Summary: For the brief moments that I have been able to play the game without issues it has been fun. But since there is no off line game (Huge mistake EA/Maxis) the game has been rarely available to play. You would figure if you pay $60 for a game you might get to play it. The new updates have affected the inner workings of the game play causing my successful city to crumble. I've had to restart my cities so many times because of these issues.
Summary: I don't usually review games, but this one is so bad that I feel compelled to warn you all. I (unlike a lot of people) like the MySims games. Even though the controls can be kind of awkward, eventually you get used to them and they are fun, so I live with the controls. This however, has no story, no point, the controls are ridiculous, and it is next to impossible to make money.
Summary: First i jus want to say that i LOVE Simcity, since the very 1st release ive been playing it...but this version is yucky poo poo! The terrible controls make this version annoying and unplayable! The graphics are also very disappointing! Its been 5+ years since Simcity 4 when are we gona get a "real" Simcity 5 instead of these sucky imitations?!
Summary: A real disappointment. You have much more control with the PC than with the Wii, which is too sensitive for this game. Sadly the graphics are awful and cutesy to the extreme, it looks more like a game specifically made for people under 10 rather than everyone. I love Simcity, but I hate this version. I still love my Wii, but I'll be going back to SimCity4 for PC.
Summary: HORRIBLE. After playing several sim games over the last few years, I got hooked on the sim city for the iphone game. When I found this for the Wii I thought it would be fun to play on the big screen and ran out to get it. Bad move. The Wii control makes this game frustrating, at best, nauseating at worst and there is no way to "freeze" the map of the city. Every little move of the hand causes the map to careen out of view. Wish I had just bought the PC version.
Summary: Having played Sim* since the 80s, this was - to my tremendous surprise - a horrible experience. The graphics are from circa 1999, the UI control via the Wiimote is horribly twitchy, the interface is "dumb" when trying to connect bits of roads or power lines. Its not fun to play. I imagine they took the circa 2000 SimCity and handed it over to some interns. Its the first Wii game I've actually regretted buying.
Summary: I anticipated playing this game and it being just as good as simcity 4 for the pc. When I opened up the game I realised it is nothing like its pc counterpart. A lot of dumbing down, inferior graphics and a lot less enjoyable to play. In fact I only played it once for about half an hour before I had to turn it off - it's totally appalling. Would not recommend to anyone who has played Simcity 4.
