I'm kind of let down. No, not kind of. I'm really fucking let down. I was called about the pre-order and after reading the comments and reviews this sounds like what happened to me with the Sims.
I bought into the hype played it for several hours but the bottom line was that even the cool possibilities couldn't save the boring ass game-play.
I ended up installing a money cheat and building or designing huge houses... forget the micro managing the little people. Now that I think about it Black & White was the same thing. After hearing those little ungrateful villagers crying for more more more...
So now I doubt I'll be picking up my copy tomorrow. And with the WAR Preview Weekend event being more hassle than anything else... well, I need to kill something in cyberspace or I won't sleep well tonight.
