What Gamespot Users have to say about Risk

  • Rating:9

    Inventive and compelling, not to be discarded lightly

    This game does what a pc version of risk should do--turn the game into something resembling more of actual warfare. With personified generals and battle plans to boot, this game turns this into a truer version of Napoleo... Read Full Review

    This is the best version of Risk available, far better than the "New PC Versions" They should use this as a template.

    By far this is the best version of Risk. It has the original map, which is good for a quick game. But more importantly it has an expanded map with more territories within each continent and new trade routes that can be a... Read Full Review

    Classic Warfare

    I found this to be one of the cheapest, yet most addicting multi-player game in ages. Of course, that was back in the 90's, but still. I'm writing this with the assumption that the reader has played the board game Risk, ... Read Full Review

    Classic Risk version fantastic but alternate version hardly entertaining.

    This specific Risk game proclaims to give the player the Risk a facsimile of the board game. Fortunately, they have produced the Classic version very well but there own creation has few problems. The Ultimate Risk game... Read Full Review
