IRB Gamer apologizes as we’ve yet to release our SimCity Review. We could put one out in the stage that the game is in, but we respectfully can see that the game is in no shape of reviewing, nor playing. And that’s our overall issue, getting a fair chance to play and conduct a review.
It’s not just us, its you! Many of you that put your funds and faith in SimCity. It looks promising, which is the issue as we are beyond “looks” as the game has officially launched March 5th.
On a good note Maxis’ General Manager Lucy Bradshaw has mentioned sever capacity has increased 120% in the last 48 hours, and that “disrupted experiences” are down about 80%. “So we’re closed to fixed, but not quite there,” she admits. (according to IGN).
Though the game is quite broken, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. In addition, Maxis wants to accommodate gamers that have activated their game by March 18 with a free game.
“I know that’s a little contrived,” Bradshaw admits, “kind of like buying a present for a friend after you did something crummy. But we feel bad about what happened. We’re hoping you won’t stay mad and that we’ll be friends again when SimCity is running at 100 percent.”
