SimCity: An idea still going strong

SimCity was one of the original sim games and a classic in its genre. But when looking at versions such as SimCity for iPhone (which I review here), what stands out is how the game hasn't evolved compared to other titles in the genre. Whereas other titles have focussed, as is the trend with various mobile games, with asset-building and the opportunity to incessant in-app purchases, SimCity remains true to the original: it is heavily strategy focussed and asset-building is not a straightforward process that will happen by "default" as you progress with the game.
