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.
I wouldn't pay the full price for it! It's a good game, not great. 3/5

Summary: It may not be the best game I have ever played from EA, but again who has? lol The constant connection to the internet doesn't bother me, but for many who can't afford it is not a good idea for EA to demand it out of its already dwindling rate of customers.

Summary: This game could have been so much better. Excluding the first week the servers are somewhat functional the delay between cities is a huge pain. The Ai are awful at finding their way around and are a big problem.
