Expert Review

  • 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...

  • Summary: 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

29 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Just in case we get bogged down reviewing Electronic Arts’ poisoning of an otherwise excellent franchise instead of getting into the nitty-gritty of the game itself, allow us to present a Cheetah Speed review of SimCity up-front (assuming EA has turned that feature back on by the time you read...
  • Pros: Lovely graphics; unique multiplayer component; city specializations have a great potential to add uniqueness to the game.
  • Cons: Always-on Internet requirement; numerous game-breaking bugs; Sims lives not “simulated;” numbers don’t add up; game lacks terraforming.

  • 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?

3 September 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

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.

  • 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
