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: 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: Frankly I was a little worried about this title. The original was one of my favorite PC games in the early 90's. Subsequent console ports were pretty unplayable. And honestly the trailer video doesn't look that good. Plus the new play options are much more complicated than the elegantly simple original. But the verdict is: it works. It works well. It plays at least as well as the original. The touch screen on the DS is a huge plus.
