From the article, "SimCity has become an interesting game recently. It’s a game that was reviewed positively by a number of outlets with scores ranging in the 9s and 10s. Its current Metacritic scores are 82% by critics and 1.8 by users. Seeing the two scores could make a person think the two groups are playing two different games. They wouldn’t be completely wrong either thanks to the choice by Electronics Arts and Maxis to use the controversial “Always Online DRM” for the popular simulation game."
