STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME

  • Summary: I was so exited for this game, ever since I had sim city 4 I wanted a great predecessor which EA tried to do on the DS but do to a lack of processing power fell short for me. Then I heard around New years that there would be another Sim City and it was better than the original, it was getting game of the year honours from everyone, so i thought well if it is getting these awards it must be good.

  • 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.

Here is where you went wrong.

  • 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 to do that.This makes the game a challenge an fun!
  • 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 make the game a challenge they put resources right in the center.An you have to build around it.Causing pollution to kill of residents.This makes them leave an bugs out incom...

  • 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. I love in a rural area where fast internet isn't always available so it is very disappointing that I can't enjoy my game because of it being terribly slow or not working.

SimCity: Frustrated Incorporated

  • Summary: My first Game Informer review was for a game I had never played a single entry in the franchise prior and ended up loving it to no end, and I rank it in my top 10 of all time.  In that review, I said I rarely write reviews and if I do, I either loved the game so much I felt I needed to share my experience with others, or that I felt I was so disappointed, that a warning needed to be sent out to everyone.

  • 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. If you are willing to deal with these randomally occuring problems you will still have a lot of fun with this game.

  • 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. Game maker Maxis, and EA assured us that was because calcualtions performed in the background required the server itself to do the heavy lifting. This was later admmited to be false, as well as proven by the gamming community.

  • Summary: I Bought this game because I loved the SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition and when I heard about the limited edition I thought it would be a great game also. What I did not know is that you have to have a internet connection all the time to play it and to register it. I found this very disappointing. I this game comes nowhere near SimCity 4.
