It doesn't get any better. I have owned this game for about three years now and I still play it. There is simply no other game I can make this statement about. It is beautiful graphically. The sound is great. The gameplay is fantastic. There are some bugs, I will admit. It is also not an easy game. It takes a long time to figure out all the ins and outs of the game and how to master it. This is one of the reasons the game is so great.
In addition, there is an active and dedicated game community. This, three years and more since the game was released. There are still daily updates covering everything from buildings to pathfinding, cosmetic changes all the way to the very core of the game itself.
Simply put, the game gets better, not worse, with age.
I have not and don't expect to find a better game until SimCity 5 is released.
