Sigh. I buy this game along with 2 more GB of ram for the computer and new video card, get everything installed and set up only to find out the servers are crap and I can't play.
I'd already had my reservations on this game, the smaller lot sizes, the "always on" connection. Now this just bites it.
Should have bought Tomb Raider instead.
Really Sim City 4 with Rush Hour plus some other little things (like NAM) was a damn-near perfect Sim City game.
