Marines replied to Zpike's topic in SimCity (2013) General DiscussionFirst post and all. I recently purchased SC4 via Steam. I hadn't played it in years and decided to give it a go again. I'm really enjoying it. That said, I don't foresee this iteration being a success at all for a variety of reasons. After reading the posts over at the EA forums I canceled my pre-order, and I'm glad I did. The maps are small, the visuals overtly cartoonish, the DRM scheme a no go, and the forced social/online component is not warranted in a game like this. What I find truely ridiculous is that so many people keep pointing to the Maxis statement on modding, that it'll somehow vastly improve and or save the game. Yeah well, good luck with that. Not only have they been absolutely vague on how and what can be modded, but does anyone actually think they'll allow anything into the game (via modders) that will hamper DLC sales? I think not. I'm passing on this iteration in the series, and from what I can tell, so are a great many others.
