Black & White goodnessThe web seems to be Black & White today with the first Review of the title over at PC Zone, and a 99.9% complete version being shown to PC Format by Peter Molyneux.
According to the assimilated Blues News, Lionheads Peter Molyneux dropped by uk site PC Formats office today to show them a "99.9 percent complete" version of Black & White (PC). Heres a bit of that one.
Also rather alluring were some of the more comical features. The possibilities afforded by throwing rocks and trees, for example, are many, and its amazing how a room full of journalists can be made to cackle evilly simply by swiping the legs out from under a disobedient creature and watching it hit the floor in a heap. Were also promised that this is the first game to feature fully interactive faeces. Mmm. Pleasant. (Not sure if they meant to say faces or feces??? -K)
PC Zone was the first site to post up a Black & White review giving it a final score of 95%! Judging from their write-up, Black & White looks to become an instant classic. You can click here to check out the review.
Virtually every part of the game allows the player to do pretty much whatever they want. Lionheads ultimate goal was to produce a giant sandpit in which the player could mess around with everything in it. If you want to drop a cow on someone, go ahead. If you want to stoke up an almighty forest fire, then let rip. If you want to chuck people off cliffs or feed them to your creature, then go for your life. What we have here is happy hour multiplied by a thousand.
