGNORED THEM ALL. I used to play these games when they first came out, so I already knew about the old fashioned gaming quality they have. (The graphics are outdated compared to an Xbox game you can play today). But thats just it, these are CLASSIC computer games. Don't buy them expecting them to be super fancy, they are basic and a lot of fun.

And I don't know why people kept whining back in 2006, but I have had my Windows XP desktop for 5 years now and all the games work beautifully.

When buying these games consider the following:
1. If you can't find a serial number, look harder, its on the back of the instruction manual that comes with the bundle
2. Don't expect these to be games that came out this year! They came out years ago, old graphics. Appreciate them as what they are, FUN
3. Don't buy them expecting them to run on your computer that has an OS higher than XP, you're just setting yourself up for disappointment
4. These games are tons of fun if you give them a shot.

I bought this bundle used and all the games work, with no scratches to any of the discs.

If you miss these games and wanted to start playing them again like me, then this bundle is perfect for you! I am really enjoying them. I originally bought the bundle just for the SimCopter game, but I find myself playing all of them now. BUY THE GAMES!

1.0 out of 5 stars What the Heck??? January 23, 2006
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
These games are not compatible with Windows XP and I've noticed there's no way to send scathing e-mails to EA through their website, so I'm venting here. It looks like I'll be purchasing the "Tycoon" line of games and sending this trash back to EA, refund or not. Just having these discs in my house is making my computer sad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but also look around. January 8, 2012
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
An alright package, considering that some of the games inside would cost more than the whole thing! While I really love the old maxis "sim" series, this pack seems to have the lowest ones. They're all good, for sure, but if you HAD to have a certain number of sim games to choose from, the only one in this pack would be simcity 3000 (which, by the way, is an amazing game.) I would recommend purchasing it alone, however. Or, if you're hellbent on saving amounts of cash by buying a pack, look around. This IS simmania THREE, after all. You'll be surprised how many things maxis came out with in the 90's, and all Sim-something!

Also try: Sim Ant, Sim Farm, the other Sim Cities, and anything by Chris Sawer, as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for all who love Sim City! October 30, 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this for my 10 year old nephew who has been playing and totally loving Sim City 4. While he hasn't played all of them yet, he called me to let me know that he LOVES it! I would say this is for all ages who have or are currently playing the Sim City style software. I give this a double "thumbs up"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Deal! And Morons will be Morons September 2, 2006
This is an awesome set. Some people are just retardes and don't get the point of updating 2 Windows XP. This set is vicious, And if u have windows XP trust me, THEY ALL WORK. I must admit that i had and still have problems running SIM Theme Park, but don't worry, SIM COASTER is a better version of sim Theme Park and it works fine. AND those who r so stupid, THE serial code for SIM Golf and SIM City 3000 is on the back of the INSTALATION GUIDE! It costs about 5.99-15.99 an induvidual game so 6 games for $17 bucks! Amazing Deal. Great buy. And complaining jerks are just stupid. Go For it!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed July 5, 2009
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Unless you want the old version of simcity 3000 do not buy this, the other games are not very good, and the qaulity is poor, as some of the games will not run on newer systems, don't buy it unless it's about 90 cents.
