Amazing

Just so you know, it's in the LIVE arcade, not a disc. The "god" you are playing as is this force that the villagers created known as "The Breath." There is some violence, but it's from natural disasters with a high up view. Also you are trying to protect the tribes men from these disasters by building blockades with lava, get ahold of knowledge stones, etc.It does require thinking, especially on the territory "Movements" where you are inside the crater of a giant, active volcano. And if you want some thing where you can create your own island, then play the game. The last level is like that. It's small, but worth the Microsoft Points.

Careless and disapointing

From Dust is a truly unique game, built around an innovative and clever concept. The console editions received fairly positive reviews, which is fair enough. However, Ubisoft recently ported this title to the PC. Never in my life have I played a game so carelessly designed. There are absolutely no graphical settings so unless you have some £1000 gaming rig, you're going to lag. Mouse sensitivity is awful, with even the lowest sensitivity being jerky and overly reactive. The gameplay is also quite disappointing; it's incredibly linear and there are no sandbox settings. All in all, a very poor game. If you're using a console, go ahead but if you're a PC gamer, give this game a wide berth.
