Gods vs Humans


By Jeann Wong                            Price: 1500 Wii Points

Gods vs Humans is a strategy game where you become an almighty God with powers to boot. Based on different mythologies, you will be several different Gods in this game including Zeus, Odin, Osiris and Amaterasu. The game is designed by two comic book artists, and it’s evident through the eye-catching graphics and cute characters.

The aim of the game is simple - you use your godly powers to destroy a tower to prevent the humans in it from reaching you in heaven. There are a range of offensive and defensive powers which you can use, but the challenge is that you can’t hit any of the humans (except for one, which I will discuss later). This is important for keeping the humans happy. If you anger them, they will work faster, making it more difficult for you to destroy the tower.

There are several different types of humans which affect their counterparts in different ways: builders, construction supervisors, carriers, blacksmiths, champions, protector and good/evil priests. The builders and carriers work together to build levels in the tower, with the construction supervisor watching over them to make them build faster. Blacksmiths enter the tower when the forge is built to prepare a battering ram which the champion uses to enter your realm. The priest levels out the human’s moods when they are too happy or angry. Finally, the protector carries a defensive relic and exists to inhibit you from your task. He’s the one that you can attack with your powers. These units are introduced gradually as you progress, making things tougher. They add a lot of depth to the game, as you balance attacking the tower with keeping the humans happy (defensive spells).

As with any strategy game, Gods vs Humans has a large learning curve. The game practically holds your hand through the first few levels to ensure that you understand how to play. You’ll never get bored with the 80 levels available and the 16 Gods you get to play. It has the length of a full retail release and is worth the money, if you are patient enough to sit through the learning curve.

We say: GOOD BUY

Never heard of the game, and it looks pretty good. Might get it. ;)
Multiple gods? Polytheism much?
