About the Game

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.

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!

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

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.

The tutorial is loaded with narrow white-on-green text. The whole game seemed to be squished into a weird aspect ratio. It crashed. I was sort of interested, but no. It's a big mess.
