Has its short comings

This is a game that can be fun and addictive. The one thing they never tell you is when you start you need to save all expansion materials. The only way you can get expansion materials is from them (or buy them on the global market and people aren't going to sell what's hard to get) and they are very tight about giving those materials. The other problem is the global market. If you are looking for specific items, you have to click an icon then look at the materials that city is selling then click back if they don't have what you want and click on another icon and so on. You could spend a whole night doing nothing but clicking back-and-forth. If they wanted to be nicer to their customers, they would list out all of possible materials that you can buy. It is such a waste of time and frustrating that you just want to quit. The same problem occurs with the Omega storage. You never have the right items to expand and the only way to get those is to build them, but you don't have a lot of storage and no way to sell a few items off. It can become an addictive game, but they make it difficult to advance sometimes. I've been waiting for a month to get engines to expand, but I only get the other two required items. And no one is selling engines, probably because they can get them either!

Too slow

It's a fun game at first. The problem is that there is no way to earn enough money to keep building the city. Thousands when you buy, often just tens when you sell or collect. Even if you threw real money at it, you couldn't realistically buy enough to make much difference. The game has a number of bottlenecks. There is no search function for items, so you can waste a lot of time just clicking around, hoping to find what you want. I choose not to do many things because it is so hard to expand. It is just not worth the hassle. A game should not be a hassle.

The game quickly becomes more stressful than fun. If I wanted citizens nagging me about every little thing -- You are so mad you're going to move because you have to drive an extra block to the health clinic? Give me a break! -- I'd go back into government. Every neighborhood needs a police station, a fire station, a school, a park and a health facility. Deluxe, eh, but the income is pauper level. Where is the fun?

Make it easier to earn Simoleans or cheaper to buy essential stuff. Set things up so that leveling up is not an event to be feared and avoided. Also, in the marketplace we should be able to trade items, not just sell for cash. We should be able to search for items, not just wait for a random sampling of what is available.

It's a great game but takes a long time...

I love this game, I really do, but it's incredibly difficult. There's so much going on all the time that it gets hard to keep track of what you're doing and what you need to do next. I'm at a point where I can do disasters, but I also have goals to build and expand my mountain, beach, building both London and Paris houses, and trying to expand my own land because I've run out of space to build on. Not to mention all of the it ms needed for expansions and disasters are almost impossible to come by. People are rarely selling the, (understandably so) and I haven't gotten a single thing from my city folk in days, so zero items to expand my land, mountain, beach, storage... At the same time I'm trying to make stuff for my boats and airplanes to build up my Paris and London items and earn keys, but that's getting tough because I can't expand my storage to hold items to build these things without using real world money. Not only that, but half the time, okay maybe more than half I'm not getting the item I need to complete a build for a Paris or London house. There's no balance here. You basically have to spend money on this game once you get to a certain point.
