  1. If you enjoyed Zeus, you'll be quite happy with Poseidon.
  2. 85
    With a ton of new adventures and the same level of humor and flair (not to mention the twenty drachmae asking price) Poseidon is a great value.
  3. 85
    Even if it isn't all that different from "Zeus," it provides the same addictive gameplay that made "Zeus" such a great game.
  4. Though none of Poseidon's new features changes Zeus' core gameplay in any meaningful way, there is an awful lot of new content here.
  5. 80
    When I do click play, I find it very hard to stop.
  6. 80
    Not only does it add dozens of hours to the gameplay of its predecessor, it features some of the most enjoyable and fanciful mission design ever seen in the venerable City Building Series.
  7. Adds enough eye-candy to the mega-hit Zeus to recapture your attention and perhaps rekindle your love for everything old and Greek.

    Original Zeus game was perfect, Poseidon is not. Developers just changed few buildings to make it look "new", added a few more and kindaOriginal Zeus game was perfect, Poseidon is not. Developers just changed few buildings to make it look "new", added a few more and kinda forgot to polish the gameplay as well - levels are just not as balanced as they were in Zeus, the maps are "nice looking" but not fun to play. Just better stay with Zeus :-) Expand
