  • Summary: In Babel Rising, gamers play as God, preventing humans from building the tower of Babel. Gamers can use their divine powers by hurling bolts of lightning, summoning massive earthquakes or unleashing gigantic floods upon the Babylonians.

Review: Babel Rising

New Gamer Nation
25 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall, Babel Rising benefits from a novel concept, yet there is little to appreciate in the execution. A cheery visual design can’t mask the reality that the game quickly becomes repetitive, while the control options simply don’t function as they should.

Babel Rising

Total Xbox
13 June 2012
  • Excerpt: As a god with elemental powers, you’re not gonna let the ancient Babylonians build towers that transgress on the skies. No, you’ll stop the puny humans by smiting them with extreme prejudice.
  • Pros: + Smiting thousands of heretics is enjoyable.
  • Cons: ? Gods can choose only two powers at once? Drag.

Expert Review

GameSpot
13 June 2012
  • Summary: Perhaps you remember the biblical tale of the Tower of Babel. Discouraged by the flood that wiped out most of humankind and not convinced that they should believe God's promise to never again flood the planet, Noah's descendants began to build a tower that they hoped would stretch to the heavens.
  • Pros: Unique concept, Frantic strategy action, Pleasant visual design
  • Cons: Repetitive, Awkward motion controls

  • Conclusion: We've got how many workers still left to slay before the level is complete? You want 40 priests killed? Really? Being an angry god just isn't half as pleasurable as you'd think it could be, it really isn't.

Review - Babel Rising

19 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Aesthetically pleasing and with some nice additions, this sadly ends up being little more than a redundant port. After ten minutes, you'll tire; by fifteen you'll bore; by the half-hour mark, you'll be jabbing at your own kneecap with a pencil just to 'feel' once again.

Babel Rising (Xbox 360)

  • Conclusion: Se sul piccolo schermo di un iPhone poteva regalare qualche sorriso, di certo ciò non accade sulle nostre console. Parole chiave? Noia e monotonia. Kinect fa cento passi indietro, e torna la voglia di prenderla a pugni. Proprio non ci siamo!

Test Babel Rising

Generation NT
18 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Babel Rising se montre plaisant sur un court laps de temps et n'a pas ce côté addictif que ce type de jeu apporte régulièrement avec lui. La prise en main avec Kinect propose beaucoup d'imprécisions dans le gameplay et la manette sera rapidement sollicitée pour remplacer la caméra.
  • Pros: Prise en main rapide, Utilisation des pouvoirs, Amusant les premiers niveaux
  • Cons: Vite répétitif, Un gameplay imprécis avec Kinect, Le prix du titre
