Summary

Get Risk I it's better!

The Good

Simultaneous attack by two or more armies is great, reduces vaste piles of units. Should have been in Risk I, difficult with Generals I suppose. Also two countries combining to defeat a third then fighting each other is good.

The Bad

Lack of maps. Risk I has World, Europe, America and Asia, this only has Asia. NO SAVE OPTION!!!!!! No Generals, no forts, no tactics! Cruddy alliance system. 3D fighting, what a waste of time, we want strategy!

The Bottom Line

Minimal replay value. Can only win by chance of where your units start, and if you can grab a big continent before anyone else.
