Posted on March 5, 2013, Ross Lincoln Where Is GameFront’s SimCity Review?
Everyone knows by now that EA’s long awaited resumption of the SimCity franchise launches today. Whether you’re blown away by the powerful glassbox engine or roundly disturbed by the fact that it requires persistent Internet access and has no single player option, if you’re a fan of the series from way back you’re no doubt dying to know whether or not the thing is actually good.
We’d love to be able to tell you right now, but alas, Game Front was provided with review codes that only unlocked at midnight. Normally, we might blast through a single game to get a review up as quickly as possible, but given the enormous size of the game and the built-in controversial features, not to mention the fact that it’s been nearly 10 years since the last proper installment, we’re bent on making certain we dig as deeply into the game as possible. Check back near the end of this week for our review.
In the meantime, keep an eye out for our cheats guide, which will be updated regularly as we play through. And if you’re playing yourself, don’t hesitate to let us know what you think.
