||Evil Genius is a single player real-time strategy and simulation video game developed by Elixir Studios and published by Sierra Entertainment, in which you play as an evil genius who is on a quest for world domination. You start the game by picking one of three evil geniuses- Maximilian, Alexis, or Shen Yu. You then are put onto an island with a huge mountain, of which you use to build your lair in. The lair only starts with an entrance, and an outdoor safe to get you started. You than have to build your lair into whatever you want it to be, but beware, government agencies will send agents to try and sneak into your lair and find proof of criminal activity. You can then either capture the agents and interrogate them, or just straight up eliminate them, and hide the bodies in a freezer.
Evil Genius is definitely a game that plays in a way that I personally have not seen done before. The amount of things you can build in your lair is pretty amazing, and all the missions you are able to do in the game to either earn more cash, or even gain some minions with certain specialties, is pretty awesome as well. I have enjoyed this game time and time again, and still play it on occasion to this very day.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this game to almost anyone. Its not a very hard game at all, so most people can pick it up and get the hang of most of the game fairly quickly. If you have never played Evil Genius, I suggest you pick it up on Steam whenever its possible.
