Summary: Seriously. EA, NEVER LET A CRAPPY ARMATURE DEVELOPER DEVELOP FOR ONE OF YOUR GOOD FRANCHISES, EVER, EVER, AGAIN. This is really, one of the worst games ive ever played. It crashes for no reason, it locks up, and several other problems make this a very horrible experience. This game is bad.
Summary: There's not much I can add to what has already been said about this game. It is very easy to play and looks good, but other than that I can't recommend it. Not to mention the fact that we are now up to patch #5 and it STILL doesn't work right. I have a brand new, fully loaded for gaming computer.
Summary: I bought a computer specifically to run this game because reviews had said it is a total system hog. The new computer had all the requirements listed on the game box. 10 minutes into the tutorial Sim City Societies crashed my computer.
Summary: Where is Maxis!? The life and soul have been ripped out of this game. Only the cosmetics have improved. Instead of being a governor, you're now a town planner with no political decisions to make, like taxes and laws. Its just been simplified for children like Settlers was. Hopefully its a one off.
Summary: In a nutshell, this is not the SimCity I know or expected to see. I've played SimCity games from the very start, and what has made each one good in its own right is the gameplay. The control over all aspects of the city you manage is part of the appeal.
Summary: My six kids and I love the Sim City games, and we were excited about this one, but out of the seven of us, no one liked it. My sons complained that it was boring and didn't have interesting ways to destroy cities, and my daughters felt the gameplay was loose and pointless.
Summary: This game is NOT SimCity. It has little depth, almost no problem solving, and nothing that can't be fixed by spending money and replacing buildings. Money just rolls in once your city reaches critical mass, and that's not hard to do either.
Summary: As an avid SimCity fan, I am very disappointed to report that EA Games, who used a different company than the one which produced the SimCity games, has apparently rushed this game to the shelves for the holidays before it is ready.
Summary: i'm not a veteran sim city fan at all, but this game looked like an interesting take on the franchise - i thought you'd be able to create interesting societies and see how people act within them. wow, am i disappointed.
