Here is where you went wrong.

William R., Newegg
22 May 2014
  • 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...

Major Dissappointment

Casey, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • 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.

Disaster

Bustin, Game Informer
15 March 2013
  • 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.

User Review

Dimonte, Metacritic
7 March 2013
  • Summary: Could have been a brilliant game, but right now it's almost completely decimated by unreliable cloud saves, tiny maps, lack of terraforming and tacked-on online features.

The consequences of online-DRM

Jason Lyon, Amazon
6 March 2013
  • 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.

Doesn't work for updated computers

  • Summary: This game doesn't work for any system basically made it the past 10 years which is ridiculous considering no one has that old of a system.

OK for little kids, NOT ok for fans of SimCity.

Adeptus Astartes Mechanicus, Amazon
15 August 2012
  • Summary: This SimCity Societes game was ok for a couple of hours when it first came out, but it bottomed out fast. Unlike the "real" SimCity titles, this was more like a poorly done cross between The Sims (without the fun of getting to know your Sims) and SimCity, without the economic simulation aspects.

Don't buy for kids

Vicki L. Taylor "babs98019", Amazon
10 August 2010
  • Summary: The game sounds fun and very innovative, but it is very addicting. My 23 year old daughter has it and it causes many family fights. Her stupid ex-boyfriend bought it for her and it uses up too much of her valuable time.

Yah...

Vicki L. Taylor "babs98019", Amazon
12 March 2007
  • Summary: I played this game with my friends and I ended up getting in trouble. I had played the original "Sim" games with my dad and we both enjoyed them, but this...this...well, I really don't know what this is.
