レビュー

“Apparently somewhere between the genuine bona fide electrified six-car monorail, the prostitutes and the land mines, I lost the support of the electorate.”
PC Gamer

“I returned to Democracy 3 in an attempt to put right the wrongs of my previous administration. On my first visit, I broke Britain, crushing its culture and creating a country reminiscent of Clockwork Orange, filled with gangs and ultraviolence.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Positech has made, I believe, one of the fullest real-world governance simulation games ever conceived. It’s engaging, it’s self-aware, and, at times, it’s funnier than anyone might have expected”
Indie Statik

このゲームについて

Have you ever wanted to be president? or prime-minister? Convinced you could do a better job of running the country? Let's face it, you could hardly do a worse job than our current political leaders.

Crime, Unemployment, National Debt, Terrorism, Climate Change...Have you got the answers to the problems that face western industrialized nations? Here is your chance to find out...

An entire virtual country

Democracy 3 simulates the motivations, loyalties and desires of everyone in the country. A custom-designed neural network is used to model individual voters, each which varying memberships of voting groups, political parties and pressure groups. Each voters income is modeled, along with their levels of complacency and cynicism. This is the most sophisticated political strategy game ever created.

Unique user interface

Despite being vastly detailed under-the-hood, Democracy 3 has a unique user interface that makes visualizing the connections between laws, policies, voters and situations easy. A simple iconic-based view of your countries issues allows you to 'drill-down' through all the relationships between policies and voters to quickly analyze the impacts of your decisions. Your trade policy may affect GDP, which will affect unemployment, which will effect poverty, and thus crime, leading to a change in tourism, which affects GDP...

Complex simulated voters

Each individual voter is a mixture of a subset of the 21 different voter groups represented within the game. They might be a young, wealthy, liberal socialist commuter, or a retired conservative religious capitalist, for example. Not only this, but the extent to which they identify each of those groups is both variable, and can be affected by your policies in the long term. Convert your country to religion, or atheism, to capitalism, or socialism by careful and nuanced adjustment of your policies and laws over time. A 'focus group' feature lets you look at individual voters and see exactly how they came to a decision to vote for you (or not!).

政策を実行し支持を集めて、次期当選を目的としたシュミレーションゲーム。
プレイヤーが大統領(もしくは総理大臣)という設定だけど、鶴の一声で進化論教育を禁止できたり、飲酒年齢制限を撤廃できたりと、現実みたいに何も決まらない政治になる心配は全くない。

国家運営ゲーは他にもあるけど、このゲームで特筆すべきは、政策とその影響の関係の複雑さにあると思う。
例えばギャンブルの自由化政策を採用してみると、ギャンブル産業の活発化によって、新たな雇用による失業者の減少と、GDPの向上と、観光客の増加が本来は見込める。その一方で、ギャンブルは組織的犯罪集団の格好の資金調達源でもある。そのため強力な治安維持制度がないと、犯罪組織の膨張による治安の悪化により、逆に観光客には敬遠されるし、経済にも悪影響がでる。
よかれと思って実行した政策が、めぐりめぐってマイナスになることもあれば、一見大したことのない政策が広範に影響することもあり、選択とその結果のおもしろさが良く表れているゲームです。

ネットや電話を盗聴したり監視カメラを国中に配備してBig Brotherと呼ばれるもよし、資本主義者を国から追い払って地上の楽園を生みだすもよし、理想の国家を目指そう!(落選やAssassination!を死んだ目で見ながら)

あ、それと英文の量はそこそこありますが、基本的にオーソドックスな構文で書かれているので、ストアの英文が読めればたぶんあんまり困らないです。

ピクトグラムとBGMが
素晴らしいゲーム。
ボドゲ好きなら文句無しにおすすめ。

ルールは簡単。
白アイコンの政策に予算を振り分け
GDPを上げながら赤アイコンの
社会問題を解消しよう!

各政策の影響は緑矢印(上昇)と
赤矢印(下降)で表示されるので
とても分かりやすい。
社会問題を上昇させないように注意。

政策の繋がりも面白い。
観光客を増やすために環境整備に
予算を回して成功!観光客が増えて
環境が悪化したよ!とか。

安定してきたら
右上の電球アイコンから新しい政策を
建てよう!宇宙開発・合法カジノ・
合法売春・通信監視などなど
割と何でも出来るぞ!

