SimCity is ambitious — probably one of the biggest titles on the App Store thus far. Fans of the long-running series will certainly enjoy themselves in this port, but there is too little direction for newcomers and too many crashes to overlook. That game needs to be stabilized. An update for that with some scenarios would be heartily welcomed. But even without any sort of helping hand, SimCity is still a good value for your download dollars, as there are literally dozens of hours of game in here for diehards.

I was so hoping to get an iPhone for Christmas, but came up emptyhanded.  Oh well…guess I’ll end up having to purchase one myself.  Problem is, I don’t know if I should get one now or wait until Jan. 6th for MacWorld!  Arrrgghhh..

In the meantime, head to IGN to read their review for SimCity iPhone.  They rate the game a score of 7.8.
