I have hardly ever played with a Simcity, it does not attract me much, it seems boring.
Official Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyIRsLoWTgA
At the end of video there is also godzilla
It looks very - "dumbed down" and I am also hesitant about the requirement to play online to get many features.
* leefish does not play well with others
I've always been a Sim City fan. I didn't get Sim City Societies because it looked boring and ideological (would I have liked it better if it had been my own ideology instead of one I didn't like? I honestly don't know). But I loved Sim City, and Sim City 2000, and Sim City 3000, and Sim City 4.
This looks like it's right up my alley!
I'm going to be keeping up with it, and will let you know as the time gets closer, what I find out.
Of course, you can have computer opponents in offline mode, but that is not really the same. The concern of course is that EA will just pull the plug on the server after X time and we are all sat with a "useless" game.

Seems to imply that it is a requirement of "always online", and that there IS NO OFFLINE MODE.
Absolutely NOT gonna buy it.
