I am going to say that I am not excited about this game at all, I played a whopping eight hours last night just to get a feel of the game. Here's what I don't like about the game (although probably implemented by the developers for a reason).
- A. Small Region
-- 1. Makes city (region?) planning almost impossible.
-- 2. By the time you have the money to install railroads, airports, and avenues you already have a full region.
----a. Makes running an avenue or railroad line difficult from the source region
----b. If you had the room to install the transportation to run to another region, implementing the system into the heart of the source region will require demolishing your zoned areas which is your source of income.
--3. Distance between industrial and residential zones is minimal and gets crowded together as you zone more regions...then you have to worry about commercial zones.
- B. Zones
--1. They took away tiered zones!!
The only way of specifying what type of zone is by the type of road you place. I would like the option of placing farms at least!
-- 2. Ugh, hate the new zoning layout, unless I missed it. But I like the spread out like Sim City 4, instead of placing your own roads.
- C. Agents
-- 1. I thought this would be a cool implantation, but no it makes things very difficult. Seriously, my city gets crowded and within four hours all my industry had burnt to the ground, every store was being robbed, and a third of my residents had died.
--2. If the region was bigger, then I might be able to spread my city out more and be able to provide better layout of roads...but I guess not at this point.Edited by cloudbyday - 3/6/13 at 6:00pm
