Sim City DS is based on the PC Sim City 3000. This isn't just a port, though, as the game features full stylus-based controls, mini games and a new adviser character who helps you out when designing your city.
PLEASE don't be SO LAZY !!!!!
CAN YOU SAVE THE SCANS and REHOST THE SCANS YOURSELF IN THE FUTURE ??
everytime you just forward and post the LINK DIRECTLY here from "there"
and the overloaded bandwidth here always make the people "there" cannot see the scans I am serious, it is not funny
Hmm, RR7 looks pretty nice. Not the kind of jump I was hoping for, but that's Namco for ya this gen (the next gen). It looks rather similar to RR6, to be honest (though the environments seem a bit more Ridge Racer this time), but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The lighting seems better, though, and some of the details may be lost until viewed in person (RR6 could not be appreciated until that point).
Regardless, the game still has a very solid look and is 60 fps (no chance of anything else). It should look great.
I still don't "get" what's up with Namco, though. It's like they simply have no clue what to do with this new hardware. I appreciate the high framerates (seriously), but they are ignoring so many other features offered by these new machines.
rr7 doesn't look any better than rr6 from those scans -- rr6 looks much better than screens would lead you to expect, but i have to say i'm a little disappointed. i guess i should wait for bigger pics before i say too much. the environment shots we saw months ago were really nice, if they were real.
