  • Summary: Having been a SimCity original enthusiast as a kid, I was excited to pick up the new game for myself and my son.
  • Pros: The graphics and overall gameplay.
  • Cons: Even though it is a disk install, you are required to install third-party software to play the game.

  • Pros: Terrain, Freedom
  • Cons: Loading, Slow Learning Curve, Everything is fairly automatic, Little Customization Possible

User Review

  • 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. The graphics are 4/5, music/sound is 3/5 (cute but not that great), and playthough is 4/5 (I get bored of one town, or get bankrupted due to unreasonable high demand of something from the sims and unable to satisfy...

  • Summary: For the price you pay you get what you really pay for. It's an older game so the graphics suck. Good game though.

So bumpy

  • 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. Ex: I would have my city complain about trash so I put more garbage trucks I see 10 garbage trucks on the same lane trying to pick up one person trash when all my other streets continue to complain about trash with not a single truck on the street.
