SimCity: Cities of Tomorrow is a visually appealing addition that unfortunately only runs skin-deep. It’s an attractive new world that can be developed under your whim, but it doesn’t fix any of the core issues SimCity had in the first place, and actually makes them more apparent.

Given how loud the critics were back then, it's disappointing that Maxis and EA did little to address any of these gripes, particularly the restricted city borders. This expansion may be set in the future, but the game is stuck in the past.

Crashing and burning has always been part of the fun of SimCity, though, and while these sorts of incidents are annoying, they're not game-breaking. Cities of Tomorrow is both a good expansion to the core game and a perfect entry point for a newcomer. Just don't let the power go to your head.

By IGN on 75

Cities of Tomorrow provides plenty to remind returning ones what SimCity is capable of, and it’s certainly something to behold. Some parts of the future are stuck in the past, but it’s strikingly well-balanced, providing solutions for existing problems and new toys to tinker with that counteract each other nicely.

SimCity: Cities of Tomorrow definitely looks the part with futuristic buildings sprouting up in your city in no time, just don’t think that the game will be so easy to handle. The fact that moving into the future does not run as smoothly as you would like probably shows the quality of the game...

But I've also been called away from my mayoral duties by police officers complaining about non-existent crime, by reports of full classrooms from empty schools, by a transport advisor who said my streetcars were lost. Every time I've reached for the future, it's brought me back to the present. Just as I was having fun.

I am giving this expansion pack a 9/10 rating because of the addictive gameplay, impressive visuals, catchy music and Maxis humour. The future of this franchise is bright and I can’t wait to see what else Maxis has in store for us in 2014. SimCity Cities of Tomorrow is now available worldwide.
