I didn't feel like wading through 63 pages of this topic. Has the game gotten any better since launch? It looks like Amazon has it on sale (both digital and physical) for $39.99 that would be within my price range if the game is in better shape than it was at launch.

It should be avoided on principle.

It is improved in a lot of ways, and has regressed a little in some other ways.

For all its bugs, it's still enjoyable :)

I bought it at $40. Played the s*** out of it for a week, then realized there wasn't anything more than that.

I've already moved on.

And I never had any problems getting it to work, I guess my playstyle led me to not having too much traffic or any problems like that. The game just felt shallow, and like a simulation that gets boring. Not a game.

I don't mind disasters (although I'd prefer not to have them) but I really object to getting pummeled >.>

Starting to feel like Stockholm Syndrome >.>

Same disaster i had happening way too often. Tornado's happen too, but they were alright.
the thing that made me hate the meteors is the radiation they left behind. which never goes away.


I keep getting meteors hit the same spot in my city over and over.

I gave up trying to find a server with people in it that wasn't full.

I had a zombie outbreak, but it doesn't let me do it myself. Why is that?
