IMG Reviews Democracy 2
8:06 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the political simulator Democracy 2 from Red Marble Games. The complex simulation game puts you in control of a country's government, with the ultimate goal being to grow your country and get re-elected. Here's an excerpt from the review:

You may be officially in charge, but you don't get to just do whatever you want. The only policies you can effect or alter are the ones you have the "political capital" to pay for. For example, I wanted to reduce the crippling debt caused by military spending in one of my games, but the political capital required to do so was in the mid-50s, and owing to either entrenched traditions in this particularly bellicose country, or my political ineptitude, the amount of political capital I could scrape up in any given turn was in the mid-30s. Political capital is generated by the ministers of each of the seven portfolio areas, and is a function of their loyalty and experience. I think, but I'm not sure, that your current popularity is also a factor in generating political capital, as would only make sense.
