Examiner.com has posted a review of the PC version of SimCity, which will be coming to Macs on June 11. Development of the latest incarnation of the popular city building sim was led by Maxis. SimCity Mac will feature "the same deep, rich gameplay that will define the PC experience as players on both platforms compete or collaborate to create a new world, together."

I also like the ability to add onto and expand buildings with new modules and improvements. For example, you can add a larger patient wing to your Health Clinic to handle increased demand. Need more fire men? Add more garages to your fire station. And if your power grid needs some extra juice, you can add more wind turbines or solar cells (I like green power) to your power plants.

Virtually all major buildings (schools, police, fire, hospitals, power, water, sewage treatment, and others) have multiple add-ons you can unlock and build to improve them. There are also specialized expansions for your city hall that unlock as your population grows, which in turn serve to help you specialize your city and unlock new structures. Adding a new module to City Hall unlocks new structures and services.

For example: Add the Office of Tourism to your City Hall and unlock various tourist attractions, including a sports stadium, expo hall, theatre, and many more. Some of these buildings in turn give you the ability to schedule revenue-generating events —so long as you can build the necessary infrastructure to ensure a healthy supply of tourists. Other tourist attractions simply help draw tourists—and their hard-earned simoleans—into your city to help your businesses thrive.
