    The movement and the ability to delete structures for refund could be better. Trading HQ could be so much better, my main concern are the loading screens. Perhaps instead of loading the whole city a separate map viewer could be opened that shows general statistics and layout but not the entire city. That way trading could be done faster between cities and there would be more involvement with the trading community. As it stands its a real chore and is deterring me from trading as much as I'd like. Another idea is if the stock market could be integrated somehow. I think that would be cool, and it would add an element of realism. Full Review

    Addictive & fun. In a perfect world: more land expansion is needed. Also, variable prices at the GTHC based on scarcity would be better than fixed ones based on difficulty to produce. One important thing. There is premium currency in this game. It's very easy to accidentally spent it, as there is no confirm button on premium currency purchases. Fix this and will give 5-stars again Full Review

    The more stuff is added the lagier it gets. Game freezes when buying items, when going over your city, with the chat, loading the flobsl trade, travelling to other cities and basicly everything nowadays. Requires multiple restarts of the game and reboots of my phone regularly to keep jt playable nowadays. It used to be really good and smooth, but it only gets worse each update and no improvement in sight. I only play now because I made some good friends in my club, but the actual fun is long gone. :( Full Review

    This is a great game,very addicting, but can you please fix the glitch that makes everything either too big or too small. The contest of mayors screen doesnt even show up only shows up one third. Will rate higher once this is fixed, its very annoying Full Review

    Game is basic in its features. The worst part of the game is the trade hq. Rather than letting you buy directly off the hq menue you have to load the other players city. If your phone doesnt load it as fast as someone else they can snipe the goods you need to buy. Full Review

    Lots of potential! A EA omega blog headquarters building for idears would be good. bring back the cinema, city with no cinema! Simcity needs a expansion. Don't like the desaster battle concept, it should of been a stock exchange battle concept. and had a better approach to the Desasters emergency service building with weekly events for random desaster repairs for existing and new realistic scenarios. Get rid of vu building and desaster island and replace it with emergency desaster service building and a weather towers. Then instead of having to event there would be 3 online events. Full Review

    Game has been really buggy for the last month but just got a new update and now it's amazing again. It's really fun. Clubs and club wars are a good addition. Contest of mayors keeps it interesting. Great game but be prepared to waste a LOT of time! Full Review

    Currently the game is having lagg or a constant hesitation problem in all spects of the game greatly impeding the enjoyment of the game play compared to that of about 2 months ago, so this problem seems to be worsening. Once the problem is resolved I will change my review. This was my go to game prior to the issues. Update: Feb 13, 2018 Since last review posted above, the game had an update fixing addressing all said problems, back to normal now. :) Full Review

    I would give it a five star rating but sometimes if I don't be on it for a while it resets me and then I have to go through all the beginning steps again and again. It gets really annoying, can you guys try to fix it? Full Review

    Great game!!! Would love coins for basic production items but they are not necessary for this game to be great. Also maybe if there were rewards for club donations back and forth more lol would do it. Thanks for providing really great entertainment :) Full Review

    Its addictive n Fun. But many improvements can be done. 1. Items in queue should be able to reshuffle. 2. Items from Trading Post should have 20 or 30% allocation for group, item from those should be available for Group War items. Full Review

    Gord Cuthbert Published date: February 18, 2018

    Only thing I hate the most is when your in the trade depot you click on an item as soon as you see it and then it's gone before you get the opportunity to even have a chance to get it. Shouldn't show it if I cannot get the item at all. Really sucks when you can't get the item. Full Review

    Only the president should be able initiate the war, and there should be a separate storage for war items not use your main storage.. Controls are not smooth, when you're in stalls to buy you should have the option to discard an item in your storage while out buying when you've filled up.. This is how you miss out on items that you need and you can't go back to find that person to buy it once you've gone back to your own city.. Should be an easier way to go through your teams cities, instead of having to go back and forth to your own city and go through the members list to get to the next city.. Ive spent way to much money on this game as it is.. Seriously disappointing game Full Review

    The very good very old concept,very poorly done. Graphics is ok,we have HD screens not to all of it potential. Main rule of this game - greed of makers. I have played it for long time and only way to keep it entertaining is to keep putting money in it. Very big gap between what you can earn in the game and payoff options. Not a pleasant experience. I do love Sim games, the more i play this one, more I feel like someone is pulling my chain to get more and more money out of me.... Full Review

    Stop forcing us to continue upgrading residential buildings. We want our buildings to fit in with their surroundings. Make it possible for us to produce dozer parts. Being forced to encounter them randomly by luck is terribly frustrating. I am an environmentalist and don't *want* to develop the beachfront. Oyy. In addition, do NOT use AAVE as an example of uneducated speech. It's racist. So stop it. Please give us a larger gaming area so that we can have larger cities - or, in my case, specialised mini-cities that are connected to each other. Full Review

    Game keeps crashing. Logged complains, uninstall/reinstall but it still crashes. War delivery never gives rare war items like plunger, hydrant etc. Depot is always full with burgers. You will rarely find the items you need in global depot. Cant buy/sell neo items. Full Review

    SimCity BuildIt is one of the better tycoon games thanks to its gameplay mechanics. It comes with a few hiccups though (heavy monetization and grinding). Nevertheless, it's more than a decent simulation game that you should try. Full Review

    B H Published date: February 18, 2018

    Too hard to get stuff you need! I think the game is aware of what you need and makes it impossible to get. And then if by chance you do run across an item you need you'll never get it because it'll be sold to someone else beforehand, especially if you have a slower internet speed than others. Takes up incredible amounts of time and just not really enjoyable at all, in spite of cool graphics. Waste of time! Full Review

    Came back to the game after a few years, like the changes a lot. We could just really use the ability to cycle through all the different donations when working on epic projects. It's a serious pain to have to tap on each bubble individually. Full Review

    Fun and addictive (Edit: I just came back from a long pause from this game and it's still great. Glad to see they kept up with updates. Still wish something is done about the market where you buy stuff from other players. Most of the time when I go to buy something, it's already sold...). Full Review

    Good game , I need time to give a full review. Edit: After playing for over a month this game is sorta a time consuming if you want a edge . Storage capacity issues and growth. Plan on being bored and to stay at a low level to upgrade slowly or blowing quite a bit of money. Fun game regardless. Full Review

    The global market hq portion of the game makes it such that as you get higher up in levels, it's impossible to obtain the expansion items you need unless you have your own dedicated high speed Internet line. Ruins the joy for the whole game. Full Review

    The contest runs too long!!!! It makes it very difficult to coast when life demands it. Then if you don't play you lose your progress. And now you want me to do a war and one of the reasons I play your game cuz I don't want to study war no more you have gone way out of your way to make this a bad experience for me because I actually love the game building the town but I don't want to go to war and now you're telling me I got to go to war to earn points in the contest that run too long! And worst of all is your support especially Binod!!! They have consistently missed the actual issue. Bad support. I had gotten some decent support a while back and I did like the game so I spent some money on it. But no more. I will not spend money on a game that isn't supported well!!! Full Review
