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-├Ągare, i synnerhet de med tendenser till storhetsvansinne.
