I was invited for an open beta test, but I couldn't even figure out how to download the demo and play it so fuck it.
As soon as i heard that you have to be online (WTF?!?!) I gave up on the game. Maybe in a few years they will get Wil Wright back and Make a true and proper SimCity 5.
I'll take my SC2000 and 3000 anyway to the over useless additions of 4 and this dumb new one without a number.
Four is the best Sim City Game in the franchise, it still looks good by even today's standards and with Rush Hour and NAM building large, interconnected, cities in a region is incredibly satisfying and fun.
