SimCity 4 is a city-building simulation computer game developed by Maxis, a subsidiary of Electronic Arts. SimCity 4 has a single expansion pack known as Rush Hour which adds additional features to the game. The game allows players to create a region of land, and then to design and build a settlement which can grow into a city. Gameplay is divided into three "modes"; "God" mode, "Mayor" mode, and "My Sim" mode, each offers a different perspective for the player, as far as their point of view during the game.
For the success of a city, players must manage its finances, environment, and quality of life for its residents. SimCity 4 introduces night and day cycles and other special effects for the first time in the SimCity series. SimCity 4 was the first game in the SimCity series to primarily use a 3D engine to render its graphics. It received widespread acclaim, won several awards, and was one of the top ten selling PC games of 2003.
