While it’s essentially the same as it ever was, the added bells and whistles make this the best SimCity game on the DS.

Challenge Mode adds longevity
Streamlined menus and tutorial
Time travelling adds variety
Still hugely addictive
Basically the same game as before

I bought SimCity DS when it was released, and I loved it! Sure, it was a bit difficult to lay roads down with the stylus, but I still had a blast. It’s a portable city in your pocket – you got to love it. However, only having one save sucks big time. Either way, I think I’ll be picking up this game come closer to Christmas.