飽きてきたらワークショップで
modを入れてみよう。
ボドゲの拡張パック的なノリで
面白いイベントや興味深い政策を
追加する事が出来る。

Democracy 3 is a turn-based strategy game stripped down to its barest elements. Think Civilization V but without the world map. Democracy eschews almost all visual flare in favor of numbers, charts, and graphs. As a government simulator, it makes sense that most of your time is spent pouring over facts and figures, even if that seems to fly in the face of video game logic. It also makes sense that you never actually see the people you are governing. They are problems to be solved: approval ratings, social malfunctions, tax revenue. You never see the drunk or the homeless but know they exist because they’re no good for the bottom line.Assessing your nation - France, Germany, U.S., Australia, or the UK - takes place on one of the most convoluted user interfaces I have ever seen. More than five dozen bubbles litter the screen, broken up into different colors and key sections such as Tax, Economy, Law & Order, and so on. White bubbles represent policies, blue bubbles provide data on the impact of those policies, and red bubbles are situations requiring your attention.Changing a policy requires political capital which is refreshed at the start of every turn. Making a big decision requires more capital, so you won’t be legalizing abortion and removing the cigarette tax in a single turn. Political capital is used to institute new policies in the same way. Adjusting those you start out with is interesting, adding more of your own is even more fun.Experimenting with policies creates a ripple effect on your constituency. More than twenty groups of voters dynamically react to your decisions, raising and lowering your approval rating. Members of your cabinet might also become disloyal and need to be replaced. Radicals might even try to kill you.As a government simulator, Democracy 3 does a remarkable job. Its presentation and wealth of data truly makes you feel like a world leader.For every moment of fun strategizing and eager anticipation there was an equal moment spent wishing the experience was more user friendly. I felt like a president, just as promised, but I was also reminded of why I would never want the job in the first place.Democracy 3 is a game for the politically-minded. It favors substance over flair. Some players might love the added analysis required for each turn but others will find it wearing out far sooner than it probably should. The denseness of Democracy 3’s presentation is its biggest barrier and it leaves one wondering why: Was this really the best way to deliver what, at its heart, is so similar to games like Civilization? For this iteration, it seems so. If you are willing to climb the hill and submerse yourself in numbers and graphs, this might be the game for you. If not, it is probably best avoided.

TL;DR 10/10, I was able to be Hitler and was assassinated by communists for being a good leader.

My party, The National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP) came to power when Germany needed her the most. Mass unemployment, degeneracy, lack of national unity, rampant violence, corporate corruption, and inequality threatened the fatherland more than ever before, and to make matters worse, the opposing parties (The Undergound movement of Judeo-Bolsheviks) promoted these plagues upon my nation and were bound to get worse as time progressed.

Something had to be done, for the sake for the German people and the German fatherland, a young, noble drifter stepped into the spotlight. An Austria-born WWI veteran, decorated with numerous medals for valor and bravery, animal lover, vegetarian, and artist, knew what he had to do, and led the NSDAP to glory.

With slow, firm steps, things finally started to look for the better for the German people. Prostitution was outlawed, ethnic and cultural protection was ensured through anti-immigrant laws, the unjust capitalist economic system was replaced with a nationalist restricted-market system, and eventually, the newfound leader established a dictatorship and removed of the barely functional, if functional at all, Democratic system.

Eventually, national values werre finally instilled; anything the people did, they did it has one for the betterment of the state, and thus the betterment of themselves. Man cared for man, brother for brother, and the most beautiful display of comradery to date was born.

However, the leader was eventually assassinated by Communists, and all that he had done was shrouded in a thick mist of lies and propoganda. The chance of Germany every recovering to what she had accomplished is slim, but those of us that remember, that know what really happened, will never forget.

(~Disclaimer: Don't be an edgy Marxist and call me a Neo-Nazi, this is a joke, treat it as such.)

3/10 Maybe buy if very cheap/on sale and super interested even after this review.

--- Negative ---

---- Gameplay / In general

Near 100% electorate approval rate, having eradicated religion, poverty, having a positive budget, while having a space program and various other luxuries, then that as a total beginner at this game and after a 2-hour session on 100% difficulty? Tells you something about the complexity behind.

It's not the least my intention to praise my capabilities, which I don't think are outstanding at all, but the game is just too simplistic at its core.

