[edit] Background

SimCity 4, like previous games in the series, gives you the chance create and control your own urban empire with zoning, infrastructure, police, budget, etc. Now, a true demographic aspect has been to the simulation in the form of Sims, citizens that look to you for assistance. Local effects play a greater role than ever, and you have more options when it comes to building and planning. Keep an eye out for those annoying disasters!

[edit] Features

  • Sculpt mountains, gouge valleys, and seed forests to lay the groundwork for your creation.
  • Drop a disaster anywhere in your city--set buildings ablaze, pelt your metropolis with meteors, unleash a twister, or wreak havoc with a volcano.
  • Populate your terrain with animals that graze and roam … and sometimes stampede into your city!
  • Create, build and run the most realistic city you can imagine.
  • Connect your metropolis with other cities you've created to form a massive region of SimCities, each sharing and competing for resources.
  • Deploy police cruisers and fire trucks to the scene--you're up close and part of the action as they deal with fires, striking mobs, crime, and more.
  • Place your Sims in your city--they'll give you valuable feedback.
  • Follow your Sims to work and home.
  • Experience life in the big city, from mellow traffic to commuter hell, noontime crowds to nighttime calm.

[edit] Hardware Requirements

  • Windows 98
  • Pentium III 500MHz
  • 128MB of Ram
  • 16MB video card
  • 8X CD-ROM Drive
  • 1GB free hard drive space
