Will SimCity ever be fixed?

Does anyone know if SimCity will be fixed? I'm talking about the transportation issue, where mass transit doesn't work. It is a really frustrating issue, as the sims will complain about no transport, and just move out. This repeats in cycles, and it is impossible to maintain a good city.

I also suspect the roads aren't working correctly, because if I use the traffic overlay, it's all green, even though I have 45 000 inhabitants. Just search in the Sim City help thread for transportation and you will see more examples.

If this had been a PC game, it would have been fixed already I'm sure. Atm, it's the worst $10 I've spent in the App Store, when it easily could have been the best

As soon as (or if) SimCity starts getting consistently good reviews for working correctly, I'll buy it. I wonder how many people are waiting for the fixes before purchasing, and how many took a leap of faith based on EA's reputation?

Needs update soon

I unfortunately jumped at this the first day it came out and haven't played it since. It could be a good game, but needs to be tweaked.

I also have been letting it sit on my phone as it isn't too fun to use just yet. I am highly hopeful for an update shortly.

I bought it too the day it came out.. many good times, just by now they should have released an update..

I'd say hold off and wait for a price decrease or the update if you're still on the fence

I also bought it as soon as it was released. Unfortunately, played it only about 2hours total. I still think the game, even at this point with its several issues, is still worth $9.99 - but only for Sim fans who are sure they have time to put into it.
