This is one of the most depressing games I've ever played, but it's definitely worth the buy! It's very fair and realistic, with more data than you will know what to do with. Use it correctly, save the world- but take something for granted and you've led on a nuclear war! Once you get past the tutorial, it only gets more interesting. Good luck!

I just saved Africa from a total collapse and now I feel great.

What more could I ask from a videogame?

Original, complex insight into the problems of global climate change. The gameplay is rather difficult, but it still manages to generate the addictive "just-one-more-turn" syndrome. Worth trying if you're interested in games tackling real-life issues.

Fate of the World is a pretty interesting simultator, pitting the player as dictator of the world, with a clear agenda to save it. It has a lot of interesting strategic choices and trade offs. Pretty cool. It must be noted though that its pretty much an environmentalists wet dream. Which sadly explains why its has completely skipped implementing the nuclear options which are means through which we can power humanitys future.

Thorium, a technology from the 1970's which lost out to uranium based nuclear designs, since it cannot produce weapons, is amazing beyond belief, which is why many countries, most notably China and India, are putting a lot of effort into it. Clean, cheap, no noticable waste and infinite amounts of fuel... Why oh why was that no included in the game? Well... It would make it trivially easy, and it doesnt fit the hippie agenda.

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"
