this is a decent little time waster, each match taking 10-30 minutes. the game has one glaring omishion holding it back however, no online multiplayer. one of the reasons i bought this game was so me and my friends , who are huge fans of the board game, could play risk without actually being at eachothers homes and we were disapointed we couldnt play together. but i still like the single player. i often have it pulled up in windowed mode while working on other projects on my pc. if your a risk fan or just a fan of strategy games about world domination i say pick it up but be aware there is not multiplayer

Only $10 bucks but I'm not getting much enjoyment out of it. Enjoyed the classic version I had before the new computer. Too many clicks and not a smooth experience. For example, if you run out of units to attack with it still asks you if you want to re-enforce. With what? Little thing but there are numerous others like that. Not enough thought put into this one. I've had it 2 weeks and keep hoping I'll adjust to it but it's not happening.

Not a bad game. Nice mechanics, but don't expect any online play. Nor a 16:9 display (its either 4:3 or 3:2). However it does support pass'n'play. For those who love risk, i recommend.
In gameplay mechanics the Old Risk 2 might be better however :P.

not worth 10$, but get it in the summer sale for 5$ (albeit dishonored and tomb raider are 5$, among others)

Spent thirty dollers to play risk with friends. Theres no online. I hate my life.

The single player is terribly boring.

If you love Risk, you will love this. Wish it has some sort of multiplayer though. :-(

This is a good game for the $5 I spent on it when it was one sale. It would be even better with online multiplayer but no game is perfect. One of the best games to pass time with, and it is much quicker to play than the board game. This game does have "Hot-Seat" local multiplayer for those who are interested. Easy AI is easy, medium AI is a little tougher and Expert AI can be a pain in the ♥♥♥ if they get to choose where to start before you.

okay if you just have to have a risk game. unfortunate that it is not set up for mmo. The old PS3 Risk was a much better game.

A very unreliable game this is. I'm lucky if it doesn't crash before a single game can be completed. Online Multiplayer is non-existent with this one too.

This is the first game I've played on Steam. I rarely play any PC or console games at all. This met my hopes and expectations. I don't regret the purchase AT ALL! I will have much fun playing this classic with my family and friends. I don't like the online multi-player world but I love playing against family and friends and with this game you can do just that. I'm looking forward to doing the same thing with the golf game in my wish list, hopefully without all that upgrading clubs, equipment, clothes and skill level crap and without having to play LAN-style on separate computers in the same house like with WGT or Tiger Woods. I'm looking forward to more classic and popular modern board game adaptations becoming available too. The only thing that was a bit disappointing with this game was having to play it in the 4:3 aspect ratio. It was enjoyable enough but I would love to have it fill the screen in an update (or if I'm missing something, I would love to have someone explain to me what I'm doing wrong). A big thank-you (and a nudge and a wink) to the developers. :)

Worst RIsk game ever. Had a version from ATARI I think for Win95/98, that makes this look like utter ♥♥♥♥. Gameplay is crap, visuals are crap, sounds are crap. This is the definition of crap. Also made the mistake of thinking (for some reason) that it was multiplayer and bought two copies. Stupid, stupid, Stupid.

Definitely wont buy anything else from "Sperasoft, Inc."

20 years later, and their version of RISK is garbage compared to Risk II (Microprose, or Atari), Way too expensive on Amazon now though, unfortunately.

No multiplayer and crappy AI means a poor experience.

Very little effort put into this game.
