official SimCity (2013)

Couldn't EA have avoided a lot of the download issues if they had preloaded? Why didn't they do this? Seems like such a logical solution to avoiding servers being hammered the same day people are going to want to play. DOH! :pinch:

Is the game worth buying today or should I wait? I'm a massive fan of the game, but with constant online only, that bugs me.

I'd check out the reviews on Amazon.com before splashing the cash.

Virtually everybody is giving this 1 star. Lots of complaints.

I was really looking forward to this. After reading some reviews, this thread and talking to people..... I think I'll give it a miss :(

This game looks much more interesting:

OOF! Youch. That hurts. Thanks for the heads up. I was looking forward to this game. And the cities are that small? Wow... stunned.

not really cause it wasn't the download that was the actual issue (it only downloads a 300-ish mb launcher then the rest in stream downloaded.) it was the billing and authorization servers not pre-assigning the serials before the launch and they freaked out once midnight hit...

I didn't have that issue (was in both test runs) - I'm waiting because I'm buying the regular retail version and paying cash (also buying local, likely Best Buy).

People carpetbomb Amazon reviews because of the company and the DRM, not the game. They've been doing it since limited activations became a thing.

I'd give it a solid 85%. I don't think the city/region/whichever sizes are bad, but they still should be bigger. The region play makes it a lot more interesting (I've had plenty of arsonists and things visit from other peoples stuff heh :) )

I'll be playing for quite a while I imagine.

Been seriously contemplating wether I should get the game or not, but hearing about all the bugs and annoyances I've decided to hold off at least until the Mac version comes out. Hopefully by then we're also able to build cities with more than 300k population...

When playing, the game keep on saying that the SimCity servers are down!!! LOL... Imagine when everybody else join the party....

The size of the "town" are small, that's something that bugs me...

What's up with this game? My city is really small. I think the "practice" city on the Super Nintendo version of Sim City was bigger than this. How do I get to the full size city maps with population over 250k?

I find that a little strange, as I seriously haven't had any bugs or annoyances outside of the server outage.

That's it. :)

Not to worry, Sim City 6 incoming:

Two times started a city and after 10-20 mins the game crashed and lost everything. :angry:

We need a Neowin Region.

Maybe we can combine 20 of our cities in a region and have something decent in size.

Look back a few years, now look at today. We have 'pirates' to thank for that, and EA of course ;)

I played both the beta's and enjoyed them. Got my pre-order from Amazon today. Got home from work, installed and yup, can't even get past the tutorial as it loads but just sits there. now i went through the tutorial in beta so i know what its going to have me do but i can't click on anything. All the North America servers are busy. This is a load of crap. Guess i'll go back to my Far Cry 3 game. Epic fail EA. And for them to say they were "stress testing" their servers during the beta. What a joke!

I had a feeling this was going to happen. But man i want to play this game!
