    I hate this game

    I do. I absolutely Hate this game. It is the same thing over and over again and it irritates the living daylights out of me. I must admit that the Idea was fantastic. Controlling a Civilization as a God. And added to tha... Read Full Review

    To much to do in the game.

    Gameplay: 7 All you pretty much have to do is take care of a pet and do a few quests. I said that it takes 1-2 hours to learn what to do because you seem to always be going through a tutroial in the game. Graphics:... Read Full Review

    Black and White is awesome, but only at first.

    I have played all the way through Black and White, and I have to say that I thought that it was cool for a while. However, it got very boring very fast. The whole concept of playing God is a great idea for a game, but ... Read Full Review

    It is beyond being a god, this game teaches strategy and how all your actions have consequences.

    It takes things way beyond the old game Populous by moving into an entirely 3D world. Like Populous you play as a god who's trying to convert as many followers as possible. There are eight different tribes in Black & W... Read Full Review

    It sucks!

    I was very happy once I bought it, but later it wasn't what I expected. The graphics are pretty lousy. The story is like this sentence, it stinks like a cow pie in an oven. At first the story made sense, but then it was ... Read Full Review
