    Very simplistic, and very addicting! Hard to believe it's strategy as well! I obtained this game from the steam network.

    Very good game! Hard to believe it hasn't been made yet. Starts off a little slow, but once your research gets up there it becomes very fun! I obtained this off of the steam network, the very same dis...

    In an industry that relies so heavily on used franchises, it's great to see something completely fresh come along.

    Darwinia is possibly one of the most pleasantly unique games I've ever had the opportunity to play. It's almost in a genre by itself, a sort of RTS tied to automatic AI with base-building elements and...

    Don't judge it by its graphics or its sound, but by its unique gameplay that it has to offer.

    Gameplay: Overall this game is down right fun. There are very few menus to deal with and is pretty easy to pick up and play. It offers some challenging strategies in an unique style. Graphics: B...

    Darwinia is a game I would not have heard of thanks to Valve and Steam, and it's a great game.

    Ahh, Steam. Most of us know it as a fantastic program that brings Valve games and games from other publishers together in perfect harmony. Often imitated, but never duplicated. But until 2006, Stea...

    Harkens back to Old-School era gaming!

    I saw a review for Darwinia a few months ago but was very skeptical. I noticed it in Best Buy the other day for $9.99 and figured 'what the heck'.....why not try it out. I am SO glad I did. This game ...

    I bow down before it, both for it's form, and it's wonderfully quirky soul.

    I’ve been playing computer games since I was six. I don’t know how many games I have played. More than I can remember anyway, but I’ve never played anything like Darwinia. From the eye-catching box an...

    Rated on March 20, 2005 by Blue_Tomato

    Interesting game, however it makes me wonder wether they chose the simple pixelated graphics design for artistic reasons (which many reviewers seem to think) or to save money and time doing real graph...

    Old school game. Very old school, but that's where it's best features are.

    Rated on February 08, 2006 by scottwilkins

    Simple 3D interface that get's it high rating from playability, not visuals. The visuals are just enough to get the job done, which is more than plenty. the game survives off a simple "you against t...

    This was indeed a very unique game when I first started playing it. You first start playing and you think, wow, this game is pretty cool! An hour goes by and you wonder what will happen next. Two hour...
