Got this for my best friend for Christmas. We both love Mass Effect and Risk, and I found this online. He was very eager to play it for weeks, which means he must have really loved the gift. He never acted that way with my past Christmas gifts....

Anyway, if you love Mass Effect (and Risk), you'll love this combo board game. It's got like three different game types (we played the main one that incorporates the Reapers vs. Alliance). LOTS of rules.. no joke. It got confusing a lot of the time. However, once you get the hang of it (like regular Risk), you'll probably have great fun.

It seemed a little unfair for most of the game (my friend and I played the Reapers against his mom and sister [Alliance]). For example, the Alliance seems greatly outnumbered (like the video game) and vastly outmatched (also like the video game). Maybe we played it wrong, because we absolutely demolished his mom and sister, capturing literally every single one of their countries (or should I say galaxies? Solar systems? Sectors? Whatever, you know what I mean).

Regardless, the game was fun. And if you know Risk, you know how long it can last. Our game, though, only lasted a few hours before we conquered the entire galaxy... A good game length (or maybe it seemed short because we got a little drunk while playing).

3 games in 1, including a classic risk, a Mass Effect game, and also a card game. All are very playable though it is hard to learn the ME version at first. Extremely good at teamplay on the Alliance and Reapers. It's also a pleasing idea to include a loner faction (Cerberus). The game goals make it a lot more strategic for each faction especially if you integrate the card game. Interesting rules and ways to build and manage an army, the card swith special events are well done. I love the quality of the items in the game and how different it is from a basic risk. The only thing I dislike is the fact that the game should include 9-9 fighter ships for each player (meaning both Alliance armies should have 9) but has instead only 9-9 for each faction (meaning the Alliance team has only 9 whereas Cerberus has the same number as a loner). But beside that it's fun and makes you learn a lot. I'm happy to own this game.

I got this game for Christmas from my family and my friends and I immediately started playing it and it absolutely insanely fun. At first it was really complicated trying to get it figured out when playing the advanced version but once we got it figured out and started playing it was easy to play. It also seemed like the different teams would be really un-balanced but after playing it there is a level playing field so you can play as any faction and still enjoy it. Worth the money.

i bought it for my cousin for Christmas and we have all been playing it three to four times a week. Can get a little competitive(like all other risk games) but the cards and ships add new strategies and tactics to the game. Definitely a good buy.

Was really hoping for larger map (more worlds and attack pattern options) not to mention WHY NO ASARI? They were one of the major factors in the game, but completely neglected. Same with the Salarians.

I think adding more game pieces, and more worlds would spice this risk edition right up to AWESOME.

Sincerely,
Sean

Risk is one of those classic military strategy games that has long stood the test of time with me. I used to play the board game in junior high and high school quite frequently and I even picked up and reviewed Risk: Factions for the Xbox 360 when it came out some time ago. So when my oldest was asking me about Risk (she had seen a Doctor Who version of the game that caught her eye), I knew I was overdue in teaching her and my son how to play the game. What better way to do so than find a themed one that I was really interested in? In comes Risk: Mass Effect.

Mass Effect stands as probably my favorite gaming series last generation. I even loved the third game in the series, ending and all. My son spent plenty of time on the weekends playing the online mode with me. Now, if this was just a Mass Effect themed version of Risk, I could comment on the parts and call it good. I plan to do that, but this version of the game also comes with a couple of extra modes of play.

First and foremost, we have the game of Risk (here referred to as Basic Training). It is essentially the same game from my youth, just with planets and clustered regions connected by mas relays. For those unfamiliar with the game, you can have three to five players take turns setting pieces down one at a time until all of the planets are claimed. Then you start to reinforce those planets with your remaining pieces. Each turn is comprised of several steps. You start by adding reinforcements (from a combination of planets owned divided by three, plus bonuses for any regions you have full control of and then trading in cards towards ships). You then choose to invade other planets.
