After a year of horrible reviews and the horrible "always online" requirement, Simcity is finally getting offline play.
This is a very good thing, as reviewers such as IGN were complaining about SimCity not having offline play. You always have to be online, which is a shame, because the earlier "sims" games did not require you to always have a connection to the internet.
Now, for those of you who do not know, Simcity is basically a game where you grow and develop a large and successful city. You have to manage your city so that most people have jobs, and most importantly, making sure that YOU are making money. You can also download other player's cities and admire their creations. It is a pretty cool mechanic and adds more playability to the game.
There is a single-player mode, but then again, it requires you to be ONLINE! They sure did mess up big-time. In fact, last year, the developers said there will never be a offline mode for Simcity. I really hope we get this update soon as this will make more people get interested, as well as allowing them to take their city wherever they want.
