So in this game you try to save the world from Climate Change via a variety of methods with questionable effectiveness. To be honest, this game is rather difficult and not easy to pick up because alot of the terminology and proposed schemes for fixing Climate Change will likely be unknown to alot of people. There is some in-game information, but that still won't prevent this game from often being frustrating. Also it has bugs, with some of the achievements simply being broken with almost no chance of them ever being fixed since the devs for this game are long gone.

It's an informative little game that is often frustrating due to its difficulty and lack of adequate information. Another case where a simple "yes" or "no" just is not enough to describe my overall views on this game. Ultimately... I'm going to have to say no. It's interesting and a rare game dealing with real-world issues, but it's problems are just too annoying for me to recommend. :(

I really love this game. It's hard, it's confusing -- but it all works, and slowly, as you keep trashing the world again and again, you start to understand how the pieces all

I've only recently discoverd this marvelous unofficial patch. It addresses nearly all of the issues I have with the game in spite of loving it.

It is exactly what it seems to be. You guide humanity to it's brighter future through the global warming, fossil fuel depletion and population rise. With all of what makes a good global strategy/simulation: underlying mathematical models, realistic region balance, tons of available data (hidden by a click-fest UI, but at least data is meaningful and easy to comprehend). Technologies, nukes and space missions supplied.

IMPORTANT: get the Unofficial Patch, only then the game becomes what it was supposed to be. From other reviews you can get the impression that the game is abandoned, biased and half-broken. Yes, it is. Unofficial patch really patches the game for better.

Dette spil er lidt svært at komme i gang med. Men når man har lært spillet, og dets koncept, kan det fange en i flere timer. "Fate of the World" er underholdende, og kræver både tænkning, strategisk snilde, og, ikke mindst, at tænke langsigtet. Det kan sagtens gå rigtig godt i starten, og man tror, at man kan køre den sikkert hjem. Men så kan verden måske lige pludselig løbe tør for olie, og du taber i sidste øjeblik. Så derfor, tænk langsigtet!

Fate of the World is a really deep (and dark) Simulation of our upcoming years. Especially with all the available DLC it has lots and lots of content to keep you busy for a long while and make sure you'll get money's worth. Like all simulations and simulation games it is obviously not a complete and perfect replica of the real world. Of all the Simulation-games I've played throughout my life it is one of the deppest and most realistic simulations though.

You should definitely not play this game if you're afraid to start over again many times until you reach one of the desired endings. There is a reason that the 7th word in the description is "dramatic". You'll often run into bad ends or simply won't reach the neccessary mission goals in time. A great idea can backfire and make you think twice about adopting it the next time around.

The game presents choices for every region in "cards". This makes it look like a card-game to some people but it really isn't. I think the game desingers just tried to find a name to summarize "Policies", "Research Programs", "Military Actions", etc. and then they though "Hey, those things are presented on stuff that looks like cards." So they went with cards. Don't be turned away becaues you don't like card-games. FotW is not a card game and it might just aswell be called "decisions"; There's no deck, no drawing of cards, etc, etc.

Play this game if:
-You like mental challenges
-You're not afraid to see our Earth go to hell (because of your decisions)
-You think Trial-and-Error can be fun

Don't play this game if:
-You hate starting over
-You hate going through menus and just want to "play play play"
