关于这款游戏

这是一个独一无二的模拟引擎


在这款《地缘政治3》的游戏引擎中,这175个可供选择的国家的每一个都包含了600多组数据元素。它还能根据游戏中玩家的玩法而实时地计算出这些数据元素的变化。例如,包括了施政满意度、政治方面的因素。

此款游戏支持1000多种玩法。游戏中的玩家/国家元首是国家的领导核心,可以从各个方面来统治国家:财政预算、税收(有多达30种税收方式可供选择)、货币、经济(经济活动有130多种)、国际和国内事务、国防、社会等。

每个领域都有许多法律可供参考。法律必须经由国会投票表决后才可通过。例如,设立社会福利最低标准,修改退休年龄、秘密开发核武器、扶持汽车行业。

玩家也可在世界地图中建立新的游戏设施,地图也会发生相应地改变:核工厂、风力农场、军事基地、地下管道、高速列车线路、飞机场和许多其他设施。

玩家的每一步都带来影响。具有人工智能的游说集团、社会团体和主要的国内国际风云人物必要时会出面加以干涉。(接受新闻媒体采访、辞职、抗议、罢工、堵路。)

玩家在游戏中可以会见任何人物或在媒体面前公开致辞(游戏中对话时间可超过8小时)来阻止冲突的发生。

情报工作让玩家能拥有一个完备的间谍储备库和“特殊任务”运营支持。例如,他或她(自己承担风险)能揭发另一个政党的丑闻,瓦解恐怖主义的网络组织、破坏外国

玩家也是军队的首领。当军事冲突发生后,玩家可在地图上将他的或她的军队从实际军事基地中调遣出来。

国际性组织(包含多达50个组织)的作用非常重要。例如,为获得安全理事会授权而进行军事干预,玩家可在联合国对某个国家进行谴责。


游戏场景


游戏中大约有20多个场景情节,包括“美国的财政悬崖”、“以色列-伊朗局势升级”、“大米输出国组织”、“欧洲预算黄金法则”、“南美洲管道建设”、“非洲经济繁荣”、

多个综合选项

  • 网络多人游戏模式(*)
  • 开启多个国家模式,玩家可同时统治多个国家。
  • 游戏设置:恐怖活动、天灾概率、人民的反应、开战。
  • 玩家名次实时在线排行
  • 将玩家照片、标志和名字一体化,将生活带入游戏中。
  • 互动教程和游戏中可连续访问的帮助
  • 游戏的测验模式中包括了3000多个问题。玩家可通过测验模式轻松地了解地缘政治。

I'll try to keep this rather short...

The idea of this game is vast and quite exciting at first... yeah there's a but coming... BUT after spending over 50 hours trying to find ways around all the bugs, the complicated dynamics and gameplay, I'm comvinced there is no hope for this game. It's $50.00 and it wasn't worth $10 simply because of the constant bugs. I tried and tried but I'm done with this game. The devs haven't seemed to care or drop the price in light of all the issues, so I'm out. Stay away from this game if you value your money.

This is an excellent game with superb depth into geopolitics. I have yet to come across any bugs, so I guess they have been fixed in different patches.
While the game looks like it was from 2005, if you like the genre of politics, this will surely satisfy you.

I really enjoy this game, don't get me wrong. And i've put a lot of hours into it, because the concept of the game is absolutely amazing. However I cannot give this a positive rating at this time. The game is riddled with bugs, sometimes game breaking. It could be a bug causing your country to go bankrupt, or maybe it'll cause you to have excessive inflation, or causes a breakdown in the correlation between the decisions you make and the ingame economics.

Instead of fixing the game crippling bugs, the developers ignore all the issues and have created Geopolitical Simulator 4. Because they've done this instead of fixing their game (which should really be in beta release, not published as a completed game), It has caused this 'game' to not feel like a game. Instead it feels like I have been robbed of my money.

I feel like I gave this game a fighting chance by paying full price, hoping that by supporting the developers it might encourage them to fix the bugs. I was wrong. Save yourself the money and don't buy this broken game.

I'll change my review if the developers ever release a patch that fixes even half the issues of the game.

