5AMAZING!!!, Mar 23, 2023
This game is definetly worth the price you pay and makes Sim City a whole lot better! I especially like plopping Area 5.1 to get the UFO and decimate my city! (Ok here is a way to get an easy $10000... Ok build and iscolated build with a short peice of road connected to a fire station. Next use the fire disaster on the iscolated building and use the u drive it mode and select the fire truck. You should get the mission "Fire!". Accept it and because the fire station is right next door you put out the blaze in like two seconds. I made a FORTUNE doing this! So just BUY IT!

4A very good expansion pack overall, Feb 25, 2023
Rush Hour is a very good addendum to the already great SimCity 4. With it, you wil have more options to build your perfect and more realistic city. The addition of a new category of building type (Euro-Contemporary) adds variety to all your cities and new rewards and landmarks adds a great deal more visual interest. There are also more options for customizing your city, such as a greater variety in size of schools, police departments, fire departments, and recreational areas. If you crave a little action now and again, the U-drive it missions will also be of some interest to you.

Some things to keep in mind:

1) My computer exceeds all of the system requirements and the basic SimCity 4 ran fine on it. But Rush Hour made the scrolling action very choppy. If this happens to you, contact Aspyr tech support and see if you can get a replacement file entitled: "graphics rules.sgr." This solved my problem and the game runs smoothly now.

2) The code of your SimCity 4 will be slightly altered. If you have existing cities, be prepared for explosive growth after installing Rush Hour and possibly a massive deficit. You might need to greatly restructure some of your existing cities to become solvent again. In one large city, I went from breaking even in taxes to a $8000 deficit in a few months. Try to build up your funds to the millions before installing Rush Hour by running a surplus for many years so you have time to make your changes.

3) Rush Hour doesn't sound as good. Inexplicably, many sound effects, such as the destruction of buildings and roads have been virtually eliminated. I preferred the old sound effects.

Despite the nit-picking, Rush Hour is definitely a worthy purchase and makes a fun game even more so. Just be sure to prepare your cities properly before installing.

5Makes SC4 so much better..., Sep 11, 2023
At first I was unsure of the value of this game. I wasn't interested in the traffic or the You Drive It missions. However, after playing, these make the game so much more interesting. Also, the ease of play is much improved. Highly recomended to purchase with Sim City 4.
