SimCity 2000 allows the user to build and manage a hustling and bustling metropolis.
You're given a plot of barren land to zone into industrial, residential, and commercial areas where people work, live, and play. Lay roads, subways, highways, and railroads to connect the zones and watch your city grow as citizens immigrate. As your city grows, you must deal with crime, education, and health issues by strategically placing police stations, schools, and hospitals. Add parks and stadiums, on-ramps and bus stops, airports and seaports as your citizens' needs grow. Manage traffic, the budget, and the needs of your constituents, or face riots, public ridicule in the presses, and eventual impeachment. (Hey, this sounds good!)
