This cheap SimCity deal is probably the most competitive price we've seen for Maxis' city builder. What was horrible and broken at launch is now fit for human consumption, especially seeing as it costs a mere £5.99 from 365 Games, which is the cheapest we've seen yet.
A year and a half has passed since Carl's 5/10 SimCity review, and the situation is very different now. The broken aspects of the simulation have been fixed -- thankfully no more kidnapping school buses to worry about! -- while the offline mode finally lets us play the game on our own terms. It's rather enjoyable and addictive. However, it's worth noting that the restrictive city sizes still mean that we can't create our own perfect metropolises... metropoli... cities without running into a wall. SimCity 4 is still a vastly superior game, but for £5.99, I think we can give SimCity one thumb up. Thanks to Jet23 at HUKD!
