A classic! Cheap too!
Aah, this is a masterful game! A clasic, like I said! Onward!
Grahpics and Sound: 9
Okay, so they're sprites! Darn good ones I'll add! Anyways, this is a Sim game, you aren't expecting masterful 3-d landscapes. If you want that buy Sim City 3000! The land changes it's appearence to match the season. Now to sound. The sound effects aren't anything to big, but the music is excellent. The little towns have nice peaceful music where as the Metropolis has blaring loud music.
You build a city, big whoop. Actually, by adding various city classes, presents, and incorporating Mario in, and you have a tasty story by-product! Eat up!
It's always fun to build a city. Taking on the Scenarios is another story. I hate trying to work around nuclear waste. You get the roads, railroads, powerlines and plants, police and fire stations, airports, stadiums, seaports, and the standard residence, comercial, and industrial zones. Oh, and the parks, and present for the kiddies. Remember the general rules though. Crime is high in industrial areas. Don't worry though. Nintendo incorporated Mr. Wright to help you out with little things, like when Bowser decides to take a shortcut through your city. Speaking of which, you can also summon fires, floods, tornados, earthquakes, plane crashes, and the playful romping of Bowser.
You can get this for less than 10 bucks at funcoland, or you can find it in a bargain bin, new. Either way, if you see this game, buy it... unless you have it.
Rating: 4.5 - Outstanding
