RISK is an extremely addictive strategy oriented game with a load of options and adjustable gameplay features. This game can definitely absorb a good amount of your time and brain processing power. A typical game of Ultimate RISK with a few players and all of the computer opponents enabled could take a few days to complete! Good thing there is a save feature... I liked the fact that the game was so flexible with the configuration options. You can easily customize each outing to give you a fresh new game each time you play. The computer AI is no slouch either...in hard mode I was continually impressed with the moves that it executed...for the most part. If you love strategy games, especially those that let you include up to eight human players with, then get RISK. It translates incredibly well from a board to console game and should provide you with a good challenge and a nice value for your gaming dollar.
If you like the board game of Risk, you should enjoy this game. It is best when played in multiplayer mode with your buddies but it is playable in single player mode as well. Some nice options and different game modes should keep you interest for a bit. In the end, this game may not be the best choice for everyone but fans of the game should enjoy it.

[The] in-depth gameplay will have to be enough to immerse you because Risk's visuals aren't very compelling. Aesthetically, Hasbro could have done better than its sparsely detailed 2D graphics. But, despite the absence of lavish eye-candy, Risk is a must-have for fans of the board game, and a good title for strategy game fans to try.
Player One
Bref, Risk est le soft idéal pour s'initier aux jeux de stratégie et aux wargames en particulier.
Un jeu passionnant pour qui aime le jeu, malgré la qualité moyenne de la réalisation, et super pas indispensable pour les autres.
Hasbro Interactive has provided a near-perfect translation from the board game to the PlayStation. It has managed to preserve the style of play perfectly, without adding too many annoying new features to distract from Risk's sublime simplicity and speed.
Mega Fun
Ein bißchen schade finde ich es schon: Die hohe Erwartung, die ich an die PS-Version von Risiko geknüpft hatte, konnte nicht erfüllt werden. Mal abgesehen von der langweiligen Grafik und dem üblichen Gedudel fehlt dem PS-Risiko einfach die Atmosphäre, die durch das gesellige Beisammensein um ein Spielbrett zustande kommt. Seht Ihr großzügig darüber hinweg, so erwartet Euch ein solides rundenorientiertes Strategiespiel, das mit solchen Hochkarätern wie Command & Conquer und Warcraft 2 nicht annähernd mithalten kann. Auch der neue Ultimativ-Modus kann nicht die nötigen Akzente setzen. Die Wahl der Taktiken ist nur eine Spielerei, da Ihr die Gegentaktik Eures Gegners nicht seht. Somit ist Risiko nur etwas für den Mehrspieler-Modus.
Malgré sa réalisation tout juste acceptable, cette adaptation réussie de Risk reste plaisante à jouer, grâce à un mode Classique fidèle ainsi qu'à un mode Extrême qui renouvelle le concept d'une fort belle manière. Il y a d'ailleurs fort à parier que c'est ce dernier mode qui accaparera le plus clair de votre temps : il est plus riche, plus profond, et constitue le vrai intérêt du titre en le plaçant au-delà du simple portage.
It’s a shame, because the board game really is great, and this game could have been so good too. It’s just that with all the other PlayStation wargame titles around – where you control every aspect of the battles and watch your massed armies marching across detailed maps, rolling dice to decide which flag vanishes from a specific location just isn’t much fun!
