The world is what you make it in From Dust, this game gives you the potential to be like a God with creation. You can build mountains, divert rivers, channel lava flows, and expand the land of your tribe. From Dust is currently on available on the Xbox 360 and coming to the PC and it's an artful return to the games like Populous.
Every level introduces you to a new map full of challenges, Nature is often against you and your people with frequent tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and wildfires. Scattered throughout the land are totems which you build your villages around. These totems often give you powers to dry out the land preventing floods, gather up more land water of lava, extinguish fires and a whole lot more.
You can also discover new knowledge that can be passed from villager to villager that will help protect your people. For the most part your villagers are smart, you can't control them directly, but you can send them on missions. But there are times you will watch your villagers walk into their own death or get stuck but that doesn't happen too often.
From Dust is fun for the first 10 minutes and then you'll look up at the clock and realise you've been playing this game for 6 hours only to build a wall of lava. It is time consuming and very hard to put down in the best of ways, we give this game 8 stars out of 10.
