SimCity 4: Deluxe Edition is an enhanced compilation package featuring both SimCity 4 and its first expansion pack, SimCity 4: Rush Hour. For those unfamiliar with the games, SimCity 4 offers players the chance to act as an omnipotent being and mayor, literally sculpting the terrain to create mountains, valleys, and rivers before laying the groundwork for a budding metropolis. Players can also create lightning storms, hurricanes, fires, and more to see if their creation can withstand the ravages of the elements. As mayor, it is the player's responsibility to ensure economic growth, prosperity, and a hospitable place to live with low crime. Characters from The Sims can also inhabit cities, providing players with valuable feedback on the quality of life.
