Sim City 4 Rush Hour Sim City 4 Rush Hour United Kingdom Retail Box ArtRequiring a copy of the original Sim City 4 to play, Rush Hour does something a little different for an expansion pack, with some quality ideas on top of the expected enhancements. Firstly, there's the traditional stuff. You get lots of new buildings, structures and such like to play with. There are more natural disasters you need to deal with, from police chases right down to alien invasions. And then there are more transportation tools as well, based on real-life systems across several American cities. All of these add significantly to your building palette, and justify the price of the expansion pack alone. But there are yet more surprising additions: the U-Drive in particular is great fun, allowing you to take full control over a vehicle such as a helicopter or ambulance and make your way through the city you built. It adds a genuinely fresh perspective to the game, whether you choose to go on a journey for leisure or strategic purposes. So too do little details such as personalising the signposting of your city, be it to name the odd street or to mark future development. The devil in Sim City has always been in the detail, and Rush Hour is packed with cool little extras like these. There are aren't many gripes: a powerful PC is recommended to get the most out of the pack, and you're not going to find every addition here useful. Nonetheless, full credit is due for an expansion pack that genuinely enhances the game it complements. --Simon Brew
