Darwinia, [/b]Introversion[/b]'s unique real time strategy title has received the review treatment from 2404.org. Brought to the Mac by Ambrosia Software, Darwinia tasks the player with saving the Lemming-like Darwinians from a killer virus which is spreading like wildfire across their digital world. Describing the game as "revolutionary and groundbreaking" 2404 gave Darwinia a 9.1 out of 10.

From the review:

Darwinia is beautiful. It is not beautiful in the way Half-Life 2 or Splinter Cell 3 is beautiful, but it is beautiful in its own right. Its world is fully realized, and every item, creature, structure, and landmass is well designed and fits into the game's concept flawlessly. That being said, there is nothing revolutionary from a technical perspective here, but in a way, anything more advanced would make the game feel less real. Because you need to imagine you are in a virtual computer world, and everything looks so cyberpunk, the graphics really make the game work. Also, the colors are bright and vibrant. The graphics may not be earth-shattering, but as in Half-Life 2 or as in Far Cry , sometimes you have to take a few seconds to stop playing and just look around in wonder.

As any old-school hacker who came of age in the 1200-baud days will attest, Darwinia represents exactly what we imagined the world inside a computer could look like.
