SciFiWire.com: Demigod Reviewed

by Ken Newquist / May 14, 2009

My review of Demigod, the multiplayer god smachdown, is up at SciFiWire.com. This is the first Windows game I've reviewed in ... well, I'm not sure the last time I reviewed a Windows game. it might have been Stardock's Galatic Civilizations game (the original, not the sequel) back in 2003. The amusing thing? I actually played it on my Mac, dual-booting into Windows thanks to Bootcamp.

As for the game itself, it was fun. It pits eight demigods against each other on a bunch of different battlefields, usually with three gods to a team. There's no story and no campaign mode, just a barebones setup and lots of multiplayer warfare. It's a real-time strategy game, but one where you don't have to worry about constructing buildings or managing resources (aside from gold, which you get for killing enemy gods, which is something you were going to do anyway). As I mention in the review, if you like RTS games, and are itching to play Starcraft II, then this will be a ncie distraction.
