  • Not a True Simcity

    By Shufei
    I miss Simcity. I mean the real Simcity, where you play an actual game which is focussed on government, development, and finance. This is not Simcity. It's just another freemium scam and coin farming tapper. It is exceedingly well crafted, that much I grant. It is finished and polished with all the Sim themes. That gets it a star. But this is not Simcity. Not even close. I don't get hooked on coin farming. Sorry, it is just plain unfun. And worse, it is a kind of digital drug, vapid and manipulative, which revolts me on principle. This app plays every such cynical move. I still have Simcity Deluxe. Until iOS 11 is mandatory, I'll keep playing that. I paid cash money for that game. And I'd pay money for another Simcity game of equal or greater caliber. This is not it. So sad what has happened to the Simcity line. It used to reliably provide intellectual sandbox fun for countless hours. Lately, since Simcity 4, the devs just want to insult our intelligence. Judging by the reviews here, for many it is working... A shame.
  • People cheat in season leagues

    By Clash of ash
    I've been up 10,000 points which is atleast 5 challenges needed to get caught up to me when people passed me with 5 minutes to go which is impossible. People have 120,000 when that's impossible. People found ways to cheat so I deleted this app
  • Fix videos

    By Mollymaschefzky
    Every time the video bubble pops up I click on it but it never loads. I just get a black screen and then I have to restart the whole app.
  • amazing game, addicted!

    By Alphabetchicken
    I just downloaded this game like 2 days ago, and I am so addicted. Some changed I would really like to see is: being able to see actual crimes taking place / actual fires starting even when there is coverage on the building. Also, I would like to see emergency vehicles being able to run through red lights where going to an emergency. love this game!
  • LOVE IT!! ... Just wish it was the Land pieces were available to produce in the factories

  • Getting better

    By Wolffman22
    EA has made this game infinitely better. There are still some bugs but easily dismissed. I have played this now for 3+ years and lose myself in playing the game. A couple of items that could benefit.... I would like to trade directly with members of my club only. It would be great if I could see my items in storage while browsing other cities. I would like to buy/sell all items in both storage units. I would like to be able to sell qty 10 items again instead of qty 5. EA should never have changed this.
  • Instantly hated it

    By Long_Haired_Artist
    Player is locked into a mandatory demonstration to start the game with annoying pop up characters audibly speaking in baby talk that are supposed to compel you to 1. build a road 2. build a house 3. build power plant 4. water plant 5. factory etc etc All initial decision making is removed. That’s the freaking point of a simulator. What convinced me to quit the game after the pop up people stopped their barrage of interruptions- no ability to raze what they forced me to build. You cannot control or randomize the starting map. Basically this is a production game where you are forced to optimize to an unscientific game ideal, and your decorating options are limited to what are surely in game purchases. If you had hoped to see an improvement on the original SimCity, you will be angry at this sad mockery.
  • Good I like it

    By Huntm@n1
  • Fun until.... Lvl 20 then you run out of room.

    By gator416609
    Have had this game for over a year, still have a bunch of the special buildings, Halloween, Christmas, Empire State Building, opera, expo center, ballon rides, 2016 New Years ball at my entrance. I had lots of fun for the first 20 levels. It was hard but I kept playing. It's been almost a year of not playing. I had stopped playing in hopes that some things would get easier. I have expanded to the point of needing 30 special pieces, for each. I need 7 expansions, 210 special pieces I have not found them in the auction, rarely pop up from my population, I'm to the point where I WOULD need pay to expand and play further. I could buy them, but hey they are just to expensive. I have and do use cash on some of these games, but when you figure the math, it's not worth it. Same reason I don't invest in other EA sponsored games, like the NFL. I just stop playing. I understand these things cost money. I could justify a couple bucks to expand a tile, but $10 to expand ONE TILE, or $70 dollars to expand all 7, it's Just not worth it. Have fun while you can, it will take up a bunch of your time, you also will probably say "oh well"
