This game is my personal classic favourite. It was the first full game I bought back in 2006 and since then I've had a lot of nostalgic fun with it.
The overall the graphics are still satisfactory in terms of the art style, the gameplay is solid and fun, and the overall story is positively parodistic with good pretty good humour and fun.

I enjoy this, many more people should too.

Amusing but has not been updated for a very long time - doesn't even properly support widescreen monitors.

Sometimes a bit confusing - read the manual.

Evil Genius was recommended to me Via by steam, I took a look at it and it got overwhelmingly positive reviews on all fronts, and considering this is a Old PC game from 2004 it dose not disappoint at all. I had quite abit of fun while playing this game early on but problems soon arise later in the mid and end game that made me question things somewhat.

Positives
+ Classy 007 feel: If you ever wanted to play a bad guy in a bond film this is perfect for ya
+Build a secret hideout with a volcano and everything: Constructing your secret hideout was loads of fun I leterally spent hours building my base figuring out whats what
+Trophies of Evil: Steal Excaliber, the Million Dollar, Rare Artifacts, the game makes you feel more like a evil genius the more items you collect
+Comedic Cartoonish feel: The game has a very cartoonish feel to it being a satire of the Spy genre, at times I had a big grin on my face from some of the weird antics and slapstick in the game

Negatives
-No Custom Evil Genius: You get 3 evil genius’s to pick from and that’s it theirs no hidden one or unlockable ones or even a custom made evil genius of your own image, The Evil genius is suppose to be the Players Avatar so why cant we do something with em?
-The Evil Genius Dose….Nothing?: Yeah you figured with you being an Evil Genius and all you could do laods of things, sadly you cant, you only instill loyalty in your minions and increase perception…and laugh evily…..and that’s it, you cant do anything yourself, you don’t help out in any way, you often wonder why your evil genius is there.
-Money Generation is a Pain: Gaining money in this game is kind a Risk and Reward kinda thing, you send minions out to gather money and not even 5 mins later they will be dead and they generate very very little money even if you send your best guys.
-The Forces of Justice are relentless….why have they not bombed your island yet!?: Throughout the game the enmies, the forces of justice, will send various agents to try and either ruin your base or generate heat (Threat), that’s fine and all, but even at 0 heat with all the countires in the world they send COUNTLESS Agents to your base, even the Super Agents, it makes you question why they haven’t send the military out to bomb your base yet.
-Minions are….useless: I understand that Minions are suppose to be braindead loyal bees of your hive, but if an enemy agent is inside your base your minions will not Attack them AT ALL unless you tell them to, even with alarms going off and everything they will never attack an Agent. Ontop of that your minions are VERY needy like SIM Level Needy if they aren’t all having a good time they will just up and leave. Also Only CERTAN Minions will do Certan tasks, AND Your only allowed 100 minions total in the game, and with 13 Minion classes in the game…do some math.
-Traps, Turrets, camera, alarms all useless: You have the Ability to make Traps and Turrets and such to get rid of Pesky enemy agents….but 1 problem. Even if they’re perfectly disguised higher level agents will destroy them, and if you don’t set the trap mechanisims correctly some of your traps wont work, lets not forget your minions may trip them as well. Also Enemy Agents can spot turrets regaurdless if they are disgused or not, Cammera only serve to alert The Player when someone is in the base, and the Alarms don’t do anything they don’t even alert your minons (unless you manually set the conditions to Yellow or Red Alert).
-Tourests are Trolls: Throughout the game high class tourests will vist your island, they only serve to generate heat if they just so happen to stumble apon your secret base, You CAN Build a hotel to occupy them but chances are you wont have the power, money, or minions to keep them working constantly, even then they tend to ignore it.
-Mid and End Game Brutal: Towards the end of the game you will get a swanky new island and such, its bigger then the other island leaving more room for customized building, but theirs a catch: You have to build a base from the Ground up ALL OVER AGAIN, and chances are you'll have only 20 worker minions to build your new base, Added ontop of their SIMs Needs and The Enemy Agents Relentlessly hounding you and BAD Money Generating it'll take FOREVER to rebuild your new base, add to the fact you may loose all your specality Minions for they will leave or get killed, and you'll loose some Rare Loot because the Enemy agents will steal it.
-Bad UI: due to bad menu interface and such you wont even figure out how to manuely save your game

Yeah while I listed a ton of very bad things about it it dose have its charm and such and I did have some fun playing it, and at the price of 10 bucks its not so bad, If you’re a base builder kinda player and wanted to play a villan and don’t mind some old school problems then you will have fun. For others…well lets pray that IF an Evil Genius 2 comes out they fix these problems.

D+

An absolute classic, a dungeon keeper-esque management of your evil lair (with equal comedy style) as you continue on you way to world domination. defending agents agents that try to sneak in with your minions or an assortment of comedic traps (Who can resist a big red button?) and take them away for equally comic interrogation.

While the game isn't sandbox you can easily save at certain points and hold progression of the story. but if you want a good base management game, with a lovely style, you can't go wrong here.

quick note: you may need to hunt around for a patch to bring the game up to modern resolutions.

