SimCity 4

SimCity 4 has been shipping for awhile for the Mac, but is now available at local stores. I think I'd like to pick up a copy, but I've got four jobs right now, and I think I should really concentrate on those instead. What to do, what to do… I still haven't even opened the last Zelda game, and I've only been slowly trying to finish (complete every task) in the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003 game before the 2004 version comes out. Mario Kart will get some play when it comes out, but another computer game? Sadly, I think I'll have to pass for now. 🙁

  1. You should really play Zelda, it's amazing. I've been playing it for about 20 hours so far and it's still strongly holding my interest...

  2. Like I said, no time. 😛

  3. Simcity 4 isn't all that hot compared to it's ancestors. Too sluggish and too much fine tuning available. Simcity 3000 was as good as it got IMHO.

  4. I got Zelda the day it came out, and I really am amazed by it. However I was working full-time and going to school full-time, so I completely sympathize with the no time thing. I am half way thru the game and I'm trying to tell myself its summer I can play games and not feel guilty.

    The biggest suck about it is that I still buy the stupid games I know I will never play enough. I just picked up the Warcraft III expansion, Unreal Tournament 2003, and I'll be getting Neverwinter Nights once the mac version ships (well at least I can throw my money at people making/porting games to Mac OS X)

  5. I bought the GameCube almost especially for Zelda and loved it. Have yet to play it's master quest as I'd like to give some time to Metroid which came free with the system. On my Mac I'm still finishing Warcraft III (original) and hope to pick up it's expansion pack soon.

    So many games so little time...

  6. Just been playing SimCity for a few days, made me stay up until 3am or so repeatedly.

    In short, I'd say:

    Very nice graphics, nice detail. Becomes VERY sluggish*

    Why I play it: I can play 3hrs or 5 mins, whatever. and I can do hard core major or smoke my little something, no matter really. I cheat in more money when income is not right, and off I am again.

    Too much detail? yeah guess its true. Well not if you think of a simulation of a city, but sometimes you can adjust a little to much things.

    I found the "I want my CD" annoying, so I made a disk copy image of *exact* same size. Et voilà !

    Now I miss a G5 Panther version of it running on my triple screens. For next year, ya know.

    *) iTFT 800, 512MB, 80yrs old City w. 12K citizens, ~70% of area zoned, occupied but not extremely crowded. The Mac is going on its four legs, heh, needs a little patience, but I tell ya its suitable, I can't standslugginess, this one is on thelimit. But: Thats on a Geforge2 🙂
