Always Online doesn't bother me much. But how is the rest of the game, is it really as broken as people say? How's the replay value?

Always online brings along with it a handful of other issues. I've lost 5 cities because there were issues with it not being synced correctly. You can't choose to save the game, it just does it automatically when you quit, or some random time while you're playing.

The game itself is fun and overall well done, but the persisting issues would have me still not recommend it. You'll just be in for a world of frustration.

you'll have fun with the game until traffic breaks your city. EVERY city.

I personally don't have any online issues. I've never had a city lost due to rollbacks or anything. I never play in public games though, just by myself - so maybe that has something to do with it.

The gameplay is fun though. I would say there are still a slew of gameplay bugs that you may or may not notice until later though. If you're not absolutely craving to play the game, then I would probably wait until more of the issues have been fixed or the price has been dropped.

do yourself a favor and wait until this hits the bargain bin. Not worth paying full price.

Not EVERY city...rollbacks will eat a few before traffic gets a chance to break them.

When is all this **** gonna be fixed? Even though it's a downgrade from SC4 I know by itself the game is probably okay or even good. However I simply can't buy something where traffic breaks the game or you have a chance of losing your city. Does anyone know how long or if they'll even fix all of these game breaking bugs? I won't pay more than $20 for it in its current state.
