- Playing with sliders can be fun
- Game is decently difficult, but "winnable"
- Can be satisfying when you fix a country's economy The Bad:
- The private sector barely exists at all, meaning the only way to get anything done is with government subsidies
- A horrid assassination system results in you getting killed even when playing a moderate government
- The numbers and sliders can have you scratching your head at times. At one point, I had a population that consisted of 100% ethnic minorities after less than 5 years of moderate immigration policy
- The game gets stale FAST. Once you've fixed the country's economy, there is literally no point in continuing to play. The world doesn't change, and technological progress is nonexistent Summary:
If you're looking for a realistic government simulator, this probably isn't for you. The game consists of mostly fiddling with numbers and sliders with input-output mechanics, and you find yourself trying to play the numbers rather than simulate actual government policy. This game would maybe work as a five dollar title, but at this price, I would give it a pass.
