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

The single player is terribly boring.


I hate my life.

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. :)

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.

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

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)

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.

Let's see... First, no multiplayer LAN/Steam capability(only local hotseat). Second, There are no extra gamemodes other than classic(no Capital Risk, no Same-Time Risk, no choice in 60%/80%/100% Domination, JUST CLASSIC.... ONLY CLASSIC). Third, the game just doesn't really articulate the battle sequence and will leave you wondering what just happened.

If you want to play Risk on your computer get Risk: Factions, this game is horribly incomplete. Alternatively, you can download Risk II on CNET but it is up to you to get a game to work with no support(just like this game I imagine).

Post Sctiptum: Same-Time Risk, best way to play in my opinion.

A complete waste of (little) money.
Ugly graphics, gameplay not even close to the original board game that we all love.
Terrible animations, boring sounds and musics.
A huge disappointment.

Has none of the charm of the original board game or other computer versions for that matter. If not for the Risk name on it I would swear it was a cheap knock off.

This simply feels cheap and lacks the charm the original Risk (in either pc or board-game) has. It's not worth money.
