    Don't hesitate to try it as a flavorful and humorous new way to experience a beloved strategy template, with the AI or distant friends. [July 2011, p.69]

    Does for risk what Plants vs. Zombies did or tower Defense - made it colourful and gave it character! [May 2011, p.66]

    Messing with a beloved board game is a risky affair, if you'll excuse the pun. But Risk: Factions succeeds at streamlining the classic game and adding a little personality to it.

    *THIS REVIEW IS BASED OFF OF SINGLE PLAYER ONLY*... a fun, imaginative and humorous game, let down by the fact that the single player campaign is only 2.5 - 3 hours in length. Expand

    This game is so bad. If you want to play against an AI which rolls 90% of the time 5s and 6s then here you go. I played now easily 20 hours. The AI has always 3 suited cards for him, while you're stuck on like 4 of 2 different kinds etc. The list is so long.... Expand
