Birthdays the Beginning reviews and comments

I thought the Idea behind it was really great, but omg, the Implementation leaves a lot to be desired. If you Start the Game for the first Time, you are faced with The choice to change the Settings or start the Game. After the Start Of the game, a long-winded Sequence of dialogue follows, which explains the very complicated and unintuitive Control of the Game As well as the game mechanics in basic Features. In the process, one is implanted with high-altitude woo, which represents the Voice of the Interlocutor. In addition, you have to remember long and then only when it has been pronounced that you are allowed to really test what you have just got Popped in front of the License. Then there is a long-winded wait for the evolution to take its Course and have created the right Creatures. First Tutorial Ending, it follows a Screen congratulating me ... And don't let yourself click away. In the End, I closed the Game by Taskbar, took a Look at the Forums, where a lot of people talk about the Devs not actively developing the Project anymore, bugs remaining in the Game, etc ... I returned the Game. For the first Time in my Steam membership. That says it all.

Better than Thought! (Spore & Reus Players will be delighted!) + Hello Together, so first I watched Several Youtube videos about this Game and was quite quickly convinced to buy it NOT. I thought well packs on the Wish List, you'll see how much it will cost. Then the Moment of Truth discount .. Still £30 hmm. Watch reviews! ... Negative, Negative, Negative ... Hmm Ach No matter 2 Hours testing Wenns crash or doof is easy to give back. Yes and now it's around 5 in the morning and I've got the Story through. To the Game It's exactly what it Shows in the Trailer. You are God and change the World through Temperature water and Evolution. I could hardly believe it when my first Jellyfish was on the way. Every Progress makes a Happy one! The first Land living, the first Bird hach I was happy. One is well advised by step by step and never feels left alone but not besotted. I even thought this Game will be through quite quickly, until the Dino it's not far or and then all of a sudden the Game tells me, let's see if we can create People! Yes you hear right you even help the Crowd people to grow to the lord of The Race! Negatives:-no Customization of Graphic Options Conclusion: Test it 2 Hours! I only decided against this Game based on the Reviews as many say low Fps or Crashes but that's not true. I have a very old Pc, Games like Gta V Games I play with 20 Fps on lowest Graphics and this Game runs 100% one-way free No lags no Crashes good Fps! Therefore, I can only repeat myself and leave it to everyone if they test it 2 Hours and return it if necessary or you are waiting for more Content and Patches! I wouldn't let the fingers go away if you liked To play games like Spore or Reus.
