I can't think of any other game which has grabbed me as hard as Populous. It has everything and I find it very hard to think of any criticism of the product.
Fancy playing the greatest role of all time? Then play God in Populous. The greater your population, the more power you can use to terraform land to your own advantage. But it's not all one-sided - your opposition has similar abilities. You can even play a friend via modem. Eight land types and thousands of worlds to explore.
Fazit: Wer “Populous“ noch nicht hat, bringt sich um den Genuß, eines der besten Spiele zu besitzen.
Populous was hailed as a classic when it appeared a couple of years ago. Those doing the hailing were absolutely right. its easy to use but tough to play and it draws you in. The power of being a god is too much to resist. If you haven't got Populous, now is the perfect time to rectify this. How ever, with Populous 2
now out you might want to spend the extra - look at our review on page 30 to see how far it's come. Buy one of them - at least! - and achieve immortality.
