An okay Risk clone that suffers from even worse swinginess than the original. Games are drawn out by inability to stabilize defenses or to capitalize on victories. Even uncontested blitzes fail prematurely much too often. Makes for a harder game of Risk, but the frustrating play experience often leaves me more satisfied to be finished than I am with actually winning. Additional maps are fun. AI is decent for Risk. Accelerated pace is appreciated, especially the "Attack (all)" option.

I own every map that this game can offer. I like this game, but find it very frustrating at many a time. The AI is geared that I do not win. When i complete a conquest, I am rewarded more so with a blue circle than any other reward. Tonight, i played a battle where i had 19 points vs 7. I was wiped out. I had 1 point and they still had 7. Battles like these, I just say heck with it and start over. That is my experience with this game. That is why i can not truly say this is a good game.

An almost great re interpretation of the classic. However, the attack odds are utterly out of whack. You can lose 20 troops to 1. Game should implement the Conquer Club system which is perfectly balanced in terms of random outcomes. Also buying one map at a time is absurd vs paying for all to be unlocked.
