Regretting my decision to buy this.

Gameplay concepts are interesting, but the tutorial does next to nothing to teach you how to play the game. Nothing is explained past a couple of examples of how to introduce a piece of legislation into the parliament and how to order a military operation against a terrorist cell. Budgetary information is poorly presented, making it cryptically difficult to know what measures are affecting the bottom line and by how much. The UI is attrocious.

After a couple of hours poking around, I feel like I've made no progress whatsoever. I have no idea what to do, what I'm doing or what in the world is affecting what. It's a complete mess.

Although I have a degree of interest in politics and world affairs, I'm completely lost. I find that without a sufficiently solid understanding of economics, the player is going to miss out on a whole chunk of this games appeal.

Unless you're a student of economics and/politics, and can put up with a clunky interface, and occasional buggy elements that don't make much sense, steer clear of this one.

Despite all the negative reviews online, i decided to give this a try as it's exactly the kind of subject matter i've been wanting to explore in a video game. This game is a mixed bag. Not as bad as some are saying.

I expected a total mess of clutter and illogical AI. To my pleasure, the game is neither impossible to learn nor enjoy. There's actually quite a comprehensive and well thought-out simulation of running a modern state lurking under the poor graphics, cheap UI, uneven difficulty and mountains of stats. You'll certainly be kept busy with tons of decisions to make about laws, budgeting, trade, diplomacy etc.

I've seen reviews comparing this unfavourably to games like Superpower 2 and Supreme Ruler. I disagree - this game is definitely superior to either of those.

If the price were lower, i'd recommend it strongly to anyone interested in the subject matter. As it is, i'd say buy it only if you're really curious and have some cash to spare.

This game has its perks and is mildly entertaining but overall, it is very annoying. You rarely know what's actually going on. Your advisors are useless and you'll notice people rioting/demonstrating and it doesn't tell you why. There also seem to be some bugs such as advisors telling me the stock market crashed and the graphs show it actually increasing. Budget forecasts don't update sometimes even though I know it has changed. This game could have been great. Tried Masters of the World and it's hardly any better. Don't waste the money.

Worst Strategy game I have played in a long time. Sure its got plenty of potential but alas the developers are looking after version 3 of this game and other than adding a mod tool ( £9.99 ), looks like its abandonware. The start of each game is very playable but as you move deeper into the game you will notice more then a few bugs. I love the bug that stops you from building anything.....................

i was a worried this game would be a waste of 20$, thankfuly it was not a waste,there are so many mechanics at work here, for example i was just curious what would happen if i mobolized my troops along the border of another country and i was rather impressed with what happend, i have not seen anything like this in a game, what happend was as soon as i got my troops there the country that i had my troops next to said they were worried that i was going to do something to them, and as soon as they sent that, they ordered their troops next to my border to have a quick response to my invasion force. and this was the A.I. so yeah i was rather impressed. i do reconmend this game to people who enjoyed shadow president or other detailed games in the geo political sim genre.
