A great God style game

Populous the first had definitely produced a rip tide in gaming history, putting forth to the player all the elements that would come to be named as a G! The initial idea of the game was to offer the player the tools to interact with human beings directly, and have a lot of power. However, that power was derived from either fear or love, and thus, you were forced, in each of the game's square based map, to take decisions that might not have been the easiest to take. You could transform the land, bring in natural disasters, build, or destroy, whatever you wanted. The in inhabitants would then have reason to either hate or love you, but the idea was to be consistent. The second game keeps the recipe almost unchanged, yet it offers you a lot more in terms of graphic quality, with much better animations, more advanced imposed perspective 3D and also with lots of additional elements, from tiles to disasters or miracles. A definitive upgrade for the series, lots more playable than the first. Download it!
