Best iPhone games: The Simpsons Tapped Out

I think this is a bad "game".

So basically it's just a Simpsons themed Cityville?

The "game" is ok, what is not ok is that you need to remain connected to Wifi or WAP whenever you play it as it needs a connection to EA's Origin servers all the time you play....which is awful!

Numerous times you will disconnect or not even connect to the game

So you're basically restricted to playing it in one place rather than on the go?

Ea have to stop using that crappy 'always connected to EA servers' system. It's a networking nightmare.

This game is terrible. I played it over the course of one day and basically unless you are willing to pay a stupid amount of money to buy in game stuff, theres not much you can really do in the long run after a day or so. Terrible game. After all of the gems CVG has been posting on here, I'm wondering why they posted this piece of crap on here

It is awful. It is the first freemium game i've played because it was simpsons themed. I started out and did the tutorial and then hit a road block, no doughnuts and no money and stuff is taking a day to build... real time. I'm at the point now where i open the game at a certain time of the day, set everyone off doing something.. mostly 24 hour requirements because they give the best rewards. Then i switch it off for a day or until i remember to play it again.

I don't know how this can be classed as a game. Freemium is terrible. If i wanted to finish this game is a reasonable timescale i think i'd be spending more than £40. The price of an actual decent game.

Hey CVG, did you know they also make games for Android phones? I know it sounds mad as a bag of hammers, but its true.
