The "free game" was a compensation to current especially early pre-order owners of SimCity who was the first in line to experience the major server shortage problems in its first week of launch not as an answer, EA/Maxis didn't said they was giving an offline mode and likely never will for the foreseeable future based on their stance.
EA is very generous. They keep fixing the game and give a permanent free good, if not AAA, games. We should appreciate EA. We play games. They help us playing better games. Or do you want to play Tetris again or maybe still playing kite? --- But its power goes beyond what is necessary... Does one really need the power to destroy everything? Fei - Xenogears

the internet 'exploded' over the drm not the game. They're literally complaining about how the traffic works the same as in sim city 4, then proceeded to buy sim city 4 to make it a top 20 amazon seller
Nearly every credible review talks about how the game is good. Some didn't review until after the servers launched and rightfully talk about the server issues that were a problem launch week, especially the first three days.
As those of us that actually own the game, the server issues haven't been a problem the last 2 weeks.
Of course you'll keep your tin foil hat on and still be unable to use any facts on your behalf. #Shocking. Activision really needs to spend their money better. --- http://mikelikesthis.net/ Review: New SimCity
