What Gamespot Users have to say about Risk II

  • Rating:7

    More addictive than crack, in both good and bad ways.

    Long: What can I say, it's risk! though speedier and less complicated to play than the board version. The layout is simple and so are the rules, beginners won't even need to open the manual as the game will help you ... Read Full Review

    The dice are rigged; AI only wins because it cheats. Otherwise, it's an awesome game.

    My main bone to pick with this game is the cheating AI. Instead of programming an AI that is actually intelligent, they just made it so that harder AI players almost always roll higher than you. This ruins the fun of sin... Read Full Review

    This is an example of a truly great gaming concept that is very poorly executed, oftentimes leaving your very angry

    Risk II I was expecting much more from this game. The concept of world domination is perfection in the world of stategy gaming but the way in which this game was constructed left far too much to be desired. Classic... Read Full Review

    Suprisingly entertaining!

    I bought this game for a very bargain-bin price, and I shure was suprised how good it was. This game is, of course, adapted from a board game, so it is not extremely deep. But the AI is chalanging, and I will admit it is... Read Full Review

    Direct from the board to the screen.

    There's not much to say about this game, it’s your average board game to video transfer. I like Risk a lot so I enjoy it as well as anyone who plays, or has played Risk. The AI is well rounded, although it can be dumb ... Read Full Review

    Was worth the money I paid but not the time I invested.

    This game was a God send when I got it. It really was a lot of fun to play for the very short time that I was able to play it. It was a revolutionary advancement over the original game and lended itself very well to mo... Read Full Review

    Great Game!!!

    This game is good. Much easier than the board game, because you don't have to move the pieces yourself. Same time mode is a great feature. I always wanted something like that. And it makes the game much harder, and pu... Read Full Review