The various relationships between policies and their effects are very simple, you just point and click and adjust sliders. The in-depth information provided to you (statistics, various reports) are there for the optics only, after you know what to look out for you are not really spending any time working through something really difficult.

Of course it is nice if you have successfully banned religion without much opposition, or have an expensive space program, but not if you know, that the game has somewhat given you that as a gift, you haven't worked hard for it at all.

Things like banking and housing market crashes somewhat happen based on your policies, but they also do happen when everything is fine. It seems random and irrational. No poverty, full approval rate, overfinanced schools, bus systems, free meals, but you get class warfare?! ... Not that those things are of any challenge...

---- Mods

Mods are available, they make it a little bit more interesting, adding various new policies and maybe some cause-and-effect relations, but they are not drastically changing anything.

---- Interface

The interface looks nice, but other than showing cause and effect relations through arrows across the map, it isn't really practical. Looks > Gameplay in this case.

---- Countries

Worthless. Picking Germany you start with a two-party system (which we don't have) and for example having to make the decision in the evolution vs intelligent design question, which depending on how you answer can ♥♥♥♥ religious people off. We don't have that debate in Germany. The only difference probably are some starting values (like tax rates, et cetera), but it's not really tailored in-depth towards the different countries available.

--- Mixed ---

It's lack of complexity make it rather fast-paced, as you can click through your terms quite in a rush if you know what you are doing. The interface though is not very fast, and all is point and click.

Still: Probably the game serves well as a 2-hour enjoyment once a week or so, if you just play around trying out various things.

--- Conclusion ---

For a quick 2-hour session from time to time, it's okay, but to spent dozens of hours on this game, it's just too simplistic for that. Wanted something I could dive into, but there a more fun things than diving in shallow water.

By the way: Just look at the average playing time of people writing reviews, no matter if positive or negative! Why do you think that is... because there isn't much more to it, after you've played for a few hours, that's why.

What Democracy 3 did Right
-A real look in the brutality of politics
No-one is your friend in this game, and everybody is a whining ♥♥♥♥♥ yelling in your ear what you should do to make your nation perfect changing anything leads to more whining.

-Makes you think
you can't just do what you want, everything bill, every law, everything, will make someone, somewhere mad or alarmed. You have to make the smallest people mad while making the biggest groups/people happy.

-Mod Support
Mod support is always a good thing, and Democracy 3 uses the Steam Workshop.

What Democracy 3 did Wrong

-Everyone solves their problems by killing you
Made blacks made? Feminist feel ignored? Cut a guy off on your way to work? Well, they're going to kill you. Everyone for every reason will kill you unless you have more privacy killing security laws, but guess what? Killing people's privacy makes them want to kill you! It almost feels inescapable.

-Heavily biased
Racial profiling, Drones in the Sky 24/7, Capital punishment for even the smallest crimes, tank driving, machine gun wielding police officers, and nukes around every corner. These are the things that Ultra-Conservatives and Libertarians want in this game. That's wrong because the libertarian i know pretty much want anarchy.... anyways, in this game every bad thing is wanted by the Right and everything Good is wanted by the Left. You seeing their bias yet?

Who Democracy 3 is for
-People who can distance themselves from their political belief system

-People who enjoy simulator games

-Socialists

-Democrats

-Progressives


Final Thoughts
if you can go into this game and not get mad everytime you see your political side reacting in a way that they wouldn't, then you should be fine. As a Interracial Conservative, I was annoyed a little by the way they are shown in this game. But honestly i understand why they are like that in the game, because this is a political game and the creator is always going to put their own beliefs into this type of game, even if they don't mean too. Gameplay wise D3 is a tough strategy game and a fun one too.

It's a nice idea but rather simple and too static for my own taste. It can be rewarding the first two times you manage to build up a nice country and fix it's original problems, but after 2-3 hours of gameplay you already know what to do by hearth. The only reason I played this game for so long (almost 12 hours) was because I like simulators and dind't feel like doing something else and wanted to get the archievements c(:

Not recommended for the full price.

'Assassination' game mechanic is ridiculously broken. You basically have to govern a 'certain way' each time otherwise you get murdered.
I really wanted to like this game, but it's shallow and unrealistic, especially if you 'survive' the first term, then the game becomes to easy - an issue that plagued Democracy 2 as well.
Definitely don't pay full price.
