It would be an easy job to presume what direction this review will head to. So much has been the hype around the first week of launch for SimCity that even if you’d want to avoid it by choice, I doubt you seldom would. The SimCity launch has been plagued by the inclusion of an always-online DRM system, something that has been a controversial hot-topic since long. The DRM-always-connected issue is one thing, the game was also utterly broken during launch day, with redundant mechanics, players not able to join games, players losing their cities completely, long server wait-times etc. It has been 11 days since SimCity’s release now, and Maxis/EA have hurried rectifications to the broken city-builder experience, to make it a somewhat better experience, if not a perfect one.
