SummaryNot a graphically attractive game, but still a ton of fun to play.
The GoodIt is an exellent computerized version of the classic board game Risk. It has all the fun of the board game, without having to roll all those dice. This lets you concentrate on strategy, instead of trying to remember how many dice you get to roll. The best thing about the game, though, is the satisfaction in seeing a board which started out being a hodgepodge of different colors slowly become uniformly yours, untill it is one solid color.
The BadThe graphics were weak, even for their time. The command to end a turn (Count or count up) is rather obscure, and the attack syntax can be confusing at times.
