Virtual Villagers: New Believers
Not A Game You Can Beat Quickly
Fans of Virtual Villagers will like this addition. Like all the others, the game plays in real time and so your villagers continue without you when you leave your computer. The masked heathens give it a more challenging twist than the others, making tasks slightly more difficult to complete. Also there seems to be more objects to find for the collections giving you more to do while you wait for your little people to finish their tasks.

Not the best virtual villagers game.
I liked this one, but compared to the earlier games, it's not that good. The "heathens" are mostly annoying and don't really add anything to gameplay. The rest of the gameplay is just same old really, so recommended if you liked the other games.

Similar to other Virtual Villagers, still enjoyable.
This is a good addition to the series. It felt the same as the others, except you also have to convert heathens. If you are not sick of the series yet, this one will be worth your while. I enjoyed it.

GREAT SIMS TYPE GAME
I REALLY LIKE THIS GAME I JUST WISH YOU COULD FIND A VILLAGER FASTER. WHEN YOU HAVE 100 OF THEM HAVING TO FLIP THREW ONE AT A TIME TO FIND THE ONE YOU WANT. NEED SOMTHING TO MAKE IT FASTER. WITH THERE HAIR NOT CHANGEABLE AND SKIN COLOR CHANGEABLE THIS GIVE YOU LIMITTED OUTFITS TO PUT ON THEM MAKING IT HARD TO DISTINGUISH WHO IS WHO

I played this quite a long time ago, and I don't want to play it again.
But I remember the tutorial being poor, and the gameplay frustrating and much more difficult than the previous games.
I spent at least 80% of my free trial running away from masked men, unable to do anything.
I also really question the creators choice of plot... I'm really surprised it hasn't caused more controversy and offence.
The whole plot of this game is to destroy a culture.
Your villagers encounter another tribe, but they are 'savages' and we must destroy their totem poles, strip them of their masks, and convert them to our religion.
I'm not terribly offended or outraged, but I am against the inclusion of this concept in a game I played as a child.

Own all and this one is the poorest one made yet
There are too many puzzels and not enough help. The yellow heathens are a pain in the neck and the game promotes more frustration then fun. Even after visiting the forum and reading all that I could the feed back and help was more confusing then the game, I love all the other virtual villager games and own them...if I could exchange this one I would....or I would strongly suggest a better help system and options section for those who like to have fun and for those who rather have the high pressure type games. I am sorry to say how disapointed I am...I was looking forward to having as much fun as I have had with the other games. Maybe your next one will be better. I myself will not be so quick to buy because of past experiences of previous games. D. Madison

Didn't convert me to be a virtual villagers fan!
I have downloaded the free trials for all of the virtual villagers series games at one point or another and still can't see the attraction. The villagers are slow as mud and it's difficult to figure out what task each villager is currently doing. The idea of having to convert heathen villagers was very interesting, but I just can't bring myself to like this game series.

I dislike the virtual style of game. I dislike the little robot characters you have to move around or the repetitive work they do.
