SimCity 2013

Well, the long-awaited new version is out and reviews have been mixed.

While the game itself has rated okay (a huge advance or not quite as good as past versions, depending on who you read) the DRM, demand for online play, wonky servers and installment plan which could see the cost for the whole game reach $470 (according to one source) have all been roundly panned.

Re: SimCity 2013

I have ordered this game, but a price-saving decision means I'm still waiting for it to arrive

It's a pity that the launch was so bad, but the game is really good! (I played the first two betas). I am really interested to see what additions they bring out for this game, and hope that these initial hiccups harm the future of the game.

Edit: I really hate people calling the game SimCity 2013. The game's just called SimCity. If any distinction is required, then 2013 should be in parentheses.

Re: SimCity 2013

I was considering buying the game but won't because of the onerous DRM.
