LOL.


I personally love the screen that tells you that you have to wait for half a day to play it, despite you wanting to play single player. Such high resolution.


1.7 rating, out of 3059 user reviews.

EA's PR campaign is enough fun for me.

So how about that Simcity 4 with the bigger cities with offline single-player and citizens that actually have a home instead of going to the first empty house?

I'm stunned at the amount of low score user reviews this game has gotten. Logically, you can't score a game that you haven't played and as far as I know, nobody has managed to play it yet.

The funny part is where I thought nothing would fail harder and faster than SW:TOR.

Oh was I wrong.

A game being unplayable factors heavily into scoring.

People gave it a 1 because it was utterly broken upon launch, thus a terrible game. (Unplayable, queue's, bugs, crashes to desktop and so forth) A core singleplayer game that has been forced into Multiplayer, which is so horribly broken that they need to remove features in order to make it work slightly less bad. :>

Can't really blame them, predicted it and haven't gotten it because of it. EA ruined it.

Tbh, I'm more stunned by the 'Critic' reviews; The big names sucking up to EA and giving it high scores to reduce the damage dealt. *Shrug* I just hope people will stop buying EA games now till they get their stuff together.

Edit; Rensin beat me to it.

Gotta be a good doggie or they'll pull the advertisements and early looks.

Edit: Also, thirty minute timer instead of an actual queue. No AI. No big lots. Possibility of offline single player taken out early. I wish EA would stop making me hate their games so I can stop being 'that one guy who probably hates video games'.

I'm the guy among my friends that gets known as "The one that likes obscure indy games". When really... I just like functional non-intrusive software...

I know, I was just joking.

Anyways, you really can't trust any reviews these times except your own. Critic reviews are bought and user reviews are in most cases written by people who have no idea what the hell they're talking about or by the devs themselves.

Personally, I'll just wait for it to be cracked, because it will. Then the people who pirated the game will be the ones who can actually play it.

It's fun, a dude who works at Maxis said himself that EA's decision to have the game constantly hooked up to servers was very odd, because the servers really do nothing. He said that they maintain cloud data and some other loose stuff, but nothing that really has impact on gameplay. The reason they're all breaking down is because the servers they have for it are just.... Bad.

I think these two GIFs describe the situation quite good.
