    "I love to play the video games and this one is about war so there is much action to be had. The name of it is the Total War: Arena and it is soo good! You can even play it for free, online with other people that are also online. It is a war simulation game and boy is it a fun one, you should play too!"

      "I have always loved simulation games. I particularly like games where I can build civilizations and governments. Democracy 3 Africa lets me make decisions that control the fate of different countries."

      "I had high hopes for this game, but it didn't meet my expectations. It has too many limitations on game play that limit you from truly making the kingdom your own. I enjoyed some of the plot lines and the dueling, but not a great game overall."

      "This game centers on you being the prime minister or president of a democratic country. Throughout your time in office, you will be faced with deciding what to do during certain situations. You try to gain the most favor from your voters and ensure their safety and happiness."

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that games based on geopolitics and elections existed long before the emergence of personal computers? One of the earliest games was called The Game of Politics, created by Oswald B. Lord in 1935 which remained in circulation until 1960. The game, often shortened to Politics, simulates a simplified version of the presidential election in the United States of America - which features a map of the USA showing each state and its capital, speech cards, and a pair of dice - with the endgame being triggered once a player has won the majority vote. Another game of the same genre was released titled Diplomacy, created by Allan Calhamer in 1954 and released commercially in 1959. The game has a few major distinctions from most board wargames, with a main focus on negotiation phases wherein players spend most of their time forming and betraying alliances with their fellow players, forming beneficial strategies in the process. The game also removes dice and other game elements that produce random effects, leaving in-game events and its aftermaths entirely up to its players and their respective decisions.

    With the current rise in technology, plenty of games that imitate the themes and rules of political and government simulation have been released to the market, offering a wide variety in different platforms like personal computers, gaming consoles, and mobile phones.

      "While this solution is, indeed, a government simulation game, it lacked the realism and veracity I was looking for in a simulator. I found it good for quick fun, but poor for any kind of complicated long-term strategy, which was really what I had been hoping for."

      "Well I wanted a game that simulated governments, and how to run them, ive tried other games like the democracy series but it really didn't fulfill my needs. So I decided to look for other games, and Realpolitiks was suggested, and after playing it a while this was really what I was looking for. It has everything I wanted, It allowed me to dive head first into running my own government with real factors, I was aloud to run wild with real restraints. Overall im amazed!"

      "This game would be a great tool to teach players what it's like to lead a country. I have played the previous installments of the series and they did well with showing the tribulations of being a political leader. Having co-op gameplay this time around would make it easy to see how it is to work with others while in power."

As El Presidente, I have a government to run and an island to rebuild, thanks to that V.P. from you-know-where. This is a great government simulation game with many of the same problems and issues faced by real politicians."

You can take power sort of like a Dictator and give your citizens a hell of a life and take full command of your empire. I enjoyed Tropic 4 allot and highly recommend it for novice player and advanced players."
