Summary: I was a HUGE fan of the original PC game, so I had to give this a shot for my new 3DS. It's good, and it's only $12ish for the game. And I don't regret buying it, I can definitely get my $12 worth out of this game. But, in my opinion, they made quite a few unneeded changes to what was already a great, playable game. It's fairly easy to pick up for those who already know the gameplay, but I can't help but think they really designed it for those who liked the original.
Summary: If you love to feel the power of having your own army of people below you and being a god then you will love this game,Very fun and easy to learn if you actually do the training.So listen at the start or be doomed !
Summary: Classic Bullfrog God-Sim gets to ported to the DS by Japanese devco Genki and despite the addition of new modes - including a full fledged Single Player mode - and feature sets from all 3 previous Populous titles, the game itself is unfortunately undermined by the developers decision to split the gameplay over 2 screens with the action on the top screen manipulated by a wireframe representation on the bottom screen. It just feels too awkward.
Summary: populous ds is a first god video game. gameplay is simple. just make a flatland for people to build houses.then order people to fight against demons. it is a classic game but too simple, so you maybe get boring easily.
Summary: 1. It is very similar to the original PC, but with touch screen controls. 2. Many, many hours of fun and gameplay if you like the idea of Sim City meets Act Raiser. 3. If you didn't understand that last comment you are too young to like playing this. 4. Pretty amazing graphics for a DS game. Lots of new god/goddess abilities from original. A few negatives are: 1. Only a few save slots, one for each mode, free play, mission, etc. 2.
Summary: Negative reviews kept me from purchasing this game when it first came out. It looked fun, but I had never played the original Populous so I had no idea what it was going to play like. Furthermore, I hadn't heard anything about the publisher (Xseed) at the time to know if they had a good reputation. As time passed I learned that Xseed was publishing some great games (Retro Game Challenge, Rune Factory: Frontier, Little King's Story, Avalon Code, etc.
