The classic city building simulation is back, with a deeper simulation than ever and a fascinating new multiplayer mode.
About 23 years ago, Will Wright and his team at Maxis software changed the course and meaning of video game design forever. They did it with Sim City, a brilliant urban sandbox simulator, which allowed players to construct their own functioning cityscapes, complete with economic, social and infrastructural challenges – and the odd natural disaster. The series has now seen four major instalments and sold many millions of copies. And now it is back, refreshed from the foundations up and ready to engross us once again.
