Top 12 great SimCity alternatives: Tropico 4, Theme Hospital and more!

sim-city-alt-banner.jpgToday, we’d intended on posting our review of the long-awaited SimCity, the 2013 revamp of one of the most revered god game series of all time.

That includes us – we’ve yet been able to have substantial time with the game in order to put a review together to our usual standards.

      I had considered putting in Civ 5! But something about it's city-building aspects always feel secondary. In retrospect, it's an oversight – I'll add it in a bit later when I get a chance!
