After playing SC3000 a lot over the past few days, must say that SC2013 definitely looks inspired by SC3K. But considering when SC3K came out, I would say its graphics are miles ahead.

This really is becoming a big sticking point to me... a game should be fun but it should also look nice.

I agree, maybe since this is their first game with the new glass box, that this is the sck3 of it, and there will be a SC4 one if you know what I mean, better graphics, more options ect.

I hope so, Frex. Because GlassBox sounds like an amazing, powerful engine for a city-sim. It's what they've put on top of that engine that is bugging me. The graphics are just way too bland...

Sim City 2013 could be so good but EA stuffed it so bad. With such a powerful engine they could do such a good Sim City 4 remake but they are rebooting a series they didn't need to reboot. They just needed to make Sim City 4.5 or some expansion pack. Or even make a new game just n upgraded SC4. Poor poor EA.....

I totally agree durf, they are wanting more money over quality with it, the graphics show it all :P

Yea, for sure. I wish they would have tried something a little more realistic... then it would have been fabulous. The simulation is great, so it is unfortunate.

But recent images seems to have improved the "baldness" of each city.

One thing that they have done well is the looks of the cartoony graphics. I won't be buying it but for those graphics they have done a good job.

There are certain games where I can definitely live with "cartoony" graphics (take Minecraft for example) but SC just isn't that kind of game, IMO.

One of the most recent images had a park that looked identical, or close to, the sports field from SC3000. So I am thinking perhaps that's where the inspiration for the graphics came from. I'll repost the picture if I find it...
