Description

RISK: The Game of Global Domination is a conversion of the classic board game Risk.

The CD-ROM version of the game features an exact conversion of the Classic board game against human or AI opponents, as well as Ultimate Risk, a more complex game where a completely new strategy is needed, involving Generals, forts and different terrain types.

Other features include new maps, the challenging Blind Risk, fully animated battle scenes and a second CD to allow easy network gaming.
