Die hin- und herwuselnden Gläubigen sehen auf dem Mega Drive genauso putzig aus wie auf anderen Systemen. Dennoch sind zwei Wermutstropfen bei der Umsetzung zu vermelden. Erstens ist die Steuerung des Pointers ziemlich gewöhnungsbedürftig. Auch ohne Maus hätte man da einiges besser machen können. Und zweitens hüllt sich der Lautsprecher die meiste Zeit in tiefes Schweigen. Trotzdem: Populous II ist ein Muß für alle, die originelle Strategiespiele lieben.

These flaws prevent Populous II from being a perfect. Still, it is a very well rounded and compelling strategy game, one of the best of its category within the Genesis library and a captivating title even today. Thirty-two opponents take a while to defeat, and the replay value is pretty high thanks to a multitude of different maps and the individual distribution of experience. This sequel is an improvement on every single facet of an already perfect formula. Thus, verily, it is truly a godly game.

Spelet rekommenderas varmt till alla Megadrive-ägare, i synnerhet de med tendenser till storhetsvansinne.
