    SimCity: The Best Worst Game of the Year


    Stuart98

    Sydney Morning Herald - Digital Life:

    I have a love/hate relationship with the new SimCity. In many ways it is a masterpiece of modern gaming technology, and I find it extraordinarily addictive. In other ways, it is a horribly broken piece of garbage and I hate it.

    I realise these two attitudes may seem irredeemably contradictory, so allow me to run through some of the pros and cons of this vastly entertaining train wreck of a game.

    Wow. This guy said many of the things that we are all thinking. let's send this to Maxis so they can see some player complaints and desires. If they fix/ add them, it should be as an update so people won't have to pay more for what should have come in the game. My idea (if it is feasible) is for expandable cities. Land might be able to be bought, thus expanding the city slowly (like annexation). Maxis should also display the tests that led to city sizes being limited and say if the current size is the biggest it can be without slowing down or crashing player's computers.

    MAXIS already knows all of this.  People have been shouting it all in their ears since they announced the game a year ago.  They ignore it and continue to lie about their game design, their motivations, and pretty much everything else about the game.

    Don't forget about all the patches and the buggy released game. Never saw a game with so many patches after not even a month in its release. (( And maybe they lied about the Online requirement. If I recall, I think I read an article that says it doesn't need it from one of the members... Can't remember ))

    Command & Conquer

     

    Isn't that the one that they turned into an always online Free-To-Play system?

     

    Yeah, I think I'll pass.

    i don't like Simcity 2013 so much, except for the multiplayer... i think Simcity 4 is the best simcity serial ever! Simcity 2013 graphics are so cartoonish (maybe after a lot of mod released i will like SC2013) :D
