Even though I expected to be issues on day one of this game release, mostly I expected trouble joining servers, I didn't expect to run into the bugs I encountered in the short time I played the game.
The first bug right off the bat was not being able to play the tutorial city. The game showed "a cannot load city" error when i tried to start. It took about 5 or 6 tries to get to work and I suspect it was server related. Not surprising but I was still annoyed by it. The next bug occurred when I started my first city in a new region. The ability to zoom and rotate was not functioning for some reason. I was still able to build, but I could not zoom or rotate the city. The problem was resolved when I exited the city and reloaded it. Not a big deal but still strange none the less. And the last and most irritating bug for me right now is not being able to invite people on my friends list into a private region. I'm currently getting a "invite can't be sent at this time" error. Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this right now.
Outside these issues, the gameplay is definitely interesting and I'm planning to try some old building strategies I used in the older SimCity games and see how they fare. I know adjustments will have to be made, but it's still nice to play a SimCity game again.
