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.

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.

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 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.

The game has fabulous graphics and promises a really good quality of strategy game.

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.

If you are unfortunate enough to buy this be aware that:
- 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.

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.

SimCity was a game that I looked forward to with anticipation. Partly because the play in SimCity 4 was somewhat disappointing compared to earlier versions and partly because the new graphics and improved feedback from the city's Sims sounded quite intriguing. Unfortunately, the new SimCity was a major letdown in many ways. The first unpleasant surprise was that my CD was essentially useless, as playing SimCity requires a constant and unbroken connection to the internet. While I could accept having to log in to an Origin account to initiate and authorize SimCity on my computer, having to constantly maintain an online connection to use my software seems overly draconian. At the very least, there should be a very strong warning in the game advertising warning the potential buyer that this is an unavoidable requirement and that the game is useless without a robust internet link.
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.
