People whom use to play SimCity on PC will like the new un linear paths. Meaning the game is a lot more random then its PC counterpart. We are sure EA will develop versions of this game as time goes on. We gather from the huge success from Zynga. That people live things like Farmville and other games. SimCity to us falls in the same category. You build stuff, visit people and the game develops as you play. This is in strong contrast to games like Diamond Dash.
Other than that SimCity Social has other random things you might encounter. EA’s release mentions fires, pollution and crime. Now i really hope that I’m not sitting in an important business meeting and some facebook email comes trough and tells me my house is on fire. Which one will I go to, My real house or my SimCity Social house?
The Other social aspect of EA’s facebook game is that you are able to interact with fellow players and facebook friends. You can visit their cities and scope out their crime rates. Then even going back further. Most 20 year olds won’t know what I am talking about. You can set relationships with cities. You can be a friend or foe. Much like the old Age Of Empires. I miss that game.
Then taking a feat neat features in the game. Talking about pollution and crime. Well if kids are playing this game that can certainly learn about being green. As the way to stop pollution in your SimCity Social game. Is to live green. Fight crime and kill fires.
To be honest this is the first real live experience game I have seen in years. SimCity Social deals with real life problems. Teaching kids and adults about pollution crime and the rest. I totally give EA the thumbs up on this game, awareness in each person playing this game is the aim here. That’s why this game is free. If there was ever a gaming company that has a social responsibility and done something about this. This game brings things to perspective. I can only think if someone like Apple would ever bring out a green iPhone it would be made out of sticks and recycled iPad boxes.
We mention this game and we will give it a decent 8/10
