    Very solid interpretation of the board game. Especially fun when played against other humans. But, the campaign is only five missions; that's great in the sense that it doesn't get repetitive, but negative in the sense that you don't get more than a couple hours of campaign play.

    Great game, but they could have put in more. They made some neat additions to the game, but hopefully they will release a few extra boards with DLC, for the classic game especially. I remember an old computer game that used more detailed areas of Germany, Asia, the Mediterranean, etc. for maps, and I hope that those types come into this version eventually.

At any rate, this version of Risk is fairly versatile (play the original, 2008 rule set, or add in their quirky twists,) and the animations can be entertaining to watch. Overall, this game is worth the $10 it asks for. Expand

    A great arcade game combining the essential RISK themes and tactics and updating the experience with animated factions including cats, zombies and humans as well as new battlefield locations to control including a temple, crypts and barracks.

The game is complete with a mini campaign where you will get play with each faction the game has to offer, multiplayer both offline and online is a great addition and adds to the experience well, ensuring you will get your money's worth. Should you not like the new rules and maps, the classic world map and "normal" factions are available in the dedicated game mode "Classic Risk". Highly recommended for Risk fans as well as those who like RTS and arcade games. Expand
