SimCity 3000 review

Computer Gaming World (1999): "However, SIMCITY 3000 is a wonderful toy, an open-ended game in which you make the rules. The significant progression of gameplay from SIMCITY 2000 is appreciated only after extensive time with the game; SIMCITY 2000 veterans will have to decide whether the changes are worth the asking price. But by staying true to its roots, the latest version ensures an addictive experience. Starting up your own Mayberry and turning it into a major megalopolis provides a satisfaction unusual in computer gaming. And doesn’t require full body armor and a BFG."

Retro gamer collector's corner:

In 2000, the game was re-released under different names in different regions, such as SimCity 3000 Unlimited (in North America and Oceania), SimCity 3000 Deutschland (Germany), SimCity 3000 UK Edition (UK & Ireland) and SimCity 3000 World Edition (other countries), among others. This added, among other things, East Asian and European building sets, additional terrain colors and vegetation types, a snapshot feature, an improved version of the Building Architect Tool, four additional disasters, additional landmarks, new reward buildings, thirteen scenarios and a new FMV intro.
