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)

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Why would Hasbro put out a port that doesn't even include the original rules or options for the board game? No way to randomly be assigned territories, them place your armies one at a time as you wish. AI is the worst of any online Risk I've seen. Drisk for Android is better. All they do is take a territorry and leave 1 army, then swap back and forth amassing 60+ armies that they then do nothing with until their continent bonus gets broken.

I agree that $3.99 was $3 overpriced.

Ah yes, the good old classic game of Risk. A board game where the object is to dominate the globe. This game takes patience and strategy.

Note: trust no one. If you are playing with a friend and you supposedly make a "truce" to take out the player with the most power... You must stab him in the back and take him out when he doesn't notice and take his cards.

PS: This game does not have mutliplayer.
