With SimCity Creator, at least, familiarity hasn't bred contempt. This is not only the definitive handheld version of the much-loved and enduringly popular town-planning sim (and the papers say video games just encourage you to murder folk to death) it's possibly also the definitive version of SimCity. The problems of municipal administration have never been so much fun. There's no way to write that sentence without sounding sarcastic, you realise."
