-75% off, ($10.00).

Week after week I have been upset w/ these deals, I just can't find anything that interests me, I've been holding on to some dough for quite some time. Looks like I may just hold onto it longer for the "Summer Sale" I keep hearing about. I love the Simcity series, would I like Cities XL?

I got it on sale for the same price a while back. I like it. Its very addicting BUT i must suck at it because my city always goes broke and jobs go out of business and i go negative money. must be some kind of option i missed where i picked Democrat.

I'd say it's worth $10 dollars, but it really isn't like Sim City. It's really buggy and if you build a large city it will slow down and lag considerably no matter how good your pc is. There's no story, no multiplayer, and no real direction, just build cities and trade with otherones you create. It's ok.

Is this true? Are there any patches or fixes? I won't get it if the problems are this bad.

Sorry I'm a little late, but everything I said was true. The game isn't that bad if you like to build, but there is nothing more to it. For me it got old after a few cities.
