Gods - LoI - Review @ Gaming Excellence
It's been quite a while since we've seen a GODS review but Blue's is pointing one out at Gaming Excellence. The score is a low 5.8/10, although the text indicates the game is merely "mediocre", not "bad":
As you travel through various areas in the game, you’ll be treated to the first-person view (reminiscent of the Might and Magic series), as Vivien, while the party members acquired through travel are displayed across the bottom. From this interface, you can manage your inventory, check your stats (and raise them, if you’ve levelled up), and use alchemical recipes, a simple but innovative system that can be used with a variety of ingredients, fuel, and mana to create a variety of potions and other results. Travelling is easy enough, and looks decent, if not a little bland. There is also very limited interactivity to the game, as you can not actually enter buildings, so shopkeepers just stand outside, waiting for you to speak to them.

Gods - LoI - SE Coming to GameTap on Sept 20th!
Check it out here:
The world of Bellarion has been ravaged by war -- not war between mortals, but between gods! After 1000 years, the stalemate was broken by the god of Darkness, Mortagorn, whose priests now wield a power against which no magic, mortal or divine, can protect. You take the role of Vivien, avatar of the god of fire Arswaargh, as you search for a countermeasure against Mortagorn’s dark power.
You have to be a paying member to play this, but given the amazing amount of stuff coming to the service it is getting more compelling every week!

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.

Gods - LoI - Review @ GameSpot
Slamming the story as "ridiculous", GameSpot has reviewed Gods: Lands of Infinity and awarded a score of 4/10:
Role-playing games don't come much cheaper or generic than Gods: Lands of Infinity. This by-the-numbers RPG isn't so much awful as it is afflicted by a total lack of innovation by the developers at Cypron Studios and bargain basement production values. With that said, this is still a relatively competent take on the genre that you might enjoy, depending on your tolerance for tedium, as well as some of the goofiest voice acting and dialogue ever committed to an RPG.

Gods - LoI - Review @ HookedGamers
HookedGamers has a positive review of Gods: LoI. The final score is 8.0, and here is a snippit:
While replayability rarely scores very high with me I find Gods: Lands of Infinity scores well in this area. After finishing the game I felt compelled to go back and see what choices other than my original ones would cause, as there were quite a few different choices you could make. Gods: Lands of Infinity is a highly enjoyable game that defies the 'tiredness' that we see so often in other Role Playing Games. If you are looking for something different, this game is for you.

Gods - LoI - Kyla Cole Special Edition Features
Cypron Studios answered our question whether the SE will be available an update for the regular version of Gods:
...Special Edition of Gods will be new version of Gods with Kyla Cole as main hero.
The special edition will contain Kyla as main hero and lot of improvements players asked for:
- debbuged version with no bugs (or just a minimum ;)
- new improved animations
- better graphic
- brand new soundtrack
- improved sound effects
- we would like to improve the alchemy too
- the retail version will probably contain Kyla Cole calendar (like wallpapers we have just released) for 2007 and Gods OST (original soundtrack CD)
There are still many countries (US, UK, France...) where Gods:LoI hasn't been released yet so we want to attract publishers/players with new, improved GODS:LOI SPECIAL VERSION. And, this game will not contain any sexual content! We are going to release an official PRESS about GODS LOI SE features soon.

Gods: Lands of Infinity - Wrap Report @ RPG Vault
When we first decided to create Gods: Lands of Infinity, we wanted to make a brand new kind of a fantasy game - something wondrous, adventurous, entertaining, exciting - something that you would remember. The first and the most important aspect of any game concept is entertainment, and the feel of an adventure. We wanted to avoid knotty game calculations, lots of tables, statistics, and long, boring dialogues as we assumed that if a player wants to play, he doesn't want to read a 600-page book. We allow the player to walk in a fanciful environment, to fight monsters, to wield mighty weapons and amazing spells, to meet interesting fantasy characters and share their destinies. The final effect we got from our "alchemy room" is a smooth, catchy and original game that combines various features from other RPGs and tries to avoid their negative experiences. We wanted to forge an adventure!
