    DO NOT BUY THIS GAME

    How do you mess up an easy win? Put EA in charge. I'm an expert at all the SimCity series games. After playing the new SimCIty for a couple hours, I would say there are some good points but they a...

    Very addicting, even when I can't play. A review of the game as is, not as it will be one day from now. .

    Since the March 5h release date, I have been pleasantly surprised and at the same time frustrated by the new Sim City. Seeing as how EA has claimed that the game is an MMO and the terms of use forces...

    Always on DRM is one thing, but "Servers Unavailable" = Cannot Play Game

    Rated on March 06, 2013 by mrbobbster

    SimCity is horribly broken mainly because everyone must login to the EA/Maxis DRM Server and STAY ONLINE but most people simply CAN'T. From what I have seen the DRM servers have been down or unav...

    Great Game. Worst Management.

    Rated on March 07, 2013 by limminho

    Rated on March 07, 2013 by oyvgi77

    Well, there not much to say, this is an awful game. The fact that i spent 39.99$ on this pile of dung is unbelievable. Takes forever to start a game, and when you have started, randomly you lose all ...
