My son really enjoyed the game. He has a lot of fun playing it. I didn't want him to buy it because of some of the negative reviews I'd read about the game but now I'm glad we bought it. The only negative we had was the difficulty in purchasing via ship-to-store.

My 11 year old loves it.

My son enjoys making the cities and the game makes him think about how it all comes togethwr. He is learning about what makes a city successful and what doesn't.

Maxis couldn't have done any more.

This game is by far fun to play. Maxis did a great job with the game. Although the servers are down a lot, once you are in the game and playing the down servers have no affect on you. This game is a 5/5 no doubt, but that potential is kind of shot since you have to be connected to the internet even when you are just playing single player. Game's still a little bit buggy as well, but for the 3 days I have had this game I have been extremely impressed and have to force myself to get off and get some sleep.

Those darn server issues!!!

I really think the game is a lot of fun and it has a ton of new concepts. If you liked sim city 2000, you would really enjoy this game. The graphics are great, the concept is real, and if it weren't for the server issues, I would have given it 5 stars.

good game overall

as the summary states this is overall good game only three things i didn't quite like 1. the maps are a little small needs more space to expand the cities 2. the game gets a Little repetitive 3. you plop a fire department/police station/garbage dump and no matter how much you add on to the building it doesn't quite work as in buildings still burn down criminals don't get arrested and people die of diseases so ya

Developer needs to improve on it lacking features

Not as good as sim city4 as in it has no terrain editor, the city maps can not be customized and are very small. But the graphics are amazing, I hope they do some updating to the game and it would have a higher rating but I got it for cheap at walmart online so I will play it.

Some things better than older versions, some not

Animations, interactions and some of the newer detail better than older versions. Don't like the restricted borders and the lack of ability to alter terrain.

A great game ruined by poor online system.

Simcity was a game that I held high hopes for, only to be let down quickly when I actually was able to play it. The Always online was an annoyance, one that looking back should have steered me away from the game all together. Game maker Maxis, and EA assured us that was because calcualtions performed in the background required the server itself to do the heavy lifting. This was later admmited to be false, as well as proven by the gamming community. Now they say that they had to make it online, because it was their vision to do so. What about your customers visions of what a franchise was, and should be? Aside from the horrible Online aspect, the game itself has glaring flaws. (though Maxis is trying to work to improve them.) First and foremost is traffic issues, the sims will always take the shortest path from point A to B, even if that path is a two lane dirt road. Secondly, the sims always start the day unemployed, and fill in jobs starting with the closest to them. This too causes traffic congestion with every sim in the game going for one open job till it's full, then onto the next closest. Fire trucks and other emergency vehicles spend all their time in traffic, almost making their addition in your city pointless. I am sure within a few months, all these points will be addressed and likely fixed. That doesn't take away from the fact that the game shipped out on day one, was unplayable, and as of this writing still is if you have any serious intentions to make a working city when playing.

This game must be played on-line,if your internet connection fails this game cannot be played,origin servers are constantly down or experiencing problems,crashes just as much if not more than SimCity4,and each time I've been brought back to the tutorial,5x so far.

Can't use

I will be returning this game. We live in an area the does not have high speed internet and this game can only be played online. Which would uses excessive amounts of our bandwidth.

1. I have never played SimCity but according to Wikipedia "Singleplayer mode was released on March 18, 2014, as part of update 10.0. This does not require an internet connection, and worlds are saved locally. Also, global market prices in offline mode will be fixed."
by bougiemon
2. No, you must have a constant Internet connection in order to use this game.
by Rye2085
3. You are required to have an internet connection to play the game at all. Game saves are also saved to EA servers, not your local computer. Steer clear of this game and play the older ones.

1. Yes. In fact I played it on my Win8 machine. The real issue is not being able to play at all because of the DRM requiring an always online connection. You might have a good internet connection, but if the servers for the game are offline, you just can't play it.
by DeadlyJoaquin
2. Yes, however; EA has a mandatory online mode, meaning you must be online to play, and their servers cant take the stress of it so no one has been able to really play since its release :( save your money until they fix the problem.
by Beemerw
3. Yes It will. It will currently always work as long as the sservers hold.
by TheReveiwer1
4. Yes! I play mine on windows 8. the game is designed for xp, 7, and windows 8
by FlyinBryin89
5. Well since the game came out when Windows 8 was already out, it should work on Windows 8! Thanks for asking! -Cutie64646 :)
