Democracy II
« on: October 23, 2017, 06:53:07 AM »

The name alone exposes its leftist bias.

Just heard someone talking about it on the radio, so I looked it up.
This is not a game you want brainwashing your children, so don't buy it.
Here's a couple of quotes from players critiques.

My biggest complaint is that there is no way to win the different scenarios if you choose any other political path than "progressive liberalism."

Overall 5/10

Pros:
- The idea behind it is good, you get to play a government and using different policies you try to get reelected while improving a country.
- Some concepts behind it are solid, both in terms of ecomics and social policies.
- It is easy to understand what each polciy does.

Cons:
- It is probably too easy to beat, just a bunch of algorithms to beat.
- There's only one way to "win" and that is pretty much going full "social democrat", nothing else seem to work.
- Very few scenarios.
- The consequences of some actions are totally off, like raising VAT to 70% and seeing your opinion rating go up.

I truly like the idea behind it, and I hope the author gets backing to develop it into 1) a real game, made by pros and 2) a more realistic simulation, but as it is now I cannot reccomend it.
