Do you crave power? Could you do a better job of running the country than the people currently in charge? Are you sick of corrupt politicians making stupid decisions that benefit only themselves? Could you keep enough of the population happy to win re-election, and still turn around the economy and deal with the national debt? Be warned it's not as easy as it sounds...

Democracy 2 is the ultimate political strategy / simulation game. Based on a complex Neural network, the game simulates the motivations, loyalties and desires of everyone in the country. As president or prime minister, it's your job to balance the need for income from taxes against the demands of the voters. Do you want your country to be an eco-friendly green paradise? or a socialist utopia? Will you pander to the patriots, the liberals or the religious pressure groups? Can you keep crime under control without destroying the civil liberties of your citizens?

Democracy 2 covers the whole range of political opinion and policy, from debates over stem cell research and school prayer, through the provision of state health care and benefit payments to the unemployed, right across to tax shelters for the wealthy, the death penalty, military spending and civil rights. regardless of where you stand on political topics, you will have the option to put your ideology to the test. This newer version of the game has a vastly increased selection of policies, far greater accuracy of simulation, and subtlety of gameplay, and also features a selection of real world statistical data for comparison to help you put political choices in context.

Also new to Democracy 2 is the concept of cabinet ministers. Each area of policy now has a minister, appointed by you, and with their own loyalty and political opinion. You need to keep the ministers happy if you are to generate enough 'political capital' to successfully push through the more controversial policies. In Democracy 2, every policy has a varying level of controversy which will affect how easily it is changed. Introduce school buses? no problem, but attempt to introduce or repeal the death penalty of military conscription and you can expect to need strong political backing!

    Continues to crash, I can't get support. Don't waste your money. Can't rate lower than 1 star.

  2. Not what I had hoped
    by Jeremy Aldrich, USA - Apr 23rd 2010

    As leader of your own country, you have to solve some problems with limited resources, while not angering any powerful special interests. I like the interdependence of some of the game's variables, but the fun factor is pretty low even for someone who likes politics.

  3. Good for One Game
    by Ric Hansen, USA - Mar 12th 2010

    This game has absolutely no re-playability. It is a one time game, then you have it masted and have no reason to play it anymore. Save your money.
