I'm not sure why everyone was expecting SimCity 4
but in 3D. That was never going to happen, considering SimCity 4
sold below expectations and the brand hasn't been touched in several years.
I'm actually really enjoying it; the small city size makes the game more difficult, and the social element for playing with friends in sandbox mode is really
fun. Really, the worst part about the whole affair is Origin's servers being a steaming pile of shit.
