Okay so I already wrote a review on this, but since then so much has been changed in the game that I felt like I had to write a new one.
So after all this Godus stuff in the media, I thought I might try to play the game again. And I did.
Like I said in my previous review: the game is fun, but you quickly get tired of it.
So unless you don't know what the game is about yet, you are god and you're supposed to lead your followers and further their civilization, all while sculpting the land to your liking. Or rather A god. I'm not really sure anymore, because in the earliest versions, which I honestly enjoyed more, there was multiplayer. They seem to have removed that, but I honestly can't tell if they've just left it 10 hours farther into the game or if they've actually removed it completely. The multiplayer was FUN! Where'd it go!?
Since my last review they've added some tribal-except-not-really-people called the Astari, and to be honest they're just really annoying, occasionaly sending a raiding party to one of your settlements... Which they've also changed, but for the better in my opinion. The problem with the raiding "parties" is that the game always tells you in advance "THE ASTARI ARE COMING!" and then you just whip out your 'finger of god' and crush them before they reach the settlement. It's fun at first, but unless you expand your influence they will always come from the same spot and it just get's really annoying after a while.
Also, your followers are ♥♥♥♥ing idiots. Like the Astari raiding parties they just get really annoying after a while. Unless there's a really long stretch of land they rarely seem to be able to find their way around things. And just can't figure out what purpose the military settlements have. They're useless. You can do everything within your power to make the best pathway possible for them, but they still. won't. listen. I guess it could be an attempt at making your followers more "human", but that really doesn't mean much when you don't think of them as that in the first place. But that's highly unlikely. The AI's probably just inept.
AND THEN ONE OF MY MAIN COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE GAME:
The Astari; the other guys- the AI opponent so to speak- does not progress. Why!? When you start the game they already have one village, and this ONE village NEVER CHANGES. It's just there. Doing it's thing. Nothing happens. Just the occasional raiding party sent to your settlements. This doesn't make any sense, because it is implied that you move through the primitive age to the broze age to the iron age. That's hundreds of years in a few hours! How are these people not progressing?! An Age is a really long time.
I would talk about the card and sticker system they have, but it's actually not that bad except you need more and more to unlock more cards as your progress.
The game is fun, but you quickly get tired of it. You will constantly find some small thing that you wish was better, and these stack up after a while.
