"Terrible game: it cheats!"

May 18, 2010  |  By ui30

 |  Version: Empire XP 3.0

Pros

None I can find... it's complete, 100% crap!

Cons

It's a cheat. Attacking 1 country (last to take on a continent), 15 to 4 or so, the computer nearly always wins. Worse (try yourself): if you save the game before attacking and you lose, just reload the saved game and you will lose again! And again..

Summary

I hate this game. It's complete nonsense the way the computer plays against 1 person. It's giving the PC <colour> players all chances in the world to build and ocupy continents. It doesn't do anything about that. But as soon as a human player ocupies a continent, all PC <colour> players attack the same continent.
The computer also seems to be very lucky in drawing cards. I tried / tested this buy playing single turns over and over again by saving/loading a game and the computer keeps being lucky in a way that seems impossible to me.

Removed it and will never play this.

"Not consistent."

February 20, 2005  |  By WhiteWolf

 |  Version: Empire XP 3.0

Pros

Nice map and easy to follow action.

Cons

The rules clearly state that I could either place armies or attack, I couldn't do both in one move, yet when I played against the compter the pc players placed armies and attacked all in one move. I don't like that.

"Really good simple game"

January 22, 2005

 |  Version: Empire XP 3.0

Summary

It's a good game but without all the graphics. After awhile the computer gets predictable. But it is worth a download if you get bored at work.

"Fun game!!"

December 07, 2004

 |  Version: Empire XP 3.0

Summary

Brings back those summer days of playing RISK for hours on end. Bug free and intuitive gui.
It would be cool if there was more randomness in the computer strategy to simulate irrational human players.

"Great game! Can be played quickly."

September 25, 2004

 |  Version: Empire XP 3.0

Summary

The game falls into patterns that you can learn rather quickly. If you change your pattern, the game reacts and it can remain challenging.
