SimCity Launch Causing Severe Server Issues

Want to know why there aren't many SimCity reviews up yet?

EA is having severe launch problems for SimCity today. Many people, including us here at Den of Geek!, are having issues even connecting to the servers to play the game.  All North American Servers are full or busy, and unconnectable.  And, you can try joining another server not in your region, but you're unable to create a city to start playing.

We're beyond frustrated because we cannot even play the game to review it for you guys, but we're not alone.  There are numerous enraged gamers around the net due to not being able to play SimCity.  EA has released the following statement:

The SimCity servers are currently inundated with the masses of eager mayors attempting to govern their cities.

Some players may currently be experiencing issues or delays when attempting to join a game server or region - or may be unable to create a city at this time. Additionally, there are intermittent reports of friends list, invite, and tutorial delays and errors. We are working to clear traffic from the roads and hope to have all players managing their cities as soon as possible.

We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience while we work on a resolution to this issue.
