Overall very disappointing as what little of the game I have gotten to play is a lot of fun.
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.Read more ›
EA you guys really screwed us here.
Though the Digital Rights Management System "Origin", is utterly failing. Servers can't be contacted, or are off line/overloaded. There is no way to play without contacting the servers via the internet.
(Even a single player mode requires contact with the servers!)
I purchased the game but returned it. It was impossible to even start the game...
Steer away, get something else.
I feel really sorry for the programmers and artists that have made this game. It's a silly company policy that "breaks" their game. Digital Rights Management is good, but then simply make it work Electronic Arts.
- you will only be able to play after 30-60 minutes of trying to find a server to let you in.
- be prepared to be subject to the tutorial each and every time you do successfully log in.
- don't expect to save your game. As a bonus it rubs your nose in the fact that your city isn't saved only after it nukes your data.
Even if this unacceptable flaw is overlooked, the actual game play is weak compared to prior versions of SimCity. It simply isn't a good simulation and any hope of intelligent strategy is severely curtailed. The potential of city development is totally hampered by the small and often awkward footprint of almost all sites. Interaction between cities is also limited and development of a city is made to depend on the terrain and resources available. There is no longer the ability to develop your own city sites as in Version 4, and the ability to terraform the terrain that you're given has also been taken away.
On the positive side, the graphics are quite spectacular. The player interface is quite user friendly and the feedback from your Sims is much improved over earlier versions. There is also the ability to develop existing utilities and buildings rather than having to add new items.Read more ›
