SimCity review by Vikings punter Chris Kluwe: Slightly unfavorable

Maybe more than slightly.

Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, famed internet aficionado and friend of SB Nation's Progressive Boink, is among those not having a great time with the new SimCity game, which released with a controversial always-online requirement (meant to combat piracy) that its servers are evidently not prepared for.

Vox Media's Polygon has lowered its review score from 9.5 to 4, at one point Amazon stopped selling it and game features were disabled in order to try and cope with the load. It's been a bad look, but hope remains alive.

Kluwe's incorporated a stream of SimCity dissatisfaction into his daily commentary, which we've chronicled here:
