All that aside, though, not much else has changed. The game still has the same general look (with a few new effects – more on that in a moment), the same sound and plays the same. Destinations does add a new layer of challenges and makes city planning a bit more involved, but in all honesty, because you could create a viable town with the free downloads and the tools in place, catering to tourists is not a must-have addition.
Of course, the game does have some fun stuff. There are new disasters that can be unleashed in your town and some of the effects that go along with the tourist attractions are a decent bit of eye candy.
GameZone gives SimCity Societies Destinations an overall 7.8 score. Not bad for an expansion of a game that did fairly poor when it was released.
