Om dette spillet

Discover the industry standard for geopolitical simulation of today’s world!
In Masters of the World, the third incarnation of Geopolitical Simulator, play as the head of state of one or more countries and expand your influence across the globe.

A totally unique simulation engine

The game engine, Geopolitical Simulator 3, includes over 600 data elements for each of the 175 playable countries and calculates their changes in real time throughout the game based on players’ actions. Some examples include popularity ratings, political relations, and economic exchanges between countries. Various organizations, including NATO, use the technologies in the Masters of the World simulator for education and training.

Over one thousand playable actions.At the country’s helm, the player/head of state can act in many areas: budget, taxation (nearly thirty types of taxes), currency, economy (over 130 economic activities), foreign and domestic affairs, defense, society, labor, health, social security, education, environment, transportation, culture, and more.

For each of these areas, numerous laws can be proposed and must be voted on by the Parliament in order to pass. For example: setting social welfare benefit minimums, changing the retirement age, developing atomic weapons in secret, subsidizing the auto industry, hiring teachers, defining the powers of unions, setting speed limits on roads, regulating prostitution, creating an international film festival, etc.

The player can also construct elements on the world map, which will change accordingly: nuclear plants, wind farms, military bases, pipelines, high-speed train lines, airports, and many more.

Every action has its consequences. Lobbies, social groups, and leading national and international figures will intervene if their artificial intelligence finds it necessary to do so (interviews with the press, resignations, protests, strikes, roadblocks, wars...).

To prevent tension, the player can meet with any figure, or address the media (over 8 hours of dialog in the game).

Thanks to its intelligence services, the player also has an entire arsenal of spies and “special” ops. For example, he or she can - at his or her own risk - reveal scandals about another political party, dismantle terrorist networks, sabotage a foreign infrastructure, have an opponent assassinated, etc.

As the head of the military, the player can move all of his or her units around the map from their actual bases during military conflicts.

International organizations (over 50 organizations included) play an important role. At the UN, for example, the player can denounce a nation in order to obtain the Security Council’s authorization for a military intervention. The player can also create his or her own organization.Lastly, in order to stay in power, he or she must actively campaign to make sure he or she is elected.

Playable scenarios

Twenty or so scenarios are included in the game, such as “American Fiscal Cliff,” “Israel-Iran Escalation,” “Organization of Rice Exporting Countries,” “European Budgetary Golden Rule,” “Building South American Pipelines,” “African Economic Boom,” “Third World War,” “Triple A,” and “Famine in Southern Sudan.”.

Multiple integrated options

  • Network multiplayer mode
  • Multi country mode to play several countries at the same time
  • Game settings: terrorist activities, natural disaster probabilities, reactivity of the people, war triggering
  • Real-time online player ranking
  • Integration of your own photos, logos, and names to make the game even more realistic
  • Interactive tutorial and constantly accessible help during the game
  • Have fun learning geopolitics with the QUIZ mode, which has over 3000 questions
  • Text and dialog 100% in English


Note about the DRM: it uses an automatic and seamless activation at the first launch, then it can be played off-line if needed. It allows unlimited activations on three computers at the same time, plus if needed to migrate for free to other computers. So you'll never have to pay twice for the same licence of the game. The system allows future and backward compatibility with game add-ons plus upcoming upgrades to sequels of the game and access to our newsletters subscription. This also offers possibility to players having bought previously on other sites to migrate on steam and keep their add-ons.

The game is brilliant in theory, however, in practise, they got it horribly wrong.
The UI is laggy and buggy, the "modding" extension doesn't work properly, when you have modded a game, and try and play it, half of the things you have changed mess up or just don't change.
The game is pretty boring after playing it 4/5 times.

I would only recomend buying this game to someone who would be willing to take it apart and rebuilding it to make it's functionality better.

It's a disgrace for Steam to sell this game. It's buggy, broken, and overpriced.

