ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
It's a tremendously complex simulation that tests your powers of organisation, diplomacy and brinkmanship to the full. The passage of time has done nothing to diminish its appeal or challenge, even in the age of Glasnost.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
It's complex, it's involving, it's certainly thought-provoking and it's difficult to play in ten minute sessions. Set aside a lot of time and you'll get a lot of enjoyment from the game. Absorbing stuff that gives an insight into the devious world of Geopolitics.

L'équilibre de la terreur est-il de nature à éviter une - troisième - guerre mondiale ? Tenant le rôle d'une des super-puissances, vous devez gérer vos amitiés et vos inimitiés, aider militairement tel pays ou intervenir économiquement dans tel autre, fomenter des coups d'état, etc. le tout « diplomatiquement ». Un très bon wargame.

Balance of Powers gehört zu den komplexesten Simulationen, die ich kenne. Man muß sehr viel beachten und für jeden Schritt eine Unmenge an Menüs und Funktionen zu Rate ziehen. Ich halte es für sehr spannend und fesselnd, sich die verschiedenen Berichte durchzulesen, Zahlen zu vergleichen, Zeitungsausschnitte zu studieren, um eine optimale Politik zu betreiben. Wer aber die Geduld dazu nicht besitzt, wird kaum eine Chance haben und auch schnell die Lust an diesem Spiel verlieren. Im großen Geschäft der Weltpolitik darf man sich keine Fehler erlauben.
