Vooks writes: "Really old games are always better if you never go back and play them again. A tint of nostalgia washes away any and all blemishes, and you'll only remember the good times you had with a game. I sort of wish I played Populous as a kid. I always wanted to, but never did. Populous is a name held in some sort of reverence; it's a classic, and it was one of pioneers of the God-Game genre. We've seen Dungeon Keeper, Black & White, the Sims, Viva Piñata, Spore and any number of others since. It begs the question, can a near-vanilla port of a twenty year old game impress us at all?"
