Did you get a physical copy? And did you use the dvd to install it? If this is the case, open origin, uninstall Simcity, re install it this time you use origin to download it. This fixed the same issue for me atleast.
Anyone else have this wierd bugged where the mission trackers only display code and not what it's tracking. The text is also overlayed by buttons etc. I'll Edit this post with a picture as soon as I get back in...
