Impossibly Fun

I had forgotten just how much fun can be had with the PC game Impossible Creatures. This weekend, Teisha and I went on a bender and played about… 8 hours of it. It has such compelling features:

  • A hugely (maybe impossibly) vast selection of combinations to build your army of strange creatures– from kangaroos and rats to chameleons and meese!
  • The graphics, sounds, and especially the voice acting is just superb.
  • The computer AI is good, but not infalliable (and the single player plot is compelling)
  • and of course, the critters are adorable.

I always wonder if this game could have found a larger audience, and maybe drawn some people away from Blizzard’s monoply on RTS games. It’s better than Warcraft 3 in almost every sense I care to measure.

So, what fun games have YOU been playing?
