It's been a long time coming, but SimCity 3000 is finally here. The latest installment of this classic series offers a ton of new features, much-improved graphics, and the trademark addictive gameplay that made SimCity famous. With Prima's guide to the game in hand, you'll have a thriving metropolis on your desktop in no time. Beginning with a rundown of the series and the new elements in SimCity 3000, this book offers a wealth of information and guidance for any prospective SimMayor. The book covers topics such as connecting to neighbor cities and negotiating business deals with your fellow mayors, as well as more mundane items like where to dispose of your garbage (or to be more specific, where not to dispose of your garbage). Of course, the book also offers helpful advice for balancing your city's finances and provides a thorough description of the game's ordinances and their effects on your population. This is simply the ultimate guide to the ultimate city-building sim. --Michael Ryan

The few titbits of useful information which are provided, such as the land value calculation on p68, are poorly explained and make one wonder how much the author actually understands his subject.
Chapter 3 is pure padding - it just lists Maxis' own table of differences between SC2000 and SC3000. A useful-sounding appendix giving a list of power consumption values (p94) and "specific consumption figures" (p132) is alas missing from the book entirely. The number of fundamental errors which should have been caught by even trivial proofreading is _awful_: 3x3=16 (p57); 5x4500=4500 (p58).
Put these things together and you have a complete waste of money...
