Well it’s been 1 week now since beta was released. I can say I’m mostly done with Evil Genius Online. I really tried to give it a chance, but I can’t find a reason anymore to open the game.
It’s just a grind when you open the game:
- Click to get your gold
- Click to ask other users for resources you can’t get otherwise
- Assign them to new tasks
- Send minions to bed or they are useless
- Only build basic items as anything nice cost diamonds (real money currency)
After doing the above you close the window and wait. A few hours later rinse and repeat. What’s the point? There isn’t anything fun about it that makes me want to come back. I really wanted to get behind the game and support it if/until an Evil Genius 2. I’ll keep reporting on the development and watch for a real Evil Genius 2, but I won’t be playing as much unless they go through some major changes.
