Kind of sucks for $6.99, plus they didn't even optimize the game for the retina display. I hope the new Sims game is at least optimized for the retina display, I'd probably buy it I only just for that.

I just want to know if this game is SimCity3000+Extracontent or something completely different?

Or another question, in case I bought already SimCity3000, should I buy this, too?

which was almost unplayable and never updated.
so we can assume ea will continue this tradition of releasing a new version each year and finally a playable version will appear.....the question is, is this it ?
seeing as my trust in ea is zero - i'll wait for some reviews !

and its a good point why no retina display ?

$6.99 is a bit steep...

especially when the previous one didn't impress me very much
