Fast way to play Risk! Addictive!
Terrific game and app. Very addictive and very good for teaching one how to play the game well and formulate winning strategies. I would have given this 5 stars but there are two glaring issues that I would like to see EA fix to earn a perfect rating.
First, while there are modes for “play and pass” (share iPad with friends around a room) and LAN multiplayer (great if your friends are all on the same local network), this game really deserves online multiplayer with integration to Game Center. I would love to play this with my son who is away at college.
Second, after getting quite good at this (over 100 games played now), I can beat the computer (single player mode) in Easy or Medium mode every single time. That said, there is a very unrealistic jump in difficulty from Medium to Expert mostly driven by tampered dice rolls. Results of dice rolls are very obviously not “random" in Expert mode, which I feel is wrong to mess with. Odds are odds and dice rolls shouldn’t get harder despite “more skilled” players. I don’t feel like they should mess with the dice rolls but leave odds alone and just make the other bots “smarter” about their offense and defense as would be the case in real life playing other people. Leave the odds of chance alone.
While the Application License Agreement states that they can serve you up ads, they implementation is horrendous. BUYER BEWARE!!! They will implement push notifications on the front end of your app AND have a scrolling marquee at the top asking you if you want to buy Tetris. this causes the app to crash and there is no recourse. NO I don't want Tetris on my iPad, I just want to play the game without you pushing out a feature that crashes the game.
Use your head EA, don't push out something like this on a Saturday morning and then have no developers available to: (a) roll back the update and kill this feature until it is actually working; or (b) put out an update like this during the week when you actually have some developers available to fix the problem.
You lost some serious brand equity today with your consumers. I hope you make it up for those who paid a premium for this app by offering some deep discounts on your other ones in the app store... only DON'T tell us about it by a push notification or ticker at the top of the version of Risk which I am "licensing" from your company.
Now that the Eurogames are growing in popularity, the long-ignored faults of old board game standbys like Monopoly and Risk are becoming quite visible. Both these games have certain problems in common: both tend to be over long before they end, requesting players see a lengthy campaign through to a foregone conclusion even when that might mean an hour or more of play left to come. And both are games of strategy that masquerade as games of luck, but in which the role of luck is perhaps too great (that's much worse with Monopoly).
But with this version of Risk, by automating many of the aspects that make the game so long (most notably the many interminable die rolls that make turns drag on forever), is probably more fun to play than the actual board game. This improves Risk's worth as a game tremendously; once it's obvious one player will win, the time until his victory is secured is wonderfully shortened. It, doesn't obscure the fact that Risk is mostly a fairly simple troop maintenance and die-rolling game, but it does make it much easier to enjoy it for what it is.
