Dear Leader is exactly what players expect it to be. It is a solid, yet mediocre game that lives mostly on the humour. It sometimes goes a bit over the line, but the comedic effect will make fans of dark humour forgive it, and those who do not enjoy dark satire should really not expect anything more out of the game. Whether or not it is worth a look into it bodes down to one simple question: do you find jokes about dictatorships funny? If yes, this game is for you. If not, it might be best to stay away, but for those who enjoy it, it will give them all that they want - maybe even more than they asked for sometimes.
So in short, Dear Leader has a diverse gameplay and it can keep you occupied for a fairly long time. The story seems rather odd but it has dialogue and a fair share of cinematics. I am sure most people would be intent on ignoring this part and focus on the gameplay for a short satisfaction experience every now and then.
Wonderfully irreverent satire held back by clunky controls and grindy, repetitive mission structure. Dear Leader is a smart, well-timed release that will appeal to those with their fingers on the pulse of politics, but only for so long.
