Ihr sucht euch ein Add-on? Habt ihr den Bericht nicht wirklich gelesen? – Diese Add-on ist das i-Tüpfelchen aller Add-ons. Es sind stunden lange Faszination geboten die, einem wirklich den Schlaf rauben können. Die ganze Grafik, bis auf die Menschen denen man im Allgemeinen keine wirkliche Beachtung schenkt, ist hervorragend. Der Sound und die Soundanimationen sind grossartig und stechen hervor. Das Gameplay schlägt das ganze jedoch um Weiten. Noch nie ist mir ein Spiel unter gekommen (bis auf verschiedene Shooter), welches diese Bewegungsfreiheit bot, wie dies Black & White und dem dazugehörigen Add-on zu Stande bringt.

Black & White fans will enjoy this expansion. Without management of all those villages, Creature Isle doesn't feel the same, but for newcomers and impatient gamers that's a plus. Now you can focus entirely on training your creature. Just try not to get all sentimental when you're watching it raise its own little critter.

B&W was a seriously fun game for me. Creature Isle leaves much to be desired. Some people think Creature Isle is a good expansion set, and it is. It adds a new and interesting dimension to the reality built in B&W. With its lopsided gameplay and extra abstraction, it isn't the self-contained experience others have made it out to be. In the end it comes down to how much you value the contributions of your creature. I suppose I enjoyed the puzzle solving techniques in B&W more than raising the creature, whom I realize I viewed as more of a fun distraction and a moderately helpful tool. Before you play Creature Isle, this will be something you must decide for yourself. To ultimately determine the value of Creature Isle, this decision will make all the difference in the world.
