Kinda realistic...

DrHouse | Aug. 29, 2012 | See all DrHouse's reviews »

But just kinda. The human behavior and how the population will react to changes and promises can't be accurately measured. But if you forget about that it becomes pretty interesting. The process of election, the changes, the promises, the twists. It's actually fun and somewhat realistic. The statistics are very complete and well presented. The graphics on the other hand are not very good. They are graphics from the early 2000s. The sound isn't better, and the music isn't better either. The gameplay and controls are fine for what the game is. But maybe the worst part is the price. It's very high for something you could just see on real life. If you're going to buy it better wait until it's on a 50% off sale.
