  • Summary: Using the same hands-on military planning found in the original RISK board game, players now see battles come to life in vivid 3D environments, get advice from historic military leaders, and earn medals and special dice for strategic accomplishments. [Infogrames]

  1. Plays like the board game, but with whizbang 3D graphics that portray soldiers in battle whenever a player makes an attack. [Oct 2003, p.126]
  2. The visuals are pleasing enough without being obtrusive. [Oct 2003, p.71]
  3. Although the time in between turns alone may push modern gamers' patience past the breaking point, Risk: Global Domination stays true to its heritage and the enhanced online capabilities will go a long way towards maintaining players' interest.
  4. A solid board game conversion.
  5. The simple play dynamic of placing armies, rolling die, and attacking neighboring territories remains intact, but with a few nice extras like Mission Risk, Capital Risk, and a load of customizable game options. Is it fun? You bet. [Oct 2003, p.123]
  6. Facing friends is better, but even with the fancy animation and sound effects, why not just clear the kitchen table and play the original? [Nov 2003, p.178]
  7. 28
    There is absolutely no advantage to playing this game since even the single-player game is an eye-gouging, horribly monotonous experience.
