A casual god-sim completely lacking in excitement

Reus is fun for the first 2-3 hours. By then you've seen everything the game has to offer and realize it isn't worth trying to nab all those elusive achievements. The game seems pretty well-made but it is ultimately just a casual god-sim severely lacking in excitement. You control four giants that can terraform a barren planet, adding oceans, forests, mountains, and swamps, as well as plants, animals, and minerals to each. Your job is to make the planet habitable and provide human settlers with whatever resource they need from food, tech, and wealth. You have 30 minutes to make the humans as prosperous and happy as possible. Or you could kill them if you think they're becoming too greedy. The choice is yours and yours alone! Helping the humans complete projects (i.e. acquire a certain amount of food, tech, and wealth in a limited time span) provides an Ambassador for one of your giants. Picking up the ambassador provides minor power-ups to the abilities you already possess. The game has 13 different tech trees for you to attempt to understand. Each possible tech tree is tied to a biome (ocean, forest, mountain, swamp) and resource (animal, plant, mineral). You cannot unlock all abilities in a single play session, so you'll need to pick and choose how to use your ambassadors to best affect. I really like this concept, but in practice it is poorly implemented. The in-game prompts for how Ambassadors affect each giant and how each upgraded ability affects the different resources is incredibly confusing to understand. The game attempts to offer replayability by providing a number of conflicting objectives (steam achievements), forcing you to play a ridiculous number of times in order to complete all the objectives. (The steam achievements are the only end-goals/objectives this game provides.) Unfortunately, nothing ever changes between plays so the game grows boring very quickly. The 30-minute sessions just seem to drag on forever, and just when you're wondering if it will ever end, the game then allows you to increase the time limit to 60 minutes. That's 60 minutes of boredom, catering to the every whim and need of the pesky humans.

Very interesting game

Reus is a resource management game with a catchy premise: you control four gods who can morph the surface of a small planet. The combination of land types (and later, structures) will allow humans to settle and develop. But here's where things can go wrong: if you make the right choices, the population will thrive and build a healthy society. If you don't, the villages will declare war on each other, and ultimately attack the very gods you're controlling - and if they die, it's game over for you. If you're going to get it for (or play it with) your kids don't worry though, as violence in the game is by no means graphic or gory. Reus is a very cute and relaxing game, although it will require you to make the right decisions at the right time, which aren't always obvious. Just be aware that, as it isn't easy to progress far enough in a game to build the fancier stuff of the structure trees, the game can get boring after a few hours if you don't get a solid grasp of how to succeed. Don't get me wrong though, I think Reus is a lovely game - and so is Renowned Explorers, as of now the only other game developed by the promising Abbey games.

Fun at the begin

You play as a titan, a "god" u make the world as you wish, but, you don't have full control, you depend on the humans for something, and your objective, is to give them food and basic resources, and as you finish making your world, the game loses it fun, just watching the humans evolve, is not that fun anymore

A very enjoyable game with a short lifespan

In Reus you control four different titans whose sole purpose is to create and sculpt the world for the people. It has a charming art style and the most enjoyable part is definitely terraforming and changing the world. The main purpose is to create different biomes for the people of the world that satisfy their needs - some of the people want a forest or greenland, while others would prefer to have a desert or mountain region. Ultimately, however, this is all that the game becomes. All that you do is create this world and change it or shape it to fit the needs of the people, so it does end up feeling quite repetitive. It's fun for those first couple of hours or so, but then there isn't much else in it to keep you going.

ok game

i think that they did a good job with the game. the good things i liked about the game is that i like how you build the world that the different tribes live in the different biomes that the giants make yourself. also did i mention i like how the different tribes live in different biomes. also i like that there are a lot of challenges to complete in the game. the stuff i don't like is that that the game repeats its self a lot. also i don't like that there is no story to the game at all. so i give this game a 65/100 it's a good game for people that like god game.
