Summary

Great idea, but almost no game.

The Good

The concept is great. It's a turn based strategy, where you have to send nukes and push propaganda in order to defeat your opponents who are actually a parody of real politic leaders. You're get into game very fast and addict to it quickly. Characters are very funny and charismatic. Dr. Strangelove reference in the beginning is quite smart.

The Bad

There is no multiplayer. Only one game mode. Player versus 4 AI players. AI is acting randomly and there is no diplomacy. Sometimes they can ignore you at all, or attack you altogether. If they will attack you together, you have no chance to win. Bad luck. Or good if they will ignore you. The game's mechanics could be better too. Game is so simple, there are almost no way to become more powerful than your opponents. You even can't control what to build, you just press "build" and game randomly build planes, nukes or defence system. Sometimes it may lead to stockpile (which is dangerous to have, it might explode when enemy hit you) of planes and rockets, but no nukes. And planes and rockets are useless without nukes. Also sounds are pretty annoying.

The Bottom Line

This game is more a demo version of the game it could be. Pity, it had potential.
