is anyone every planning on picking up this game? i just read a review on ign.com (it got a 6.5), and have honestly never heard of it, despite reading tons of websites and magazines.

Um this is Digitpress and that's a Bible game. Things like that don't get alot of respect around here.

I'm not saying it's a bad game or anything. I haven't played it so i can't comment. I'm just saying it's gonna be interesting to hear what people say about this one.

Um this is Digital Press and people around here buy games like That's So Raven if its for a system they collect for.

I saw this game too. Even thought about picking it up. I'd never willingly play it, but it may fetch a pretty penny, down the road.

Usually, the religious games end up becoming some of the more rare games for whatever system they're released on..

The Best Buy I saw this game at only had 1 copy. Haven't seen it anywhere else.

Religion games are usually at least uncommon, so Ill definately be picking this one up.

I really enjoyed a couple of the wisdom tree games on the NES :) King of Kings :-P

I grabbed the PS2 version at Target the other night. Don't know if i'm gonna open it yet. When I picked it up the GF asked me the one trivia question thats readable in the screen shot on the back. I got it right so I guess thats a good thing???

they should have made a remake of Spiritual Warrior instead. that game is pretty cool.

As remarkable as this may be, this game seems like it has the widest circulation of any religious game I have ever heard of. Target, Best Buy and TRU are all stocking it. I guess it's because it is published by Eidos which is another mystery to me. The fact that it's a Bible trivia game is going to keep it out of my collection for good.

walmart is stocking it as well. saw it there last night. definitely a surprising choice of a game for Eidos to publish. yay jeebus.

Hmmm, we seem to be getting some odd choices for games lately, with both this and the Friends game. I'd rather watch an episode of Friends than play their game and I'd be more apt to read my Bible than to play this one.

Spiritual Warfare would have been a better choice, or something similar to that. It looks about 8-10 yrs old genre. I am a believer in Christ, that's great they made a new Christian game. There's no reason why they shouldn't come out with more evangelical-based titles.
Why not right?, they make games about satan, devils, witchcraft, zodiac new age stuff, and so on.
However in best judgement, the game lacks depth, bottom line. Spiritual Warfare had a half cheeked Zelda feel, game structurewise. That should have been a better choice in my opinion.

Too bad we'll never see a Christian based fighting game. That'd be amusing. :D

Or hell, how about an RTS? LOL

I was just about to post the same thing. I've been all over town this last week scouting DS prices and then purchasing DS games, and I noticed this game prominently displayed at EVERY store I went too -- Best Buy, Toys R Us, EB Games, GameStop... ALL had this on a shelf all by itself, cover out. One of the EB's I went to even had a big "NEW!" sign near it and like nothing else.

It seems to me they are trying to market to parents worried by the whole GTA thing. Yes, I'm not kidding.

Jesus-doken?

That would be great, maybe even a crucifix fatality?

Two sides, Heaven and Hell, squaring off for control of Earth. Winning side takes the fight to the other realm. Demon and Archangel hero units. It could work.

Super 3D Noah's Ark on the SNES. It was based on the Wolfenstein-3D engine. Wolfenstein being, of course, a Jewish videogame (take out those Nazis for grampa!). I'm sure we'll next see a puzzler starring the Dali Lama.

And, you know, despite all the snickering and laughing at what is, essentially, a Simpsons' punchline ("no, you winged him, now he's a Unitarian"), some sort of strategy or world-building game based on the history of Christianity could be very good. Something Sid Meier-like. Goodness knows you'd be wading a minfield to end all minefields (Defining "winners" and "losers" in the context of religion? Very bad idea.)

I think something that actually drew upon religious traditions could make a good videogame, instead of turning it into a commodity. But that's another whole can of worms I'll be wise to avoid opening.

the irony is that ive got several copies of bible adventures for the nes and I've always gotten shit sbout them, this game on the other hand is actually worse! so, who's laughin' now bitches? honestly though, isn't this game just basically bible jeopardy? Pat Robertson should love it! "I'll take 'how to assassinate latin-american politicains for $800 Alex'"

No one remembers Afterlife (http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/afterlife)?

Not exactly the same thing, I know, but it's worth a mention.
