From Dust Review

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

The game is fun. If you played Black and white two, this is pretty similar except instead of good vs bad its like you have to be good and nature is bad.

Controls:
The controls are actually very similar to B&W2 so if you played that you will be familiar with it. I do remember thinking the controls for B&w were odd at first, perhaps it will be confusing to some.

Graphics:
The graphics are pretty good. Nothing great, not bad either. Pretty solid mediocre graphics. Nice water effects and DOF. If the FPS is limited to 30 FPS (like some calim)I cant really tell. 60 FPS is not really something you need for this game since most of the time you are just looking down on the world.

Gameplay:
If you have seen the trailers you already know what to expect. Its pretty fun though the $15 dollars price tag is definitely justifyable because the gameplay is not very complex. Still fun, kinda like a simple version of B&W, but with some nature stuff. The point of the game is that you move the little people around from totem pole to totem pole, and there are obsticles inbetween. At each totem pole your villagers will make vegatation happen. I think the vegetation helps the land stay put as other areas of the land seem to change noticably during the duration of a round.

Other:
Game is good. Not great but not something anyone should avoid. If you saw the trailer and though it looked fun, you will probably like it and not be disappointed.

It does seem silly to use such annoying DRM on a $15 dollars game. The game itself is fun though.

Good looking out on the review. I have been waiting to play this for awhile. LOVE B&W2 and have not found a game like it since. I can deal with some annoying DRM and some bugs as long as the game has some fun components to it.

+ rep for the non emo review!

While I don't think it really holds a candle to the B&W games, I think the comparison was warranted. The game is very fun, and can be very challenging if you're trying to get every area up to 100% vegetation.
