3.0 out of 5 stars Hugely ambitious but emphasis slightly flawed, 15 April 2001
This review is from: Black & White (Video Game)
This is a hugely ambitious game with absolutely stunning graphics. The cuts scenes look fantastic and the "missions" throughout the game are interesting. However, the micromanagement of your villages becomes really tedious during the later stages of the game. Also bear in mind despite all the previews etc, the emphasis of the game is less on your creature (tiger, cow, gorilla etc) but more on your management of your villages whose villagers are always moaning about something - food, wood, grain, breeding, houses etc Jeeez!!! The temptations is to destroy them all with a fireball but you can't expand without them. You seem to spend half the time digging up trees, planting fields etc without actually playing! This really does become tedious after a while.
Nice game with lovely graphics, but there's too much micro managment of your villages for it to be an all time great.
Bear in mind that you need a powerful graphics card to play this game with maximum detail. As a rough guide, I have a Duron 950Mhz with Geforce2MX and I am forced to play at 800x600 with high detail level settings. You've been warned!
