EA have just lied about everything with this game.

One likens it to Spore.

Zones are meaningless. Sims have no fixed house or job (they flow like water to the nearest open slot), regions don't contribute to others - it's totally faked. They don't send you resources but you'll be told they have.
have you personally checked any of this? maybe it's only anti-ea internet trolls spewing bullshit? or maybe those are bugs and will be fixed? because if the above is actually true it's a fucking outrage.
Yeah I have checked it. It's quite easy to do the tests yourself cause the system is so flawed. Eg police and ambulance travel to the nearest fire or crime in progress and ignore all others til the first is dealt with. You can have an entire station move to fight the one fire/crime with a dozen others in progress.


@ bennis, test it yourself. Make a private region without any other players and make it residential only. See what happens.

I dunno, mine always complain about shopping or not enough shoppers. Meh I'm just having fun building cities, the little things like that aren't exactly a game killer

Youre missing the point bennis.  There shouldnt be any people if they have nowhere to work.  That is a game breaking mistake/outrageous act of deception

I don't know how you think I am somehow making this up. There are countless examples of youtube of the same



Build nothing but residential and the basics for water/electricity. Your sims don't leave town because of sewerage, no jobs, no police, no firefighters, no health.

You'll actually get high rise apartments going up.

Holy mother of god.  That video

lol at where he says "who would move here?"  That legitimately looks like a city in war-torn Syria. 

Thank you for posting that.  I was kind of leaning towards maybe waiting for a few months for them to fix it.  Maybe.  But now, no way in fuckin hell.  No.  Fuckin.  Way.  Have those EA fuckers lost their minds or something?  What in the name of god is this shit?

Lol I'm not accusing you of making it up. I'm just saying I haven't been seeing the same thing. My Sims are always complaining about not having mg enough jobs, or not being enough workers.

Watching that video that you posted, seems lots of sims do leave (hence all the abandoned buildings), but that there is always an inflow of residents to settle. Weird

When I first heard of this shit I thought "oh hey, I should've bought Simcity, then I would've gotten a free copy of dead space 3"

Then I realized :  They're giving you until the 26th to register.  This is a ploy to get people to buy 2 games for the price of one.

You have all been duped.

I read this yesterday: http://www.shacknews.com/article/78248/ … in-simcity

Pay note to this bit:

Bradshaw says that "We recognize that there are fans--people who love the original SimCity – who want [an offline mode.]" But, apparently that audience is moot because there are "thousands of people who are playing across regions, trading, communicating and loving the Always-Connected functionality."
So if you voice your dislike for something, yet still play it, they completely disregard your opinion, it seems.

That said, my friends have this and seem to be enjoying it. I just don't wanna pay anything near £40 for it.

It is fun, but definitely watered down from SC4 unfortunately
