It is almost impossible to get a game online but that is exactly what it's like with the board game. You buy the game, set up the board and can't find anyone who wants to play it so in that respect they have nailed it. it is a perfect recreation of what it's like to own the board game. 5 Stars.

There is no one onlione 90% of the time. so be sure to have some friends get the game also if you want to do multiplayer, other than that, its a alright risk game.

It's simple and fun, but people sometimes drop out from game which sucks a lot. I wouldn't recommend this if you don't have friends to play with

This game is very fun for the regular classical risk, and also the factions. The games are very long but are enjoyable. It is worth the $10.

Playing against two mates in an exciting online battle on Limbo.
I'm about to nuke the hell out of those two scrublords.
Been over one hour into the game.
Game freezes.

Happened about ten times until now...

11/10 you can play as a zombie general.

I would definetly recommend this game if you are planning to play on HDTV with friends, interface is perfect for HD display and play with friends. I was also able to play it with gamepad, which was a little bit tricky at the beginning but when you find out which button is which and how to handle the user interface it's easy to play. There are two modes available, Fractions and classic risk, you can also turn off detailed war scenes and play it like classic risk with only dice roll. I didnt go further and try other features, I liked it so far.

Super addictive. I enjoy the Old School mode. Max players vs PC. The new mode is awkward and not fun for me.

Oh my, another RISK game. Well, dont get me wrong, its a good game overall. The multiplayer is dead, if you dont have anyone to play with then all you are going to do is finish the campaign and play 2-3 missions on Custom mode. Thats pretty much it, it doesn't have much going for it. The objectives are great and all, the animations are halirous and the cutscenes will give you a laugh or two, but the game doesn't have that original RISK feeling. If you are a fan of RISK and you have nothin' to do, sure, why not? I'd say you can finish the campaign in around 2-3 hours minimum, and the Custom mode is great. It will kill some hours and then you will probably never touch it again.

Meh 3/5, would bang.

The best Risk game I have played to date; 4th so far over the past 20 years. Nice and easy to play, though not too much flash or eye candy. If you disable all the clips and cut back on the movies, it becomes a nice quick, easy, fun to play RISK.

This game is fun and addictive, but nobody is playing online. Unfortunately the offline mode is very limited, so I would recommend that you get this game and then add loads of people from the forum, or encourage your existing friends to get the game too, that way the online experience will be better for all!!

The game is fun (it's Risk, not that hard to make fun) but the servers have some IMMENSE problems keeping a connection going. I was playing with my brother and twice in a row, once where he hosted, once where I hosted, we were forced to leave the game because it became unresponsive. Both times it happened mid command, leaving the one not hosting unable to do anything but exit.

That aside, playing against the AI is like playing against someone with a loaded dice. A mathematically impossible move (him defending with 1 against your 15 and winning) seems to be something it excels at.

The graphics are good and I think I'll take a deeper look into the campaign, but skirmishing agaist the AI can not be advised, and you risk losing a game due to it bugging out if you're playing online.

Maybe EA will release a "Be able to finish a match" DLC for 19.99$ in the future, but I doubt it. EA keeping to their standards I suppose.

I had this game on ps3. Just couldn't resist getting it again. The clasic game is still there but the new maps and charaters is what make this game so fun.
