SimCity 2000 puts an entire city in the palm of your hand. SimCity 2000 lets you create, build, and run a city of your own. Take on the role as a mayor and call the shots for the entire city. You'll have to keep up on the housing, industries, mass transportation, and commerce to attract potential citizens. And just when you think you have it under control, a natural disaster or alien invasion may occur to set you back. However, if you can conquer all of these problems, you just might be able to turn a small town into a thriving metropolis.
SimCity 2000 is the successor to the city simulation game Sim City. You are once again the mayor, but this time you can fully customize the terrain before building your city. The graphics are isometric, whereas the original had graphics displayed in a top-down fashion.
This title adds numerous features over the original such as the ability of building "light" zones, subways, hospitals, colleges, zoos, and arcos which are actually cities in cities. You can now give names to places, and your city is surrounded by neighboring towns with which you can make trade. Finally, instead of the poll in the first game you now have the option of reading several newspapers to get an idea of your progress.
