  • Ruined Sim City, yet again.

    By X-Trade
    The first few minutes were quite enjoyable, the ability to change camera angle and zoom is a great improvement over previous games. My session quickly turned to frustration though as I realised the game deliberately makes you wait minutes at a time with building limits and the supply store mechanic, all just to try to get you to spend real world currency.
  • Can't open app since last update!

    By Jj services
    Have managed to open the app once since the last update. My iPad isn't old and am up to date with iso updates. Have played every day for of a year and now all gone!! Shame! I have spent time and money on this and now I can't even get into it!!!! Seems to be a common theme...
  • Spend a lot get very little

    By AntAscii
    Expect to spend a lot of money on this game if you want play it to it’s fullest. Some buildings are expensive (you spend real money) and you get no refund if u demolish them!!
  • No wars

    By Classicalnerdsunite
    This used to be a good game! Now with club wars it is just like any other war game, all about destruction. I want to build but now in the Mayor contest I have to go to war to get some points! You have ruined a very good game.
  • War update ruins it

    By Goshdarnit
    This game was great until the latest update. It was exactly what a sim city game should be. But this update has ruined the fun. I’m just constantly being attacked and having to waste so much time building things to repair the damage. If you’re in a club you have no way of avoiding this. Of course you could leave the club but then you miss out on the social side with club challenges and seasons. This has broken what was a fun city building game and turned it into a very lame version of boom beach.
  • Once my favourite app now the worst

    By anotherordinaryuser
    This app was a joy to play and collaborate with other users. The introduction of war seemed like fun but in reality opened up huge political divides between players, especially pacifists. I was so distressed by the infighting that I refused to remain as a club member of a mayors club. I discovered the app refused to let me resign from a club, resulting in me deleting the entire app, that’s wasting time, money and effort on the whole thing. EA should be ashamed of taking a game that focused on citizen happiness and turning it into a war game. I urge people who are against war to delete the app and ask for a full refund of in app purchases.
  • Loss of coins when upgrading buildings

    By Sb maxwells

  • Good but would be better if it wasn’t rigged

    By KetchupRob
    Now you might think I’m being paranoid when I say it’s rigged, but it’s the truth. Got 4.5m people and have been playing for 5 years. The problem is that things are always most scarce when you need items for upgrades or deliveries. I get that the developers want to make money off the game, but it is almost too obvious that it’s screwing you. Items that are normally abundant, like light bulbs or tables or chairs, become impossible to find in the global market due to what I can only assume is coding within the game to stop you finding these items in the market. So you expand your warehouse as much as possible, stock up on all the least common items and start a building upgrade or an Epic project, what happens, the items you have the least of are required. This is less of an issue at the start of an epic project because you have multiple options to trade for epic points, but the closer you get to a golden cog, the more it asks for items you dont have. I dont mean a variety of items you may have run out of, I mean it selects items which take the longest time to create, and it doesn’t just ask for that item once, it asks for it multiple times. In one project, I had about 5 different tasks all asking for Garden furniture. Then you have these new adverts to watch in return for bonus items, and guess what, the sim money or gold keys almost always seem to be in crates you dont choose. I did an experiment for a 2 week period, each time I chose the middle crate and without fail, the simcash or key was in the crate on the right. At the end of the 2 weeks, I then chose the crate on the right and amazingly the simcash was in the middle crate. I think it does 5 adverts a day and after 14 days I had opened 70 crates, so it was more than enough to spot a pattern. I like the game, I have given it 4 stars, but that is only because I have spent very little real money trying to buy my way through the game and because there are some cool things in it. I just wish it was not so blatantly obvious that it was rigged.
  • Sim city crash

    By selsdon ll
    Since sim wars loaded iPad crashes when game loaded!
  • A total waste of time and effort

    By Danthut
    Been playing this game on and off for a long time had no issues what so ever, BUT! Since this new update I get kicked off every 2 to 3 mins, majority of the time as I go to purchase an item I really need. It also kicks me out or freezes when I play the videos.... There is nothing wrong with the device I use to play on as the only thing on it is this dam game so that is not the issue. Sent an email to support still waiting on a reply. Shame I can not give a zero star rating......GET IT SORTED.
