  • Really like it, but kinda annoying

    By merodr009
    Honestly, a bitter-sweet game. I really like playing the game but it’s just so HARD to make money to get everything you need, it’s crazy. It’s more of a “pay-to-play” game because in order to get ahead in the game you’ll have spend REAL money which I’m not trying to do... 🙄 for instance, you gotta get fire stations, police, education, build bigger roads, transport service, and they’re all hella expensive. Like 40,000 for the education, or 40,000 for transportation and they unlock around the same time so that’s like 80,000 you have to have. Idk, I would have rated it higher if you didn’t have to spend your own REAL money to get stuff, because that adds up lol. Oh well, I deleted it before, I wonder how long it’ll take me to get fed up and delete again lol.
  • Awesome game

    By dniqua
    I have been playing this game for almost 4 years. I like the improvements along the way. A couple things I wish would change is the omega items. We should be able to create only omega items in the research center. War items should have their own storage. Those two editions and everything would be perfect.
  • Club wars need to be changed! Huge flaw!

    By Lefx1
    Club wars have been made a big part of the game. The ability of a team to sit under shields until time runs out, completely ruins it. What’s the point of being in wars when you can’t actually compete to your potential because you know they’ll go under shields and wait it out? What’s the harm in having a time limit for shields?
  • Alright

    By SamadhiNo
    Overall this game is very good. There is one huge issue though, once you are in a club you are literally stuck in it forever. Since you cant leave clubs when there is a war going on and every club just has wars going on all the time without brakes inbetween you can just never leave ever. For instance ive been stuck in the same club for more than 4 months and ive been trying to leave but I just cant cause theres constantly a war going on. Very very very lame probably going to uninstall...
  • Just keeps getting worse

    By Jenn4y
    It’s a pay to play game. They still haven’t figured out how to save your game across devices properly. If you do a lot of work on device A then you’re out and want to play on device B, all the work you did magically disappeared. If you lose money they wont give you back more than 250 even if u lost 3,000. “Can’t prove you didn’t spend it” Hackers are still around in large force to ruin war fun. This game is just a mess and they don’t seem to care.
  • Constant prompts

    By CatRandy
    At level 4, I started getting prompts to build a beach every 2 minutes even though the minimum level to build one is level 14. I looked for a way to report this as a bug, but even finding a way to report a bug is a total run around. I would not recommend this game to my worst enemy.
  • Not the same gratification as OG SimCity

    By CJvosh
    This game is basically a click and progress game. There’s no challenge. You just click click click and progress through the game. No strategy needed. Sim city is supposed to be about strategy and requiring intelligence to progress, but this game is Extremely watered down, simplified version, meant to be generic enough For all demographics. Everything is laid out for you and you just click to progress. No decision making required. It’s basically like FarmVille, skinned to look like SimCity. The biggest complaint I have is he fact that you directly build the homes and factories, as opposed to the way sim city is supposed to work which is you hold the zones and people build the homes and business granted you provide the right environment. That is what made SimCity so amazing and realistic... they’ve lost that essence. It’s basically a glorified FarmVille. A+ to the developers though. The game is very smooth and bug free so far. The issue is with the game design
  • Thives

    By t0xygen.
    Game is frustrating to the point of strangling your phone.
  • Bad Sync

    By ryuucat
    I’ve played for an hour in my iPad and few hours later comeback to update in iPhone, so shocking to find all the changes I’ve made before is never get updated. Lost my 1 hour playing data, i I decided to stop playing this at all.
  • Emphasis on War Games has ruined SimCity for me

    By 3wilddogs
    Game is fantastic if you want to design and build your own city with a huge variety of objects to pick from. But the focus on War Games has ruined my enjoyment of the game - you don’t even have a chance to do well in the Contest of Mayors anymore unless you engage in War Games. There are lots of war game apps out there, I don’t see why this was incorporated into SimCity. You also used to see a lot more rotation of sellers in the Global Trade HQ, but now it’s very unlikely you’ll find what you are looking to buy. Disappointed.
