Black & White 2: Battle of the Gods
Whilst the original Black and White was rough around the edges and in need of some polishing, the sequel really did feel like it was a finished product. Black & White 2: Battle of the Gods carries on the good work and throws a few extras into the mix. Battle of the Gods allows you to use your creature from Black & White 2 or choose another creature, with one new arrival – the turtle. New miracles have been added, including the ability to raise the dead or create floods, as well as new islands and new buildings.
The basic plot of the game is that the Aztecs you defeated in the original have been sacrificing to their dead god ever since, and finally the shear strength of their belief has brought this god back to life, or more correctly undeath. This god is now massing his undead legions in a bid to destroy you and cleanse the world of all living, and you, of course, have to stop him.
Depending on your playing style, this expansion can be breezed trough in six to eight hours – if you complete all minigames relatively quickly, that is, which for some of us who are less analytically minded can be no small feat. Each new minigame grants tributes just like in the original, which when combined with the tribute choices at the beginning (Battle of the Gods begins with a quick start mode for those not importing from B&W2) allows players to purchase some of the major wonders, like volcanoes, which were somewhat difficult to get in the original without forgoing everything else.
