It takes the player back once more to the world of Eden where something strange has started to happen: The Aztecs have not accepted defeat lightly and by making a huge number of human sacrifices they have raised their own evil deity, forcing the player to return to Eden to fight it head on. As customary in the Black & White world, the player has the freedom to choose how they will rise to this new challenge by either countering the evil deity’s actions with good deeds or attempting to defeat him with extreme evil. Black & White 2: Battle of the Gods features a brand new creature, two new lands and four new miracles. An all new enemy unit AI system enhances the battle experience but players have to watch out for two new enemy armies and their ultimate weapon: the new enemy creature. There are also six new challenges and other new content for players of the PC game to explore. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. The addition of more creatures gives it more depth and will keep you amused that little bit longer, plus the plot is amusing and explores the darker side of Eden, what with the undead running around all over the place and everything.
  2. A better class of more of the same. [June 2006, p.92]
  3. Battle of the Gods is a straightforward expansion that adds some new, but not remarkably different, content to Black and White 2.
  4. Yet another collection of separate ideas, which do not work together. The simplistic and far-too-easy gameplay is insulting. Maybe someone with actual gaming experience could make Black & White finally work? [June 2006]
  5. If you acquire a copy and want more of the same then you'll find this expansion pack accommodating, just don't expect it to take you to heaven.
  6. Battle of the Gods could have used a touch of divine inspiration. [July 2006, p.67]
  7. Ultimately this is a very predictable and flat feeling expansion that may have the hardcore few blowing the dust of their original game and reinstalling it, but will certainly not be bringing new players or those that may have passed after buying the first game in the series.

    This only lasted about 4 hours of gameplay for me. Its good, but theres still no skirmish or online play. thats what we all want from b&w. This only lasted about 4 hours of gameplay for me.
