Play good. Play bad. Play God.
The idyllic world of Eden is in trouble and you, an all-powerful deity, have been called upon to save it! Whether you choose to restore order by building a harmonious city for your flock or by waging terrible war on non-believers, your actions determine Eden’s fate.
You’ll be assisted by your “Creature”, the physical manifestation of your power that takes the form of a vast ape, cow, lion or wolf. Will you reward its virtuous behaviour and help it become a force for good, or shape into a vengeful and destructive beast? Brutal conquest and rule through fear may be more effective than tender mercies, and a lot more fun! In Black & White 2, the choice is always yours.
Train your Creature to follow your example and watch it transform into a gentle giant or a demonic beast.
Witness the full extent of your divine influence as plants, buildings and people morph to reflect your approach, be it benevolent or belligerent.
Cast life-giving miracles or wreak destruction by calling forth natural disasters including volcanoes, earthquakes and even meteors.
Expand your dominion across nine distinct islands as you assimilate Greek, Norse, Japanese and Aztec tribes into your flock.
Adorn your settlements with sparkling fountains and lush gardens, or fill them with fearsome spikes and torture pits.
Includes the Battle of the Gods expansion pack: fight for dominance against a rival god, raise a tortoise or a tiger as your Creature and strike awe into the hearts of mortals with four additional miracles.

The first Black & White suffered the great problem that the title was absolutely original but, after few hours of playing, it wasn't really exciting anymore and became too simple. Black & White 2 (here in its MAC version) hasn’t these problems and makes some significant improvements over B&W with its amazing graphics, excellent gameplay and better creature mechanics. These changes, in fact, rewrite the entire game: B&W2 looks like a real time strategy game with very interesting god simulator elements whereas in B&W it was the opposite. And, I assure you, this transformation is all for the player’s pleasure. Obviously, in B&W2 you are once again a god, and you can be good or evil: the decision is always up to you. This aspect will influence almost everything around you. Even this aspect has an RTS influence, because your choice to be good or evil will impact how you can master your people and conquer other towns. The creature is always really central also in B&W2: training it is a primary objective in the first and in this second chapter. But the creature mechanics in the original Black & White seem rudimentary in comparison to B&W2. In this second title, you will have a creature that really can interact with you in many different ways. Thinking about this from a real time strategy perspective, your creature could be absolutely essential on the battlefield, so take care of it with attention, whether you choose to be a good god or an evil one. In short, although some years passed from its first release, I can say that B&W2 is even now the best god simulator and one of the most interesting RTS games you can buy. In closing, its price is nothing in relation with the pleasure and fun that you will have playing it: B&W2 is a must have, especially in this MAC version.
