Summary: Not as good as sim city4 as in it has no terrain editor, the city maps can not be customized and are very small. But the graphics are amazing, I hope they do some updating to the game and it would have a higher rating but I got it for cheap at walmart online so I will play it.
Pros: The game is a LOT of fun.An a little hard work juggling expenses.Buildings cost a bit too much to maintain.Some too unrealistic.For a Police precinct they want $1700 simoleons.It should be $900.It is double.This makes putting down things needed too hard.Not so much a challenge but it IS possible ...
Cons: Hazmat trucks do not come with the hazmat building.Buildings like a Hospital is completely ridiculous in expenses!These things could be overlooked if your still pulling in a profit.But the problem is maps are TO SMALL!You just do not have enough room to grow.Not only that but in a lot of cases to...
Summary: Simcity is another example of a fine game ruined by EA, in terms of the double city pack it is far from balanced, basically reinforcing a pay to play mentality.... along with in game advertising.
Summary: Awesome game. I love the gameplay, love the graphics, and love how more flexible it is in some areas. However, I wish it was more flexible like Simcity 4. I always loved being able to create my own landscapes, choose the size of the city, and actually have the game work the majority of the time.
Summary: fun iteractive gameplay that seems to never end. Very addictive but is not worth the troubles that come along with the game. The servers are unreliable at time and the game will randomally exit and and loose all of your data.
Summary: Simcity was a game that I held high hopes for, only to be let down quickly when I actually was able to play it. The Always online was an annoyance, one that looking back should have steered me away from the game all together.
Summary: Take one of the most beloved PC franchises and completely and disastrously ruin it and that is the new Sim City. Set aside the huge pain in the ass always online requirement, and the terrible server issues and the game is still extremely buggy.
Summary: I'm going to ignore the server login issues, however once you are in the game you do run out of space quite fast, again not a problem as you increase density. The major issue I have with this game is that you need to cannibalise your city to provide services such as water, power, recycling, etc.
Summary: Normally I don't like to knock a game review because of specific DRM practices but for SimCity I'll make the exception. When you can actually play the game (like I did from 8am -12pm on launch day) it's an absolute blast.
