This is a good game to learn strategy - planning - it is a good game for young people - it will help them in real life decisions - when I was a kid - we loved playing the board game - 10 years old - very rarely lost a game = Thank you for including this game in the package

The game is Ok but it could be much better. There use to be a video risk which was much better. It's still fun for a little while. Needs to have more levels, needs to be some what harder.

I'm a great fan of board games, and this is one I had not played before. Unless you are playing with other real people, which I was not, I don't see the attraction. You are given (or select) a color, and then you have to place your men where you think they will do the most good. But the battles are won by a roll of the dice, and you can lose a lot of men if your rolls are of lower value than your opponents. That is simply luck--there's no skill at all. With all the on-line games available for multiple players these days, I don't see the attraction of a battle board game where you have little control over the outcome. Definitely not my cup of tea.

I come at this from a slightly different angle to most of the other reviewers as I have not played Risk before either as a board game or as a video game. Risk is a very interesting game. It can be very cerebral but with a lot of dice invovled. This means that even if you have thought your strategy through it does not always work! The easy level is just that - easy. Beyond that I can usually beat the medium level now after about ten games. I have not tried multiplayer yet. At last I have found an interesting "board" game from Gamehouse.

This game suffers from the same issue as the CD issued several years ago in that the dice rolls most often favor the computer players in a cheap attempt to make it challenging. I have played Risk many times against humans and know my skills are better than the outcomes I have experienced playing against the AI in this version. Additionally, one is not allowed to place one's initial armies manually. The computer decides where to place them and generally places them in illogical positions in relation to game play.

Tried Easy setting once and it was too easy. Played many times in Medium setting, won all except the first time. Tried Expert setting once and it seem all other players will gang up on you. Will continue with Expert since I'm bored with Medium setting now. The options allows you to configure the game to play fast paced. This game is ok if you can't found other human to play (because it takes a long time) .

Risk is a great board game, but has made a minuscule port to a video game. Game options are limited, and fullscreen has no widescreen option. You get to choose a color for the teams, and have the option to have the game automatically set up the board or to take turns and manually set up. You can also choose to play against the computer or add players so that friends and family can play against you, this is done by taking turns at the computer, not online. At the beginning of each round, you receive more soldiers, with a minimum of 3, depending on what continents you have conquered. Now you place your units and attack, which is where the strategy begins. When rolling the dice and actually attacking, the odds are random. I pitted 10 against 3 and got defeated, not exactly equal. When you play the game, you only get to place soldiers, no other units. After attacking, you can move surplus soldiers to other places you have conquered, but must leave at least one unit per conquered area. You do collect cards for different things during gameplay that, when you have three of a kind or one of each, can be exchanged for more soldiers. There is an achievements system that earns medals, but has no effect on the gameplay. This is mainly the only replay value. As for sound, the sound effects are alright and the game music is fitting for the basis of the game. Last, the graphics. They are acceptable, not bad by any means, but could use some polishing. You do get some animation on game load, during combat, and at victory or defeat, which is a plus. All in all, this is good game for fans of Risk, and does take some strategy, but is more fun with friends and definitely could use some improvement.
