Populous DS





Populous DS 


The WMG found Populous DS for ten dollars brand new. This may be a Nintendo DS hand held video game, but ten dollars is not a horrible deal. Maybe not the greatest in the world. Populous DS is a very religious video game. There are all these gods and goddesses in it. Many of them relate to the elements. I did not see one mention of the one true God in Populous DS.

Graphically Populous DS really shows its age. But then it is a repeat of an even older video game. Players can raise and lower the land. The reason for doing this is so your followers will build structures like homes and cities. They can only build on flat places. That means players go around flattening things. Lowering and raising land.

Populous DS spends most of its time talking about false gods and demons. Players are a deity to fight off the followers of the demons. A level is finally completed when Armageddon is brought upon that level. That is when followers of both fight it out until the end. Even if you have a large population it comes down to two citizens fighting it out at the end.

The lowering and flattening land can get boring in Populous DS. This tedious chore is needed to win though. You can also send disasters toward your enemy. This is done by building a magical gauge. The meteorite is one of the best disasters to send your enemies direction.

Populous DS includes plenty of enticement to lust as well as the near stick figure violence. Disasters can be violent in terms of death and destruction as well. Most the graphics are blah though.

Populous DS lets players only build so far away from their population. This can get annoying since you need to wait for them to build in a direction you are trying to raise land. Then the demon will send an attack like swamp into your main city. Which makes you go raise the land or lose the level if the demon calls Armageddon. Populous DS allows for up to four family members to play via Multi-Card.
