If you like Dungeon Keeper 2 you may like Startopia.

Its quite a bit different as far as setting but the overall gameplay is very similar.

Its one of my favorite games ever. I've played it several times.

Sadly, the developer, Mucky Foot, is no longer in business.

EDIT: WOW... if Wikipedia is actually right this game only sold 15,000 copies.

What a shame. Its an excellent game and has more character than any other RTS\Sim I've played.

Here is a big fan site:

Holy crap, I never knew that. Apparently, Mucky Foot was formed by ex-Bullfrog employees. Which would explain why it was similar to Dungeon Keeper, Theme Park and Syndicate Wars.

I loved building an army of vampires in Dungeon Keeper 2. Using the vampires and the possesion power you could fight off hoards of enemies.

And the Capt. is right: Startopia is a great game.