For a game about geopolitics, save for the horrible graphics, the unintuitive interface, the rubbish AI (but then again who really needs AI in geopol sim?), and a heap of other problem - this game comes together to form a coherent mess that is suprisingly enjoyable to play.

I've had a lot of fun selling overpriced paper to USA. The only things missing is the ability to set interest rates and print money. I recommend this game.

BUG实在是太多了。而且官方的汉化版错误太多。不仅很多中国的城市位置被标错了,而且存在大量的语法错误!甚至连语句的意思都是南辕北辙的。汉化版几乎全是漏洞和错误。很多设定更不合理,例如被赶下台的理由莫名其妙且毫无征兆。而且无法直观得了解我的政府到底有多少钱。。财政系统的BUG太多了。。在军事方面,操作繁琐,还是借鉴一下《钢铁雄心3》吧!

It's an okay game but this game is NOT worth the price!! This game should only be a few dollars or free. The graphics is bad the game is glitchy and the people who made the game isn't going to fix this game but instead going to make another one! If you want to spend your $80 spend it on something others then this game!

The concept is good. The gameplay can be enjoyable and interesting, and sometimes hilarious. However the reason I cannot recommend this game is simply because it is flooded with bugs and ambiguity. "Everyone is protesting your lax policy" - thats nice and all but wtf is a lax policy?

"-1% popularity: Scientific Discovery" - why am I losing popularity for discoverying something and publishing it after it made everyone happy? And why is it happening repeatedly for 1 week?

"£25Bn on Foreign Policy" - thats nice...how do I cut it? Where do I cut it? Can I even adjust it? The Foreign aid I give comes no where close so where is the rest cuz its going over budget by more than 15%


As for bugs, the game is riddled with them. Always has been. For instance, my AI general sends a tank to take a city, but my ally takes the city first. But my general REALLY wants that city so continues the attack. Boom. Instant war with my ally. UN hates me. EU hates me. My people hate me. I get diposed and start WW3. Thats just one really annoying bug which I have to reload to fix.

If Eversim had continued working on GPS3 and fixed bugs and actually responded to feedback, hell if there was a SINGLE update, I'd be able to recommend this game. But I don't recall any updates/bug fixes. Instead they released an "add-on" which allows you to mod the game. And an expansion which allows you to start in 2014. Then moved onto their next game, ignoring the player's woes, bugs and issues.

If you can accept the bugs, and get used to the ambiguity in the game, then I'd recommend it for aspiring politicians or people who just like to start world wars, or like long-lasting, complex micro-managing games (like me). Otherwise I cannot.

大家好,欢迎来到史上STEAM逼格最高的游戏里,STEAM上所有的游戏基本都是无限制的DRM,唯独这个游戏有特例,限制3台机器码。并且价格不低,唯一对于中国玩家友好的是,DLC中国玩家不需要购买,购买了反而是没有中文的,所以你可以节约大概20美金来跳其他的坑。
好吧,价格贵我们可以忍受,这个游戏是款模拟总统类的游戏,你可以在这个游戏里玩玩习大大也可以玩玩奥巴巴。你只能扮演一个总统,所有的命令都是你颁布并且通过以后交由下面的人去实施,你只需看实施后的剧情动画以及大战略地图的各种实时动态。
也有其他170多个国家随意选择,自由度很高,大到要介绍这个游戏的玩法可以写一篇作文了。所以我也懒得写,喜欢类似文明5策略类的朋友可以考虑这款游戏。不过我这款游戏不是属于战争游戏,不要想着玩中国去征服全世界,你是肯定实现不了。不过你可以尝试征服鬼子,这个可以实现的。
本游戏自带多人联机功能,但是你要找一个本地一起联机的基友还是很不容易的,要联机还是和网上的小伙伴约好吧。这个游戏不是回合制,联机效率不慢

