SimCity was one of the first major sandbox games that allowed the player to flesh out the role of a God and control an entire city on his screen. It was created by Will Wright and till this date enjoys fan appreciation and respect. Recently Maxis decided to launch its newest endeavour in the SimCity series called SimCity Online. For old fans and newcomers alike this was major news as it was allowing them to step into the shoes of the Almighty once more and build their city from scratch. Little did they know that they would be in for a nasty surprise.
