Inside Mac Games' Steven Marx has posted a new review of Aspyr Media's SimCity 4: Deluxe Edition. The new release of the game features an update to support OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion (and above) and includes bug fixes, performance enhancements, and other updates such as native resolution support.

Here's an excerpt:

Both the interface and the gameplay in SC4 have been tweaked from previous versions, in my opinion mostly for the better. You have somewhat more fine-grained control over the types of zones you create, and better access to the data you need to make those zoning decisions. SimCity 3000 simplified some elements of gameplay, in particular the laying of electrical wires from zone to zone, and that is carried over into SC4. Providing water through pumping stations is similarly easier than in earlier versions. And unlike EAs SimCity, you still have the ability to mold the land to your desires before you actually start your city; you can even add animals. You can do this to a lesser and more expensive degree after you start your city, also as in previous versions. While the interface and number of places to look for things to build and data to examine can be daunting for new users, once you get used to it it's relatively easy to find what you need. And all that stuff makes for a more realistic and, to me, fun experience.
