Good Game....when you can play it.,
This review is from: Sim City (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
This is a good game. Problem is you can't play it/own it/save it.
Millions of people have already spoken out about this, but it needs to be said a million more times before EA get it into their stupid greedy heads.
DRM is not going to stop piracy. Truth be told, I don't think you will ever stop piracy. It will simply keep evolving; there will always be someone cleverer than you who can crack any game you throw at them, DRM or no DRM.
This is just a slap in the face for old school fans of the SimCity series. You are punishing people for buying your game! How is this a good idea?
You are basically saying that you don't care about your honest fanbase, because hey, you've already got their money. It's like you're assuming we're all criminals and will stop at nothing to make sure we don't pirate the game (even though we've already paid for it), at great expense to your game. Which is the whole reason we're here.
Don't buy this game. Don't even pirate this game. Ignore this game. The only way EA is going to listen is if we all forget this game. The server will be shut down within a few years anyway. Don't waste your time.
