Is SimCity 5 any better?

I'm curious, because I'm interested in it and I've been looking at it for a while.

Online only DRM and small cities.

No.

Waste your money on something else.

The online only DRM isn't a problem to me, seeing as I have good internet. Small cities is a problem, but I thought that was remedied by modders.

Good internet is not flawless internet. Online only is a problem for everyone. If you disagree, you are wrong.

It also means the game will die in the future.

And People who Support Dev's Who choose the Online Only DRM bs Are part of the problem.

It Does Not Stop Piracy, It encourages it. And only hurts those who actually paid for the game.

Your internet may be fine, but what about their Servers?

I really thought the server problems were fixed by now. Or at least a majority of them.

Well Obviously it is not as bad as it was at Launch... But there is no need for it. It is awful Business Practices that should not be supported by anyone.

Also as the guy above said, When the servers get shut down... So does the game. Unless they patch the DRM out, But we are talking about EA, why would they do that? They will kill the game so you buy the New one when it comes out.

I honestly just wanted to try it. I really can't tell if I got much of an answer.
