-The game has an ongoing voice-over/commentary that sounds like Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard) and which adds a great deal of fun. It is the best new feature. Unfortunately, the commentary is very limited, so you repeatedly hear the same comments over and over and over and over again. In the next release, I hope they expand the dialogue library.
-The game lets you choose which generals you play against, and each general (allegedly) fights differently. Unfortunately, in practice, they don't. The computer AI in the '95 was DRAMATICALLY more intelligent than this version, even if I selected the most brilliant generals. In fact, I think it is impossible to lose a game in this version. the '95 version, on some maps, like North America, it was extremely challenging to ever win.
-The AI is really dumb and it is impossible to lose.
-They give you only one map you can play off of. The '95 version had 5 maps to choose from. Let's hope they come out with an expansion pack.
-You cannot view what card you were given at the end of your battle until the start of your next turn. The '95 version didn't have this restriction.
-You are forced to play with the ever-increasing point format to the cards.Read more ›
However, as a faithful version of the board game it is good enough. The graphics and presentation are quite nice. The real upshot is that it runs on Vista and runs without the CD which works well for my lap top. (Risk II does this as well, but it is a little more complicated to run it on Vista.)
If you are looking for a fun time-waster on a flight, pick this up. If you are playing Risk on a desktop PC, I'd say pick up the older, more robust versions.

The original hasbro version is so much better this one has few choices for customizing the game, for instance it only does increasing sets not fixed sets, you cant choose. Read morePublished on June 2, 2013 by robert lavigne
