Game Summary

Create the city you desire and make the choices that shape your city and power the Sims within it. Every decision, big or small, has real consequences. Invest in heavy industry and your economy will soar - but at the expense of your Sims' health as pollution spreads.

Compete on global and regional leaderboards to be the richest, the dirtiest, the happiest or the best place to visit!

SimCity Review

It's been exactly one week since SimCity saw its release marred by a series of unfortunate server-related issues.The game's always-on DRM requirement prevented many from enjoying the latest city-building simulator, making for a frustrating week.

SimCity Cheats

Placing a water pump (using filtration pumps) directly next to a sewage treatment plant allows for infinite water. The sewage treatment plant adds back in to the ground water table at that spot. The filtration pumps ensure your water won't get polluted from the ground pollution that will occur. Using this trick, you can pick 1 of the 4 clustered cities in your tradeable region to use this trick over and over. This will provide a massie amount of water that can be purchased.
