I had heard so many great things about SimCity, this was the first time I ever got to experience the game myself, and even at the release at that. I have got to say that I was extremely disappointed with SimCity when it was released back in 2013, and I still am. It feels like they didn’t listen to the complaints at all, and completely abandoned the game when Cities: Skylines was released.
Having to log in to servers in order to actually play the game is probably one of the worst ideas I have ever heard of, I imagined myself playing this game casually at the summerhouse we rent every year, but I knew that wouldn’t be the case as I couldn’t even play the game without internet connection, something they have since then fixed (thank god)
Obviously one of the biggest disappointments is the mapsize – I loved watching people such as Yuttho build these extremely detailed roadnetworks, but what does it help if they fill up almost the entire map?
There’s some features that I really love about the game, like for instance the tourism system where they included tourist attractitions from all over the world, including Rundetårn (the Round tower) which had media hyped all over Denmark.
The multiplayer feature was nice as I got to enjoy the game with my sister from quite some time. Working together between each other to build a mega project was fun, but I was left with the feeling that these areas could have been a nice new city tile area.
