The Burbs Review

Jan 16, 2011

The Burbs takes the now incredibly familiar city-building aspects found in other Facebook games (Social City, CityVille, etc.) and does nothing to add any originality to the formula. Specifically, the game is so similar to Social City that I’m surprised Playdom hasn’t spoken out in protest.

Big Business Review

Dec 11, 2010

City building sims are something of a fad right now, but few games follow the form to its logical conclusions so completely as Game Insight's Big Business. Want to sell that milk?

Here is a game that focuses on both production and refinement and, to a lesser extent, on the importance of city planning. True to its name, Big Business illustrates the interconnectivity of businesses throughout a city and the hard lesson that you must spend money to make money. Oh, and it's fun, too.

CityVille Review

Dec 7, 2010

CityVille is Zynga’s long-awaited entry in the city-building genre, which has proven itself amazingly durable on Facebook. Where many city-builders must be played strictly in brief bursts, CityVille actually offers enough to do that you can spend a considerably longer amount of time with it per session. In theory you can only do things until you run out of energy, but I found myself needing to wait for things to happen more often than I found myself waiting for my energy to regenerate.

CityVille Preview

Nov 17, 2010

As a kid, I’ll always remember the first time I encountered New York City. Driving in the back seat of the family car up Interstate 95, I recall staring at the Manhattan skyscrapers in awe as they rose over the horizon into the skyline.

Yesterday afternoon, Zynga gave me a sneak peak of its upcoming game, CityVille. It wasn’t the exact same feeling as staring at Manhattan for the first time, but it sure comes close.

Social City Review

Apr 21, 2010

When it comes to Facebook games, Social City has been the biggest runaway success of 2010 so far. In little more than six weeks since its debut, the popular city-builder’s audience has grown to more than 12 million users. Looking to branch that success out, Playdom has just released an iPhone version of their smash hit. But don’t get too excited – the developers behind this app seem to think that to get the game to fit in your pocket they’d need to shrink down the gameplay too.
