What Gamespot Users have to say about SimCity
Day 1: Could not get on a server. Booo Day 2: I went on around 10:30 in the morning and I was able to complete the tutorial, but but not without server disconnects. At the end the game could not connect to a server a... Read Full Review2 of 7 users found the following review helpful
It looks pretty neat on the surface, but once you realize nothing is really simulated, you'll come to the sad conclusion that EA has ripped you off once again. 1) RCI is no longer an equation. One could simply buil... Read Full Review5 of 6 users found the following review helpful
A Broken, unfinished game that had no business going on sale. Its almost impossible to connect and is required to play.
i have had the game for a week now and i have only been able to play 20 minutes, as every time i try to play after work their servers are down or when they are up there is too many users for their one server here in AUS ... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
What a waste of my time. I've waited for this game since it was announced. I watched their videos telling me how great it was going to be, and what the engine could do. Now that it's out, I see some of those were outrigh... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful

10 hours trying to start the game, could only create 1 city. Now 2 days later i cannot load my city anymore.

Wow, EA good job on ruining a great game. What compelled them to make this game Internet based? Why is my map so small? Why did I pay $60 or $90 to not be able to play it? EA has been bombarded by these questions, and ... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
First thing that occurred after I bought the game were server issues. The ones which everybody has been reporting for the last. But even now, with most (not all, not nearly all) of the sever issues fixed we find the majo... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
For one, I do not think that Gamespot should have given the game a 5.0 out of 10. I think it is a better game than that. Yes, the server mess was an atrocity. However, the game is great idea, but has flaws in it's exe... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
