Don't bother with this pile of garbage. Peter Molyneux is a known overhyper and swindler. I paid $20 for this a year and a half ago and its the same pile of unfun micro management garbage that offers absolutely nothing new to the god game genre. And its just kills me to look at the same terrible ui and visuals that have plagued this game since its inception. The developers have abandoned ship and Molyneux is too busy with the mobile version. I could have invested that $20 in far better indie games. MULTIPLE far better indie games.
Who at 22Cans studios thought that the NEXT EVOLUTION of God games would be:
*Continuously deform terrain for hours so that there is FLAT space where you can build houses.
*Click your current houses so that your followers will go out and build houses on flat spaces, increasing population.
*Continue to deform terrain so you can discover 'cards' that let you research new things.
*Rinse, repeat, until you've unlocked all research, and rinse, repeat until your 'Civilization' looks a Rio De Janeiro ghetto that spans the entire world, is filled with huts on one side where you started, and manor houses on the other where your technology has advanced. Then realize the entire time you've been playing a glorified mobile time waster game where you wait for your houses to reach a certain time, then click on them to collect 'god power'. Then, wait until they're ready to be HARVESTED again, and click it again! OH BOY, SO MUCH FUN. I'M DYING FROM THE FUN. IT'S LIKE A PC VERSION OF FARMVILLE.
HONESTLY, Black & White 2 was far more fun than this pile of garbage. Why didn't Molyneux decide to make a Black & White 3, and fulfil all the hyped up promises and features that he NEVER put in Black & White 2?
Why Peter Molyneux or anyone at 22Cans could possibly think from the beginning that this monotonous, personality-less gameplay they developed could EVER turn into anything marginally fun to play is BEYOND me.
Terrible from inception, and with the way the games structured now, theres no way it could ever be fun.
I want my $20 back, but I know that'll never happen. And lets be clear here, I didn't buy this a month ago and now I'm freaking over the fact that the game hasn't changed entirely in a month. I BOUGHT IT ONE AND A HALF YEARS AGO.
Fun for the first 20 minutes.
