Overrated
I had no trouble installing or playing. Finished the story in 3 1/2 hours. It's not really interesting enough to replay. The quest fields are small blocks of territory with about half a dozen easy objectives. Rush, rush, rush... no time to savor the game before the lava flow, fire or flood, or all of the above simultaneously, wipes out your tribe. It would have potential with a larger open-ended sandbox, competing tribes, vicious monsters, etc. But none of that. There are playfields outside of the storyline, but I don't see the point. Wasted $15...

I loved Populous. But this...is just boring. Can't understand how someone manages to play it to the end.

Well I got it for £6, and played it for about 6 hours, I agree that its a bit boring, but I wanted to finish it, and at £6 for 6 hours, it was a fair price (my rule of thumb is £1 per hour for a game = reasonable value). The game was probably just about the right length, any more and I woulnt have played it through, the final mission was a sandbox game, where you can do anything to the terrain, but to be honest, I'd had enough by then. It wasnt very challenging, but was a nice finished bug free game. I enjoyed playing it for a day, I didnt play the extra missions as they were micro timed things, 1 tiny bit late and you lose. Cant say I recomend this, but if you think it looks ok, and you know its only going to be about 6 hours with low replay value, go for it.

I got more use out of the tf2 hat from the purchase than I did from the game itself.

i loved populus the begin ning and thought this game is the inofficial populus 2 but it wasnt, they tried to force the palyer to strong so i wasnt able to look at this game, like the level when everywhere spawns the water and everything begins to flood, why jesus ? WHYY?
