Slijp de dolken, wet de messen: de pc-versie van Diplomacy verheerlijkt dubbelspel, intriges en verraad.

Diplomacy ist die bisher beste Brettspielumsetzung aus dem Hause Microprose/Hasbro. Trotz der relativ langen und intensiven Einarbeitungsphase (vor allem für völlige Neulinge) wird sich das Spiel auf digitalem Weg viele neue Verbündete schaffen.

Es gilt, mit Bündnissen, Intrigen und Lügen an die Macht in Europa zu gelangen. Hasbros Brettspielumsetzung ist grafisch gut gelungen - die Europakarte ist übersichtlich und zoombar, die Gegenspieler werden durch digitalisierte Personen dargestellt.

The game is crafted very well, and it was made very well. Unfortunately, AI problems bring the rating down. Microprose obviously made this game for those who are starting to play Diplomacy, which is a good thing, but for someone like me, it was too easy. I think there should be more Diplomacy players out there, and I am confident that there are a lot more people out there like me that get bored with real time strategies, but love the war and, well, strategic strategies.

Jeu de plateau ayant connu un certain succès dès la date de son lancement en 1958, Diplomacy a récemment été adapté par Paradox Interactive sur PC. Un nouveau wargame donc pour ce développeur suédois à qui l'on doit entre autres Hearts of Irons 1 et 2 ou encore Europa Universalis 1 et 2.

In der regeltreuen Brettspielumsetzung verschieben Sie abstrakte Armeen auf der Europakarte. Dazwischen verhandeln Sie über Icons mit den KI-Feldherren - das ist umständlich und unfair gelöst. Nur für harte Fans.

Even if its options sound good, you'd probably be better off just using the numerous free online Diplomacy resources for your gaming fix. More to the point, if you were looking for a good single-player version of Diplomacy, then you'll be sadly disappointed by the game. The artificial intelligence and interface problems are compounded by the bugs and a host of other flaws such as stuttering video, flaky unit selection in certain territories, and terrible tutorials, all of which serve to make the game an utterly forgettable remake of an undisputed classic.

Die Intelligenz der Computer-Gegner ist bescheiden und selbst bei Mehrspieler-Partien kommt die Atmosphäre nicht wirklich zu Stande. Wo sich beim Original Freundschaften in erbitterten Hass verwandeln, Allianzen zerbrechen und nur geschicktes Vorgehen den Sieg verheißt, dominiert hier eine dümmliche KI und eine sterile Atmosphäre.

DIPLOMACY, the boardgame, was an example of game design at its best. DIPLOMACY, the computer game, is an example of how an excellent design does not guarantee a good computer translation.

While Diplomacy still receives great support from its old friends, I can't see it making many new ones in a medium which already provides numerous games with far more extensive options. I suggest the application of behavior modifiers to its parent company, Hasbro/Microprose. Come on guys, you're a computer company. Put out computer games.
