2.0 out of 5 stars '95 computer version better January 27, 2008
By D. Ring
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I am the biggest Risk fan out there, and the original Risk version is my favorite computer game, which I play constantly. A few years ago, they released Risk II which ultimately lost all that was good about the original game. It seems they decided to start over, and came out with a new version of Risk I, which seems promising, but is also ultimately disappointing. I am not sure why they took such a big step back from the '95 release with this 'update'. But there are a few things that I really like about it:

POSITIVES:
-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.

NEGATIVES:

-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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Limited Challenge December 28, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
For folks that grew up on the basic game, this is a fun way to revisit the past. Unfortunately the computer opponents do not provide enough of a challenge to keep a person coming back. Overall, I prefer the 1996 release of the game with enhancements (multiple maps, terrain, and objectives) that offer variety and increasing challenges. I'm puzzled by the step back?

Risk This version of Risk will be fine for a person who has never played before and wants to learn the game. It will allow a beginner to win often. For persons who know how to play the game and are familiar with its basic strategy, this game will not be much fun. The AI is weak and leaves computer players wide open for easy conquest. AI players make too many playing errors i.e. not attacking a conquered continent aggressively or not attacking when their forces are built up enough. The previous versions played the game better.

This version of Risk is dumbed-down when compared to Risk and Risk II from the '90's, that is true. There's not much in the way of options.

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.

Been a Risk fan for a while. This game plays Risk correctly. Graphics are nice too. I was worried about an older game on Windows 7 OS, but it works seamlessly.
