SimCity Societies: Destinations received average reviews. GameZone described it as a "decent expansion", but "not a must-have one". The review describes the game as more challenging than the original release of SimCity Societies, but "with just enough content to make it new".[5] GameSpot commented that the expansion "makes a decent game a good one", and went onto praise the game's increased complexity.[7] IGN concluded that SimCity Societies: Destinations "finally starts to make SimCity Societies feel worthy of the SimCity name." Their review acknowledges IGN's criticism of the original game for lack of direction, and praises the expansion pack for improvements to the gameplay. The review however also criticises the game for poor frame rate performance and repetitiveness.[6] 1UP.com also criticised the game's poor performance and described the expansion pack as redundant to the patches available for SimCity Societies.[4] PC Gamer UK assessed SimCity Societies: Destinations as "a weak add-on to an improving game".[8] Aggregate review websites gave scores of 67.80% on GameRankings,[9] and 62% on Metacritic.[8]
