5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Game, Others are Wrong, August 31, 2004
By 
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition - PC (Video Game)
For anyone who gives this game below 4 stars, they obviously aren't seeing the true point to this game. Here are just a few responses to some of the bad ratings:

-CD's rarely explode in the drive. This happens once every few million or so CDs when there is a slight imperfection (not your fault) and the high speeds and warm temperatures in the drive cause the CD to warp more than it is and eventually explode. This can take some time as the warp may take some time to grow.

-The graphics are amazing for this type of game. If it kills your specs, get a new comp, not my problem.

-The point of the game is not to have perfect AI going exactly where they're supposed to, but going in general areas of traffic where there would normally be the MOST commotion (dense areas) and tell you to expand those roads. This is incredibly realistic, because people don't just go across the street to work, they have to go to school, shop, and rarely is their job across the street.

-If you're experienced and take the tutorials, the game can be challenging, fun, and easy at the same time. This is what I look for in a game.

-If you can't afford 1.2 Gigs to install this baby, you don't deserve it. Get a new comp man, its that simple. It's not 1993 anymore.

Graphics: 5/5

Gameplay: 5/5

Interactability: 5/5

Sound: 5/5

Originality: 5/5

I like a game with a lot to think about and work up to, and this game has hights that I can't even see for months to keep me busy. It also seems that there are more city areas to expand to after timbuktu. The U-Drive-It mode is uniquely original and offers somewhat of a cab driving and even a slight tint of GTA to the game, giving you something to relax on when you're losing focus from the city itself. My favorite expansion is the increase in transportation means. I didn't play much of 3000, but this definately blew 2000's out of the water. The music was well themed and well written, unlike many MIDI powered music sources this one seemed recorded and I liked the scores to the music as well. If this review hasn't convinced you to buy it, then don't.
