Masters of the World - Geopolitical Simulator 3

Description

Geo-Political Simulator is a super-realistic one-of-a-kind geopolitical simulator, incorporating thousands of values and allowing the player (playing as the head of state of one of 175 possible countries) to access over 1000 different actions and to interact with 3D characters with over 6 hours of dialog. Since its first release in 2008, Geo-Political Simulator has become the gold standard in its field. This third version brings new game modes and a visual redesign.

NEW WORLD MAP, NEW INTERFACE

The game features a new visual interface and a new high-definition map that shows, in 3D, details for the entire plant on arable land, temperate and tropical forests, rivers, and urban areas. New construction projects are possible on the map: high-speed train lines, gas and oil pipelines, civil airports, commercial ports and shipping lines.

CHANGE THE WORLD BY PLAYING SEVERAL COUNTRIES

Play as more than one head of state, and have them collaborate or oppose each other to change the face of the world: solve the economic crisis, create a greener world, trigger a global conflict and redefine how the world is divided... Control the members of the UN Security Council, the EU or OPEC (to name a few), and decide where intervention is necessary, try to boost growth or impose your own prices.

In general a good game, but it is problematic that you have so many reoccuring activities like trade and other issues that you spend allot of time on. I would have hoped that unit techs would be more diversified. It is the same as previously, but there is at least a rech tree where you can patent new techs if you are the first. You can spend many hours playing it, but eventually the reoccuring activities can overtime take away some of all the fun. A good advice to the developers is to make a automatic help button, or let the ministers AI take over on some of these activities.
