  1. Traditional strategic and war gamers alike will be in heaven with the wealth of features to tweak and manage as you carve out your destiny in the real world-based computer simulation.
  2. I found myself to be bewildered by the erratic actions of the artifical intelligence as opposed to being genuinely upset. If you are looking for what would happen in a truly crazy world, SuperPower 2 will let you relive that very well and leave you walking away genuinely pleased.

    Although the gameplay is confusing and disorientating, the game as a whole is a nice package. It has great presenation with a simple, straightfoward interface, and the overall atmosphere gives off a nice world domination feeling.
  4. A better multiplayer title then anything in the strategy/world domination genre that has gone before, once you get past the rather shoddy original design interface.
  5. If you're looking for a game that's going to keep you on the edge of your seat, keep looking. This one is definitely not for you. If, on the other hand, you enjoy a game that will severely challenge your intellect (or you happen to hold a doctorate in economics or politics), then I heartily recommend this one.
  6. Suffers from a complete lack of polish, numerous bugs and crashes, and unintelligent AI.
  7. The gameplay wears a bit thin when you realize trying to accomplish real-life goals just isn’t very interesting.
  8. Even while you know that the game isn't the least bit realistic, you keep playing just to see what sort of craziness will happen next. But the novelty of curiosities like Fiji spying on Denmark fades in just a few hours, and when it does, you'll reach for the uninstall icon.

    Like anything this complex, it is by turns brilliant, incredibly frustrating and boring. There's too much information to cope with. [Christmas 2004, p.111]

    This game is awesome. It has the perfect balance between all three spheres, Politics, Military and Economy.

    This game is awesome. It has the perfect balance between all three spheres, Politics, Military and Economy.
    The economic 'engine' is great, it is hard to understand fully, but isn't needed to function your economy.
    It is very easy to manage your country, opposed to a game such as Rulers of Nations which has a bad interface, Super Power 2's is much better and organized. Even now (2011) servers go up regularly and there is an active forum, http://www.golemlabs.com/community/index.php.

    You must get the patch 1.4.
    This game is awesome, it is a must buy for people interested in politics or history in any shape or form.
