Black and White 2 is very demanding, but the graphics are wonderful. Being a god and expanding the Greeks is great fun, and if long strategy games are your thing than this game isn't too bad. Good story line, and the choice between going down the good or evil path dramatically changes how ai interacts. A few negatives things to watch out for:
- The beginning ‘tutorial’ cannot be skipped. For experienced gamers like myself, this is SO frustrating, as it is VERY long and same old same old tutorial ie how to move the mouse!!! Grrrr…
- The levels are long and slow, too slow, it takes a good few hours per level, but the level's don't necessarily differ too much from each other.
- Battles/armies are weak. Basic melee/range/siege weaponry, nothing more nothing less.
You also get to control your own ‘monster’, this is quite fun but again does get a little boring after a while, you can choose at the beginning of the game between a lion, a wolf, an ape or a cow (a cow??). Wonders are also pretty cool, but require a lot of tribute (like experience or bonus points I guess) to research/unlock. And the conscience good or evil guys are pretty funny, but you'll have to play it to understand what I mean.
All in all a pretty good game, will keep you occupied for days!
