Creatures: Exodus and Village Reviewed
7:56 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Games First recently posted a review of two Creatures titles, Exodus and Village. Published by Kutoka, both games are artificial life sims allowing players to dabble with the creation of creatures called Norns. Each Norn has a unique bio chemistry, brain, and digital DNA. As the Norns grow and learn from the player's instruction they eventually become adults and pass on their genetic code to their offspring. Games First gave the games 2 out of 5 stars, citing dated graphics and uninteresting gameplay.

The kids we surveyed were not interested in Creatures and unanimously said they'd prefer the new Tamagotchi or that it was not as good as several other pet-raising or animal-oriented games. Kids do love the whole idea of raising creatures, training and interacting with them. The problem here is partly that the Creatures are so ugly and the game is not pretty either. The other part of the problem was the mind-numbingly dull interactions. Creatures is a game that you "watch" more than "play," and what's there to look at is not all that pleasant.
