SummaryAn overall good game--worth the money
The GoodWhat I liked about this game was mostly the SameTime risk rule. Many say this makes it an entirely new game. Well, no, it doesn't. It changes so much, yes, but it's still got a risk flavor too it. You can tell it's just a variant of the game. But it's a great idea. It's obviously the biggest change, and it's the best. I like the new world map as well, the territories they added and make the game more interesting at times, but you still get the old risk board feel, and the same strategies still kind of stick, in a way. The AI is good, I like it. It's worth it, and to me that is the entire point of putting the game on a computer, so that you can have AI's when there is not enough real players to play risk.---oh and one more thing I like about this game, they didn't try to improve the obviously flawed Ultimate Risk game, they made a new variant that is way better. Simple is always good.
The BadI was disappointed that there wasn't more map options, and that the variant ( though still very fun and worth it) didn't have more to it. I wish they had added something like terrain interference or something. Nothing nearly as complicated as Ultimate Risk of course, but something to add more flavor and more choices for the players.
