Reviews

“Anscheinend habe ich irgendwo zwischen der echten authentischen Elektrohängebahn mit sechs Wagen, den Prostituierten und den Landminen die Unterstützung der Wählerschaft verloren.”
PC Gamer

“Ich bin zu Democracy 3 zurückgekommen, weil ich versuchen wollte, die Fehler meiner früheren Regierung wiedergutzumachen. Bei meinem ersten Besuch habe ich Großbritannien völlig zerstört, seine Kultur ruiniert und ein Land geschaffen, das an Clockwork Orange erinnert, voller Gangs und massiver Gewalt.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Meines Erachtens hat Positech eines der umfassendsten Simulationsspiele für das Regieren in der echten Welt gemacht, das je konzipiert worden ist. Es nimmt einen gefangen, es ist selbstkritisch und manchmal ist es viel lustiger, als man es sich erwartet hätte.”
Indie Statik

Über dieses Spiel

Wolltest Du je Präsident sein? Oder Premierminister? Im Glauben, dass Du das Land besser regieren könntest? Ehrlich gesagt könntest Du es kaum schlechter machen als es unsere politische Führung derzeit tut.

Kriminalität, Arbeitslosigkeit, Staatsverschuldung, Terrorismus, Klimawandel…Hast Du die Lösung zu den Problemen, denen sich die westlichen Industrienationen gegenübersehen? Hier hast Du die Chance, es herauszufinden...

Ein ganzes virtuelles Land

Democracy 3 simuliert die Motivationen, Loyalitäten und Wünsche aller im Lande. Als Modell für die einzelnen Wähler wurde ein maßgeschneidertes neurales Netzwerk verwendet, jeweils mit verschiedenen Mitgliedschaften bei Wählergruppen, politischen Parteien und Lobbygruppen. Das Einkommen der jeweiligen Wähler wird vorgestellt, ebenso ihr Niveau an Selbstzufriedenheit und Zynismus. Es ist dies das ausgefeilteste politische Strategiespiel, das je geschaffen wurde.


Einzigartige Bedienoberfläche

Obwohl das Spiel „unter der Haube” extrem detailliert ist, hat Democracy 3 eine einzigartige Bedienoberfläche, die das Visualisieren der Verbindungen zwischen Recht, Politik, Wählern und Situationen einfach macht. Eine einfache ikonenbasierte Ansicht der Probleme Deines Landes ermöglicht es, dass Du alle Beziehungen zwischen politischen Strategien und Wählern nachfragen und die Auswirkungen Deiner Entscheidungen schnell analysieren kannst. So könnte Deine Handelspolitik z.B. das BIP beeinflussen, was sich wiederum auf die Arbeitslosigkeit und dann auf die Armut und Kriminalität auswirken wird, und das wiederum wird den Tourismus und letztlich wiederum das BIP beeinflussen…

Komplexe simulierte Wähler

Jeder einzelne Wähler ist die Mischung einer Untergruppe der 21 verschiedenen Wählergruppen, die im Spiel vertreten sind. Das kann z.B. ein junger, wohlhabender, liberaler sozialistischer Pendler oder ein pensionierter konservativer religiöser Kapitalist sein. Aber nicht nur das, sondern auch inwieweit sie eine jede dieser Gruppen identifizieren, ist unterschiedlich und kann auf lange Sicht von Deinen politischen Strategien beeinflusst werden. Du kannst Dein Land zu Religion oder Atheismus konvertieren, zum Kapitalismus oder Sozialismus, indem Du allmählich eine sorgfältige und nuancierte Angleichung Deiner Strategien und Gesetze vornimmst. Anhand eines „Fokusgruppen”-Features kannst Du Dir individuelle Wähler ansehen und genau erkennen, wie sie zu dem Schluss gekommen sind, für Dich zu wählen (oder auch nicht!).

In the beginning I felt a little confused by the complex mechanics of the game, but, after some hours of playing things got very interesting.
I really enjoyed playing the game.

Buuuut...after a few hours of playing, everytime that I can get passed a new election, after some quarter changes the games crash in the exact moment of the saving, corrupting the save file and not letting me continue my game.

