    This is a really fun game to play. It involves a lot of concentration and thinking. For once a game that is created where you are the evil dude and you are trying to take over the world. You play the evil genius and you ... Read Full Review

    Good Fun But Flawed In Many Ways

    Let's face it, who has ever wanted to play a baddie in a computer game? Everybody. When I heard about the game called Evil Genius I wanted to get it immediately, due to the fact you could play a baddie. At first I though... Read Full Review

    What we have here is a Dungeon Keeper style game but with a Dr. Evil from Austin Powers type storyline. Tons of humor...

    Evil Genius plays like the classic Dungeon Keeper games where you manage minions and a base with many types of rooms and gadgets used to take control of your enemeis and territories. Unlike Dungeon Keeper, Evil Genius br... Read Full Review

    Reviewer should have played it more.

    The problem I see with the Gamespot review is that the reviewer obviously didn't take very much time playing it. The complaints about tagging agents, heat, no manual save, defending your base, and others make no sense t... Read Full Review

    Veteran gamers should not pass this one up.

    A flawed piece of work - not as much fun as the demo!

    Let's get this straight before I start - I loved the demo of Evil Genius, read all the websites, and was totally caught up in the pre-release hype of the game. I was disappointed by the review of the game on Gamespot ini... Read Full Review
