    Unbelievable, on-line DRM must die!

    You can think that a game like this should be good but all the unfortunate fellows that paid and pre-ordered this game (which isn't cheap, not forgetting to mention that this was suppose to be a gold mine for EA with all... Read Full Review

    Very dissapointing game :*(

    I'm taking the server issues completely aside, cause IMO just this one thing should result in the closure of this worthless games corporation called EA / Maxis. /they simply cheated their clients, and than couldnt even s... Read Full Review

    Useless due to Required Internet ALWAYS

    Useless game that won't connect and when does always drops as internet has to be ALWAYS online 100% in order to play single player. Most useless waste of time and money which I can't get back. Servers have yet to come on... Read Full Review

    This is a new add to the disastrous sequence of bad experience games such as Sim City Societies and Spore. Too bad...

    This is a new add to the disastrous sequence of bad experience games such as Sim City Societies (is it a Sim City game really?) and Spore (bugs, non-exciting middle game). It seems that Maxis has forgotten how to make go... Read Full Review

    Great game, but those servers are driving me crazy!

    Guess what? If you'd love to experience the nonstop thrills and excitement of SimCity, then please remove $60 from your bank and promptly pay someone to kick you repeatedly in the friggin' mouth. I find it incredibly ... Read Full Review

    Their servers are broken, making it impossible to play.

    If this game was playable, offline, as a single player experience it would probably be just fine. As is, the EA servers are broken and if you know EA customer "support"...well, suffice it to say, I doubt they will be fi... Read Full Review

    Triple-A Scam Release

    This game has been a complete disappointment as both a gamer and Simcity fan. The months leading up to release were nothing but hype and advertising to get you to pre-order. Even the beta was just a demo to get Youtub... Read Full Review

    Always online + DRM is an instant fail for me

    Failing servers, false promises, small map sizes, etc. The launch of this game is as disappointing as the Mass Effect 3 ending. I loved playing Simcity, spent months playing previous versions, but this atrocity ruined m... Read Full Review

    The bottom line: SimCity is not good.

    This game could have been something wonderful. The GlassBox engine looked like it would do the game justice. It looked, initially, like a huge step up from SimCity 4. In reality, it is the complete opposite. I knew early... Read Full Review
