Gaming Nexus writes: "Filling dad's shoes has rarely been a more ambitious undertaking. Your role, as one of eight offspring of a fallen god, is to take your cast-down father's place in the pantheon that sits on high. Your tools are honed, your mission is clear. And your resolve is not unlike Winston's from the Ghostbusters when he tells Ray, "When someone asks you if you're a god, you say 'Yes!'"
With Gas Powered Games at the helm, and Stardock manning the publishing rudder, Demigod sails rarely-charted waters between real-time strategy and loot-hoarding role-playing games. It's not a fully-recognizable RTS because you control only a single hero unit. It's not a fully-recognizable RPG because, well, there's no role to play beyond acting as a hammer against your foes. If nothing else, Demigod is a ripping good game of capture the flag, even if it's nothing more than exactly that."
