Gamesradar.com has posted a well written first look of SimCity 4. The preview gives a good overview of what’s been said so far and we also get to hear some comments from Maxis’ General Manager Lucy Bradshaw.

SimCity 4 is employing 3D technology, but we are still using a constrained camera. Our cities are extremely poly-intensive, so rather than going to a higher-end system spec, we want to give all the positive impact of moving to a 3D graphic system without the inherent leap in required system specification, hence the constrained camera…

Nothing new of major interest is revealed, neither are there any new screenshots. Still worth a look!
