    Return of THE best city building game.

    Shame we haven't got any actual gameplay footage yet but nice to know that it's actually in development.

    That's where the money cheat came in useful

    Was a bitch though, only gave you £1,000 everytime you used it so you had to spam it in order to get anywhere

    I seen a few videos yesterday. Im assuming that is just a very early demo and not indicative of the final product? It looks a little...basic.

    Although I'm looking forward to this, I hope that they don't go for the Sim City Societies' simplistic approach.

    It looks cool but I'm wondering about the online play... if they embed Facebook I'd be so annoyed.

    Techy city vs. Industrial city? Urgh. Looks dangerously like Societies.

    Still, I'll live in hope that EA won't put the final nail in the coffin of this once great series.

    A lot of the SimCity 4 buildings look like they have been ported but made 3D... :erm: Oh well.

    A decade for a (hopefully) proper sequel... it better be good.

    SC4 was easy. No need to build schools, fire stations, police stations, mass transit or even water infrastructure in a small city so to begin with all you need to pay for is roads and power. Then add the above things as your surplus becomes big enough.

    I don't know about you guys, but is anyone else afraid that this might be another money-grab from EA? I seriously hope that with today's tech this game is able to improve on Sim City 3000 & 4. However with EA's recent antics in killing off & milking dead franchises I don't really know.

    I would be surprised if there wasn't a huge amount of DLC like in The Sims but after Sim City Societies sold like 7 copies, I think they realise that the base game needs to be good and it needs to be proper Sim City.
