The B&W 2 record is a load of bull (aha!). The creatures in the first game had more complex AI than their sucessors did. B&W 2 was dissapointing in the extreme.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I agree. Moving sliders to tell your creature how you want it to act is not the most complex system I've ever seen.

Also, I would like to go to Ft Lauderdale. 1200 arcade games spanning multiple buildings? Lets have a GS field trip!

Everquest has a higher GDP than some small countries.

And do not the Creature series beat Black and White when it comes to character complexity? Those characters did not only have a complex neural net but also gens and body chemistry.

I like Peter Molyneux but B&W2 really disported me. One was less a God more a Mayor. What i like about B&W and populous where the miracles you could proform to solve the problems. B&W2 you magical abilities where so limited. Yeah is good that i have a army now and can build a city (or base whatever) but can i not do that in almost every game RTS like game? Even in B&W i could plan the city somewhat.

And why was Fable so freaking easy? Why not try to add a little depth?

But i have tested the new The Movies Demo and I'm starting to like that game so maybe Lionhead can better them self. It hard to believe that Peter Molyneux was so big only because started Bullfrog which is one of my old time favorite Game studios.

(But do not trust anything Peter Molyneux says. He Hypes a game unbelievably well. I think is because he believes so mush in his game and is not a conscious act.)

The last good game moleneux made was dungeon keeper. I have yet to see a game which matches its awesomeness. (DK2 sucked big time)

Did Moleneux really do that mush work on DK2?

Here was my gripe with B&W2.

I played the whole game as a good god. If anyone has played it then you know being good aligned takes a LOOOONG time!

So I get to the last level and what happens? The good spirit guy, the guy who advocates peace and is against fighting INSISTS that the only way I can finish the game is by building an army....


Wait what? Yeah! I was supposed to be able to play this game the way I wanted and I wanted to play the game as a good god! That means no armies and no aggression!

And then in the very last level I am forced to make an army (And not a little one, a HUGE one!) to finish the game.

I quit the game right there.


I am cursed with never being able to get to the end of a B&W game.

I have The Movies, it's a little boring after doing the same thing over and over 10 times, while trying to keep your stars out of trouble.

And I would highly recommend varying movie types between different script-star ratings and having more than one movie in production at a time. Having an awesome lot helps a lot, because then your scientists research faster. I have CGI graphics in 1961

Ahhah!

I didn't like that game because there was too much micromanagement. There also were not enough people to hire and the lot was too small.


Plus I don't like watching the same scripted sequence time after time for hours on end.

 ;)



It was an okay game though.

It would have been awesome if the game didn't define what was evil and what was not... but that may be asking a bit too much.
