    REUS presents the world as if the almighty was an accountant. It is as much a game about crunching numbers as it is about creating a paradise for humanity, but its beautiful setting helps to mask how logic-driven it really is. It's both confusing and addictive in equal measure and manages to find a great balance between continuously providing a challenge and not overwhelming players.

    A satisfying and well designed game in a genre rarely seen on consoles, lacking a little bit in variety but still suggested to god games lovers.

    As a fan of achievements I'm more than happy to report that going for some of these larger achievements is not only going to take me a lot of time, but be an incredible amount of fun. Reus offers gamers an incredibly deceptive and uniquely in-depth god strategy experience. However, Reus is a bit of a stretch for its $25 price tag, but easily worth $19.99 all day long, so keep an eye out for a sale.

    Reus is a pleasant little God sim that starts off simple enough but soon becomes deeper and more complex.

    For an indie title, Abbey Games does a great job in developing an in-depth, complex simulation game. Unfortunately, the game at times did not really feel like a game given the amount of numbers utilized.

    Having a poor UI, lack of objectives, slow pacing, and self-limitations, there's not much room left for strategy or fun.

    Reus tries to simplify a complex genre, but loses what makes the genre interesting in the first place.
