  1. Darwinia+ is one of the coolest titles currently available in the XBLA library.
  2. Beautifully bizarre retro graphics can't hide the rough edges on this real-time action strategy.
  3. Sepulveda has so lovingly created? No, absolutely, unequivocally not. Darwinia+ deserves to be experienced by as many people as possible. It’s not going to be for everyone, that’s for certain. Some won’t even give it longer than the first couple of levels (which are painstakingly slow and confusing to boot) or be able to forgive it its frailties.

    Pretty much as good a console RTS as you're likely to play. [Issue#93, p.121]
  5. X-ONE Magazine UK
    A bit of a mixed bag, liable to entertain but for reasons that you'll struggle in vain to fathom. [Issue#56, p.104]
  6. Darwinia+ both looks and feels really unique. You are supposed to help the adorable little darwinien creatures to evolve and act like their god. It is somewhat slow paced and has some minor control issues, but is a really charming indie game for everyone that wants to play something different.
  7. A nice porting for this peculiar game, full of strategy and visually entertaining.
  8. Enjoy it for the looks, the controls and cuteness of it all and enjoy it for the simplicity, most of all.
  9. Darwinia+ has an interesting idea behind it, and its retro aesthetic and aural qualities are a great touch to the game's digital world. But given all the laborious gameplay, I would hesitate to recommend it to most. The multiplayer, exclusive to this XBLA release, might add a little bit of pizzaz.
