Just downloaded it. I'll give it a try. I've been looking for a good Sim City type game since Sim Coty Deluxe although with EA's track record, I'm not too optimistic.

A slightly updated version of Simcity Classic would be brilliant on the iphone/ipad. I don't know why they don't do that...

EA. I'm sure it's terrible. But I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Got lost on my way to GameFAQs...

Trading goods with friends makes it sound like all the other crappy city building games.

I'm sort of curious how far this game would have got if it didn't have EA listed as the producer, or "Sim City" anywhere in the title.
