  1. It could have been so much more… -_-
    by monkeynutsmatt, United Kingdom - Sep 25th 2014

    SimCity is a franchise in which I had a lot of faith. From the earlier renditions I used to play as a child to the more recent simcity4. It seemed they had everything going for them and things could only get better. How wrong I was.

    Simcity (2013) took a massive step backwards in terms of development. Yes, the graphics are outstanding, Yes, there are more features and a newer feel to the game … Yet I couldn't help feeling this lacked the classic simcity charm.

    I could go into the exact reasons why I feel this is but i'll stick to that fundamental point (i'm sure you've all heard about it via youtube etc.)

    If you are looking for a new simcity game as you've played the previous ones to the points of sheer boredom - Purchase
    If it's on sale and you want to see for yourself if the thousands of dissapointed gamers are being to judgemental - Purchase
    If you are looking for an in-depth, engaging and time consuming game, stick to CIM or something with more soul.
