Puts Most City Simulators To Shame!
SimCity is truly one of a kind. The premise is simple; be the mayor of a metropolis. Buuuuuuuut... you have to build it from the ground up. That's all fine and dandy with me. Some people get frustrated when they don't have enough currency (money) to buy that service they need (honestly, I had to reinstall the game once until I finally figured out the trick). If you explore the game (or just go into the menu where your services and other things are), you'll find the levels to unlock everything (if you haven't yet). A trick to getting more services faster: collect Simoleons! You can get that stuff from the City Hall, Trade Depot (8000 sims to unlock), and various other things. There's only one way to level up; upgrade your residential zones. Before you level up that zone, look and see what you unlock in the next level. If a service will be unlocked, you should save up some Simoleons. This game seems complicated, but you'll get it in time. EA always impresses me (Need For Speed, PGA, just to name a couple of my favorites), and SimCity is a true gem in my eyes. (By the way, this is probably my longest review yet.) Keep being awesome, SimCity!!
Bigger isn't always better!
So far... I love this game. To be fair, I've only leveled to 13 but that is part of my strategy. As you level through the game(by building/upgrading more and more residential buildings) it challenges you by unlocking new services which your denizens then demand that you provide for them. By controlling how quickly, or slowly I advance through the levels I can control what my denizens are demanding from their Mayor. This strategy is working great for me, and the game is tons of fun. A downfall of this play-style is that it is very difficult to obtain keys to buy some of the more interesting and diverse services for my city. I would love it if EA would find a way to reward the Mayors who choose to control or even limit their city's growth. Perhaps a progressive reward system that isn't so largely based on having increasingly massive populations. Having a smaller number of incredibly happy sims should be more (or at least equally) rewarding as having enormous populations that are disgusted with their Mayor. So until EA comes out with a "Bigger isn't always better" update, I'll rate this game as 4 out of 5 stars.
Your city quickly outpaces your own level; chaos reigns in the city.
In order to progress in the game, you need to build structures to produce materials, however, all of these buildings cost exorbitant amounts of simolions. How do you earn more simolions? By upgrading other buildings with the materials you can't create because you can't afford to build the structures where they're made. Now, if you leveled up slowly, that would be one thing, but you gain XP a lot faster than you can sufficient spending money, and with each level a new "required" building is introduced...which means your citizens just hang out, unhappy that they're missing out, not only on service X, but they're ALSO now missing out on services Y&Z, which lowers your popularity as a mayor, which means you get even less $ from taxes (if only real life taxation was tied to citizens' life satisfaction.......) so it takes even longer to build the required buildings and so your citizens get even unhappier...are you seeing the pattern? There isn't even an efficient way to BUY the $ you need, so even if I wanted to throw money at the game, it wouldn't quicken my progress. In sort, it's one of the worst paced sim games I've ever played. I doubt it will stick around on my phone long.
