Take a look. Polygon still has a 95 score for SimCity on Metacritic, and the Metacritic score is the only one that matters. Here's an example why. Polygon gave them the score they wanted to give them, or got paid to give them, and then artificially changed it to get the page hits from the EA haters.
The entire score changing is a ruse to get more page hits. I no longer trust polygon.
Isn't any review system that uses numbers generally kind of a bad thing anyways? I mean, due to reviewer biases, individual tastes, and how reviews generally talk about the quality of the game (quality of the controls, quality of the graphics, quality of the story, etc.) as opposed to quantifiable things?
Like, is the number what matters, or the actual experience of playing the game?
FYI, I played all night on the Europe east server and had no problem at all.
