Black & White.

My friend Will gave me Black & White as an early birthday present.

I've been wanting to play this game for so long. . . and it looks like it really is everything it's cracked up to be. I'm impressed.


I dunno. I started off being amazed, it seemed so great. I played it for a week. I haven't touched it since.

It's one of those "coulda been a contender" games that comes on strong but has a glass jaw. I got frustrated and bored with it in no time. In the end, for all of the supposed ground-breaking gameplay, it's just another one of those games where you build up, collect resources, and the kick the crap out of your enemies. It has a lot of nice features and is presented in a clever manner, but really isn't compelling at all. I was massively disappointed in it.

Well, hopefully you'll like it. Hehe, sorry, didn't mean to dump on it, but it was one of those games that made me really bitter, after getting all hyped up about it, and trying it and thinking "hey, they were right...!" and then playing it a little more deeply and realizing that no, they were wrong - it's great on the surface, but incredible unsatisfying once you get past that.
