YMMV / SimTower

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Yoot Tower has a bunch of short QuickTime films for the theater. See for yourself.
  • Disappointing Last Level: Due to there only being a couple of new things to build (both of them one-off items), four-star towers onwards suffer from this.
  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks: The popular opinion of Yoot Tower.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: A few facilities cannot be removed once placed (metro station, housekeeping, security) This can be very, very annoying if you misplace something.
    • To move from three stars to four stars, you must have a VIP visit a hotel suite and rate it well. Two issues:
      • You cannot control the timing of when this happens, unlike meeting other requirements.
      • To keep hotel rooms clean, you must build housekeeping, which cannot be deleted. If you do not wish to use hotel rooms, this means either permanently using up space in the tower, or building and destroying suites until the requirement is met, which can be expensive.
    • Many facilities have Arbitrary Headcount Limits. Some of the more annoying limits are to elevators (only 24 shafts, all types added together), and stairs/escelators(64 total of both)
