Still a great game! I've played a few more recent clones and this seems to have been the zenith for me.

Buyer beware, although this is a fantastic city building game and in my opinion superior to the 2013 reboot of the franchise, Sim City 4 has recently become near unplayable on Steam due to a recent update of the steam client.

From one of the negative reviews posted on the Sim City 4 steam page:

Quote :
This is my favorite game but it is not playable on steam. I was forced to choose another provider after steams recent update destroyed the video qualities of this game. They refuse to admit it. April 15 2019 was the update - date is approximate.
If you're looking to buy Sim City 4, you should really consider buying the GOG.com version. It is currently $19.99 on GOG which is a far cry from $1.99, but GOG has SC4 on sale fairly often so you should not have to wait long.

Again, do not buy the Steam version of Sim City 4, it is not playable in its current state anymore.

Thank you for sharing that. In what way has Sim City 4 on Steam become near unplayable or that the video quality is affected?

So has anyone bought this and can say whether or not it includes the windows version? The only version I can see on steam contains both windows and mac versions but the one on fanatical says just mac