I am really upset about this and would like a feedback from the developer staff.

First tried to create an Anarcho-Pacifist utopia, that didn't bode well for the Battenburg Group. Sniped outside of a schoolhouse I was opening. Then I said, alright screw that, my successor will be a Nationalist Big Brother, who suspends legal rights and taxes the hell out of the poor and weak. Turns out America really loves that. Until I ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off the Black Power Movement. Got a bullet in the skull exiting my mansion early in the morning.

This is a Great Game, strong focus on theory, but an outstanding fun though. What's better than establishing an anti-social capitalist country with a mental-stupid-religious society, praying to you like a god?

I guess a lot. So keep it in the game.

Democracy 3 is fun, but not for very long. I'm not absolutely sure of that because I've only played one game so far, on the standard difficulty, but I sense the same basic strategy I adopted should work for any country or situation and...

By my third mandate as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, I have eradicated crime, poverty, pollution, unemployment and racial tensions, reverted economical and technological non-competitivity into hyper-productivity and world-leading technological developments, reduced the public debt from 1 trillion Euros to 341 billion (and still dropping), one of my citizens got a nobel prize thanks to the quality of the educational system I implanted and my approval rate is 100% (yeah, really...).

Still, this game made me wonder two things:

1 - Is the UK really in such a dump as the game portrays it in it's initial scenario? As the game puts it, the UK's situation looks almost half as bad as my own country's...

2 - Why the hell am I playing games? I came to learn that, given my administrative skills and political profficiency, I should be ruling the USA, China or possibly even Earth itself.

In a question of whether or not you should buy this game, I think the answer depends on what your experience with Democracy is. If you're here because you got Democracy 2 five years ago and want to give it a shot again, I urge you to locate 2 again and stay home. If this would be a brand new type of game for you, well then we can keep talking. But, coming from Democracy 2, this game has some serious issues. Like, horror-scifi pull-off-your-friend's-skin-and-wear-it-as-a-hat-do-you-like-me-better-now level of disturbingly bad ideas for a game that styles itself as brand new for $25 with $15 of DLC.

The interface is the same. The way you interact with policies, ministers, dilemmas, the way you view your budget, opinion polling, focus groups – these are all the same and are styled the same. Maybe the color of the charts is sliiightly different and the background is sliiightly different, but it's the same.

Policies are the same. Like the exact ones. And, of course, you would expect some of them to reoccur. It would be pretty difficult for you to have a nationstate simulator game without involving things like "income tax" as a policy, so some of them can get a free pass. But when Democracy 2 has, let's say, sixty policies and every single one of them shows up here again with the same icon, description, and slider effects, that's a little cheap.

The dilemmas are the same. Turns are measured in quarters and every quarter or two there is a life threatening political crisis in your government that you have to rule on. What is cheap and disappointing is that these dilemmas are literally copy-pastes from Democracy 2. Again, I can understand talking about some of the same issues, but to have the exact same right-ups to the letter? Are you kidding me?

So basically, if I want something different and larger than Democracy 2, I have to pay the price of Democracy 2 and five dollars, plus one to three five dollar DLCs (one of which is completely game-breaking) and then maybe it will have some semblance of a different experience? Please.

That's okay, I'm new
An understandable way to deal with horror is to not know it's there at all. But even then, we have some familiar problems. So, here in Democracy 3, we take the roles of real nations in the world. Those nations come as the base game and then there's some more player-created ones that exist in the Steam Workshop. But if I wanted to take a country like the United Kingdom, basically, there WILL ONLY be the Conservative Party and Labour and it is impossible for anything else to exist at all. Your party will only ever have one opponent, it will be the same opponent every time, and you will never have to worry about one or more parties eroding your power because apparently if you win an election, you win 100% of your representative seats or at least always have a majority and will never need to compromise anything in your policies.


That is fundamentally not how UK politics works or Canada or Spain or hardly any of the options for playable countries. You will not always have a ruling party dictatorship and be able to fully implement whatever program you want or change in spending that you want if you simply ignore the other party and wait a while.

But it is how the US works.

