    It's ok but would be better if the points in contest of mayor is reviewed. I keep getting less than 1000 point quests and few of 2000 and even lesser 3000. I personally don't think that the contest is a fair match and preferences are being shown. Also can the weather be a little more realistic like rainfalls, snow and others to bring even a real life scene to the game play. Would give a five star if all these are being address. Full Review

    This game has beautiful graphic but you know what I say I want to say that after watching the video we can see 3 prize boxes in front of us and we have to choose one of them which they have great prize. But I always choose the same box actually I choose different box sometimes I choose first one sometimes second maybe third one but answer is the same everytime. And I can never find these prizes which we can see them at the annoucement beforhand. IT IS UNREAL AND DAMN HACK. I dont like it. Please fix it I want to play as a real. Full Review

    I really loved this game when I first started playing it but now at level 38 it's very hard to get the things u need 2 get land, storage and build special buildings. 70% of the time the bubbles and exchange give u nothing and when you send the transports out u get hardly no money. I had 2 start picking and choosing as 2 which things I would send. It cost an arm and a leg 2 upgrade anything and factories don't work much faster.The Mayor's game is interesting.I like the game but I play much less. Full Review

    Enjoying it so far (apx 2 hours played). Could do with a tweak to speed of production on key materials such as nails, as these hamper progress in the early stages of the game, encouraging use of in app purchases. The game does well not to ram the sales pitch down the users throat though - no adverts, no "special offers", and so on. Which is a welcome relief. Overall, it's very enjoyable. I'll be sticking with it for a while! Full Review

    I do enjoy this game and understand that it's a Freemium one, but I wish there was a catalog to go to be able to purchase old offered items. At the time of this writing, EA was offing an Athletic Field (American college football) and I so much wanted to add one to my University's property. But I don't have the hundreds of Simbucks at this time and the "sale" is over in just a few days. I wish I could still be able to purchase it at a later date. Other than that, I typically really enjoy this game. Full Review

    I like the game a lot, but it is getting a little boring. I am done with the contest of mayors. It is much too difficult to move up in the city rankings just to get the special items (60,000 points is not enough to get promoted out of City League, seriously?). There are lots of new cool things to add to the city, but no land expansion on which to place them, and the myriad requirements of special items is incompatible with a maximum storage of only 500.

    This game is one of which i found myself pleasantly surprised. The graphics are outstanding, especially for a mobile app, very impressive. The initial levels move quickly and your city expands rapidly. Once those first 20 or so levels are completed, you will be discouraged to find that, similar to most mobile gaming apps, the pace of progression rapidly deteriorates. After a certain period of gaming, you realize more and more that the creators of the game designed it in such a way that the more you progress, the less enjoyable the game becomes without spending physical money. All considered, it is a fun and highly interactive game, and quite addictive, however you will find that it becomes substantially less enjoyable as you progress. Full Review

    The game overall is, in my opinion, among the best on the market. The graphics are nothing short of amazing. I enjoy the gameplay because the tasks keep you busy, especially when competing in the contest of mayors. The prizes are enough of an incentive to keep the players motivated to keep moving forward in the game. One complaint though, is the length of time it takes to load the city you visit. By the time you get there, the item you're looking for is sold. Full Review

    Pay to win. The game is geared to make you grind hard enough to want to spend $ so you can actually expand. This resource management style of gameplay has you spending most of your time searching the market place to find what you need, mostly expansion items. Mayors contests needs to have additional lower brackets with better prizes. You can still play for free and occupy your time with this game. Full Review

    I really enjoy the game and thumbs up for that but I want to connect my new city to my Facebook and Google Play account to save the data. I no longer play the old one and i want to overwrite it as it won't let me connect to my new one! It keeps giving me the message "Sorry, Mayor! This account is already linked to another city. We cannot log you in to this account." I wish to connect and play with my Facebook friends and i can't open a new account to log in for my new city and save my data. Please, do smth on the next update as i see that a lot of players are experiencing the same issue. Thank you in advance! Full Review

    New updates are great more please! Suggest canals with bridges, expandable parks, traffic free areas with flyovers, also could the special buildings be selectable? Like the new items for the empty spaces with no road boundaries now with more variety. Mayor contest is another good addition but very difficult to win but like being able to win keys. Omega update is interesting but it would be better if you would sell off unwanted items. Some good additions like the vault to place items you want to keep but want to replace with seasonal items. It would be nice to be able to swap or store buildings. Suggest new industrial and leisure areas independent of the city that could be accessed rail tunnel or boat.☺ Full Review

    I love the game and would give 5 stars except that it is now killing my phone's battery life. Over the last 2 weeks I have noticed that the game is draining the battery and it barely lasts the day now. I was happily playing this game two weeks ago and the battery lasted 2 days easily. Has something changed in recent updates? Could we have an option for lower graphics / less panning / less zooming to reduce power consumption in future? I have noticed that the phone heats up when visiting other cities and I am wondering if the view panning across the city before the store opens is causing this. My phone is a Sony Xperia X Compact Android v7.1 Thanks Full Review

    So, EA found my "lost" game and restored it. Took them about a month. The expansion costs are just to high to make this game really enjoyable. In-game purchases can also become very, very expensive. A quick update. The tech support at EA is absolutely pathetic. There is no use logging a call with them. They somehow lost my game and 3 weeks later they still don't have a solution. I have spent thousands on this game and they couldn't be bothered. Full Review

    On samsung j3...road lights and shadow feature is not working.. the game looks much better on some other handsets. Please review and resolve. Also pls try to incorporate some of the following. 1. Street view or a drivers view of the city 2. Weather changes 3. More zoom in, so that sims can be seen moving around. Thanks Full Review

