Average User Score: 2.2Mar 6, 2013What score would you give to a restaurant where the food was supposed to be pretty good, but instead of being served the meal you ordered, the waiter just tells you that you have to wait another half hour for the next 2 hours and then have to leave hungry because you never got a meal? And so, you leave to go to work and come back the next day and still are told that you need to wait a half hours. What do you think the review for that meal should be?
Would you give it a "8" because you hear the meal is supposed to be pretty dang good or would it be the same score I am giving SimCity?
When the service (needing to be online to play single player) and the food (the game itself) are the same thing, you need to think about it. There is no excuse for it. If you cannot handle the initial brunt of people trying to use your product, it shouldn't have limitations that keep them from doing it.
I can't rate this game any higher as after 2 days, I still can't actually play it because there are other people playing it. I'm glad I didn't buy it for myself, but I feel bad that I have to lie to my friend who did buy it for me as a gift.… Expand

At first, I thought that this was a game where you fought monsters by swiping your finger up and down. Then, I realized that I wasn't the player, I was the game and that the player was actually Square Enix as they try to figure out how low they can set the bar on what is a game and still make money. Min/Maxing to the max! This is almost the Walmart of game design. Rock bottom gameplay with high, high prices.
With their other recent IOS games, I'm guessing that their next new title will just be a picture of a Black Mage that you press with your finger and it makes a click sound. You can buy additional random click sounds for $0.99. The special chocobo sound will be $3.99.… Expand
