Black & White is a God game from the creator of the classic game Populous, Peter Molyneux. It is a game of open endedness in the very definition of the word. You choose what you want to do and how you want to do it, unless of course you feel like progressing to new lands, which requires doing certain tasks

Plot

Whenever someone prays, a god is born. In the land of eden, a small child goes swimming, and is surrounded by sharks. .His parents call out to the gods for help, and you are born.^ So instead of responding to my comment at all, you call out something arguable as “one of the stupidest things I’ve ever read on this site”.

^ Mark: well, you called me out, thanks and sorry.

.You are there to stay now, and it is your choice, will you be good or evil?^ I’m not a death metal fan, but if I could judge the bands’ sound on their looks, then I’m going to have to trust you on your list choices.

^ With only 10 spots, of course bands will be left out, so honestly, your list is pretty damn good, with one exception: NILE needs to be in there.

^ If you actually read the earlier comments I dislike most of the choices on there that you do, amazing huh?

Gameplay

BW plays out quite simple. You are a god, and have the powers of one. .You can pick up people, trees, rocks, etc., and throw them around or drop them on houses.^ And that’s not directed at you, I just wanted to throw it out there so people understood my POV .

^ Listen to what you want and ignore what other people say just don’t make up facts.
  • Top 10 Death Metal Bands - Listverse 10 February 2010 12:21 UTC listverse.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ I dont care if people disagree with my picks but at least have something legit to back it up with.

Also, later in the game, you gain miracles, which are like fireball, lightning, or flock of birds (or bats if you are evil). Speaking of evil, that is one of the finest points in the game. You can be good or evil, depending on how you treat your villagers or complete quests. .Onscreen, you are shown to be good or evil by the look of your almighty hand.^ You name-dropping wanker: get your hand off your #14 .

^ Get your hands on some Wolfmother, if you’re a Sabbath fan they won’t disappoint.

Controls

For a game with so much going on, it must be a complicated control setup. wrong. All control is done with the mouse (unless you choose to use the keyboard). The game has no onscreen menus to speak of, and works quite fluid with this setup. .The game also recognizes a gestures system, in which you draw shapes onto the ground with you hand to quickly cast miracles or such.^ So, yes, I now have firm ground to assume that you have no idea about what Cynic is and what music they played and how they shaped DM in the years to come.

Creatures

The most innovative part of this game, however, is the creatures. Shortly after the start of the game, you are given the choice of 3 creatures*.
  • An Ape that learns faster than the others, but is also easily distracted
  • A Tiger who is best at fighting
  • A Cow, who pays good attentiong and learns at medium pace, and is a decent fighter
The creature AI is absolutely brilliant, and no two creatures will be exactly alike. Like you, the creatures can also be good or evil. They learn by being put on leashes and watching what you do, then repeating it. .If you like what they do, you can pet them and praise them, but if they do bad (like eat the villagers if you are trying to be good) you can beat them to a pulp.^ You mentioned the presence of blast beats and growls, which is good, but many of those bands never use them.

^ Cannibal Corpse..they sound very weird”, yeah mate, they sound like death metal, something you obviously never listened too.

^ Arbitrary rules can be in place for a good reason – like sex and alcohol, we (including me) don’t want people too young to be exposed – but when they are arbitrary i.e.

  • More creatures can be found as the game goes on, or downloaded online. When changing creatures,either through the ingame option or through an external program, the personality, size, etc. are transferred to the new one.
