Great game if you like a simpler dwarf fortress with spy movie themes. My only complaint is that it slows down a bit when you have to send your henchmen to steal cash rather than preform acts of notoriety. The interface can also be a bit clumsy if you're used to modern games.
This game is a masterpiece. It was made ages ago, and still looks and runs really good. If I could, I would buy this game over and over again every time it pops out on store. Anyone who enjoys playing strategy and being evil, MUST try this game. I wish they would make a 2nd part, maybe I should KickStart it.
Did you ever want to destroy the world with a push of a button? Then look no further!! This game is the perfect strategy game for all you evil geniuses out there. You get to pick from three kickass villains who want to destroy the local "007" and control the world for themselves. You get to plan ways to take over the world by building your base, however you want it, setting traps for unsuspecting 00 agents, hiring new mercenaries to complete your evil deeds world wide, and by pushing a button to see your rival fall down to their doom.
Let your inner mastermind reign supreme in Evil Genius, a fun filled romp through a tongue-in-chic swinging 60s spy pastiche. The core gameplay revolves around building your secret volcano lair and managing your corps of henchmen and nameless minions, balancing their everyday needs with your goals of research, covert criminal operations and eventually, world domination. It's great fun, and the Austin Powers meets Dungeon Keeper comparisons are apt, and deserved. Something that sets Evil Genius apart is the aesthetic. It operates in an exaggerated art style where everything is a caricature of 1960s tropes. You'll build absurd traps and torture devices, including an oversized blender or a slowly moving laser beam, and your subordinates walk about in brightly colored jumpsuits, hunched over banks of consoles. It's bright and cartoony, and doesn't take itself very seriously. Thumbs up for this one for sure!
If you are also one of those people who have been waiting patiently for some new game like Dungeon Keeper to come out Evil Genius is yours. You might not control a dungeon of imps and demons but henchmen and ... more advanced henchmen but the basic idea is the same. The game has a lot of content and a lot of depth with lots of different minions to develop and rooms to build in your underground lair of your secret island. The game has a great sense of humour based on the more ridiculous episodes of James Bond and will keep you busy for hours while you carefully plan how to terrorize some money out of the world. The game is great for all strategy/simulation fans and anyone with some sense of humour. And it is an absolute must if you are plotting and scheming your world domination.
