C3 Review: Populous Writes:

"The graphics and the sound can be forgiven for being basic, they aren't offensive and they do the job they are required to do but it all feels a bit empty. The images lack character and the audio lacks soul, there aren't any frivolous extras, which is criminal in the sound department especially considering that the DS is capable of such greatness in this regard. However all of that is side dressing, the meat of this game is in the gameplay and sadly it makes Kate Moss look porky. There're about forty odd missions in total and each map has its own personality, but they all play exactly the same. Build houses, spawn more villagers, build more houses, spawn more villagers, etc. until the time limit reaches zero"

The story is too old to be commented.
