  • I have been playing this game for nearly two decades now. I love everything about it and have recently started using mods, specifically the NAM. Having switched to Mac, I was happy to see that this version allows the use of Mods, unlike the versions through origin. There are a few glitches, specifically with sound effects from what I have noticed, but otherwise this game plays exactly as I expected. I really enjoy it. Thank you for all of your hard work bringing this to Mac.
  • I've been playing this game off and on for probably close to 20 years. I just discovered Aspyr released an update for this to run on ARM Macs which totally blew my mind and was completely unexpected. Greatly appreciate their efforts to keep this game alive since no other city sim game comes close to the huge regions you can do with this version that I've seen. Also big shoutout to the mod community for keeping this alive all these years also.
  • Spent many hours playing this game and always enjoy it. Now, even better with Apple Silicon support. Please port to the iPad M1. Would be a great addition.

Software Reviews and Criticism

    Runs fine for me

    This game was so cheap that I had to give it a try, despite the poor reviews. So far, I’ve had no problems running it on a 5,1 quad core Windows Pro with Radeon 7870, so I’m not sure if some folks just don’t have the power to run this as the developer says (a little odd for a game that I recall playing on single core systems running Windows XP). For those that are complaining about graphical quality, that needs to be adjusted accordingly in game. Despite my more-than-adequate system, the game defaulted to a lesser resolution. Once corrected, my system has no trouble playing the game at 1080P with all the quality settings maxed out. I’ve played it for over an hour with no crashes or slowdowns, and it looks exactly like the Windows version that I wasted absurd amounts of time playing when this game first came out. Game data appears to be saved in your User folder, it’s just hidden a few layers down. Thanks for the memories and another reason not to dual boot!

    Launching Issues FIX

    I was weary to download this because of the price and the repeated reviews saying that the game would not launch. My greatest fear came true when I attempted to launch for the first time and it failed. However, by going into the game settings from the launch window, if you select one of the different aspect ratios for your screen, the game will launch and run just fine. As for the game itself, it is a timeless city running simulation. While the graphics haven’t held up too well to today’s standards, the gameplay is overall intuitive and addicting. SimCity is a classic game that is certainly worth the high price. Additionally, it is worth noting that many of the major glitches I had encountered playing this game as a child seem to be corrected. Overall great game.

    Made me smile`

    After having owned and played SimCity 2000, 3000, and 4, I’m quite attached to my SimCity series! I keep a PowerBook G3 around just to play SC 2000 natively. I was about to install Windows on my MBPr, but then I noticed one day SC4 is here in the app store! So, I purchased it and launched it…to find myself immersed in wonderful, original gameplay. Un-aged! It plays flawlessly on my Late 2013 MBPr 15”. It was $20 well spent! I’m so glad they brought this game into the Intel Windows world so gracefully. I haven’t noticed anything to complain about! I spend hours in this game. However, those of you who like trainers to cheat, I’m not sure you’ll have an easy time finding those for this version of SC4 on Intel Macintoshes. I haven’t tried, but it just came to mind.

    Broken mess

    I downloaded this app despite the one star reviews because I’ve had this game in the past and loved it and most of the complaints were about how plugins got deleted with the update. I was never really big into mods or plugins and liked to play the game as it was so I didn’t think much of the negative reviews. I wish I hadn’t bought the game, waste of twenty dollars. Since I installed the game, it’s been nothing but one problem after another. I couldn’t zone bigger than a 1x1 area and the city wouldn’t grow even when I gave it a go anyway. On top of that, something in the application made my computer freeze with a manual reset being the only way to get it going again. Even if I wasn’t playing the game, the computer would freeze. As soon as I uninstalled the game, everything went back to normal. Do yourself a favor, save your money and save aggravation and don’t buy this game.
