Recensies

“Adjusting and balancing policies is what makes Democracy 2 tick, and it’s astoundingly compulsive”
4/5 – GamesRadar

“I cannot emphasize enough how addictive this game is”
GamingShogun

“ If you’ve been looking for a superb abstraction of political operations, then Democracy 2 is definitely a game you should look at.”
6/8 – OutOf8

Info over het spel

Democracy 2 is the ultimate political strategy / simulation game. The game simulates the motivations, loyalties and desires of everyone in the country. As president or prime minister, it's your job to balance the need for income from taxes against the demands of the voters. Do you want your country to be an eco-friendly green paradise? Or a capitalist utopia? Will you pander to the patriots, the liberals or the religious pressure groups? Can you keep crime under control without destroying the civil liberties of your citizens? And can you keep good diplomatic relations with other nation states?

Despite the complex simulation underneath, Democracy 2 is easy to pick up. An innovative user-interface shows the relationships between everything in the game just by hovering your mouse over an object. The game is 'turn based', so it's the ideal game for those who prefer an intelligent, thoughtful game.

The key to the game are the policy 'sliders' that let you adjust how your government runs. You can raise or lower taxes with a slider, or even adjust education policy, or workers rights in exactly the same way. This system makes for a game that is easy to learn and difficult to master.

Democracy 2 covers the whole range of political opinion and policy, from debates over stem cell research and school prayer, through the provision of state health care and benefit payments to the unemployed, right across to tax shelters for the wealthy, the death penalty, military spending and civil rights. Regardless of where you stand on political topics, you will have the option to take control of the government and put your ideology to the test.

Democracy 2 is a ♥♥♥♥ game. Like anything made by Cliff it is overloaded with his broken world view, and petty elitism.

The game is just responses and sliders so this contaminating has produced a game in his world vision completely disconnected from any reality and punishing to those that don't fit in his twisted vision.

So like any game this devolves into a struggle between wanting to play as you would like while being forced into the petty confines of the creator. It feels like grabbing a sandbox games only to run into invisible walls at the beginning

Overall 5/10

Pros:
- The idea behind it is good, you get to play a government and using different policies you try to get reelected while improving a country.
- Some concepts behind it are solid, both in terms of ecomics and social policies.
- It is easy to understand what each polciy does.

Cons:
- It is probably too easy to beat, just a bunch of algorithms to beat.
- There's only one way to "win" and that is pretty much going full "social democrat", nothing else seem to work.
- Very few scenarios.
- The consequences of some actions are totally off, like raising VAT to 70% and seeing your opinion rating go up.

I truly like the idea behind it, and I hope the author gets backing to develop it into 1) a real game, made by pros and 2) a more realistic simulation, but as it is now I cannot reccomend it.

A very limited challenge, even at hardest setting it's all too easy to win. Nice concept, but very limited content. Might keep you happy with its different political slant for a day or so. But don't expect much more than that. Recommended if picked up for a super bargain price, and you're happy paying for a single day's entertainment!

The people that made this are extremely narrow-minded, there wasn't a single, even moderately center-right policy to implement, that didn't smack of religion. I know that in their minds, they believe that their policies are good, and that no others should even be considered, but it simply isn't true. Best find a different political sim, this series will never be remotely close to reality.

Better as a lesson of how interconnected things are, and how quickly things can go stupid with just a few bad mistakes, than as a simulation of real politics. Still can prove quite fun til you figure out how to tweak the folks to get them to do what you want. At some point, it loses its charm, but you may have a bit more respect for your politicians by then, if you're not wondering why they haven't implemented all the policies you did to have a socialist utopia. 6.5/10
