It's a fairly small price to pay since everything but the log is completely useless solo., BUT this is still too little too late. At this point I would have rather EA released a separate, offline SimCity 5 for a reasonable price. No Origin crap, no stripping, just a singleplayer experience with huge maps.

It's hard not to see why it came so late. SimCity was full of in-game ads and various marketing gimmicks that all required players to be online for the ads to stream. Releasing an offline component would be breaching the ad contract EA established prior to the game even launching. Breaks my heart to see what happened to this game.

Origin in itself makes the whole experience almost not worth it, though the fact that you have to put everything in offline mode - for an experience that does strip down some of the game's features - is simply not worth it at all.

I don't understand how you could screw up THIS badly.

Game is still terrible with such tiny city limits.

Should have come out like this, now nobody will know about it unless they have the game and play it frequently. I won't be content though until I get my bigger city limits. I'm tired of making damn neighborhoods.
