Ferrago has posted a review of Black & White 2, the strategy god sim from Lionhead Studios. Currently on its way to the Mac courtesy of Feral Interactive, B&W 2 attempts to give gamers more of what they liked about the first game while eliminating some of the less desirable aspects. Ultimately Ferago found the attempt to be a bit short of the mark, giving Black & White 2 a less than enthusiastic 69%.
From the review:
Once your town reaches a certain level of impressiveness the nearby settlements of the opposing side will up sticks and make their way to your town. Over time each and every settlement on an island can be taken over in this way. It's actually too easy to amuse yourself building up a stunning looking city only to find you have won over the entire island without breaking a sweat. The realisation of the gameworld is so spectacular that I found the city building option the most pleasing to follow, although by the time I was setting out on my fourth new town the lack of purpose other than to place more and more structures began to get boring. Things are much improved from before but as is common with the rest of the game a sense of purpose, and resulting reward, is still too fleeting and ephemeral to maintain the interest over a long period of time.To read the entire review and check out screenshots from the game follow the links below.
