Streets of SimCity is a 1997 racing and vehicular combat computer game published by Maxis. One of the game’s main attractions was the ability to explore any city created in SimCity 2000 by car in a cinematic style. The game, like SimCopter, is in full 3D and the player’s vehicle can be controlled using a keyboard, a joystick, or a gamepad. Another notable feature is the game’s network mode, in which players can play deathmatches with up to seven other individuals. Notably, it’s the last Maxis game to be developed and released without supervision by Electronic Arts, which acquired Maxis in the two months leading up to release and assisted development of Maxis games thereafter.
