Babel Rising Review

 

How does Ubisoft's god sim play? Well, depends on the controller you pick up. Get the full verdict on Babel Rising.

Easy button controls ; Lots of replay value

Babel Rising is a solid buy, through and through...as long as you’re not expecting a solid Kinect experience. Simply put, it’s a fun game with a controller. The Survival mode gives the gamer endless hours of fun, and the campaign can be challenging as...
