It is not true that single cells are considered more complicated. Cells in multicellular organism have to be equiped by transmembrane receptors which transduct extra-cellular signal into inside of a cell. Single cells have only glycoprotein receptors which react with enviroment around. Cells in multicellular organism are more likely specialised for their function while single cells all they do on their own. For example, a single muscle cell has only equipment of huge protein fibres to contract. Their function is only to contract themself and prepare energy for this contraction.
