Not the sequel I expected. Played it for 40+ hours but get disappointed by the small cities and online mode requirement.
Thank god I could choose another game from EA when all these SimCity servers went to shitz. I am playing Battlefield 3 more than ever and in that sense I am happy. SimCity is not worth buying in my opinion. I will try to revisit some time and hope things have changed dramatically, but my hopes are not high.
Also if you have designed a city in some way it is difficult to change it later on. Changing a high density street to an avenue? Not possible. Changing the route of a road that is connected to a building? Forget it without destroying your hard earned building.
It is just NO fun to play this game.
