Gamepower heeft een review gepost van Simcity 3000:
So what's new with this latest version? Well, for starters, there's the graphics. While it still has that same grid-based design, never has SimCity looked so detailed or nicely rendered. There are more than 350 3-D rendered buildings (as opposed to SimCity 2000's 80), and you can now zoom in closer than ever before. You can see individual pedestrians going about their meaningless little lives and driving their cars to their meaningless little jobs. While they aren't quite so involving as, say, the characters in Settlers III, it's still a surprising bit of voyeurism that adds tremendously to the feeling that this is indeed a living, breathing city of your own design. The new interface also is a big improvement over the functional menus of SC2K.
