Is Black and White 1 the best singleplayer RTS game on the PC?

Not in my opinion. I'd vote for Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War.

It's definitely great, but it has quite a few problems too.

It definitely tried too hard to keep the game simple, resulting in more trouble than necessary doing many simple things like placing buildings or even teaching your beast spells.

On the topic of the beast, the game spends so long hyping up your beast, you get it for a short while, then the game takes it away from you all for a compelling reason to hate the opposing god.

Black & White is a fantastic game but it was being pulled in too many directions resulting in a very uneven experience.

Never heard of this game before, so that being the first thing I saw was funny. I been playing RTS since Age of Empires 1, so I don't see how you can call me a child.

Company of Heroes is my favorite.

yes it does have MP but I'm talking about the campaign.

Rise of Nations is the best.

Black and White is fun, but of the limited number of RTS games I've played, I like the Westwood games better and I have to imagine many others are better single player too. It had a major problem in later missions of stalling and becoming very slow. When you have a huge influence and it still doesn't reach the next village, it gets frustrating.

Black and White is much more of a god game than an RTS.