At first, Masters of the World looks like a deep, engaging and thrilling simulator of worldwide politics. If you made the same mistake that I did by purchasing the $70 bundle with the game, updated content, and the modding tool, you'd better hurry and refund that. If you really want to see what this game has to offer then you should just buy the base game.

Unfortunately, the problems with MotW appear immediately. Right off the bat, the tutorial was unable to figure out that I had successfully changed some spending priorities as it had instructed me to, preventing me from progressing further. Armed only with the knowledge of how to navigate the map and modify the budget, I tried to start a new game. It was extremely difficult selecting a leader that wasn't of the same party as the current leader, turning the start-up process into a mess as I accidentally changed unrelated settings attempting to figure out how to change the leader. I eventually figured it out - though I can't even remember how I did - and entered the game.

Immediately, the game became campy and even amusing. To communicate to the player even basic messages, an ugly and poorly-rendered person takes over your screen to talk to you about how well you're doing. The voice acting was so robotic and unnatural, the first 7 hours I played I was certain it was just a text-to-speech software. These messages quickly become repetitive: whenever there is a terrorist cell in a foreign country, someone will come on the screen and deliver a useless, rambling explanation of the "Brown model" without giving you any real information (they'll mention percentages and numbers that sound important, but turn out to be repetitive filler that doesn't change situation to situation). Afterwords the game will give you a static text box telling you the real information: where the cell is, what it does and how to contact them. You can skip these messages (and thankfully by doing so you're not actually missing anything), but the fact that Eversim put so much effort into something so unnecessary - and in fact something that hinders the gameplay experience - shows where their priorities are.

The rest of the game's graphics do not fare well, either. The game has extreme and severe lag somehow, even when countries are basically trees, lakes, and geometrically simple cities that consist of about a dozen buildings. As mentioned earlier, the character models look horrendous, but the developers seem to enjoy showing off. The interface is a problem (which is not uncommon for an Eversim game), with the developers trying to make fancy-looking infographics hidden behind dozens of menus and tabs.

If these problems weren't major enough, the game is buggy, crashes very often, and Eversim has completely given up on it. Eversim has a history of spending about 6 months on a political game, updating it rarely for a 6-month period, and then disappearing to work on a sequel. Their sequel to this game is coming out soon (the release date has already passed with no announcement) and judging by the trailers, it preserves the terrible graphics and confusing interface. If Eversim settled on a game, kept updating it, used a reasonable price, and actually made a working tutorial, they wouldn't have a 42% positive score on Steam.

This game is not for Waging Wars, and Destroying countries, its about doing whats best for your country and your people and keeping them happy.

I dislike the fact if you lose your done and thats all, if you have the modding tool, there is a way to disable it, create a mod, Changing nothing, go to the mod settings and click "Disable the Option of Losing" That way you can keep playing, even if the army overthrows you.
Strongly recommend God and Spy and modding tool to ensure more freedom.

Pros:
-Great Simple interface
-Great for People into Politics
-Shows you a minor portion of what its like a rule a country
-People react accordingly to your changes.
-The UN Security Council
-Meetings and Trade Requests

Cons:
-Horrible on Frames at all times, I get 5-10 FPS constantly and I have a good computer.
-If you lose you lose, unless modded
-Hard for Beginners
-China Rejects all UN Permanant Security Council requests (Can be solved with God and Spy)
-Enemy AI, and Friendly AI always bombs Civilan targets.

Overall I think this game is alright, not the best buts it great overall

I wouldn't reccomend buying this game even with discount.
I don't really care that it is overpriced or have some drawbacks with minor countires as the concept is pretty neat - it is so bugged and eventually you wiill encouter crashes. You might think the game runs smoothly while in peace - maybe, but when I tried to choose reactive rocket launchers, it constantly crashed. I can't envade or defend - the game is ruined. Pretty sure there are much more bugs.

