Motion denied.

  • Summary: As someone who does this game-reviewing gig alongside serving as a real-life mayor of a small town in Canada, I come at a game like SimCity from a different angle than most. Not that different, mind you.
  • Pros: Great interface, visuals, and accessible gameplay can still hook you for limited amounts of time, Concept of working with other regional mayors is interesting, though unrealistic
  • Cons: Unrealistic zoning mechanics lead to a lot of problems with city development, Multiplayer remains problematic, especially with connecting to servers, City size limitations are incredibly annoying, Multicity focus turns cities into tiny nation-states and mayors into little dictators, Your duties h...

SimCity Review

Game Over Online
27 March 2013
  • Excerpt: In sitting down to write this review, I spent a good long while thinking to myself, “What can I possibly say that hasn’t already been said?” From one end of the Internet to the other, endless stories of server shutdowns, data-corrupted cities, and idiotic motorists have bounced around in an online...

  • Conclusion: Ultimately, SimCity is going to go down as a “what could’ve been.” What could this title have been if the developers (and publisher) weren’t so adamant about the always-online business?

  • Summary: The splines aren't reticulating I love the SimCity series. I played the first one for countless hours growing up, and my younger years were filled with endless play sessions of SimCity 2000 and 3000 . I wanted to like the latest SimCity.

SimCity review

15 March 2013
  • Conclusion: There was a time, perhaps eight or nine hours in, when I wondered why SimCity was so easy. Nobody ever complained about the air pollution, while using my depot to sell my recycling netted me endless profits.

SimCity review – failure to launch

Metro
12 March 2013
  • Summary: The launch day issues are irrelevant when compared to the more intrinsic flaws that sacrifice the game’s potential for stifling corporate control and tiny cities.
  • Pros: The interface and graphics are perfect, with all the information you could want at your fingertips and a great attention to detail.
  • Cons: The small size of the cities is an unforgiveable limitation, as is the flawed multiplayer and awkward single-player. Riddled with bugs and already infamous launch problems.

SimCity - Test

Eurogamer
14 March 2013
  • Summary: Fassen wir also zusammen: Präsentation in Ordnung, Mehrspieler-Konzept Geschmackssache, technische Umsetzung mangelhaft, Kartengröße zu klein und dazu gesellen sich noch gelegentliche Probleme mit den Servern und die DRM-Kontroverse - insgesamt hinterlässt SimCity keinen guten Eindruck.

SimCity

PC Only
9 March 2013
  • Summary: Het is tien jaar geleden dat er een volwaardige SimCity-game is verschenen (Societies tel ik niet mee). Dat is een absurd lange tijd en ik snap eigenlijk niet waarom het zolang geduurd heeft. SimCity 4 is nog steeds erg populair met vele actieve spelers.
  • Pros: Bouwen steden erg verslavend, Plannen loont, Duidelijke en informatieve interface, Veel kleine details
  • Cons: Samenwerking riskant maar noodzakelijk, Beperkte ruimte elke stad, Veel bugs, Serverproblemen

Tom's Games
30 November 2007
  • Summary: Quatre ans après SimCity 4, les amateurs de la fameuse série vont enfin pouvoir délivrer de nouveaux permis de construire... À moins que le résultat ne soit pas tout à fait à la hauteur.
  • Pros: Variété des styles de villes, Nombreux bâtiments, nombreuses récompenses
  • Cons: Une gestion simplifiée à l'extrême, Aucune difficulté, aucun défi, Gourmand et instable, Rien à voir avec un SimCity
