    At first there seems to be a lot under the hood

    Have you ever wanted to create and manage your very own society? If so, you need to wait for that game to come out, because Simcity Societies is all about placing a few buildings and push a few buttons here and there.... Read Full Review

    Incredible graphics and nice simulation elements doesn't compensate the growing pain and not-simcity-style gameplay.

    It's definitely not a SimCity Series game. It's not a city developing game, it's a ready-to-plop set of buildings that can make you really pissed off if you hate The Sims. As I said, this is a The Sims-style city buil... Read Full Review

    Simply can't belive it...

    I was always a big fan of SimCity games... I remember when SC 3000 came out, it was fascinating, I could play it for days. Then SC4, but only with the Rush Hour expansion. And then this. I don't know what to say. It w... Read Full Review

    Not Your Father's SimCity

    I've played this game now for a few days. I can see where a lot of people would be ticked off. There's a real danger in taking a well established franchise and attempting to improve and update to a better game yet st... Read Full Review

    Not for the SimCity fan. It looks good, but that's all it can do.

    Usually, when it comes to reviewing games, I like to break it down into various sections, such as Graphics, Sound, Gameplay, and so on. However, with this game, I simply cannot do it. This is not like the previous Si... Read Full Review

    A Tedious Blackmark On A Once Great Franchise

    If you are an avid SimCity fan, then you won't even recognize this title once you get into the game. Not that it's innovative or anything; In fact, I have yet to find anything that I would consider an original element. I... Read Full Review

    A game without a purpose, no purpose to be made, or played

    Without a doubt I saw this one coming, as soon as I heard that Maxis would have nothing to do with this game, I knew this was another one of EA's poorly thought out money making plans. Not to make a great game, but make... Read Full Review
