  • Summary: ...And lead us not into temptation - But that's the whole point! Indulge yourself. Take on the amusing role of a soul snatcher who wields omniscient power. Play Heaven & Hell: convince the cute and cuddly Earth dwellers that you're the long-awaited Redeemer who'll bring salvation to their chaotic world. Let no one doubt the truthfulness of your message. Your faithful fanatics launch rotten fruits and vegetables at opposing prophets, while your prophets pummel doubters into holy submission. Alternatively, use miracles and plagues to lead the disbelieving unto the path of the righteous. In this way, your flock shall grow and grow and grow... [CDV Software] Collapse

  1. It's a fun loving mellow game that everyone can get hooked on, and I can honestly say that it is one of the most enjoyable games I've played in a while.
  2. While it might not be the true land of milk and strategic honey, Heaven & Hell is a reasonable enough entry in a fairly small pantheon.
  3. The simple and scaled down options seem to be made for newer players into this kind of market, but the confusing nature of the game if you don't play the campaign first can quickly get frustrating.
  4. 43
    One of those games that tried to step in the follow in the footsteps of innovative god games like "Black & White" or the classic "Populous," but is woefully cursed with poorly executed gameplay.
  5. A bland experience with nothing innovative to free your mind from concentrating on the annoying aspects of the gameplay.
  6. 40
    There are some good ideas in Heaven & Hell, but they rarely end up making for a fun game. Completing a mission feels more like work. Add a number of interface issues and plain old bugs, and you've got a pretty solid disappointment.
  7. Witless, repetitive, and utterly devoid of interesting strategy elements. [Dec 2003, p.142]