优点:内容非常庞大。涉及到法律,政治,民生,军事,经济,科学,环境,反恐,外交,外贸等等方方面面都需要你去切实考虑,然后制定政策,交给你下面的人去实行。不是简单的堆砌数据,而是用动画剧情来展现一切模拟出来的效果,不会让你感觉纯粹的玩一堆数据,应该是目前没有任何一款模拟游戏会把如此全的内容添加到一款游戏里来进行模拟的。
缺点:想要流畅度就需要一个很好的CPU,否则你快进起来会比较卡;游戏画面一般,看来这个公司对于美工方面要求不高;游戏上手度非常难,要考虑的事足以让你死掉N个脑细胞,但是也是部分发烧友所喜欢的;机器码限制是非常恶心的一个差评。

PS:中国的玩家一定不要买DLC(本体是自带DLC的内容的!)否则会多花钱还没有中文语言,到时候要麻烦去申请退款,我就是受害者啊~~

既然这游戏是姐姐大人帮我买[包养]的..似乎怎样我都得写个评测了。
看见了很多批评,双DRm,3机器限制,Bug多[枪支税上调无限刷钱],军事系统各种奇葩bug,DLC炒鸡友好,永远不降价逼格特高特牛逼...
没错没错...
单是那渣一般的画面感觉完全不值...当我在宿舍的surface里打开这游戏时,我只能看着低配置的黑屏享受着那浑厚的背景音乐.感受着自己似乎拥有了至高无上的权利.[然而似乎这并没有什么卵用。]这游戏的问题多的显而易见.
然而这并不是我所希望去说的.
开始之前,我想先提出一个问题.
什么是我们对于未来的期许?
美好生活?工作顺利?学业进步?老来得子?[这啥]
纵然拥有再多的期许,总有那么些东西是无法被完成的。总有那么些畅想是如此的不切实际,以至于生活的残酷将它成功的抹杀殆尽.
然而总有那么些东西可以让我们如同在梦中一般体验一种不一样的人生,例如书本,例如游戏。就好比[模拟人生]一般.
这个游戏给人一个机会,让人能够得以一瞥作为执政的领导者的感受,如从阑珊中向虚幻中张望一般.纵然着再不真实,感受起来多么一般,这至少,带给了我一丝些许虚幻的满足感.
所有游戏的成败都可如此论述. 伟大并不一定需要杰出,它所需要的不过是打动人心.
这个游戏成功了.

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.

This is my review of the game after being first scared off and close to not trying it. I enjoy it alot.

This is a Marvellous game for those people who are interested in Geopolitics, aren't looking for a quick Command and Conquer-styled game and enjoy running a simulated nation from top-down. It is important to emphasise that this is more of a simulator than a game. People who enjoyed Superpower 2 or are interested in a geo-political simulator will enjoy this game, but the game has a steep learning curve, and having an education helps.

Overview

Masters of the World - Geopolitical Simulator 3 is a simulator first and foremost. Whilst the simulator can be a game of tactics, it is much more than that. In this game, knowledge of the world and how government's run will help you understand how this simulator works. In the simulator you can play as any country in the world and run its affairs. The game has the nations as of 2013 and 2014, and the governments that run them with comical mimicks of the real-life leaders. Once you enter the simulator, you will have to face that country's problems head-on.

The game has 5 major areas: Politics, Economy, Military, Diplomacy and Trade. Each part is interesting and has different challenges and positives. You really need to balance each of them as each strain is interlinked with the other.

Positives

There are heaps of positives in this game that make me enjoy it, but here are my favourite 3:

- Depth of the simulator. The developers really made this so you have to think about the simular from an educated perspective. The simulator has 5 major areas has alot of you to go through, lots of details and statistics. For example, in the Economy you have to manage taxation, debts, budgets, and trade in order to make a better economy. Each of these are in even more depth, from tax on alcohol to organising trade contracts with different countries for profit, and to the economy split into Industry, Services, Agriculture, etc so as to represent your country's production. This is replicated in the areas of Politics, Military and Trade, but not really in the diplomacy field. You change these statisics by the actions you take.

- Simulated world events. The news really gives you an overview of what is happening in the world. The simulator simulates the status of the world's economy, politics and wars and this is always interesting in my opinion. I find even protests within country's I control represent to me issues that the nation faces (welfare dependency, police numbers, etc). This is a very interesting dynamic to the game.

