Summary: I played Allegiance way back in 1999-2001 during beta/retail. It had a really responsive group of developers (Microsoft Research) and a vibrant community. All these years later and the game is still just as fun, while the community (with the help of Microsoft's release of the games source code) has...
Summary: . Superpower should be avoided - do not buy it. Despite its quite fascinating concept of geo-political and macro-economic strategy where you lead a nation, Superpower however delivers a quite frustrating and unrealistic game in all of its strategic and tactical aspects.
Summary: The game is great for students of the modernworld. You can lead the mighty US or try to stay in power and hold on to Zaire. You can keep a democracy or start a dictatorship. You can sell and buy resources esential for your countries survival.
Summary: Honestly, if there was a "Superpower II" released I would buy it, but this game has several problems to allow me to enjoy it. You basically control any nation in the world. Thats right. In the WORLD. I've played as America, China, Japan, New Zealand, Czech Republic, Vietnam, Italy, and Romania.
If you get it cheep, then fine, but do not pay full price.

Summary: I got this game a week ago. I was surprised by the fact that a game with such detail, has NO MANUAL. What is up with that? Maybe I got a bum copy, but it was a gift, so I was not all that upset. The game needs a lot of help.
Summary: I wouldn't recommend this item to anyone newer than windows 98, because it freezes in the middle of a game. Very frustrating! Plus it can't save games at all! So make sure you have Windows 95 or 98! I love the game anyway! I'm waiting for a newer version.
Summary: This was the best simulator of the world where you can control your taxes, combat moves (especially where you use nuclear weapons to hit other countries), and plain out keep your country a balanced and resourceful area.
Summary: SuperPower is a real-time strategy game that has a great concept. You are not the "king of the world", but you function as a government of a chosen country. You are supposed to be able to control five elements: Demography (welfare of your people), Economy (domestic and trade), Secret Service...
Summary: I don't typically write reviews for the products I buy, but, motivated by both a sense of outrage and a desire to help fellow gamers, I feel compelled to write on this game. I bought Superpower because the concept was tantalizing: international affairs, globe-spanning combat, trade, diplomacy, and...
Excerpt: General/Summary: If ya see this game, pick it up.......I have been looking for a space sim for some time now. I always passed this one up, simply because I hadn't heard anything about and nobody could tell me anything about it.
