Did You Know?


Has the most complex character in a computer game. The player controls a god-like character that trains an artificially intelligent giant creature. During the course of a game, the creature learns from the player and develops its own distinct personality. The size of the creature's mind increases from 6 - 7 KB up to 500 KB. This is the first time a computer game character has been programmed with such empathic learning capabilities. See more »

A Breakthrough PC Game!
17 April 2001 | by (Darwen, England) – See all my reviews

The biggest and best game to come out of the UK, and a game that sold over 200,000 copies in just 14 days.

As stated by a PC magazine: "the most important PC game ever created"

This comment is certainly true in all areas and aspects. Created by game genius Peter Molyneux, best British game designer and creator, known for multi-million successes such as Theme Park and Dungeon Keeper.

Black & White is a MUST for PC, Dreamcast, PlayStation 2 and XBOX owners. For a game that was predicted to sell over 7 million copies across 4 platform, isn't it time you became one of those lucky people?

The Scores:

Graphics: 95% (Looks superb on even Voodoo 3 2000's)

Audio: 90% (Music is very good and the voice acting is spot on)

Story: 95% (Very involving and deep)

Originality: 95% (Expands the genre even further)

Longevity: 100% (Possibly the biggest PC game ever)

Overall: 95% (The best PC game of all time, and the most satisfying. A MUST HAVE)
