Essentially a toned down Simcity 4
SimCity Societies is a simple city-building game made by Tilted Mill Entertainment (not EA). The game is very simple - have your city survive and thrive.
It features many new cool features, although compared to the other games in the franchise it is much much easier. As for content, it's about as safe as you get with a game like this. You can set up dive bars, and people wander around visibly drunk (and, to my horror, loudly vomit), and pickpocketing happens. With crime in the city, you can sit down a police department and send out the SWAT. Nice. Aside from that, it's a great game, great for kids (guess I'm not one to be talking here) and I'd suggest it to a lot of people.
