2.0 out of 5 stars The older version was much more versatile! 7 Sept. 2009
By Blossom
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have the same game for earlier versions of Windows. I expected to have at least the same options if not more for this new version but unfortunately it's ridiculously limited. One can only play world domination, not territory domination which makes playing with others much more fun. You must play with at least four players (of which three can be the computer so you don't need more people but you can't i.e. play against Napoleon only), the cards trade either with three of the same or three different ones but regardless of the combination, the value is the same.
In the old version, when the dice were rolling, you'd actually see the two pieces of land and a little animation of soldiers falling and canons disappearing as one was weakening.
This version is a cheap, 'easy' version of the game. I had finished playing in 2 days as I kept winning. It didn't seem to matter what star the generals had, they all were weak and had strange strategies that were easy to beat.
Very disappointing if you've ever played this game on pc before. If you haven't buy it, you won't know what you miss and if you like playing risk you'll enjoy playing it on your pc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original PC game! 21 July 2010

I assumed that this would simply be a more compatible version of the old Risk II computer game, but was sadly mistaken. You can only play the basic game structure, you can't see the game overview at the end, the animations are gone and the way cards are exchanged for troops is most peculiar.

Still a good game though, I'd recommend it to anyone who has played the board game and doesn't have enough people to play it with, but if you're used to the old game, this will be a dissapointment!

2.0 out of 5 stars big opportunity missed 3 Dec. 2009

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I can just play the original risk it keeps crashing but is still wonderful fun so I was really looking forward to a Hasbro licensed update. what a shame!!! virtually no choices to be made. you have no control over difficulty level or any advanced game options, so it is fun but only for "five minutes" a real shame this and I hope some-one will release a better risk soon as it can be so much fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game bad packaging 15 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase
I was disappointed when the product arrived. After paying £16, for a disk that looked like it had been burned to disk, labeled then stuck in case cd case, looks pretty naff! This was ordered as gift, it looks cheap and embarrassing and des not represent the image.
I'm hoping the contents work ok as the game is a favourite, but it is sealed and a gift.

I ordered this PC game for my dads Christmas present. I did not receive this game instead they sent me Battleship Risk. Totally different game. NOT HAPPY :( Seller has informed me they do not stock this game just one version of Risk which is the Battleship version. BEWARE BUYER.
