  1. Commander in Chief tries to give you a feeling of running a world power, but instead feels like a lame duck presidency.

    It's difficult to take this as a serious simulation of global politics.

    Detailed game that will be unforgiving If you severely mess with the population. The first whole day was a wreck but later I found the key to succeeding in this game is small tweeks to the system and slowly rise towards the overall goal you wish to achieve. I would say they need a patch to improve some bugs but other than that It definitely is better than other wannabe games like superpower(sp was fun but lacking alot)My first run I only achieved 200 points and was going to uninstall but after I gave another shot and did things right I easily achieved 38,000 points from one term in office. I am interested in seeing more scenarios and downloadable kits to be available as well as some more online interaction. Expand

    Detailed game, but horribly implemented. I cannot simulate more than a month without the entire world spiraling into retardation. The events are completely random, such as China randomly invading a country in South America (makes no sense). Collapse
