3D realistic cities is a bit beyond the state of the art in GIS, let alone
open-source GIS. The most you are likely to find is extruded footprints.
Please allow me to recommend instead that you look at projects like ours,
the Virtual Terrain Project ( http://vterrain.org/ ). The VTP already does
fairly realistic virtual cities, is open-source, cross-platform, and while
it isn't a full-blown GIS, it can take any sort of GIS data as input and do
many GIS-like operations.

I am doing a proyect about 3D realistic virtual cities. I have to choose a
GIS OpenSource program (for example: Jump, uDig, qgis, grass, ...). With
choosed program I will do 3D plugins.
I have read a lot about these program and it's the moment to choose the
program based in some criterias: interoperability, portability, easiness to
develop plugins, ...
