There are a lot of issues with the game right now, I would wait a few weeks for EA to sort it out. The game requires continuous access to EA serves and this is where the problems are occurring. The Servers are either overloaded or have errors which result in lost games as well as other glitches. I have yet to be able to play with my friends because the game will not recognize my friend list on origin.

Overall very disappointing as what little of the game I have gotten to play is a lot of fun.

It's hard to believe that in this day and age of technology we still have to deal with garbage like this.

EA has made many mistakes over the years, but this game takes the cake.

The start of the problems as far as I am concerned was when they set up a pre-order without allowing people to pre-download the game files. So opening day you have thousands of people trying to not only download the game files, but trying to create cities.

Second to that was forcing EVERYONE who wants to play (including those that purchased copies on disc) to create an Origin account. Its also worth noting that this game requires an internet connection to play! What's that mean for those that live in areas that have spotty internet, or can't afford broad band? It means this game is not for you, so don't buy it.

The next problem is leaving thousands of people in the dark about what exactly is going on as the servers are constantly going down, and when they're up you constantly get booted and it doesn't save your game... The staff at EA were replying on the forums only to the few compliments that were there, and ignoring the slew of complaints, save for the few people that had their posts deleted due to vulgar language (Who can blame them?!).

The icing on the cake is the 300+ min wait time to talk to someone in tech support via chat, and god only knows how many hours the wait time is on the phone.

I wish I could review the actual game itself, but unfortunately it doesn't work!

SimCity could be a great game. SimCity could be a horrible game. There might not even be a game. It's all impossible to tell until EA fixes it's backend server. At this point, it simply doesn't work. At all. It's just a $60 icon on your desktop that leads to grief. If the SimCity launch were the invasion of Normandy, we'd all be wearing lederhosen. If it were a dog, it would be carried in Paris Hilton's purse, only dead, and have an unusual number of legs. You get the point. Avoid until the game is runnable.

Who came up with this price point? First of all this should be a 34.99 game, if it wasn't completely broken. So overpriced. Second, they really should be paying your $65.00 to beta test this for them. Maybe $$$imCity $ix will be the sequel that lets you play, not test their experimental servers.

I've played SimCity since its very first release back in the early 90s, and every version since. I've been playing this latest version since it's commercial release, on both Windows and Mac. I'm a huge sim fan, so I've played all the other city simulation games like Cities XL, as well as the niche games like Transport Tycoon and many others. Of late, I've been playing several very extended SimCity games. All of this to say these are not first impressions, but based on a long exposure and experience with this game.

To start the major negatives. First, you have to be online to play. They are working on an offline version, but it's not available yet. So, if you don't have a solid Internet connection, this isn't going to work for you. Second, the cities are quite limited in size. This limitation is apparent from the very first games, where you quickly run out of room. And apparently there's no plan to make the cities larger. Third, the game's mechanics may seem simple, but there's a lot going on underneath the hood, so you have to experiment a lot. I recommend buying the official Prima guide to the game to help explain how upgrades and everything else works. It's not a perfect guide, but there's no really useful alternative. Fourth, this game takes hours and hours to develop into something interesting. The early hours you wait for the density to build, and the money to roll, but to get to the high density and advanced buildings, you're looking at dozens and dozens of hours of play. That's not necessarily a bad thing, just that it is a requirement to play a long time. Fifth, there's no undo. If there was one thing I'd add right now, it's an undo.

EA needs to learn -- just like all the big publishers -- that DRM is a slap in the face to customers actually willing to pay the full price of their games.

I have YET to be able to actually connect to the game. It came out 3 days ago and I still cannot play because the servers are full/down/connecting/broken. I should NOT have to be online to play a single player game. When I go on trips I bring my laptop with me and play Sim City 4 quite a lot and with this new DRM thing you won't be able to. I have promptly asked for a refund and will not be buying this game until they scrap their DRM.

EA you guys really screwed us here.
