SimCity 3000 under Virtual PC

SimCity 3000 under Virtual PC

SimCity 3000 continues to build on the success of the previous SimCity releases - with the same old strategy.  Take the base game, add more complexity, add more options, add more realism and modeling - and I have to say, it rocks!  The only downside of SimCity 3000 is that this is the first version of SimCity that does not run in an easily minimizable window.  Given that SimCity is a game where you can regularly spend long stretches of time just looking at the screen - I like to be able to switch away and do things like check my email.  Thankfully this is easily solved by running it inside of Virtual PC:

  • How fast does this game run under Virtual PC when compared with running it native on the host operating system? Is it nearly as fast, or much slower?
  • I regretfully sold my copy SimCity 3000 for a meager $5 a few years back. I may have to consider buying another copy now.
