    "Does not work!"

    December 30, 2010  |   By missjennyo


    I have no idea, as I can't play the game for more than 5 minutes at a time.


    It shuts off and crashes my computers after 5 minutes of play.


    I received this in a boxed set of 5 SimCities games, none of which work. The game shuts off after 5 minutes or less of play (on Windows 7, Windows Vista and on my sister's Windows XP). I've tried it on 3 computers (all of which exceed the minimum required specs per their readme file). I had my hubby double check and neither of us can figure out why. I wish I would have read reviews first, as this is apparently a really common problem. I got it for Christmas without a receipt (and don't really want to ask for it), so I'm just going to pitch it.
