Summary

Political simulator of fictitious country in Latin America.

The Good

Overall presentation is at very high level, user interface remarks and it would be good even for today's games. The game is navigated by keyboard, many nice digitized pictures are in black&white. Game has no sounds or music but artificial intelligence is very interesting. The other good point is that you can always check your performance statistics on reports and graphs screen for the whole period of your presidency.

The Bad

The only thing I didn't like at this game was that the play-time is limited to 4 years cycle. Game always ends with final review of your period even if you were elected as a new president again.

The Bottom Line

Hidden Agenda is very good political simulation of fictitious country Chimerica in Latin America. I takes place in 1980's when the old dictator was overthrown and you were introduced to the president office. Your purpose as the president is to maintain political course in dangerous waters of Chimerican politics. It is important not to take extreme decisions (right-wing or left-wing) since your support by newly established parties is quite unstable. You have 4 advisors (ministers) for internal affairs, foreign affairs, agriculture and defence. You can also visit and consult various persons throughout the country of Chimerica. Your goal is to survive 4 years in office and while in office take country through necessary reforms.
