Nothing good ever lasts long. At least, that’s the lesson you’d have to take away from the new Black & White 2 expansion Battle of the Gods. After securing Eden and making everything nice and peaceful (or nice and burning depending on your temperament), you thought you could settle back for your day of rest. Not so. The pesky Aztecs have managed to call forth a new god to challenge your supremacy on the islands of Eden. Now you’ll have to face off against him and his undead army.

The original Black & White 2 never really made you feel like you were competing with another deity. In the absence of any sort of rivalry between two opposing gods, victory in the last game was sort of inevitable, no matter how poorly you managed your people. That’s not exactly the case in Battle of the Gods. Here you’ll find yourself presented with an immediately hostile adversary. To be fair, the challenge still isn’t terribly overwhelming but it does provide a little more excitement and personality than was found in the previous game.
