“You know the feeling, you wish for just one chance to...”

Written on: 06/05/2004 by Ian Lynch (1 review written)

You know the feeling, you wish for just one chance to have magic powers, to be all powerful, to 'blow stuff up' or 'Create world peace.' Well the time is now! Play 'Black and White.'
As the name states the game revolves around good and evil, and quite simply, you're a God, you take the form of a giant 'hand' in which you move around the world and do your 'Godly thing'. Choose to be evil, or be good and watch the world change to your will. Firstly I should mention graphics, visually stunning, the… Read Full Review

Black and White is a fantastic games spoiled for many by frequent crashes. It is possible to get it to run on all operating systems but it takes effort. Well worth that effort though… Read Full Review

“Yet another example of a badly playtested game. ”

Written on: 23/04/2003 by BigDave. (1 review written)

Yet another example of a badly playtested game.
Played it on 4 diferent machines. It crashed on all of them constantly and made the game unplayable.
Nice idea.. shame about the game.
I would have been adicted to it if only I could have played it for long enough before it crashed… Read Full Review

Youcan't blame the game for how well it loads. It's probably a scratchonthe disc. If you kept a receipt yopucould get another copy from the shop.

I didn't say that the game wouldn't install. It installed fine.. even played for a while.. got a few levels through before it started crashing.
<br>And it crashed consistantly on each machine I installed it.
<br>No Scratches on the disk.. just not very well playtested. All games have to be out there.. on the market ASAP. Deadlines and all that.

No,no, no... This Black & white game is terribly boring. It looks like a cute game for kids under 7 years old. You know..., you have cute people, a cute tiger/cow/monkey, a cute island... This is NOT for real grown up players!

I have to agree with the other people who were writing in, you have to tell people the bad things about it too, I have heard by many people that it crashes every ten sec! You kinda forgot to mention that!

“Black & White, it says it just by the name. There are...”

Written on: 30/01/2003 by XENO. (1 review written)

Black & White, it says it just by the name. There are good and evil in the world and you are to decide which one will rule eternal. As soon as you have installed the game you get some brilliant pictures, and tips on how to play the game, and this is before you've even click new game. The graphics are a real head turnner and the quality of sound is imense. I could just sit and say good things about the graphics all day, but that would not be much help to anyone. So, when the game does load up… Read Full Review

“You are god. Not thee god but you are a god in a world...”

Written on: 05/12/2002 by SRRAE. (1 review written)

You are god. Not thee god but you are a god in a world controlled by a number of gods. Are you a good god or a bad god? Well that is entirely up to you! Yes, gone are the days where you have to follow the story line to continue till the next level. You have goals to complete, but you can do what ever you want to achieve them. You start off as a neutral god, neither good nor bad, in control of a small village, the more people worship you the stronger you get. How do you get them to worship you… Read Full Review

This is not a review. I have no idea what this guy really thought about the game. He just told me what the game was about. Useful information, but not a review.

Black and White is an extreamly addictive game.Your creature can learn bad or good spells wich keeps you busy for a while until he get it.But your village doesnt have to be unattended.It just your temple you have to worry about.The sandboxes are cool.But the graphics are a little akward.there are many things to do on the game to keep you busy until you are at the point to raising just your creature.

Written on: 23/07/2001 by PureEvil. (1 review written)

Black&White although NOT original is still one of the best games available on the PC to date. With the mix of many gaming styles, if proves to be one for everyone.
You play god, and with your creature at your side, you conquer lands by making villagers "believe" in you. This game has many plots that evolve as the game progresses, and with many sub-plots this game can last a life-time.
Congratulations to Lionhead for this title..which undoubtably will be in the charts for some time to come… Read Full Review