- Cause and effect. Everything has cause and effect. For example, raising taxes makes more money but affects your popularity, the purchase power of your people, unemployment and other factors. Going to war can allow you to colonise, annex or integrate a country, but costs heaps of money (transporting soldiers, or sailing navies in reality isn't cheap!) and relies on positive public opinion.

There is much more, but those are my favourite three.

Negatives

There is quite a few downsides to the game that need improvement. There has been alot of criticism for Double DRM in this game, but I never had any problems with it (as I can play it offline and no issues c/f Ubisoft games). Double DRM exists in heaps of games, where Steam protects the game from copying but the game producers also try to have it. This issue is a wide-ranging issue but I haven't had any issues with it. The other widely-criticised issue is only being allowed to install the game so many times. This isn't too much of an issue if you don't delete your games, and has been around for ages. If you have any problems, its been said that you just have to contact the company for remedy.

To be honest, much of the criticism of the game Re DRM and other hasn't been an issue at all for me. In terms of gameplay, here are the worst bits:

- Learning Curve.One of the hardest things for people in this game is the learning curve. My first 7 games were tragedies, I was either assassinated, kicked out of government or fled overseas because my people hated me. This, if you read the other reviews, is why others have then rated this game badly. Just because you might play a few games and fail doesn't mean its unplayable, it means you need to understand things better.

But this difficulty, while a reflection of the reality of making difficult policy decisions, is also something that may scare some people off who just want a quick game.

- Conflicts. Unlike other games, there are conflicts that erupt all the time across the globe. 90% of these conflicts are just skirmishes (North Korea bombing a South Korean island, city, etc) that doesn't erupt into a bigger war and stops at the skirmish. The other 10% is a major war, which results in either the colonisation/annexation/integration of another region, or a ceasefire. For example: I was in a big war besides USA, France, Mexico and Brazil v Venezuela. Venezuela blew up a US Nuclear Reactor on US islands in the Mediterranean. After much military manouvering and many failed US landings, 5 months later a ceasefire was signed.

This part of the game is 50/50. While it produces alot of fun to watch/be part of a war and brings a combat dynamic into the game most of the time, it can be quite tricky and doesn't really correctly simulate how often conflicts erupt.

- Broadcasts. The game could do without it, but it adds a comical feature to the game. Events allow your leader or others to give you briefings, tell you about events, United Nations speeches, etc. This is fun to listen to your advisors/other world leaders, but can be a bit repetative. You can turn this off though.

- UI. The Game's UI isn't very good. It is manageable, but because the game has alot of depth it can be difficult to easily switch from normal view to military view, to zoom in and to get the information you want on your screen quickly. It just takes a little more time and hence patience in my experience.

Conclusion

For a game made by indie developers, this is a great game. It is not made by a major developer, these guys have a small team but bring quite a big simulator that is overall enjoyable. Sure it isn't Europa Universalis 4, but it is a geo-politica simulator that does what in my opinion, is a good simulation. The geo-political simulator that is alot of fun,and very interesting It is especially enjoyable if you know your stuff (such as the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008, what made the Global Financial Crisis happen, what a tax actually is, etc etc). Definitely, coming from a university background, this game makes alot of sense and allows me to enjoy a global simulation where I can be any country. This game is more for the grand strategy gamer with some intellect, rather than the "where is my artillery and explosion" gamer.

I came to this game very skeptical, and was close not to buying it. I read the negative Steam reviews and thought, well, why should I try it if its -so- bad? I contacted the developers and told them that I'm uncertain about the game. I decided to buy it and haven't regretted it as someone who is interested in geo-political issues and likes grand strategy games. As one of the original purchasers of Superpower 2, this game reflects the fun I had in that game.

Furthermore, success in this game is in the eye of the beholder. One of my most successful games was playing as Australia, where I was able to make a budget surplus, and start to pay off my debt. With surplus I built stadiums, theatres, airports, and a larger army that I used to take over different Pacific islands and colonise them.

Overall, I would give this game 8/10. Contact me if you have any questions :)

It isn't the best game out there, but in a limited market for these types of games its good.
