I bought the game during the wintersale of 2015.
I used to have the old 2008 Risk which I played for many hours.
Now I picked this one up and I must say I am very stisfied with the product.

You get 2 types of gameplay:
there is the classic Risk which has mostly the same rules as the old one has except for some animations that have been added to the bottom while in battle.
And then you have got the campaign mode which has 5 chapters and are all preceded by a very cute animated cartoon, about a war which keeps escalating between generals, cats, AI and others Which made me smile each time.
I do believe they were sitting on a little goldmine there and could have added a longer campaign.

You can also start a custom game which unlocks more maps after each campaign chapter you have beaten.
The only problem that I have encountered is that sometimes while playing normal risk, the game refuses to invade a certain terratory and you must invade with a different region first before it responds. ( Maybe a fix if the developers read this)

Overall definitily a must have if you are a Risk fan.
You won't be disappointed.

Sits in Australia. Guards exits. Watches time fly by. Notices that someone already has 60 troops in front of Australia. 10/10

Out of all the all the versions of RISK I've played, RISK Factions is by far the most superior one. It has fun colorful animations, the gameplay is very smooth and easy to get the hang of. If you're not a fan of the animations, well that's cool because there is an original RISK game mode as well. If you can't decide which RISK game to get, well look no further!

Awesome game! There's the classic Risk mode and the upgraded Risk Factions mode, which is actually extremely fun. My one criticism is that the campaign is too short! I finished it and was left wanting more. I really hope there is an expansion made for this game, because it's good fun.
