    I think SimCity DS (USA) would be easier than the E version, lol

    Does this have save issues on the M3 like the (E) release?
    I'm still using the M3 CF.

    This is actually a really good game... I've been playing the E version since it was out and my city is in profit and running smoothly!

    The USA version would be easier than the European version because.....do I really have to make some ignorant statement that would get me flamed? Or can you just figure it out?

    Doesn't feel right playing on the ds. The screen's too small.

    anyone tested this on the 'ds-x', any difference in save problems? *hopes for the sake of his ds-x*

    Edit: Still dosn't work for anyone looking.

    Pretty good, if you don't count the clunky interface. It's like they got almost everything just about perfect, and then slapped the most half-assed interface they could come up with on top of it.

    It's a pity, because the city planning itself is very well done.

    It's a lot more realistic than Anno, you can't just set your ds down and walk away. Natural disasters, service lifes, aliens and other things all come into play that makes managment much harder

    My powerplant still blows up, I don't know what that's about. And, in the USA version, what are the names of the commercial buildings? In the E version, some are "UK traders" and "London Tailers"

    Ah that's normal, you see the powerplants have a life limit that was introduced in Sim City 2000. Usually you'll see it in the news ticker (note haven't played this version yet) with a warning, and you can check how much years the powerplant has left with the info function.

    Is the game supposed to have long pauses whenever you switch to graphs / building / basically any menu's in the game? Heck when I start a new city theres a long black screen pause between naming my city and naming myself...does it really take that long to go from one text input screen to the next, or is this just because its running off the supercard? If the retail didnt do this I think I might buy it, but this is just annoying as it is.

    It slows down on my R4 and 2GB Toshiba [​IMG] It certainly loads slow too.