Also, I like achievemnts, but this game is totally lacking

If you are interested to try - download it on torrents, the devs didn't earn your support

This game is pretty much Democracy 3, but on a level of depth and complexity that old Paradox games don't even touch this. That is fine but this game suffers from a few major problems, one being the tutorial teaches you pretty much nothing, also this game is pron to crashing and it loves to have your leadkilled or have a military coup, and the problem with that isn't so much that it happens but because it dosn't tell you why. This game has so much potential that I got sucked into it but between the glitches and me having no idea what half the buttons due or how to even play the game I cannot recomend this to anyone. In all don't buy, but try to get the next game to be actualy proper and really good because this franchise needs to exist.

Don't buy the game, if you do, please don't get coaxed into buying its 'expantions' they do nothing to improve the game's obvious lack of development quality. Truly is a shame, it had so much potential, but bugs are ever present and there is rarely an update to fix it. It is an unfinished game, a cash grab, theft...

There's a double DRM, that limit your activation to only two graphic card, CPU, HDD, SSD, Windows change...
So basicly, you change a part or start the game with an HDD not connected but it was before, you lose an activation.

Say goodbye to your game if the company go bankrupt.

Double DRM on Steam help no way the devs other than killing the sale.

Avoid the game, say NO to double DRMs.

Considering this game was released March 2013 I dont see how they can justify the price of £39.99, despite the updates this game has recived (even though they were quite spaced out), there are still many flaws and odd bugs that will crop up during gameplay.

If your into political / management games then its quite fun but dont even think about attacking anyone as your country will automatically hate you and you will lose the game.

The game still feels unpolished and slow especially when having played a country for 3+ years and as I said odd bugs will creep up like France having 99% of the worlds GDP?

This game does have it charms, I like playing as Equatorial New Guinea and trying to claim Africa but the games forces me to stop and start from scratch, It is fun when its working properly but those moments come rarely.

Wait for this to come cheaper, 75% off before you buy then try it. Otherwise just give it a miss, which is a real shame as I love these kinds of games. I got my fingers crossed for Supreme Ruler 1936 to be nice and polished for release this spring.

Game concept is great. Game execution not great. Anything more than $5-10 Game price: Not worth it. Now that I won it, I'll keep playing it, but it is really not as polished as it should be. I bought the add-ons. Examples: South Korea has a Vietnamese city called Saigon. US outstanding Debt is about half that of Germany. In reality US is about 17 trillion to Germany's 5-600 billion. The AI for war/conflicts is horrendously bad. Never leave the direction fo your troops to your general. Even when a country no longer exists your AI thinks the conflict is continuing. If a NATO member is attacked (i.e. Russian invasion of Poland), NATO doesn't mobilize. The number of interactions capable with leaders/advisors is extremely limited. Again, this is a great concept for a game. If it was polished and had more features I would rate it 4.5 out of 5 or higher. As it is right now it is like a 1.5 out of 5. The concept keeps you engaged, the gameplay doesn't. STRONGLY suggest you don't buy.

The game is awesome, probably the best strategy game i've ever played.
One of the probles on the game are the bugs, for exemple: When the high speed train arrives in 46,000 km, when i'm going to cunstruct more, the game crashes, or when the game arrives in 23:00 p.m the game crashes too.
I lost 2 in 2023 and 2025.
Another problem is the lack of updates, we are already in June and there isn't any update, to fix any bug that is since 2013.
I woud recommend the game to my friends if doesn't had so many bugs that spoils the game.

This game has several game breaking bugs that can just stop you from playing a game, forcing you to start again. For example I was kicked out of my country for having a defecit, when i was still shown as having surplus, my income was more than my expense, yet I was kicked out. Several other people have similar problems. The devs seem not to care about their fanbase at all.

Price is too high for the quality of the game, and the price was not dropped in time like most other games.

If you have 50 dollars to throw around, I would buy this game, as it is still the best domestic and internatiol political simulator out there, but dont expect to get too much out of it.
