The search for the best city in SimCity is on.

Released earlier this week from EA and Maxis, the popular game allows creators to build and control their own personalized cities.

Though the new game has been getting a lot of flack due to server issues, there's no denying that once players are logged on and able to build, users are having a lot of fun letting their inner engineers go wild.

From breathtaking to creative, we've scoured the web to find some of the best cities people have built from the ground up.

Since gameplay has been spotty with down servers, some of the best cities right now are the pre-installed ones.
