My favorite MAJOR god is Hades, with his shades of the dead thing-y. My favorite MINOR god is the uber l33t Athena/Dionysus combo. I always win with against the uber crappay computer with bull minotaur/20 headed hydra combo. :D
The overall most useful god power is Shifting Sands. I played this at my friends house and i was about to come under an uber big attack, so i simply used shifting sands and sent my enemies to an undeveloped island. Then i sent a transport filled with angry Axemen and Spearmen before my enemy could pick the units up.
i like forrest fire,just to watch those people and buidings burn,its fun especially when its a big patch of forrest,but the most effective in my opinion is earthquake when used wisely.
Yes I do agree the shifting sands power is quite useful - and the earthquake is to very powerful... I have so much to do I can't play as much as I'd like - I think I'll put in for a vacation from work and play on my vacation ;) :D
My favorate god power is the Metor one so far as for gods my fav is hadies and zeus.
I like the underworld passage, its soo evil. The enemy is just minding its own buisness when a pegasus flies over and *thump* the exit to the passage appears in the base followed by a huge army thundering though into the base. mwahahahha :D
