Excerpt: I got this game a few years back from a mate of mine who bought the game but didn't want it. It is a very playable game for all ages and it definately keeps you entertained for hours.You have to type in words for objects that your creature comes in contact with and you try to make them understand you.The creatures live in quite a big world and trying to control the creatures takes a long time and can get frustrating.The creatures look like gremlins and they come in a...
Pros: entertaining,fun for all ages,cute creatures .
Excerpt: If looking after the Norns in Creatures 2 proved too big a responsibility, things in life kit 1 are a little easier. Creatures 2: Life Kit 1 allows you to have more than one "World Of Alba" saved at one time - bringing immediate stress relief, as having all your eggs in one basket can be worrisome. Especially as Norns simply attract trouble... There are plenty of new goodies to add ro the variations of life on Albia.
Pros: virtyal pet, great fun for kids and adults alike, watching development
Excerpt: The idea of having a virtual 'pet' which has the ability to think for itself is overwheliming and is a great idea for a game. Unfortunately, it's not as fun as it sounds, the Norns (your pets) are disobedient, annoying and suicidal. The only good point of the game is the large amount of sites offering Norns to download, these ranging from hideous mutants to mermaids. The game takes a while to understand, with genetics and scientific problems to take care of.
Pros: Artificial Life, loads of internet downloads
Excerpt: My father always said to me, 'Son, life is like a videogame. Sometimes the pace is fast, sometimes it’s slow. Your objectives may not always be clear but with perseverance, who knows? You too could be a high scorer.' Of course, he’s been senile for decades, but when a title like Creatures 2 appears it’s tempting to take his parental witterings to heart. Why?
Excerpt: A lot of people will have had a go, at some time, bringing up their own artificial intelligence-based creature. I thought I'd give creatures a try soon after getting into the way of my PC. It is easy to control and use. The graphics are very good and although it does get a bit boring at times, it is an interesting experiment.
Pros: interesting experiment into AI . Improves your typing .
Cons: can be slow and boring at times . You need to be quick and consistent in your "teaching"
Excerpt: Creatures II is the best game in the creatures series. The aim of the game is to look after creatures called Norns, by feeding them, making them breed, curing any illnesses and making sure that they don't decide to commit suicide by jumping off the edge of the ocean... there are many add ons and different kits available to buy and download from the creatures website. Kids and adults alike will love this game, and naming all the creatures that you can.
Excerpt: This is the kind of game that you'll either hate or you'll become completely addicted to and eventually have to bin because it takes over your life and clogs up your hard drive! The first creatures game was bad enough but the second is so full of bits and pieces to play with you'll eventually starve to death rather than part from it! For anyone who hasn't been on this planet for the past few years I better give you some idea of how this game works.
Summary: Ein PC Spiel, das aussieht wie ein Spiel für kleine Kinder brachte mich zur Verzweiflung. Ich bin ja eigentlich nicht ungeduldig aber das war echt zu viel. Bei Creatures 2 gibt es verschiedene Lebewesen, die auf den ersten Blick einfach nur süß aussehen, sich aber zu richtigen Nervensegen entwickeln.
Summary: In einer großen, aufregenden Welt warten sechs Norneier darauf, ausgebrütet zu werden: Sobald dein erstes Nornbaby geschlüpft ist, beginnt die Erforschungsreise durch Albia. Doch Gefahren lauern überall, und wenn deine Nornfamilie in Frieden leben soll, musst du ganz schön umsichtig vorgehn. Irgendwann findest du bestimmt den Genspleißer, mit dem du Albia ein für alle Mal von dem bösartigen Grendels befreien können.
Summary: Ich habe lange darauf gewartet, bis Creatures 2 endlich auf dem Markt war. Da ich gern Creatures 1 gespielt habe, war ich sehr gespannt, was die Hersteller sich diesmal einfallen lassen haben. Das es nicht leichter wird, war mir klar.*rettchen* Ich erhoffte mir aber einige Verbesserungen und vor allen Dingen etwas mehr Abwechslung in der Nahrung und auch von den Norntypen her.
