Summary: The game is great so far but i have just start playing only about 15 hours but i do enjoy the creativity wish there was another option for world building that would make a lot more for play time. But all in all another great recommendation from team amazon.
Summary: Its hard to write this review to be honest, as I really want to like the game, and am playing it a lot, but there are just little things annoying me, and these all add up to a lesser gaming experience. I find the 'hand' control system now to be cumbersome, when trying to lay out a road when the town is busy usually means picking a person up by accident, unless you zoom right in to do it, meaning you cant see exactly where you want to go, and speaking of zooming etc, I...
Summary: I believe that Black and White 2 was a great game, however if you were looking for alot of the same gameplay from the original you will be a little disappointed. The plays like it did with original black and white engine, with a few key differences, such as building your town. in the original black and white your villigers were very easy to take care of, while I was playing this game however i found that more than half my time was spent having to micromanage my city...
Summary: Black and White had some great innovations that really set the bar for Lionhead. Black and White II has changed the paradigm, for better or worse. My biggest complaint is the lack of multiplayer. A game like Black and white has such huge potential for fun, exciting multiplayer yet it is strangely lacking, despite the fact that the first game supported it. They must have gotten lazy. Another mixed blessing is the gameplay changes.
Summary: I think the graphics are great making playing more enjoyable, and yes it crashes ALOT which is very frustrating I lock up about once an hour and my equipment is decent. The First Black & White crashed/locked up alot on my system(s)and this one is just as bad which is disappointing because you'd think after 4 years and all the problems with the original they'd have fixed that!
Good game but aspects that made the first game a step above the rest have been removed

Summary: If you played and liked the first one that dosnt meen that you will like this one. What made the first one stick out to me was the fantastic creature handling the game allowed. The second one removed alot of the creature things that made it so appealing in the first place. For instants the big creature battles you coold zoom in on and tell your creature what to do exactly. Besides things like that being removed the game feels like another plain RTS like all the rest.
Summary: *First off, all the patches & driver updates they recommended, did not stop this game from crashing my PC (something nothing else has ever done) during every game session. I have the ATI card they desired & met the standards. There was no online support other than reading what was already written. Yet this game was enjoyable enough for me to play it at every opportunity, rebooting as needed, until I completed it.
Summary: This game is very similar to BW1 with some added features. If you liked BW1, you will like BW2. You can build walls and pick up multiple people now. There are many more buildings you can build. You can build them yourself, without having to rely on your people. The demon and the angel are back. They are the highlight of this game to me. The visuals are improved and the popping of terrain as you zoom in and out has been significantly reduced.
