What magazines wrote about it

"As a stand-alone title, the first SimCity is an impressive execution of a very smart concept. Yes, there's room for obvious improvement, the limited interface holds you back, and much like with Theme Park you're building to maximize the efficiency of a model, not free-building the town as you please. Still, it's a fun challenge, and a great milestone to the genre." - Just Games Retro review

"It's difficult to explain why Sim City in so appealing. Perhaps it's because uoy're given the chance to "prove" you've got what it takes to run peoples' lives in a efficient manner. Perhaps it's just megalomania. (Yup Ed.) Whatever the reasons, Sim City will stay in your disk drive for a very, very long time." - Zero Magazine (1990)

"Another game to have spawned a thousand clones, Maxis' mix of town planning, crisis management and downright megalomania has achieved the impossible - to make urban politics fun! Build up your town from a green field site, populate it with people, give them a transport network and services, and then try to maintain law and order as they take on a life of their own. Defintiely not to be missed." - PC Review Issue 7 (1992)
