  • Glitching

    By Ren Dip
    I loved this game until right now. For some reason it's telling me I need more police fire emergency rings power and water and sewage when I know for a fact I was good on all of them. IN FACT it says my capacity is easy higher than demand on them but everything keeps showing up in red. Also when I try to move a fire station so it covers the buildings more the buildings still show up red. All of this happened when I expanded my land. Something is NOT RIGHT. and I'm mad because I've spent real money on this game.
  • Fun but a little frustrating at times ;)

    By Maggie and Kaiya
    I really like this game and understand that it takes time and patience to build your dream city, but my struggle has been with the Epic Projects. In order to get a silver or gold Epic Building you need to collect around 80 Epic Points! This has been a real challenge for me, I have only ever been able to collect 30 Epic Points and have never earned a silver or gold building, just the bronze one. If I could make a suggestion that you make the Epic Projects more attainable for those of us that are at lower levels. Thank you! It really is a fun game
  • Speed up tokens

    By 10Brother22
    I believe the speed tokens should be convertible. For example 10 bronze tokens are needed to make silver tokens, and 5 silver tokens are used to make gold tokens. Thanks
  • SimCity dynamics at their finest, but frustrating algorithms

    By Biddhaz
    This game absolutely deserves all of its accolades. Overall, it’s an incredible game that is worth your time and energy (and perhaps money). Bravo, EA. PROs: -Crispy graphics and smooth animations -Engaging gameplay and balanced timer incentive system -Truly global connection with players around the world -Constant special events and promos -Free-to-play is entirely viable, no strong pay walls -Clean video ad system to earn extra items or expedite timers CONs: -Frustrating algorithms that make sure the items you need to upgrade a building or complete a task are *exactly* the items you DON’T have. This is especially true of the whole Neo ecosystem and also the epic building projects. -Frustrating algorithms -Did I mention the algorithms being umm... frustrating!!? -Must have Facebook to engage with other players outside of club wars -Lack of iCloud integration for backing up your city Minor Gripes/Requests: *Add timestamps in war logs. This would be a small step to help legitimize the war game for the more serious players *After watching a video ad and selecting a prize box, I’d suggest displaying the prize item the same way you display ever other prize item, i.e. make the user tap to collect it. Too often I miss which prize item I earned and which ones I missed after watching a video ad. *Allow emojis in chat or add more symbols —— (Playing on an older iPad Pro 9.7”, updated to latest iOS and app version) —— Thanks EA for creating and maintaining such a fun game!
  • It use to be fun

    By Joseph Pike
    The building game play is fun, but the wars are a joke. A team gets ahead then hides out under shields til it is over for an easy win. City’s need to be limited on how long they can sit under the shield. This has happened repeatedly and make the game frustrating.
  • Was good until the last week.

    By groovypepsiguy
    Three times this week it has deleted my current progress. It then sends me back to the prior days progress. Yet it remembers what I spent. I am getting frustrated.
  • Great game

    By Miles E.
    The only problem is that instead of the city having a vast number of heights to the buildings, they all have the same Empire State Building feel, where they’re always tall, and that gives no height difference and makes it look a little too hectic, otherwise great game
  • Glitches too much

    By Jajaawesome
    I've always really liked this game but lately it has been glitching very badly. I can't be on the app for five minutes till it glitches out of the game. It especially does this when I am in the trading depot or whatever it is called. I really want this game to work but it is too frustrating and gives me continuous headaches. I really hope they can fix this app.
  • Good but..

    By BroDidMinecrapII
    I wish there was Sicilian, Filipino, Mexican, Madrid, Cairo, Athenian, African, Havanan, Moroccan, Brazilian, Pakistani style houses in the airport for houses. Other wise I love dis game
