Black & White 2 Preview

The Black & White 2 Preview on Computer and Video Games offers impressions of Lionhead's upcoming god game sequel after getting to visit the lion's den to see how development is progressing. They describe the presentation by Peter Molyneux, Peter's feelings about the original game, how the follow-up will attempt to make the player's role more god-like, and plans to make B&W2 a more immersive and coherent game.

I wish he'd forget about the B&W stuff and make a good sequel to Syndicate... now that was a fun game

if the villagers were at least fractionaly as smart as your pet then the game would have been great

Agreed. Probably the one thing that bothered me more than all the other little issues combined.

The best (in every conceivable manner) review of Black & White was done by Firingsquad. I think they gave it somewhere around 70%.

Also true. And 70% is about what it deserved. I still think it was a phenomenal idea, and was perhaps a little ahead of its time, but I was completely burned by the B&W hype machine. Fool me once, etc... I'll wait for a demo of B&W2.

Edit: typo. And note to fredrickson: your trolls are getting less imaginitive. Probably time to just stop.

I'm guessing all the others played it for like, 5 minutes before creating their conclusions.

fredrickson you stupid (censor bad word here)...

Black & White 2... I don't know. I mean, all I heard Molyneffiajhjdnanaeeuuz talk about for Black & White was how it was going to have NO BUTTONS ON THE SCREEN, and how that was the coolest thing since hot sauce.

And now all he's talking about is how fucking stupid he was for not having buttons on the screen, and how idiotic for not TELLING you what you were punishing your creature for etc etc etc...

Jebers molynsneyeyefeyfheieuuzuz, did you just want to piss everyone off, or did you REALLY only just now come to realise that yes, all those things were stupid?

But, apart from that, I don't really see how this is going to be so different. You still have that creature (my fucking horse NEVER grew beyond a good 12 feet, even when he was 18000 years or so old..), you still teach it tricks yadda yadda, it's again going to have 400 missions which will turn out to be 19 (slight rounding up error there Lionhead?) etc.

What's new? I mean, apart from the few tweaks and stuff which should have been done in a PATCH for the original, what's REALLY new in this?

One thing which will be amusing to watch, though, is to see EVERY single reviewer in existence give it 98%, because EA paid them to, only to tell us after two months that "after second thought, it really sucked."

I didnt really get to enjoy B&W until maps were released where you could just play around with your creature. I like the RTS element but the creature was the coolest.
