Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

DEMOCRACY thrusts you into the hot-seat as the Prime Minister (or President) of the world's most powerful countries. The country is run as a simple democracy where you need to secure over 50% of the vote in each election in order to remain in power

We all think we can do better....here's your chance to prove it with Democracy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Take over the world 23 Feb 2008
By huskies
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Older gamers may remember a great ZX Spectrum game in the 80s: "Great Britain Ltd" Democracy is the 1st game I've seen pick up that concept for the vista era.

What I liked about the game was being able to be leader of many different countries - policies play out differently with the US electorate if you are president, and you will have to contend with policy obstruction if you lose either house in the midterms, and the differing start points of UK, Australian and US policies is good.

The game is very addictive - each time I've played it I've found 4 hours has gone by very quickly.

The interplay of policies affecting different interest groups and economic dynamics is great e.g. childcare provision plays well with parents, not so well with capitalists, but improves productivity which assists your tax income through rising GDP.

If the game has a drawback it is overly anchored to a single main screen so not too visually exciting, and it can seem that progress after a few terms is limited once you've implemented all the policies you wanted to.

Overall though, its great to see the genre reborn, and show bush and brown how to do it! Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Real Politics 14 April 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has both the feel of something fresh and the excitement of politics. Just watch your popularity drop like a stone when you raise taxation or implement harsh gun controls. This game has it all. Play as either conservative, labour or any of your choice and show no mercy...just lower that monetary deficit and be the best head of state that you can.

Its good but does not deserve five stars as it is a game which gets old very quickly but does have the ability to drag you back to play when you are bored of the generic shoot 'em up. Well worth the political and economic expenditure.

2.0 out of 5 stars dont buy 26 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The game was fun for about 10 seconds. Then when i wanted to do more like introduce say military action or change the tax rate for the lowest earners i realised you cant. All you do is change the budgets slightly. That's all. If this were the finance section of other games like, prime minister for ever then it would be great but having it on its own as a single game. not much to do and becomes very boring. 15 is to much as well.
