The idyllic world of Eden is in trouble and you, an all-powerful deity, have been called upon to save it! Whether you choose to restore order by building a harmonious city for your flock or by waging terrible war on non-believers, your actions determine Eden’s fate.

You’ll be assisted by your “Creature”, the physical manifestation of your power that takes the form of a vast ape, cow, lion or wolf. Will you reward its virtuous behaviour and help it become a force for good, or shape into a vengeful and destructive beast? Brutal conquest and rule through fear may be more effective than tender mercies, and a lot more fun! In Black & White 2, the choice is always yours.

Key features:

• Train your Creature to follow your example and watch it transform into a gentle giant or a demonic beast.

• Witness the full extent of your divine influence as plants, buildings and people morph to reflect your approach, be it benevolent or belligerent.

• Cast life-giving miracles or wreak destruction by calling forth natural disasters including volcanoes, earthquakes and even meteors.

• Expand your dominion across nine distinct islands as you assimilate Greek, Norse, Japanese and Aztec tribes into your flock.

• Adorn your settlements with sparkling fountains and lush gardens, or fill them with fearsome spikes and torture pits.

• Includes the Battle of the Gods expansion pack: fight for dominance against a rival god, raise a tortoise or a tiger as your Creature and strike awe into the hearts of mortals with four additional miracles.

Crashing issues after Japanese land.


Consistent, repeatable crashes happen upon completion of the Japanese land level. If you’re not planning on playing further than that, then by all means, it’s fine.
There’s also a strange issue with the cursor remaining visible in the centre of the screen during gameplay (on the iMac, at least).

Resolving these two issues will immediately bump it up to 5 star (but they should have already been addressed before launch)
