The Corporate Machine

This game was and still is a good finance/Risk-like game. Though the game is a decade and a half old (coming out in the mid-'90s, when I first got it), it still plays pretty well. Quick rundown of the game has it play out in a strategy similar to Risk, where you attempt to develop your product and get it on the shelves of a region. In the very beginning, you don't have to worry about matching any of the multiple desires of the regions you map out. But eventually, you will run into competition that will start competing for that product placement and could shove you out (take over your region). To offset things, you build headquarters, media centers (to put out marketing campaigns), research buildings (to research better quality and faster/more efficient parts) and of course your factories which build the item you're trying to sell. Graphics aren't superb, but game play is excellent. There is a high score chart to play against and so on. There is only a slight learning curve to it, but nothing that can't be figured out within 10 minutes of the game. If you've never played it, $1.99 is a steal (current sale price) for the entertainment value. But it would still be a good buy at $5.99 or so if it wasn't on sale. (Normal price is $9.99 and I'd say that's a bit high for any game over a decade old [including faves like Sim City].)
