@PillClinton: @Seppli: I will be completely honest in my answer. It's not the SimCity I was expecting, nor is it a SimCity I want to play. Because I already played it.
Remember SimCity Societies? That was the SimCity not made by Maxis. In that you plopped down specific buildings to gain specific effects, much like they've been demoing with their Casino city demonstrations. In SCS, you could make prosperous, creative, totalitarian etc. cities and your citizens would react accordingly. This new SimCity seems like that game, refined, with a better simulation engine, and that's great! I really liked SimCity Societies, but like I said above, I've played it.
Not to mention the DRM, total lack of single player, no local save game storage, no modding, DLC (it's EA, I'm sure there will be some, they're already touting special city looks if you buy into the special editions.) All of that combined has just driven me away from the game. Saying EA killed it is perhaps a bit too strong.
