Gods - LoI - Review @ Out of Eight
The latest review of the 'Special Edition' of Gods: Lands of Infinity is from Out of Eight, giving it 5/8 which equates to "Buy it if you really like the genre". This is much more positive than the GameSpot review but still calls the game "decidedly average".
The battles in the game are turn-based, much like the Final Fantasy series. Each turn, you can choose an attack, spell, item from your inventory, a formation change, or defend an attack. Complicating the process is the use of action points that prevents you from attacking every turn and requires you to defend (usually resulting in just as much damage) every couple of turns. The AI doesn’t seem to play by the same rules, as I rarely noticed them defending on any turn. The enemies you will encounter have a very basic AI that usually consists of attacking and the occasional spell. The combat is not very exciting and it lasts a really long time; the enemies are very powerful when you start a new game and you’ll need a constant supply of health potions just to survive against even the most basic foe.
