SimCity Review | AtomicGamer

AtomicGamer: "If the game worked like it should, this review would end in a score of 9. Unfortunately, we've got to review what's been released, and even after giving EA the benefit of five full days to handle things, we've decided to with what we have. The thing is,for the vast majority of the game's life, it'll run entirely as intended, which is to say that it'll work just fine (only with the odd hiccup or potential user-borne ISP or connection issue) until EA decides to shut off the servers, which they have a tendency to do in games whose player counts drop off severely. SimCity is a brilliant, accessible yet very deep game - at no point do we deny this conclusion. But for now, EA's infrastructure makes it a sometimes-broken, severely disappointing example of how good intentions with regards to DRM, monetization, and anti-piracy can backfire and create problems for gamers and publishers alike." (PC, SimCity) 7/10
