Thanks to PAX East coming up and the Pokemon league I've been hitting my DS pretty heavily. While doing so I realized how much I was enjoying playing god/sandbox style games on the system as well. I had a copy of Theme Park and Zoo Tycoon along time ago but I think traded them in. So for my birthday I grabbed Sim City Creator and Civ Revolution.
I'm really enjoying them and now I'm noticing a lot more games out there that look decent. Anyone have recommendations for DS god/sandbox or even turn based strategy titles (aside from obvious Advance Wars)?
Are there any good updated theme park sims - I LOVE building parks and decorating them? How's Populous? Is World of Zoo fun without being too kiddy? I still have some leftover birthday cash and was thinking of giving my DS some more love. Are any of the Sims games a true electronic dollhouse like their PC brethren?
