Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Black & White Deluxe features Black & White and the Creature Isle expansion together in one great package.

Black & White

Black & White is a role-playing game unlike any other you've played before. You play the role of a deity in a land where the surroundings are yours to shape and its people are yours to lord over. Be an evil, malevolent god and the natives will worship you with fear in their eyes. Play as a kind, benevolent god and they will worship you with love in their hearts. Your actions decide whether you create a heaven or hell for your worshipers. Then select a creature from the land to act as your representative in the world. Raise it to gigantic proportions and teach it to do your bidding--whether the animal grows into an evil colossus of mass destruction or a kind and gentle giant is up to you. Progress through the game's rich storyline performing powerful miracles to battle other deities and become the world's supreme god.

Black & White Expansion: Creature Isle

When the missionaries from your land of Eden wreck on the coast of Creature Isle, you and your creature are suddenly called forth through the vortex to encounter the Brotherhood of Creatures, a collective of giants without deities. Explore new lands and win the worship of new tribes to expand your godly powers beyond your wildest dreams. Raise your creature to new heights and teach him all-new abilities as he completes the trials of the Brotherhood. In addition, your Creature gains an apprentice to raise as his own, and falls in love for the first time with the beautiful Eve. Only by successfully completing the challenges imposed by the Brotherhood and defeating their leader can you and your creature become the supreme rulers of Creature Isle.

Features:

  • Two new creatures: choose the sharp-toothed Crocodile, the mighty horned Rhinoceros, or any of the creatures from the original game to act as your representative on Creature Island.
  • An apprentice for your creature: Your creature gains an apprentice and a pet as it is tasked with the care of the little tyke. Teach it well and it will help your creature grow in power.
  • Fall in love with the creature of your dreams: your creature falls head-over-heels for the beautiful Eve and must win her favor by completing her labors of love.
  • Two new islands to explore: set off with your creature to explore the many wonders of Creature Isle and Graduation Island.
  • New creature skills: teach your creature a variety of new skills, including bowling, building, and playing soccer.
  • Learn new miracles: learn a host of new miracles, including speed and the defensive Cancel Creature miracle.
  • New creature trials: in order to gain acceptance into the Brotherhood of Creatures, your very own colossus must pass a series of challenges, including creature racing, dojo combat, herding, and king of the castle.

While the graphics cannot equal those of upcoming Black&White 2's, they were ahead of their time and have aged very well. Some complain of a need to micromanage their creatures or townships and depending on what your personal goals are, this can be true. However the degree of management is up to the player and more noble, or ignoble, long-term strategies require more effort and attention to detail --as they should. Black&White will reward those who take pleasure in detail, the wheres, whys and hows, and will frustrate or bore those who are looking for a fast-paced romp.

It's rewarding to discover what actions precipitate which results although there are so many variables, important variables, that players would benefit from at least a little more comprehensive detail than the manual provides. Fortunately 3rd party websites still present an overwhelming amount of information to draw upon.

Some have trouble running Black&White and/or the Creature Island expansion on Windows XP. SP2, hotfixes, Athlon processors and nVidia cards are blamed (perhaps rightly so) for their trouble, but my system incorporates all of these elements and I've yet to experience the slightest problem. Be aware that the v1.3 patch is ONLY for use with the peripheral P5 glove. This patch WILL break the game if you don't have this glove. If v1.3 was inappropriately installed, download the patch uninstaller utility, use it and install patch v1.2 instead.

All in all, I give it five stars for invention, creativity, execution and standing the test (so far) of time.

I just recently got this game in preperation for B&W 2. When I first started playing it, I absolutely loved it and would have easily given it 5 stars. After playing it for a while, I got annoyed and overwhelmed at the micro management and would have reviewed it probably at about 2 stars. But now after getting used to it and 30 plus hours of play, I think 4 is right.

The game starts out with a very helpful tutorial that shows you the basic controls, how to cast spells, and taking care of the people. You later pick the creature you want and it helps you in training him and taking care of him also. After you get through that, you then go to a town where you will need to start your own civilization. This is where you may get frustrated because your people always need food, homes, children, and buildings. A smart thing to do is build plenty farms before bulding homes or children no matter how much they complain because eventually there will not be enough food in the few farms to supply the villige store (where the food and wood is stocked) so you will be constantly hovering over the store supplying food (very annoying). With the Deluxe version of B&W, it comes with several patches that fixes a ton of problems. One major issue that it will fix is that your wirshippers will not eat like horses any more so you will get to pay less attention to them. Install these before playing the game because it comes in as a HUGE help.

There are 2 things that kept me from giving this game 5 stars even after disliking it so much at first.

One is that it crashes every few times I play. Sometimes it will go for hours on end without a jitter but sometimes it will crash twice within 5 minutes. I am running it on a Windows 98 PC with 512MB RAM and an old NVIDIA Video card.

This game is very fun. To get it to run you should install these 2 things:Service pack 2 and Black and White patch 1.2. Also I would recomend on XP that you have 192MEGS of RAM instead of 64. Now the game: You play as a god. You quickly see a angel and monster hanging around that are your good and evil consinese. They provide some advice. Basiclly you help people or scare/kill them. You quickly choose from a creature.You can choose from a nurturing cow, a smart ape,and a strong tiger. No matter what creature you choose you will probally want to train it to be violent or peacefull. In the game you come across several sidequests. Yet later in the game you can learn miracles, which your creature can learn to. My 2 problems are: The creatures take forever to grow, and gestures(a way of casting miracles)are hard to cast.

I installed XP last week and I've been trying out a lot of games. Black & White always wowed me and now on XP with the 1.2 patch it works mighty fine. I had not problems whatsoever. In fact, it runs better than Win98SE because I was unable to alter the graphic options. Now I can play in higher res and with more detail with XP going and a ATI 9700 video card. I'm using an older version of the game and don't have the add on yet. Another patch, 1.3, is for people who have this special glove that really looks as if it would enhance the game. This game designer almost never disappoints me. Since my Amiga days I've bought most of his games from Populous to this. Keep em coming! :)

Black-and- White is a simulation game released in 2001. the player takes on the role of a "God." The controls are simple and intuitive and the game can be played with a mouse, or the keyboard, or a combination of both. Gameplay revolves around the completion of the mission triggered by "scrolls." of those missions can be resolved it is extremely variable. In almost every situation, number of choices some are "good" and some are "evil." This gives the game a wide degree of replayability as the effects of the choices you make are played out across the villagers that "believe" in you.

One of the more unique aspects of gameplay in Black and White is the player's creature. The creature is a large anthropomorphized animal possessed of its own artificial intelligence. Its behavior a shaped by what the player does and what the player teaches it is acceptable for it to do. In black-and-white one, training the creature requires patience, practice, and trial and error. But the difficulty involved in teaching it, comes with a lot of reward when you watch the creature become that kind of "person" that you wanted it to be.

By today's standards, the graphics are a bit limited, but the overall look of the game still manages to seem cool to me even after nine years. One of my all-time favorite games, I was more than pleased to discover that it could run on my brand-new computer. ( Windows 7 operating system, with ATI HD graphics).

The deluxe version comes with black-and-white, the expansion pack Creature's Isle, the game's only significant patch, and a "making of black-and-white" e-book.
