Wouldn't that be mire an issue with origin than the actual function of the game?

I'd think the Sim City/Maxis folks were responsible for their own servers/anticipating demand. Both are owned by EA though, so the difference is largely academic.

I think maybe that I would separate my rating of the game itself with the handling of the servers. The game itself could be great, but EA should rightly draw the ire of people who purchased the game. But I wouldn't necessarily say that the game deserves 1 star due to a launch issue.

The fact that it needs to be connected to a server is the issue most have with it. There is no offline single player mode.
