I'm curious if anyone had any opinions on this. I'll admit that I haven't played SimCity 2000 that much over the years. And at this point I imagine it would be a pain in the backside to get the game to run on a modern PC, but SimCity 2000 was ported to a ton of systems over the years. So I was wondering what people thought of the various ports for SNES, GBA, and so on.
SimCity 2000 is out on GOG, so I don't think it'll be that much trouble to get it to run on modern machines. It just might be running the DOS version in DOSBox or so though.

I think any version with a mouse would be essential, I can't imagine playing it with a controller/dpad. SNES version might have some cool tunes though.
From what I understand they tend to simplify the handheld versions a lot. A good example of this is them getting rid of pipe laying or all of the land being perfectly flat.

I bought SimCity 2000 on GOG ages ago when it was on a massive sale. It was one of my fave games back in the day. Even rented it on the SNES (iirc). I still have the SimCity 2000 box on my shelf (next to Baldur's Gate 2). I use it to store some old game manuals from the 90s.

from what I recall, the nintendo version played okay, but looked nicer on a PC. There weren't any cool Nintendo-specific changes, either. The original SimCity port for SNES was much more well done, and added a lot of fun elements and objectives. I guess I was hoping for more of that in the 2000 port for N64.

I will try to install the GoG version on my Windows 10 machine and report back.
The version with Urban Renewal Kit that let you edit all of the sprites.

That's the one I had. It was one of my first forays into game "modding"

I installed the GOG SimCity 2000 on my Windows 10 laptop and it worked fine! I built a quick town, did a few budgets, and then decimated the commercial district because I failed to supply it with enough water.
