One of my favorite games of all time. Where other games similar to Dungeon Keeper failed, Evil Genius succeeded in so many ways while also creating a world that was unique in itself. The goal of the game is to build an evil secret base on a deserted island and further your plans of world domination. Be careful, however, for the forces of good will do everything in their power to stop you from fulfilling those dreams. You control everything from a birds-eye view where you build rooms and objects via "blueprints" which Minions then proceed to purchase and place for you. The game overall is very smooth and challenging. After all these years, I still haven't managed to beat the game and I bought it when it first came out! All in all, I love this game and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to rule the world and throw foolish special agents into giant mixer bowls.

Old game, but still manages to be fun and entertaining for hours on end. Great game for the value. Wish there was a Evil Genius 2.

This game is nto what you'd expect. it is quite fun, and very challenging. it is extremely addicting too. you'll start playing it then all of the suddden you played all night and the sun is coming up. there are things that will be frustrating with it soemtimes, and the late game is extremely hard to get through. but its worth every penny.

Evil Genius is a resource management game, similar to Dungeon Keeper (as many have already mentioned).

While the game is a bit old, and some of the controls, graphics, and mechanics are dated, the game is still pretty fun to play.

You have a limited amount of space to build your evil lair, room by room, on a grid system. You can send agents around the world to sabotage, steal, kidnap, and make you money, all of which help you reach your main goal of world domination.

Meanwhile you have to keep your Evil Genius safe in his lair by keeping snooping special-agents out of your base with traps and guards, and by distracting them with a fake hotel front.

The game is a little short, and there are only 3 maps, but I still do recommend the game. Whatever shortfalls the game has are madeup by the gameplay, silly humor, and style.
