  • Summary: Ubisoft's Babel Rising is the next-generation version of the popular iPhone game of the same name. In Babel Rising, gamers play as God, preventing humans from building the tower of Babel. Gamers can use their divine powers by hurling bolts of lightning, summoning massive earthquakes or unleashing gigantic floods upon the Babylonians. Developer Mando Productions has breathed new life into the game with 3D graphics and competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes. Expand

    A good idea that needed a better execution. Gets boring after half an hour. [August 2012, p.85]

    Little bit of fun, a little bit sadistic but mostly dull & dry – you should skip the PC version and try the tablet for sure. [Nov 2012]

    Babel Rising is equally boring in Survival, competitive and cooperative modes.

    It could have been a nice game. The concept was original and entertaining, however the execution was flawed.. In each stage you have 4 attacks with which to destroy your uppity former followers, and two biblical disasters. However this gets monotonous and in the early stages at least you do not get to pick your attacks. I have experienced (and heard others) complain of a bug in the game which does not allow you to use the same disaster twice in a stage, even if you have it charged it up. Such an obvious bug should not have been allowed in the release version. If they ever fix it, I would purchase this game for Expand

    The player has the power of a God but the eyesight of a cave fish. The God's mission is to prevent the random few followers from reaching the top of the pyramid with a certain type of pot, but the ability to see said pot is not at all easy. Plays like a free tablet game, no depth of story, no replay value. Expand

    A "Coffee break" game, you can only play it for five or so minutes before you get bored. With the very limited choice of attacks and lack of enemy types the game will struggle to keep your attention. 1/10 Expand
