Gamespy-Preview: Hands On With SimCity

GS:It's kind of hard for me to write about playing the new SimCity, because in most respects it's exactly what you think it is: a prettier, more detailed version of the classic city simulator on a somewhat smaller scale. I feel like most of the nitty-gritty is stating the obvious: I spent my starting budget of $50,000 to put down roads, placed power generators and water towers, garbage dumps and police and fire stations, hospitals and a city hall. Zoning residential, commercial, and industrial areas is free this time, guided by roads. The fundamentals are all there -- where this SimCity both outshines its predecessors and pales in comparison is in the multitude of details. (PC, SimCity)
