    This game have good mechanics. It's simple and fun. Plain terrain to which your people can Build and Expand. Or attack the enemies terrain and buildings. The objective? Win the Apocalypse in the end of each stage: a war between the peoples to rest only your people. The magics of this game are very cool. And the 5 gods and the 5 demons are all very cool too. Are many themes to play, in fantasy scenarios, medieval, sci-fi, Arabian nights and many more. It's fun. Have a progressive difficulty. And a long life to play.
    I recommend.

  1. It works well enough with a bit of practice, though, and 50 complete scenarios in the single-player challenge mode add up to plenty of time spent playing god. [Oct 2008, p.106]
  2. I imagine if you can get a group of friends together to check out multiplayer it'll help extend the life of the game quite a bit as well, and I definitely suggest it to both players that have never tried Populous before, and to those that remember the game from back in the day.

    Populous DS floats somewhere between a time-waster and a strategy game, but it never provides the addictive "hook" of either genre.
