Sim City DS review

Why not pave a paradise, then forget to put up a parking lot?

Pros

  • Excellent use of touch screen
  • Charming and simple gameplay
  • Destroying your own city

Cons

  • Music is awful
  • Zoomed-out view
  • When the AI destroys your city

Is there a creature on Earth more misunderstood than the humble town planner? They work hard all day, toiling for hours in the fields, trying to find that idyllic spot out in the sticks to place their town%26rsquo;s fire station, and then they sit up all night stylus-tapping missiles into the face of hospital-munching giant apes. And for what?

After a few hours designing your dream town in Sim City, however, you%26rsquo;ll want to send your own town%26rsquo;s council a bouquet of flowers and abox of Sees candies. Because appeasing the whining inhabitants of your haphazardly designed city is next to impossible. But then, it%26rsquo;s not really about them, is it?
