Personally I think this looks unbelievably exciting. I played Sim City and Sim City 2000 to death back in the day and have been waiting patiently for a proper update, and this looks like it. I can see me wasting hours just watching my Sims wander around my city.

The always online thing (if it is indeed literally every-second) doesn't both me at all, I wouldn't play this on anything other than my PC and that's got a rock solid Internet connection. Plus, as long as they genuinely add something with it (even if the primary reason is DRM) then I only benefit from it. I get why it would be an issue for many people, it just doesn't affect me personally.

I was expecting to be disappointed by this game before they started releasing videos. So far the only thing I am worried about is the fact that it forces you to connect to other people's cities. Who knows what kind of crazy things your neighbor cities will do? That makes it difficult (impossible?) to build what you want to build.

As Nikumba said. Shame on you for not pointing this huge flaw out. (Yes, every time you report on it)

I think they said that there'd be a single player component (like SimCity 4, where you can build lots of connected cities). Didn't say that it wouldn't require an internet connection though (chances are it will).

Looks good, but still no Steam no purchase.

"....Looks awful." is a judgement.

Don't believe you are forced into multi-player mearly that it requires an always online connection.

As long as this is more like Sim City 4 than Sim City Societies, then I'll be buying. Not at Origin prices of course...

Looks awesome. . . but if EA have anything to do with it, chances are it will be a hyped up load of s**t

Indeed it's like EA have a QA team that takes the completed games from their developers and randomly attaches **** elements to it

"...each car on the road is a properly simulated agent...." This sort of attention to detail is exactly what I'm looking for in a city simulator - if it's decent then it'll be my first game since CivIV.

Only on that video. Must I specify further to avoid potential comments about it only being a beta build ect? I also added that looks aren't everything. I well know a game can be good without them. Pardon me for forgetting that the internets pick up on everything..

Wonder if you will be able to start gang warfare with neighbouring cities online.

It seems various people missed the bit in the first video where it tells you they are not final graphics, in essence they are working graphics.

lol @ those who think the game is on it's final graphics.
lol @ those who think the mechanics became dumber.
lol @ those who "can't play online" on their PC... As if!
lol @ all those drama queens...

I don't care what you stupid haters think, SimCity is mine! :D
