Heaven & Hell is yet another god sim pitting good vs evil in a battle to conquer the hearts and minds of the people. But unlike Populous, there's very little in this game to hold your attention or long.
ft should, in theory, be lots of fun. Starting off with a solitary prophet (complete with long white hair and obligatory beard), you send him off to villages to increase your deity's following.
There are shades of The Sims here, as preaching is just a load of 'technobabble' (imagine listening to the Smurfs on fast forward) along with some icons that have no relevance to the game. It's supposed to be set in 1500BC, so why he's talking about aeroplanes, dead fish and umbrellas is anyone's guess.
Couple this with some unfunny dialogue and you'll be reaching for the nitrous oxide before you hit the second map. "Don't get distracted by sheep on your travels," oh ha bloody ha-ha (Escape) (Quit),
If that wasn't bad enough, the game mechanics make no sense whatsoever. Standing in one part of the city preaching will have zero effect - move one pixel to the left and suddenly you have a plethora of converts. That's not fun, it's damn annoying.
The game may be pitched at gamers but, in reality, it's ideally suited for kids aged 8 to 12. Simple gameplay and even simpler jokes. This would be fine if the developers put a reasonable price on the game But they haven't - at $29.99, it seems the only true prophet in this game is the profit margin.