So, if you are an angry conservative farmer from Kentucky which, based on the angry reviews on here, most players are, this game makes a great deal of sense to you regardless of what country you play as and only pisses you off because you were previously unaware how much the federal government spends on welfare. But if you expect something other than US politics like the novelty of working with coalitions and trying to use policies and ideas that no one has seen before or something that is unique to your nation, you're going to be sorely disappointed. There's just so many awesome things that could have been included in this game, but were not.

As far as the economy goes, there seems to be a bug with the global markets because I kept encountering games where the global economy was at 0% for two or three years at a time, rise back to 20% and then crashed again. You can get around this by having punitive fifteenth century Chinese tariffs and pretending nothing outside your nation exists.

Finally, taking a note from the angry farmer from Kentucky, this game IS slider simulator. All of the gameplay takes place on having policies switched on or off and then a slider to control how much of that policy you want active or how forcefully you want to implement it and to what cost. This affects one or more of 21 demographic groups which, depending on what percentage of the electorate they represent, determines your overall popularity. This means that there is a "sweet spot" for maximizing your economy and/or your approval and, while there are different start conditions you can have, like how religious your country is or what your starting crises are, ultimately all playable countries essentially have the same sweet spot combinations, and I'll be the first one to tell you that the same policy doesn't work for everyone everywhere.

Now that I have it, I will probably play it again every once in a while, but a game like this could have done a lot more and been a lot more fulfilling, so I can't recommend it, especially at its cost.

7/10. While enjoyable there are several big drawbacks:

- The game has a big bias toward some things. Apparently in Liberal-Capitalist country no-one minds 50% flat taxes, heavy regulation etc.
- Many events repeat themselves and seems to be one-off
- The cabinet supporting some groups makes no sense. One minister is angry about not caring about his core group even though I have 100% support and his group has 0 members.
- One way of another you play as US. There are 2 parties and no coalitions. Evolution vs creationism is apparently an issue and England and France teaches both at the start.
- People are angry and have opinion about you based on what is rather then was you are doing. So you can start with 0% approval rating.
- Social engeneering is way too easy. It seems to be rather impossible for a country to get 0 people in some groups just in a few years.

I'm on edge but given non-discounted price I'd expect much better.

At first, I was hestating to try this game due to its super simple interface. Just a few icons and text.
(Unike Game Dev Tycon, which provide a basic graphics: your office and etc)

After few minuts trying out, I was surprised by the content contained in this game. Various policies, different groups, natural disaster, monarchy and so on. You can do a bunch of things to build the country in your own way. And at the same time, choosing different countries will also give you various scenerio. (in which i consider USA is the easist country, since it have the economic power).

After 8 hours or so, it was becoming bored to me, because there are just these policies (or maybe it's because I changed the difficulty to 40%). Then i found there are more things provided by the community. You can add more policies, countries and balance mods into this game.

However, there is a limit of policies and coutries available to be selected. And the gameplay is kinda one-dimensional. Overal i still recommand this game , despite you might be bored by these things after 20 hours.

This game is far more fun than it really should be.
I mean, the actual mechanics are pretty simple, you get some action point type things every turn and you can use them to adjust sliders for existing polices, scrap existing policies or pick nerw policies from a list.
But then there are all the different interest groups to consider - going all socialist? Then the capitalists will try to assassinate you, or at least, a cabinet minister might resign
Lose an election and it's game over, you only need more votes than the other party to win rather than over 50%, so you can make voter apathy and low turnout work in your favour.
It's a two party winner takes all system, no coalitions or minor parties and that is my only criticism of this game - it works well as a USA simulator but less so as a UK or Germany simulator.
It's a simple concept, but the UI is well done and the whole cause and effect system is pretty easy to figure out - invest in science and your GDP will go up, but their will be a rise in pollution and angry environmentalists may start plotting/voting against you.
It has workshop support and there are some awesome creations available.
You don't have to commit to a long session, one turn takes a few minutes, perhaps less if you're following a long turn plan and you can save and quit the game at any point.
Basically, it's really well thought out and a good way to spend a few hours of your life, plus there are difficulty sliders for different levels of player experience and/or drunkenness.
