    This is really quite shocking to me.  I don't think that I have ever seen this happen before.  I definitely think it's high time that reviews weight problems caused by game architecture just as heavily as the gameplay itself.

    Finally, some consequences are being doled out over the genuine sloppiness the game has degraded to.  I only wish someone would give this thing a rating with a certain number I'm thinking of.  This number looks a bit like a circular city you can build in this game.

    I am definitely in a "wait and see" mode in terms of whether I am going to buy this new version.  SC4 has served me well for 10 years and I'm content to continue with it unless I see compelling evidence that the new SC (2013) is up to SC4 standards.  It appears, at this point, that it is not.

    The problems with the game are CRIMINAL!  People are out there PAYING FOR a product that doesn't even COME CLOSE to doing what it was advertised to do...  I wish we could get word out to EVERYONE still planning to buy this game and tell them NOT TO. EA deserves a big fat goose egg on their quarterly report under "revenue" after this mess.  Having owned SC 2000, 3000, and 4, I would have purchased this installment just to have it, even though I now have little to no time to play it.  That ship has sailed... I stayed on board for all the "always-online," or "sometimes-online" crap that was force fed during development, but wow, this is now nothing short of a train wreck... Reading all the horor stories about how BASIC FUNCTIONALITY is impossible to achieve has caused me to never, ever buy this game.

    Nothing comes close to Simcity 4. Simcity 4 is Windows XP as Simcity 5 is to Windows Vista.
