'SimCity' preview: Hands-on with EA's fascinating city-building sandbox (Digital Spy)

Digital Spy writes: "The rebirth of SimCity - which sees the city-building simulation return after a ten-year absence - is a beautiful one.

"Gone is the isometric viewpoint and gridded layout systems of old SimCity games. Now you can swoop down to street level and follow one of many possible thousands of Sims living in your hand-crafted city as they go about their day-to-day business, and then back out to a regional view of three urban areas at once.

"The city, from the Sims to the flow of traffic and smoke billowing from factories has a cute, model-like look, one that often also looks absolutely gorgeous. When your creation is in full flow, it's almost hypnotic to watch the bustling metropolis at work." (PC, SimCity)
