Populous DS

Games Asylum
5 September 2009
  • Excerpt: EA asked Japanese developer Genki to bring Populous to the DS for the Japanese market, but have ditched it by the wayside for the western world, leaving Rising Star to pick up the pieces. I don’t know about you, but my warning bells always ring when a publisher won’t even touch one of their own games. It’s like a parent trying to disown an ugly child.

Populous DS Review

Vooks
17 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Really old games are always better if you never go back and play them again. A tint of nostalgia washes away any and all blemishes, and you’ll only remember the good times you had with a game. I sort of wish I played Populous as a kid. I always wanted to, but never did. Populous is a name held in some sort of reverence; it’s a classic, and it was one of pioneers of the God-Game genre.

Populous review

Gameplanet
27 August 2009
  • Excerpt: The DS version of the classic Populous title is a nice trip down memory lane, but lacks the complexity and ease of control found with the original.
  • Pros: Strong multiplayer component, still the same populous experience for newcomers.
  • Cons: Dated graphics, limited gameplay on the DS.

Populous DS Review

  • Conclusion: Fans of Sim-type games or the RTS genre should delight in Populous’ old-school fun, but impatient gamers might grow bored fast, and no amount of divine intervention will convince them otherwise.
