Very limited game with no adaptation for various screen resolutions.

Fun... but unfortunately this is just a souped up flash 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.

If you just have an itch to play the classic game of risk but no one will play with you this game is for you. There is no online multiplayer but it does have local multiplayer. It's good for someone like me who doesn't really care about online play for a game like this. It also lets you play the game fast pace because you can quickly skip through the computers turns and then see what happened and make your move. No more waiting for that one pesky player that just wont go, and no worried about someone online going AFK for long periods of time. If this sounds like something you would desire from a game this is a good pick (I travel a lot for work and it is a nice game to play when I am sitting on a cramped air plane, I have even played with other passangers I meet sitting next to me). If this game sounds like you I would also recommend picking up the game of monopoly on here that is also on steam, it is a very similar setup as this game. If you just want online play then your going to be disappointed and I would recommend avoiding this game.

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.