There's nothing like trapping unsuspecting agents of justice in an inescapable trap to make an old evil emperor feel.. EVIL.

It's an older game so it has its..... charms. But I think it is fantastic. Very deep game with a lot of cool features. Looks great too, looks like a stylized modern game. An all time favourite.

I've put hundreds of hours in this game. I've had tons of fun with it.

Now I'm still waiting for Evil Genius 2 (and yes, I'm still optimistic).

Heyyo,

Evil Genius is a realtime strategy game with a twist... where you try and take over the world as an Evil Genius from the 70's. Think of Austin Power's main antagonist... Dr. Evil. You get to be him and it's glorious. How many hours have I spent on the gog.com release before picking it up on a Steam sale because I love this game so much? I dunno, but a lot lol. :)

If you wish to play it in Widescreen? Just follow this Steam Community thread:
http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=904360

If you've ever played Startopia, Dungeon Keeper or War for The Overworld? You'll know what kind of game to expect.. and to enjoy a lot. Buy this game for yourself or someone who enjoys a cunning and challenging game with a touch of silliness. ;)

I bought this game after savign for a month back when I was 14. At teh time Rome total war I had coem out and this game. I was hyped for rome and decided to get this, though still provides me with so much pleasure and love I came back when I saved another month's earning. I went into fry's and found it. IT was half off for some reason and I bought a bag of candy for the occasion. Coming home I installed it and played it for hours. One of the most enjoyable experiences, so much fun. It's a game that the developers made for laughs, and by thor's hammer it does. One of the last true screw around games that was half decent. I love it, I played hours without steam and played acouple with steam. And after writing this review more then likely going to be playing it. Fun, energetic, and puzzling, Evil genius' will get yoru brain pumping in some spots and laughign as you execute your prisoners, minions and tourists.

So sad that as of last week I still played this game on cd, yes the org cd... The hundreds if not over a thousand hours I've put into this game. Then i see it on steam (compleatly unware) and have to build my game hrs all over again like I'm new. Great game. From the little comedy antics to the satisfaction to see your gold has filled the room. HEY GAME MAKING DEV PEOPLE. Make an EVIL GENIUS 2 (this time add a sandbox island).

Let me say one thing first. I have played and loved Dungeon Keeper 1,2 as well as Evil Genius. Saying Evil Genius is a clone of Dungeon Keeper is to me like saying Chess(EG) is a clone of checkers(DK). There are similarities but one is a lot deeper and harder to master than the other. There is nothing before or since like Evil Genius. There have been attempts to do something like Dungeon Keeper with mixed results. No one has to my knowledge has even tried with Evil Genius. It is also the only game I know where so many people(like me) are crying for a sequel. The game does have some flaws involving minion, space and gold management. The learning curve is very steep at some points and it is not always intuitive how you do some simple things like interrogate a prisoner. Even with the bugfix patch it can be a little unstable. For the first time through, expect that you will have to go to the glossery and the internet for help and that you should save often. Even on easy mode, Marimba Mamba (the weakest superagent) is most likely going to wipeout many of your high level minions, steal some of your ill gotten goodies and blow up your power stations while you are checking on an act of infamy. On the plus side there is a lot of humor and some replayability. The graphics are dated but it still looks good. It is worth buying this game, even at its non-sale price.

For a very narrow audience, but I got everything I could ever want out of it. Absolutely amazing, I could not believe how many things I could do to those pesky agents intruding my base. It was absolutely staggering

The controls are terrible, but that's what the game is based on - you cannot control your minions. You have to create an infrastructure that will be able to defend itself, in the meantime executing your subordinates to kill time, whenever you aren't taunting prisoners of course. I don't think they should be as clunky as they are, but they'd get away with it in 2004.

A must have for any aspiring evil geniuses out there.

I've played this little gem a lot. So i just bought it on Steam to have it here too, now that it's on sale finally :-)

What is it? It's overlooked, underhyped and underrated. Sadly.
Take my beloved Dungeon Keeper (one of my alltime top10), take out the evil high fantasy stuff and put in the more-or-less real evil villain and CIA-stuff. And voila!
It looks like "Tropico" and "The Sims" made love with "Dungeon Keeper" and "No One Lives Forever" in a gruesome gangbang and this is the outcome. "Dungeon Keeper" being the gameplay though, the rest defined the optics/theme.

I won't dive into depths here, because there is said MORE than enough about this pearl.

tl;dr:
You've missed this 10yrs ago but are into RTS? Go get it!
You've missed this 10yrs ago but are not into RTS? But you like evil villains and games that make a parody of themselves? Give it a try, it's just a few bucks anyway!

It even runs fine on Win8.1.1, and with some easy "hacks" in FullHD (or more or less) in Borderless Fullscreen. What else can one wish nowadays?

Of course you have to value gamplay over optics, because the graphics are somehow dated. But it's not THAT bad, just don't expect Skyrim.

Stop reading, start buying!
