The next big city simulation title is nearly upon us, and with it a range of new and improved gameplay mechanics that many gamers fond of the SimCity franchise will be eagerly awaiting. From various tweaks to a brand new construction engine titled GlassBox, the newest SimCity (not to be confused with the original) is set to offer a whole new take on the open-ended city- building series.
While it may seem like we had all the time in the world to really understand how SimCity works and what it will offer to the players, these types of games really shine in the long run. What is on offer to begin with though is nothing short of fantastic and really shows the potential that it has.
Reviewing SimCity is a rough gig. Not because there’s anything wrong with the game, far from it. Rather SimCity is a beast of a game that won’t reach its full potential until it’s been out in the wild for a little while post-release. The mechanisms in place to dynamically default you into cooperatively living with other players is a gem of a direction for the franchise, and half the time you don’t even realise you’re doing it.
