The classic city simulation game returns to the Mac!
In SimCity™ 4, you don’t just build your city; you breathe life into it. Sculpt mountains, dig riverbeds, and seed forests as you lay the groundwork for your creation. Then, use your god-like powers to construct the most realistic metropolis you can imagine.
Whether you want to build mansions on mountainsides or cross canyons with bridges, the impact of your decisions is immediate. But while each click of the mouse can create, it has equal capacity to destroy. Capping an erupting volcano might save your city, or it might reroute lava down busy city streets. Sending police to quell a riot might calm down the crowd, or it might spur even further anarchy. With every decision you make, your city and your Sims will respond – for better or for worse. It’s up to you to be their guide.
The SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition includes both SimCity 4 and the Rush Hour expansion pack, which gives you more control over your city’s transportation options, plus two bonus disasters: UFO attack and Autosaurus Wrecks.
We even included the exclusive Mac “Custom Tunes” feature that allows your iTunes library to be played in the game!

Ratings and Reviews
Enjoy the game but some issues when running on Yosemite
Not much more to add really; I like the game but I’m unable to click about 1/3 of the buttons and menus (bug with OSX Yosemite?), which kinda kills it.
Nothing quite like the classics
I’ve been a SimCity fan ever since SimCity 1.2 on the Amiga and I admit I hadn’t played it for ages until I got SimCity 4 on my old iBook. When I sold my iBook SimCity went with it because it didn’t run nicely on the Intel MBP I had.
I loved the game so much I bought it on Steam which meant I had to play it in Windows on Parallels in order to play it but now I don’t have to.
Now we have SimCity 4 Rush Hour I fail to see why we would ever bother with the new Sim City which from everything I’ve read is such a pathetic application by comparison to this. If you’ve never wanted to play the new version then you definitely want to get this version.
Graphics on a Mac aren’t that good and the actual game play is dull and boring.
The rationalle behind how a city develops seems to be flawed.
The opening credits are annoying every time.
