Addictive but limited interactivity Been playing this game for a long time... Enjoy the events but wish more time is given to complete the limited time event tasks. Also there are glitches in the objects with moving water like fountains and pools. The glitched objects look like they are made of large fragments cut up from other unrelated objects in the game. The way to go around this bug is to go into Move Objects mode and tap the glitched object. This will restore the glitched object.
Funny and free! A great game to kill time. It's funny, but I just wish you could "opt out" of special events if you don't want to do them! The monthly updates can be annoying. More boardwalk sections please!
The best. Don't Download it. IT WILL GET YOU ADDICTED FOREVER! Still awesome after so many years. I took a break when I went to college, now I play it again and its so much user friendlier now. So many donuts for free. I love it.
Tedious gameplay Occasional amusing quotes fail to make up for tedious gameplay and poor user interface. On the positive side there are frequent game updates (still the case several years in) and games is playable without expensive in game purchases. Short run events can be entertaining... but emphasise grind of rest of game.
Two words: building rotation I just can't give it 5 stars knowing that it's so poor as a city builder game. There's too few types of roads and decorations, and most importantly you can only rotate objects in two directions, which makes it extremely difficult to make your town look good and almost impossible to make it look great. Probably the saddest thing about this is that the designers know about these mistakes and they're not going to fix them. :'(
MORE LAND EXPANSIONS! Come on EA the thing I look forward to every major update is not the decorations, new buildings and other unnecessary items, for me it's always the new land. And I've been patiently waiting for the new S.H land for months and now for this major Christmas update I was hoping you'd continue the tradition of unlocking more strips of land but much to my disappointment it wasn't something to look forward to this winter/Christmas holiday. PLEASE MORE LAND, THAT'S ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS.
Time to celebrate the Holidays like the good ol’ days. And we mean very, very ol’. Think goat heads and bonfires. Join the Simpsons family and friends (and bitter enemies) as they celebrate non-traditional holiday festivities and have one big Pagan party in your town!
With new decorations, buildings, characters and more… Will your town unite behind these new holiday activities or will Christmas conservatism reign?