    EA customer support is useless. I've lost the ability to zoom out even though my game is updated. No help from customer support. I've wasted money on a game that doesn't give a damn about its paying players. Well, no more. I won't use another EA app again. Done, over and out with a smoldering middle finger. Full Review

    Expanding the city costs way too much. And earning Simoleons is slow compared to the prices of buildings. Sure you can sell your materials, but they take way too long to make sometimes. Despite all that, its a fun game with great graphics, and it doesnt shove ads down your throat. Full Review

    AJ Bowley Published date: September 15, 2017

    I am a Simcity fan from way back. The problem with many free tablet games is how to make it commercially viable. Build it limits your city area and it is way too expensive to unlock areas. This removes the creativity from the game, the layout of your city is dictated by small area so everyone's city is laid out the same. Boring! And no terrain modification. Sim city 2000 was way better! Full Review

    Lori Gregoire Published date: September 10, 2017

    As with other Sim City games from the past,the amount of earnings are not in proportion to the charges for services. Some of the challenges are impossible to achieve and the rewards for watching videos only work about half the time. Some items you need to expand your city are only available if the game decides to give them to you or if you are lucky enough to find them in the marketplace. This game still needs some work, but has the potential to be a fun game. Full Review

    Reduce the time of production of items and multiply keys when we are done with the shipping at 2 keys one shipment. It's a great game. And why can't you add some industries to manufacturing the bull dozer spare parts it will great. Please think about it. Otherwise it's a perfect game. We need the industries to begin to produce the dozer parts and for Dr.Vu Items. It's amazing but where are the industrials for dozer.i can't see a train, garbage collectors ,ambulance, fire Bridget And police on my s3. Full Review

    Shane Ross Published date: September 11, 2017

    Very much enjoy the game. It gets quite frustrating trying to acquire the dozer parts to expand my city. If you'll get lucky by chance you may find one part for sale in the market or if the game randomly awards you one. Easier but expensive approach is SIM cash but it can cost up to $15 to purchase enough SIM cash to expand a 6x2 land slot. Hardly a bang for your buck. Graphics are good, so far runs normally Full Review

    Should add some more areas and add a island in the see and also it will be better if animals for zoo and more landscapes are added so that we could buy the by using golden keys. Why the game does not sync properly and it exits it self after few seconds Full Review

    Aetheri Omnis Published date: September 11, 2017

    Really nice! I like the graphics and the animations of the busy life of sims. Suggestions: Please make the disasters more realistic and please add a Tsunami disaster. I also want a river in the game so i dont need to connect lakes and spend golden keys for that. You could also add expansion areas to another side of the river and the players would build the bridge. I also want water transportation like a port. Also add train station and subways in transportation because I like this game a little more realistic. Please make the prices of Services cheaper and dont make the prices rise with every purchase it's very difficult large amounts of simoleons besides the city hall. That's all, thank you. I'm looking forward to the improvements you'll make in the future. Full Review

    It's a fun game. It can be leisure or offer more of stimulating game. It's a good download if you are/were into sims/tycoon games. The only think lacking is the ability to toggle through the epic points. It's tedious to click on each bubble, especially if you have a lot going on in a certain area. Full Review

    My new phone, LG K10 is stuck zoomed in when playing. I have been a long term player but if you can't fix it so I can zoom out and see more of my city I'll stop playing. It's to difficult to move around a large city zoomed all the way in. Please fix this, it makes gameplay horrible. Full Review

    Kathryn Fessia Published date: September 19, 2017

    I like this game a lot but the one thing that drives me nuts is that you can't zoom out very far. You cant get a good overview of your city and you have to scroll to get to anything. Also special items should show up faster, I'm basically stuck until I can expand. And I'm not paying money to get the parts. Full Review

    Look guys I don't know what's going on with all the lagging, crashing & loss of items ( including special items) I thought it was just my device but talking to my member's I came to the conclusion that's not the case. It's on your end and it needs to be fixed ASAP !!! I've spent money on this game because I enjoyed playing. I'm furious that my member's & I have lost items, the ad box's if you're even receiving them specially during our tournament right now! This is an avalanche of B's and needs to be fixed ASAP!!!! NOT IMPRESSED!!!!! Sad because it's a decent game. We'll be watching and waiting Full Review

    Once you unlock Future Cities, you have to spend real money to expand storage. And the Omega factory is a joke - creating stuff you can already craft yourself. Not to mention the Mall where you supposedly can buy unique items, but again most of it are stuff you can craft yourself. And you can't even sell omega stuff you are overstocked on. Full Review

    It needs a better market. You should have the option to get a list of all cities that sell a particular item and go to them. Being forced to scan the market unsuccessfully or randomly visiting towns for hours sucks when your searching for something. You can always visit cities and be rewarded for that but the market needs to match the tech level seen in the buildings. It becomes too much a time sucker when i try to use. The market looking for something. Full Review

    Will Hawkins Published date: September 14, 2017

    This is the most frustrating game, particularly as the creators of the game have built in algorithms to make it as hard as poss. For example - it can take hours to manufacture what you need but, if you try to buy it instead, it's not available. After completing manufacture the item suddenly becomes available on the market. You can't convince me this is not rigged. Now I can't get it to connect to server sometimes, even though my Internet connection is good. Also, it tells me I can't do certain things unless I'm connected WHICH I AM! Full Review

    This is the best city building game that I have ever played, and I'm really addicted to it. Worth of giving 5 stars. But one request. The land is not enough to build all special buildings. Plz make a way to expand the land more in an upcoming update....And also, I don't like to build all residential buildings into skyscrapers. Just want to keep some small houses to make the city well planned. But the yellow hats around the city looks ugly. So plz make a way to stop upgrading residential buildings according to our choice in an upcoming update Full Review
