Is SimCity worth buying now at 15pounds?

#1Cobra1010Posted 4/20/2014 9:11:32 AM
It was too expensive to buy at full price back when there wasnt offline mode, bugs and simulation lies.
I think they at least fixed the always online problem now. So is it worth getting this game at 15 even though i think the simulation is fake (e.g. population numbers not real), cities are small, citizens go to the nearest work places and goes home to the nearest house etc.

Will it get anymore cheaper or is this my chance?

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

Will it get any more cheaper? Well, obviously if you wait long enough EA may give it away for free like they did with Dead Space and the Sims 3.

I guess the question really should be: is the game in its current state worth 15 to you?

I'd guess based on your original post that the answer is no, but that's really your call.

I don't know your financial situation so I can't speak on how much 15 matters to you, but for me if I can get 10 hours out of a title for such a price I'm happy, in this case with SimCity I've played nearly 35 hours.

NB:This of course is my opinion, based upon the price of other leisure activities (restaurants/cinema/trip to the beach etc)

Wait for the next EA sale / humble bundle. That game is under-featured trash. I would wait until it's $5 USD.

If they pay you 15 to play it, sure.

Seems like a good deal to me.

That said, Digital Deluxe upgrade is only 4.99 which is the best I've ever seen. Too bad I don't have 5 dollars :( It makes me sad.
