If you want this game but you would also want to get a different game at the same time, get the other one first. This game is too complicated and gets boring after about 10 minutes. You spend an hour building a city just for them to A.)Complain, or B.)There would be nothing else to do after that. It was like the creators of the sims game through it out there for a quick buck, I don't blame them, but if they don't use that money to create a really good game soon, I probably won't ever play these games again. 4out of 10 BOOOOOOO!Jk JK to my JK Jk ???

I had Sim City for the computer and i loved putting tornados and other types of hazardous things for a city. On this edition of that game for the wii you can pretty much do everything you could on the computer. Like putting tornados and earthquakes on your city. You can even drop a monster on your city, which looks like god zilla. You can create your own city or use one of the premade ones. And it has WiFi so you can play online but it isnt exciting online anyway. This game is kind of fun when you get to know the controls which actually if you watch the first tutorial it makes it very straight forward and easy to understand. So if you dont have anything else that is really good rent this but this game shouldnt be on the top of your list.

I have played ever SimCity version since the game first came out over 10 years ago. This is by far the worst version. The graphics are sub par for SimCity. The boxy repetitive graphics in the first version were in many ways less disappointing. The controls are very poor. The interaction with the sim-A/I itself as woefully lacking.
If you have never played or seen any version of SimCity, this game might be acceptable. However, if you have tried your hand at SimCity this game is a waste of time and money. If you have never played the game before and try this one, please don't judge the whole SimCity collection based on this one poor excuse of a sim.
In truth, I wish the "SimCity" title was not even attach to this horrid mess of a game. Then I might find something redeeming in it.
