2.0 out of 5 stars EA is asking too much March 8, 2013
I am not a fan of DLC in general but I guess EA CFO Blake Jorgensen wasn't joking when he said all EA titles would include micro-transactions. You are basically paying the privilege to see a few unique building textures and the addition of an ostensibly useful service building with each city set (German, French, or English). Regardless of the issues with the base game, SimCity, this DLC is vastly overpriced and severely lacking in content.

1.0 out of 5 stars you'd get more buying an .99 app March 11, 2013
DLC issues aside, the add on content is not worth the price. I have the digital delux ed with Heros, French, German, and English city sets. By the time you have the 500k to plop down one of the tourist buildings (eiffel tower, big ben, brandenburg gate) you probably don't have many of the med sized buildings they advertise around your city. What you get is the tourist building (as useful as the standard issue ones), a utility building without significant difference from standard, and if you look around "where's waldo" style you might spot one or two french buildings buried beneath the skyscrapers. (i have yet to see an english or german style building in my cities). Forget ever seeing euro towns like the screenshots depict.

Basically, those of us who paid for the 'extras' got scammed and like the title says, you'd get more for your money by buying an .99 app for your phone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective by Design March 8, 2013
Because EA chose to tether a single-player game to an online server, they've created a situation where any server problems will screw up your own, private, single-player game.

Their latest attempt to "fix" the problems the game has been having is to remove the ability to play the game at speed so it won't talk to the server as often. Yeah, instead of disabling the misfeature where the game constantly talks to the server, they took an important feature away. Yes, fast forward is an important feature: I can't think of a Sim* game where I haven't kept it on the fastest speed 90% of the time.

Oh, and they're _still_ refusing to give refunds.

I honestly hope this is EA's first step towards Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
