Product Details:

SimCity is a dynamic, living, visually engaging world unlike anything you've ever seen before! Build the city of your dreams and watch as the choices you make shape your city and change the lives of the Sims within it. As a true city simulator, you will see that very decision, big or small, right or wrong, has real consequences for your Sims. Invest in heavy industry and your economy will soar - but at the expense of your Sims' health as pollution spreads. Implement green technology and improve your Sims' lives but risk higher taxes and unemployment. In SimCity, you're the Mayor, and you can do what you want! For the first time, SimCity will feature Multicity where you can go solo, invite friends or join with neighbors to build multiple cities in your region! Collaborate or complete with friends to grow the fastest population, create the most jobs, educate the most Sims and much more! Access SimCity World to connect to global markets and participate in regional challenges!

  • Constructible Worlds - Be part of a creative and customizable world that you can manipulate and tinker with ease.
  • Sims Matter - The Sims in your city speak to you directly and it's up to you to respond to their needs. Will you listen and be the toast of the town? Or abuse your power for fame and fortune?
  • Specialize in What You Love - Mold your city as a casino resort, manufacturing hub, educational enclave, and more, and then watch as a unique look and feel spread throughout your city.
  • Multicity - Build a region of cities with friends for the first time! Share resources and work together to construct huge projects such as the International Airport!
  • GlassBox Engine - SimCity introduces GlassBox, the revolutionary simulation technology that gives you the power to impact individual Sims lives, manage city level simulation, and balance multiple city simulations at once.
  • The new Single-Player Mode allows you to play SimCity anytime, anywhere, without the need of an active Internet connection.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME I was so exited for this game, ever since I had sim city 4 I wanted a great predecessor which EA tried to do on the DS but do to a lack of processing power fell short for me. Then I heard around New years that there would be another Sim City and it was better than the original, it was getting game of the year honours from everyone, so i thought well if it is getting these awards it must be good. I pre ordered it and downloaded it to play but the servers weren't ready and there was no offline mode to begin with, so i waited and waited for about a week for them to come up. When they did it was a total disappointment, First you can't customize the region, Second the city sizes are a lot smaller, and lastly money goes away to fast when your mayor the only way you can make money are casinos. So overall very disappointed in EA and for the old sim city 4 fans stay away from this game it will tarnish your opinion of the original.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game This game received a lot of bad publicity at the begging but now it is a great game well worth the money. I have played SimCity since the first release named SimCity. This game holds true to the games legacy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Deepest thoughts Great Graphics for a beefy computer, Splendid Music and sounds.Smooth graphics. I love started my cities from dust roads to High density from Trailers to Skyscraper. From Not-so green to green. I find this game fun for the family at ANY Age. So sit back and enjoy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sim City DRM edtion Ok. Guys. I have always enjoyed PC gaming & Simaltion. I was looking forward to this game. This game has nice graphics and simaltion. It is buggy but not as bad as when it first come out. I like the birds flying buy and seeing your Sims run around your city also the game play can be fun. But u can't change the land scape like in past games. The online play is hit or miss deapending on if ur playing with some one cool or some one who just don't care. and your towns are much smaller now. I Love Sim City 2000 and Sim City for the SuperNintendo but this always on DRM and other things make this game feel dishonorible and like a low to the serise its a real shame cuz the game had lots of protencal. And it's even very impressive in some ways but in it curent sate I can't recomended. # DRM Must STOP!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great game When the game initially launched, everyone including me were mad about the servers always being full, and how the A.I.'s have been acting pretty stupid. The cities were small, the creators made way too many dlc's and made the game look bad. However, the creators did manage to fix many of their mistakes such as increasing server capacity and creating new servers, fixing the A.I.'s as much as they could, and start pushing to make the game better. A lot of people still ask for bigger maps, and I hope Maxis will be able to actually listen to us, and make the maps bigger, so that the game is much more fun. Now I'm very interested in the new "Cities of Tomorrow" expansion pack and looking forward to playing it. If the creators are reading this, we are begging for bigger maps and a little more tweaking with the online mode. Other then that, I would recommend anyone who is reading this, to buy this game now, and start building your dream city!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Thanks Never EVER EVER EVER EVER will I buy a game that requires online access to enjoy... Ive been a Sim City fan forever n while I enjoy the OPTION of online play, being forced to find a connection wherever I am on my laptop is unacceptable... I do like to occasionally play games on my PC or PS3 with people online or sitting in the same room, but usually i prefer playing these kinds of games solo... great time killer... so I guess im stickin with my Sim City 4... better luck next time

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the best simcity yet. A good game that's very fun, I don't know why so many people hate it. If you like strategy, then get this game. its a little hard though.
