  • 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

    Babel Rising is a solid buy, through and through...as long as you're not expecting a solid Kinect experience.

    Cool concept and good ideas, but Babel Rising doesn't deliver any long-term enjoyment.

    At $10, the price is fine, but if you enjoyed the demo, it would be best to wait for this to go on sale.

    As a creative take on the "Tower Defense" principle, this "Tower Prevention" simply doesn't work out.

    Not everything turns out to be as good it should: Babel Rising is a really good game on the iOS/Mobile environment, but loses part of its spirit in its consoles version. With a boring and linear gameplay and an insufficient Kinect control-schema, it represents a missed chance in XBLA market.

    Babel Rising has an interesting concept that never really comes to fruition. With only fifteen levels and a lack of online play, Babel Rising never even comes close to reaching the heavens.

    Sadly, too often your powers feel anything but godly.

    Fraco, jogabilidade horrível, e não muito interessante, em certos aspectos seus gráfico são bonitinhos porém um amontoado de controles chatos e animações irritantes. Expand

    Can't I just confuse their languages, like the original story? This isn't fun, graphics are just ok, controls are as expected.................. mediocre. Collapse
