  1. The Good & Bad
    by dfox2014, USA - Dec 13th 2016

    Giving the good first, this game is everything SimCity wasn't. Not the old classic SimCity but the newer attempt at it. This game has an amazing Steam community and a constantly growing DLC market for official and community releases. I can't express how much fun I have with this game. It never gets old, and is ENDLESSLY replayable.
    The bad however ruined it for me... for now. I have a mid-2012 MacBook Pro and although I understand the age factor and the fact that I own a laptop (a fully suited up one though) this game still drags in performance, consumes all of my computers resources, and runs a very spotty fps.
    But on a more dedicated machine, this game is one of the best you can buy.

  2. Build it and they will come
    by andregurov, USA - Nov 27th 2016

    Talk about a time sink! You can build anything from fantasy worlds to a recreation of your hometown, and then unleash hell upon it just for giggles. A near-perfect game that you can actively shape in the direction you want to go in.
