13. Re: SimCity Closed Beta 2 Next Weekend Feb 8, 2013, 14:57 Quboid
 
From what I've seen (which is limited to PR and doesn't include the first beta), it looks like a deeper simulation due to the agent system. The interface may be simplified but on its own, that's good thing and doesn't necessarily mean the game is dumbed-down.

The city size does look poor but I don't imagine they're limiting it just to annoy us. If that's the cost of a more detailed simulation, in particular more realistic traffic modelling (even with the Network Addon for SC4, it sucked), that's a price well worth paying IMHO. If it's because they want pretty graphics, that's a shame.

I'd like bigger city sizes (without a performance penalty, i.e. have cake and eat it) and the always-on requirement sucks very much but aside from these not inconsiderable issues, I'm looking forward to Simcity very much.
