Based on the phenomenally successful SimCity, you're given a plot of barren land to zone into industrial, residential, and commercial areas. As your city grows, you must deal with crime, education, and health issues by strategically placing police stations, schools, and hospitals. Manage traffic, the budget, and the needs of your constituents, or face riots, ridicule in the press, and eventual impeachment!
SimCity 2000 Special Edition CD includes the Urban Renewal Kit (SCURK) and Scenarios Vol. 1: Great Disasters, plus over 100 new buildings and an interview with Will Wright, creator of SimCity.
