- Scenario challenges include the 1991 Oakland fire, unemployment in Flint, Michigan, and Hurricane Hugo hits Charleston
- A multi-level interface makes SimCity 2000 easy to control-but with added depth just below the surface, waiting till you’re ready for it
- Schools, hospitals, universities, libraries, museums, parks, zoos, stadiums, marinas, prisons, and more are yours to build
- Imports saved cities from SimCity and SimCity Classic.
While any particular SimCity will probably be a fun little game, it was this version that really captures the charm of the series. For the first time, you had neighboring cities you could trade with, entertaining and informative newspapers you could read, the ability to build zones of different densities, all of which really added to the experience without introducing new problems. There were also subways to take the pressure off of surface transportation, new types of buildings to enrich the populace. If that’s not enough, there was the Urban Renewal Kit add-on that allowed you to create your own content and refine the original templates.
