I am glad that I haven’t brought this game yet and feel sorry for the people that have been waiting for their copies to be activated from Pro-orders and to be faced with just as many issues from the PC release.

SimCity on Mac is “totally unplayable” | TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog.

Ok People… Tomorrow is the day that SimCity 5 will be finally coming to Apple Mac after a number of pushed out dates. I have found that lots of people have givin up on EA because of delay?
