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.

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!!

Not a a bad game in my mind, but not a good one either. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who doesn't have patience with op ai.

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

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.

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.

The game is extremly glitchy. It may play for 5 min nad then crash. There is no way to save and recover your game. Buggy and frustrating

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.
