The One for ST Games
The role-playing element whereby you can tailor the progress of your god is a welcome addition to an excellent upgrade of an already brilliant example of games design and programming.
ST Format
If a game ever deserved the label "epic", Populous 2 does. The seemingly interminable waiting, the hype, the superlatives, they're all totally and utterly justified. Even if you bought Populous (and who didn't?), get your mitts on Populous 2. You know it makes sense.
Atari ST User
So, it all boils down to the fact that Populous 2 is a damn fine game, worthy even of a real god's attention. Now, where's the review copy gone? It's dinner time here and I just have to have another go.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Auch auf dem Atari ST ist das Meisterstück der Bullfrog-Programmier ein feiines Spiel geworden. Viele einstellbare Optionen, jede Menge Inseln, auf denen man sich austoben kann (eine schwerer und komplizierter als die andere), und ein reichhaltiges Sortiment an Katastrophen garantieren langanhaltenden Spielspaß.
Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Im Jahre 1992 schlug die Stunde der alten Griechen: In 1.000 grafisch und soundmäßig weiter aufgepeppten, antiken Digi-Welten darf man sich diesmal als Zeus' Sohn mit einem erweiterten Optionsangebot und noch mehr Katastrophen (Feuersbrünste, Wirbenstürme, Seuchen, etc.) herumschlagen. Doch nicht nur Präsentation und Gameplay wurden verbessert, auch die Steuerung hatte man gestrafft und damit übersichtlicher und einfacher gemacht.
