Average User Score: 2.2Apr 23, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. First, a message to the people that claim the game is bad:
The game developers claimed that they wanted to change or add a lot more of the aspects to the game, as well with fixing the bugs. They decided to release it early.(I believe this is right, correct me if I'm wrong.) What I'm trying to say is that it was released earlier than they expected, so of course you are going to see plenty of flaws with an incomplete game. Technically, it is, and I could see why. It may be over-hyped, but the game has TONS and TONS and TONS of potential. The concept of the game itself is truly amazing, however, it needs some work.
After 50+ hours of game-play, I really don't see how people hate this game so much. But, I did notice how most negative ratings came from when the game was first released. I could see why, because it was EXTREMELY broken then. Fixed now, but like I said: EA has some work to do about their game.
All I can say is that this game is better than SimCity 4, because even though SimCity 4 may be mod compatible, and be more complex, it's no more flawed than SimCity 2013 in it's current state. As time does work, SimCity 2013 will slowly start to become more complex and more bug free.
But at SimCity 2013's current state, I can only give it a neutral rating. Though I still do enjoy playing it however!
- Sometimes it will rollback cities, but is uncommon.
- Needs bigger city limits. (Or in some way be able to make your city limits larger.)
- No parking garages for cars, as for some buildings the cars go right through the building to enter.
- No offline mode!
- Needs bigger regions.
- Needs to fix syncing issues with cities in the region.
- Needs more types of specializations.
- Needs more types of minerals.
- Game is too simplified.
- Needs more types of roads (Highways! Interstates!)
- Should be an option to build outside of your city limits in order to make road systems and rail systems, etc. at the least.
- Needs a fix for demand issues (Infinite demands in late game for no real explained reason.)… Expand

Average User Score: 8.5Jan 28, 2012Terraria is a great game if you are still underground, digging, fighting monsters, and exploring. But what do you do after you are done? ThereTerraria is a great game if you are still underground, digging, fighting monsters, and exploring. But what do you do after you are done? There is absolutely NOTHING to do after you are done. Build houses... you can't really build cool stuff in terraria. I have played the game for over 200 hours, but I want a refund. NOW PEOPLE KEEP ON SAYING MINECRAFT is BAD just because Notch stopped devloping it. I am pretty sure Notch does not want to work on Minecraft for the rest of his life. I know I wouldn't. If you like Minecraft, which started everything, don't buy this game. Also, if you like to build, DEFINATELY, don't buy this game.… Expand

But i mean i think its funny to seeProbably the funniest game I have ever played. Sure, the graphics.... well... Its 1D, just letters. But i mean i think its funny to see letters stabbing other letters. This game is actually fun too. You can literally get stabbed ANYWHERE in adventure mode. Left middle finger, nose, right toe, it gets funny when you are fighting.… Expand
