SimCity has just been released on PCs and the very first wave of reviews is already in. Apparently, critics are praising the resurrected city-building franchise, expressing that the game is definitely a step up since the last outing - SimCity Societies.
However, following a rather bad example, EA decided to integrate an always-on DRM scheme, which seems to be causing a tremendous amount of problems for players who have already dived into the game.
