Will you be an evil or benevolent deity? From the creative mind of god game developer Peter Molyneux comes Black & White 2, the sequel to the critically acclaimed hit Black & White. In this strategy game, you reprise your role as a powerful deity in search of a following and return to the once idyllic world of Eden, where the discovery of weaponry and warfare has tainted the beautiful landscape. With the help of your gigantic Creature that you raise from infancy, you must earn the respect and worship of the natives. How you choose to do that, whether through nurturing them or terrorizing them, is up to you.
The player will have many choices to make in Black & White 2. Once you and your creature have convinced the people that you are a god, you then have to decide if you are going to care for your believers, building them huge cities that are beautiful and safe, or if are you going to rule the land causing death and destruction by leading vast armies into battle.
As players enter this warring world they will have the option to make tribes coexist peacefully, encouraging villages and towns to grow into metropolises, or prompting them to inflict their will upon others by creating and commanding large armies that seek to dominate and conquer.
You have a Creature to do your bidding and train as you will, and you may rule over your people as you wish. This evolved Creature can help you nurture their communities grow into huge, towering cities. Or you may use death, suffering, and fear. The Creature has been massively advanced since the original Black & White, and now has a vital role as a military leader and command unit. He can learn strategies, lead armies into battle, and is the ultimate battlefield weapon himself, armed with many powerful new attacking and shielding Miracles.
The epic world of Black & White is yours for the asking. But remember-if you want peace, prepare for war.
  • Wage massive wars, sieges and battles or use your skill and power to keep the peace.
  • Discover and use new Epic Miracles, including the ground-ripping Earthquake and volcanoes, which cause rivers of lava.
  • Research and create new forms of weaponry, from swords to bows to siege machines. Build and design unique defensive gates and walls.
  • Control and marshal huge and varied armies.
  • Create and control settlements that include housing, farming, and many other buildings like fountains and lush gardens (if you're Good) or stocks and guillotines (if you're Evil).
  • Use multiple tools to help train and improve Creatures. As well as using sticks, whips, and feathers, players can create their own unique tools.
  • Weather systems such as rain, snow, mists, and fog.
  • Journey through 10 lands homing each of the five tribes.

 Lionhead Studios yet again delivered a wonderful game

| | See all Kenpod's reviews (1)

Black & White 2 has been labeled as a 'god genre' game, and it is godly in both genre and gameplay. This immense sequel to the first successful game Black & White also by Lionhead Studios.

Gamplay: Simulation of a god; creating buildings, casting miracles, commanding your creature (your way of interacting with the world through a creature or something?!)

Sound: Brilliant music, ties perfectly with the gamplay. If you're good you have calm music, but if you're evil you have war-like and evilish music.

Longetivity: Probably has amazing replayability, seeing as you can be good or evil, or a bit inbetween. It also has the option to choose a creature, so I suppose you could play again with a different creature and a different alingment in mind.

Graphics: Superb realistic graphics. The water is brilliant, the people are brilliant, the grass is HUGE compared to the people but that casts off a brilliant effect. The sky is beautiful during the whole day (has a night and day system, by the way). The creature has fur and his eyes even move. It's a brilliantly designed and a well detailed game in every aspect.

Script: The speach within the game occurs when your conscience (good and evil people that pop up to hint/help you. They're rather like tutorial gods, sorta thing)

Overall: A brilliant game, I aspect many of you will drown many hours into this game. Myself? I have completed it twice, once with good, once with evil. And will most probably play again! I loved this game a lot.

Thanks for reading.

 Heavenly and Hellish!

Lionhead Studios have always tried to be different and push what can be done both technically and usability wise and this game does not fail but does have a few problems.

Peter Molyneux takes the AI up to the next level and has a much more interactive creature, which some fans hated because now you can have direct control. But I liked this new interaction because it made the creature easier to mould into the good/evil one you need. The graphics are kicked up a level and this seem to be one of the main improvements, but the miracles have been limited and it seems this game has a smell that EA had it rushed to help sales. Lionhead Studios has moved to work with Microsoft and I hope they never go back to EA because Microsoft offers more funding and less interference.

Great game but does not offer as many new elements as B&W, oh I forgot and now you get to control an army in B&W2.

 Brillant but lacking one thing

The game is brillant much better than the first, this time you can build massive armys to attack your ememys aswell as your creature.You can peform the most godly of miracles from healing your own troops to sending a metor stirke at your enemys and to top it all off wonders these huge building can cause earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes and even summon a banshee.But now i must come to a little thing extra the game needs and i'm sure alot of people will agree with me a sandbox mode where don't have to do missions and complete objectives, where u can build what ever you like and do what ever you want.In all this game is a must have

 A nice game

This game has everything. If you enjoyed the original Black and White, then you will love this game.

The graphics are brilliant if you have a good graphics card and the choices you can make are amazing.
