Heres another Game Review, as usual Short and to the Point :P

The game Runs well on a 9800pro or above with maxed out graphics and 1024x768 but if u have a very high end GPU just go all out on it, it will run fine. The game ran Well on my system with 1gb of ram.

The game detail is amazing, it is truly a world simulator where you get to play God with the world.

The tutorial however almost ruins the game for me, they are always around and never shut the hell up and during the beginning part of the game the movement tutorial almost treats you like an infant.

The aim of the game is to bring your empire back from the brink of extinction, you are up against the Aztecs, the game plays like a God Game however it has elements of RTS when combat is concerned, you build up army's from civilians that are not Disciples, in this case it is good to get plenty of Disciple Breeders and 3 or 4 Nursery's to keep the population growth going so u can keep your army's going, their i go sounding like a RTS player :lol:

Your God Creature acts pretty random, it runs around doing stuff, you can teach it to good different things or punish it if u don't want it do do something in particular, like eat villagers or bash rocks or Build or Even Gather Resources, as with your army units you can directly control your creature, he really owns enemy army platoons !

The 3 Resource types is Food Ore and Wood, you can never really run out of wood since playing god and all you can rip trees from one place and put them elsewhere to grow while you get a couple of Disciple Gatherers to get wood, Water Miracle can really help keep trees going to aswell your food fields, Ore is mainly gathered in Ore mines or from Ore Rocks, Don't make the mistake of piking up a " Rock " instead of " Ore Rock " and then end up dropping a giant rock on an almost complete Building like i did LOL.

The only Serious bad side is the Devil and the Angel that Piss you off throughout the game.

The game is pretty great, i do recommend it ;D
If i don't.. i don't even review it ! ha :D
Enjoy.

How are the graphics compared to doom3? I heard this is pretty close, if not better.

If you want a game like Doom3 but is better and has better graphics, Play F.E.A.R ! :)
