Terrible, terrible attempt at merging The Sims and SimCity. This game is atrocious, and does not deserve the SimCity name. It bears nothing in common with any other SimCity game, its predecessor, SimCity 4 is superior in every single way. This game is retardedly easy and focuses not on building your city, but playing with some broken system of social energies.
I could go into more depth, but I would much rather let the metacritic score of 62 speak for itself. Avoid this game like the plague, unless you want to send EA the message that a watered down disgrace of a game is what fans want.
