  • Needs update for new iPad Pro

    By sford56
    On my new 12.9" pro, the zoom is off, and I can't zoom out as far as with my 1st gen 12.9" iPad Pro. It makes the game much less enjoyable, as there is a lot more scrolling around.
  • Hard but Fun!!

    SimCity makes it so realistic to make your own city you want, why it's hard you ask? Well, I am just starting and those fire stations and police stations are hard. That's what makes simcity so Cool!!!

    June 2017 update - I'm super stingy with 5-star reviews, but I've finally upgraded this from 4 after nearly 3 years of quality patches. The devs care here, 100% always installed. Not sure whether this was spearheaded by Maxis or another studio within EA, but great job! Still playing after 8 months...good sign. Finally going up from 4 star to 5 star review purely because the downsides aren't enough to keep me from playing this game casually. Visuals: 9.5/10 Gameplay: 8/10 Balance (free): 7/10 Balance (paid): 3/10 Stability: 9.5/10 First, zero crashes on a 4S - never thought I'd have to mention that in a review but with all the optimization for new devices lately, devs have been lax on other games. Again, kudos guys. As for gameplay, it's simple, fun, good phone game that you can leave running in the background for days and poke your head in to "Mayor" your city every once in a while. Only 2 complaints - the costs for large police/fire/hospitals being slightly out of balance with everything else, considering how hard it is to stockpile 200,000 coins (caveat - having 315k population and collecting taxes @ 100% for a week only gives $105k). Also, the paid content and rush costs are ridiculously silly when you convert to real life $$, so laughable I don't even bother dropping money on the game. If it was more balanced or better value I'd be tempted to pump money into the game, so I guess it's a blessing disguised as a curse. Still, somewhere around L32 and enjoying new content though, so it's been nice (subjectively better than SimCity reboot too since you can play offline for up to 3 days, yay!). Also, the 1-hr discount deals I respect: considering the time invested, I decided to finally put some money in an in-app purchase because it had value and supports the game (even though I don't spend them). Last thoughts - Global Trade HQ is kinda annoying; almost everything is sold by the time we click on it. Suggestion - provide each city with 10 exclusive deals from other cities for 10 seconds before they get displayed to any other player, that way if you are constantly refreshing you have a chance to buy what you need if others are selling.
  • EA has ruined another game

    By Edog556
    I am throughly impressed by EA's business model. They make good money. They don't do anything well. They don't do want they are paid to do. Most people are dissatisfied with all of their products and yet they continue to make money and companies still continue to pay them to make games. Even with EA's history of taking good games. Ruining them. And some how they are still in business. And they have done it again with this game. Sim city is a classic and has been for years but EA has yet again ruined another game. They took away the classic zoning aspect of sim city and turned it into the bloated graphical mess that has nothing to do with sim city and isn't even remotely similar to the original nor what the creators of the game intended. Now instead of zoning everything, you build is an individual buildings. The game refers new building as zones but they don't seem to understand what a zone is. When you want to build a new residential zone, for example, instead of picking a zone and then drawing the amount of squares you want to be in that zone, then putting some power transit and roads throughout it you have to build a individual house. And not only that instead of doing what real sim city does and what every city in America does, which EA doesn't seem to understand, and just zoning then letting private developers do the actual building, you actually have to build them your self and get the materials and buy those materials with real money. Which for whatever reason EA doesn't understand how any of this works and that is that one, sim city was never and should never be like that and two, for some reason the brain trust at EA doesn't understand that the city doesn't build housing and commercial and industrial buildings. Unless we're are in a pure communist command economy. Private developers do. All the city does is zone them. That's what sim city always was, that's what made it fun figuring out how to properly zone. But EA doesn't understand how the world or sim city works so they ruined that whole zoning aspect because they don't know what zones are or what cities and city governments do. Not only is the whole non sense on how you build your zones and cities messed up by the brain trust at EA they ruined the freedom to build your city your way. Now you have to build certain factories and spend real money to build other things like houses and commercial buildings because for whatever reason EA thinks that the city mayor builds houses and if you want materials to build those houses they have to come from your city and your city only as if your city is the only place in the world. But not only that you can't build your city how you want it either. It's set up to where there is really a set way you can build it and really there is no leeway but not only that the city limits are really small so you can't do much fun. So in summation EA has ruined another game and ran the game in a way that anyone could tell you isn't fun and doesn't work in real life. They have taken all the fun out of the game. And they show they don't have a basic understanding of their own game, how it should and has worked, and how cities work in general.
