Summary: Overall, The Promised Land is a thoroughly enjoyable game. It presents a good challenge and kept my interest throughout. The music was enjoyable and provided enough variety to not get too repetitive. The graphics were believable and provided a colorful and vibrant landscape. The game may not have you coming back a few years from now, but it will definitely have you busy for a few weeks.
Excerpt: The Promised Land is the newest title from Alawar Entertainment. The new strategy game tasks you with building up a civilization using the resources of a foreign land with a limited amount of crew members from your ship. The crew's ultimate goal is to find the Spring of Eternal Happiness and claim it for their home country. For now, you'll have to gather food and supplies and build up a variety of buildings to house all of the materials you'll need on your journey.
