SimCity is now $4.99

It's ironic, really. I was just thinking of getting this this afternoon.

SimCity™

There are a lot of reviews in iTunes about crashes. Does anyone have any info on that?

Folks, just a fair warning: I've seen crack-heads hack up better material than "iDevice" SimCity.

That's not irony, that's a coincidence.

I like it, I would say it's worth $5. The last patch fixed pretty much all the issues. I haven't had a crash since... But the controls are still a bit wonky, I like it but I have always been a huge fan of the series...

hey guys, this is really annoying me, so, here goes:

[slightly annoyed post]

SIMCITY DOES NOT CRASH!!! ok, there, i spit it out. It does not crash, ok? I have a first gen ipod touch, and I have never experienced a crash from hours of play. I have a sneaking suspicion that the people who are crashing never restarted their iphones before playing. It doesn't crash people, and I'm not the only person who is saying that.

[slightly annoyed post/]

so seriously guys, it's a good game, an exact port of the original, and very fun. IT DOESNT CRASH!!! ok? I don't care if you buy it or not, but don't not buy it because you heard an untrue rumor about crashing(in the current version, they updated it recently).
