The expansion pack to SimCity 5 that pushes the limits.

The SimCity series has been going on for quite a while now, and just when the public thought that SimCity 4 was the last one ever made and that Maxis has given up on the franchise, they release SimCity 5. They simply call it “SimCity” and it is a reboot of the game, which is why it is so different from SimCity 4 that was released ten years prior. SimCity 5 came out in 2013, and the expansion pack came out late in 2013.

The Big Money Grab

Just like with the Sims games, Maxis has yet again created a game holding some of the content back so that they may sell the expansion pack. Cities of Tomorrow is set 50 years in the future where new regions, specialisations and technology are available to you. The game itself (SimCity 5) is different from the older games, but you will still be able to pick it up and play right away if you have played other Sims games.

Play Within Three Categories

The categories you can choose from are MegaTowers, OmegaCo and Academy, and they each affect how the game is played and what types of buildings you are able to use and gain. You will also notice how the game has a futuristic edge. If you already have a city in place on a map, it is possible to have it upgraded. Futuristic buildings seem to make the surrounding areas futuristic too. For example, you will notice that the nearby cars start to become futuristic and that the traffic lights have changed.

Will I Like This Game?

It is actually better suited to people that have played SimCity 5 a lot and that are already very good at building cities. It is not really a game for the novice player, especially since new players will not appreciate the changes and their effect on the cities.

This is not like playing the original Sims games where if you installed all the expansions at once you would have a game with hundreds of features. Install this expansion the first time you ever play the game and you are almost cheating yourself out of playing SimCity 5. It is for the type of player that has played the game a lot and now wants a perfect city.

Pros

  • A nice and effective expansion
  • Allows you to make perfect cities
  • Add a crown to your tower
  • Removes the need for a university
  • Add a futuristic dynamic to your game

Cons

  • A bit of a cash grab
