Demigod is not perfect. Some (including Stardock) would say that it isn’t even done. But graphically speaking, it’s a thing of beauty. The scale and design of the gameplay arenas are excellent. The graphical fidelity is superb. It is simply...

Demigod has seen a rather dynamic development cycle. The game, an action strategy at heart, does not have any kind of a single player story or campaign. Instead, it is very similar to the popular WarCraft 3 mod, Defence of the Ancients (DOTA). For...

The Real Time Strategy (RTS) genre is filled to the brim with war and fantasy games that, while typically fun, fail to bring anything new to the genre. That is what makes Demigod such a breath of fresh air. It is a strictly multiplayer RTS that brings...

Demigod is gloriously bombastic, the introductory cutscene intoning the slight back story in its best, booming Christopher Lee voice. One of the gods has been destroyed after leaking company secrets. As one of eight monstrous, magical demigods,...

The main problem with this game is that it is extremely unreliable when players try to connect to the multiplayer service. This is a shame because this is where the majority of player’s time will be spent. Hopefully this flaw will be fixed as this...

As you may have heard, Demigod was released almost a week before the official date by Gamestop. As a result, the folks at Stardock ended up rushing the game out so that everyone who bought it could play it, and so for the first couple of days, since...

Theres a dilemma in reviewing PC games that come out broken for some reason or another. Yes, it would be nice to give the publisher and developer time to fix things. But on the other hand, consumers are being asked to turn over their hard-earned...

I've never been huge on real-time strategy games. I think at least part of that has been the fact that, in addition to gold, lumber, vespene, and whatever other resources I need to keep track of, the primary commodity seems to be my own attention....
