Polygon reviewed an early-release of EA’s SimCity and found it to be near-flawless. They say it’s a highly addicting game that garners an impressive 9.5/10 rating. On top of that, they note that while the game idea hasn’t changed much since its inception, the gameplay itself is much improved and just beautiful to look at. So beautiful that you’ll never want to stop playing. I’m scared. Will this be the killer of all my free time?

UPDATE: The game has been downgraded by Polygon to a measly 4 because of widespread DRM issues.
