I love this game. I had bought it originally years ago probably 10+ years but had stopped playing due to adulting responsibilities. While talking to my husband the other day I became nostalgic and just had to buy it again, my husband never heard of Black and White but loved my description of the game. Hands down one of my favorite games, if you enjoy building civilizations, leading people while protecting and engaging in battle I would highly recommend Black and White as well as Black and White 2. Please do not let the release date stop you from getting this game, Black and White came before it's time and is still extremely fun and still relevant. I hope to see an android version soon. And thank you to the shippers that included Creatue Isle expansion pack it was a pleasant surprise and greatly appreciated.
