The cities look too small to me though. Isn't the best part of Simcity creating huge, sprawling cities? Can't really do that with such a tiny ass grid.

It is small, and the game is centered around the region thing. After completing my first city, I worked on a second city to complement it. There weren't enough people in my first city who needed jobs.

IMO, multiplayer was the focus of the project, and it changed the way the game is played. I've wasted half the day playing it, so I'm enjoying it right now. Still, it isn't really simcity in the same way AoE3 isn't AoE2.

I wouldn't recommend it at full price. Simcity doesn't support mods at launch(EA says it will eventually). It feels too limited.
