so having only a handful kinda sucked. Same with the miracles
17 July 2014
Summary: I'm a big fan of the series. There was a HUGE improvement in the construction, but there seemed to be less things, and less game play. There were about 15+ choices for Creatures in the 1st game, so having only a handful kinda sucked. Same with the miracles, you had very few to choose from. Unlike the first game where there were dozens of fun miracles to play with. Kinda hoped for MORE things to do. Not better graphics and less things to do, customize, and play with.
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: Well, after the long wait it's finally here. Was the wait worth it, well kind of. It looks really nice, but to be honest I think it could still look better, but the atmosphere is still wonderful to immerse yourself in. Looks like they've pretty much copied the opening sequence of the original B&W to this one, which doesnt make it look like a step forward, especially given the time passed since then.
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.
Excerpt: In most games you can be be a well trained soldier, high ranking general, king or a skilled warrior. Lionhead threw this idea out the window and make the Black & White series where you play as a god, the highest power than can be. The minimum system requirements to run "Black and White 2" are as follows: -OS: Windows XP/2000 -Processor: 1.6 GHz Pentium 4 or above -Memory: 512 MB RAM -Hard Drive: 3.5 GB -DVD: 8 Speed -Video Card: 64 MB with 1.1 Pixel Shader -DirectX:...
Excerpt: The idea of the game is nothing more than excellent, but the game is not even close. You control a hand that can pickup villagers and rocks and all that you need to rise a civilization. It takes a long time for you to finish this game, so you better be patient, B&W2 doesn't have very good graphics but you can still have fun with the views in the game. The devil and the angel start to annoy you as you finish the maps.
Excerpt: The player has been an emperor in a number of games, he had been a hero, a survivor, a vampire, but how many times did he manage to become a God? EA Sports and Lionhead Studios had brought this concept into reality long ago. Now after a few years break, they have come up with a sequel to one of the most interesting games ever released. Even if this concept isnt as fresh as it was a few years ago, I couldn't resist the temptation to go for this game.
Pros: good concept, playing as the God, Greek civilization, great creature AI
Cons: a small game, low - level storyline, can't change civilizations
