This review is from: City Life World Edition - PC (Video Game)
As a long-time player of SimCity, I was attracted to City Life World Edition because of both its similarities to SimCity and its differences.

At first, City Life World Edition appears to be a bit simplistic, but it is far from that. Building a city of millions of people in a wide variety of terrains and climates, while not spending all of your funds on the necessary infrastructure, is very challenging and very rewarding. The game offers a sandbox mode, but the scenarios provide a "gold key" upon winning, and the gold key opens up new maps.

The beautiful graphical interface allows the player to walk around the city at a zoom level that provides amazing detail. Watch your inhabitants as they go about their day, and view first-hand the effect your city design has on them.

There is now a Vista patch for this game, and it runs smoothly under Vista Home Premium on my computer. Running it on Windows XP SP2 is also trouble-free, in my experience. No game will ever run perfectly for everyone, though, but I have had no problems with it.

The Building Customization Editor (which enables the user to create his/her own buildings and import them into the game) is convoluted and basically without documentation. The Map Editor is also difficult to use. But given the fact that the building and map editors are not part of the core game, I have given this game a 5-star rating for its beautiful graphics, unique features, and endless possibilities for either easy or challenging play.
