i've been hearing alot of hype for this series, whats it like?
Originally a Bullfrog game and then EA bought Bullfrog (as they do) and then released on the DS in Japan earlier this year. For some reason EA are letting someone else publish this outside of Japan. Yeah this game is always on this thread, maybe it'll be out this week.
Populous pioneered the God simulation genre. Featuring touch-screen controls that utilize the dual-screens, players manipulate 5 elementally-imbued gods, each with their own unique miracles, within an extensive single-player campaign. Within the multiplayer wireless mode, up to 4 players can unleash earthquakes, tidal waves and raging volcanoes onto rival players' lands.
The Japanese version was hacked with some English and I had a quick go and fount it to be a decent port.

YES! HEAVEN THANK YOU@!!!! Good that its not postponed
U mean hadarin? >_>
Edit: nvm.... u edited it
Ya what is this game about I want to know befor I get it.
It is THE God Game of all time, the game that made Peter Molyneux popular.
It is awesome. It's also fun as all hell. I've been waiting for this game to appear in a decent form to a handheld since Game Boy Color days. I still have the original Populous 2 (which this is a port of) disks for the Amiga.
So yeah. The first good game of the guy behind Fable and Black & White. Both of which are inferior to Populous & Dungeon Keeper.
If you've never played either, you really should. They're still excellent games in 2008 even if they need trickery to run on XP.
so, is this game any good?
I remember playing populous the beginning long ago and enjoying that a little...
Yay, finally! Been playing halfway through this in engrish already and enjoyed it a lot. Looking forward playing through the real one now. Great game.
Now all we need is Powermonger, Gods, and Shadow of the Beast and I'll be happier than a pig in shit!
It's probably too much to ask for a port of the PC game Wings of Glory...that one was hard to get running on DOS back in the day...I imagine it would be dang near impossible on XP. Or how about Crusader:No Remorse/No Regret?
Good old times, gonna check that out as soon as i finish all the other great stuff coming out these days. Maybe same time next year or so. Loved that game to death on the PC back then. Terraforming and pseudo 3D was teh awesomeness.
i wanna see syndicate......
Well i only liked Popolus the beginning ... this looks a little bit too bad in my opinion
Terrain Flatten Simulator 2000 came out in usa. w00t!!
I really wanted a game of this category and when Hadrian announced it, i decided not to get the Snes one but i think this really rocks
I've been waiting for this game all week.
Theme Hospital DS please, EA.
What's this game like compared to Populous The Beginning? I liked fighting other tribes in that game but in this all I see is 2 Gods dancing around the field :S
This is a port of Populous 2, better than Populous: The Beginning.
For you, one word. DosBox.
Totally Agree... Theme Hospital was a classic... "Patients... please keep your germs to yourselves".
Syndicate was nice too.
I'll enjoy this one.. the original populous rocked. So.... someone above mentioned this is populous 2? or is it populous 1?
Hey, I like terrain flattening. It's so... zen.
