SimCity Review - Dusty Cartridge

Alex from DC writes: That general feeling of growing something from nothing is echoed in the latest sequel of what is undoubtedly one of EA and Maxis’ longest running, most intensely beloved franchises. On closer inspection, however, all isn’t as it should be when you realise the city you’ve built is a crumbling house of cards built with inane AI and extremely poor mechanics and riddled with DRM. (PC, SimCity) 2/10

Every person, and publication, has a right to score reviews any manner they see fit. However, I personally felt this was more of a statement of the author's abhorrence of DRM than anything else. In fairness to him, he did raise more negative points than just the always online handicap, but quite honestly SimCity as it is now is simply not a 2/10 in any realm of reason. A score that bad is for a game with no real positives that barely manages to function - to me at least. Reviews are not purely objective, but there should be a fairness given at the same time.

If you've ever played a truly horrific game, then you would know a difference between it and SimCity. As a reader, and nothing else, I'd advise the reviewer to not let his review be a personal vendetta or statement against a game, idea, practice or company. Tell the readers the good and the bad and judge it accordingly. However, in the end, its still the writers opinion...

I just think he should be more thoughtful with his opinion.

Yup. While I can understand disliking this stuff, editorials are for things like that. DRM might not be enjoyable or a selling point, but it shouldn't affect the score unless you lack internet, which automatically makes it a zero.
