Fate of the World (PC) - Review

VGChartz
20 April 2011
  • Excerpt: A few months ago, I wrote a preview for this title. In it, I stated that it could become a very good tool to educate people on the issues of climate change, and that it demonstrates the effects that climate change has on our world in a progressive style. The entire concept was wrapped into a strategy based card game that could be effective if the game was balanced properly.

Fate of the World: Tipping Point review

Gamedot
5 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Fate of the World: Tipping Point really impressed me as a whole. The gameplay is simple, but the deeper you delve, the more complex and challenging it becomes. You will be forced to consider each card that you play and how it will affect your campaign. Even if you ignore the global warming aspect of it, the actual premise of cutting down on using non renewable resources is an interesting one.
  • Pros: Theme of the game really makes you think about climate change. Game makes you think about each move. Nicely designed and simple in the controls.
  • Cons: Tutorial is too short and doesn't give enough detail. Level access is strange.

Fate of the World: Tipping Point Review | How To Doom Your Planet

29 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Back when I was at school (almost a decade ago, a grim thought indeed) the RM Nimbus machines that powered our IT lessons had an educational tool on them in the guise of a game; a programme called Slick. The premise was that you were to clean up an oil slick, using limited funds and resources, and generally make the world a better place in the process. It was pretty simple fun, although I always ended up plotting the boat into the coastline or something.
  • Pros: Excellent potential as an educational tool, Plenty of content to keep strategy enthusiast happy, Challenging moral choices available to the player
  • Cons: Excellent potential as an educational tool, Plenty of content to keep strategy enthusiast happy, Challenging moral choices available to the player, The limited tutorial tips throws players into the deep end quickly, Overly-busy user interface will frustrate impatient players, All the cute animals will die, and you'll feel guilty

Fate of the World

15 April 2011
  • Summary: Die Welt ist am Ende - zumindest steuert sie ab dem Jahr 2020 darauf zu. Die erschreckende Entwicklung, die unsere Erde in Fate of the World macht, schockiert und stellt den Spieler vor nur sehr schwer lösbare Aufgaben. Der Bildungsauftrag, den sich das Spiel groß auf die Fahne geschrieben hat, kommt definitiv an. Und darüber hinaus stellt es noch eine wirklich anspruchsvolle rundenbasierte Simulation dar.
  • Pros: sehr realistische Szenarien, große Komplexität, viele Statistiken und Auswertungen, hoher Anspruch, regt zum Nachdenken an, super Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis
  • Cons: anfänglich etwas schwieriger Einstieg, nur in Englisch verfügbar, grafisch sehr einfach gehalten

  • Summary: Быть может, Red Redemption сгустила краски, и на самом деле глобальное потепление не столь опасно, а запасов нефти хватит надолго. Как бы то ни было, подробности стоит черпать из более надежных источников, чем компьютерные игры или телепередачи. Но разработчики добились главного — увлекли экологией людей, далеких от этого вопроса. Встроенный справочник растолкует базовые термины и подстегнет интерес к серьезной литературе.

Fate of the World - Recensione

Everyeye Network
5 March 2011
  • Summary: Fate of the World nasce come un gioco ma diventa rapidamente qualcosa di più: uno strumento per capire concettualmente molti avvenimenti che fanno e faranno parte della nostra vita, vedendoli quindi applicati in una simulazione decisamente complessa e ben studiata, in grado di mostrare cosa potrebbe accadere davvero al nostro pianeta se le cose non inizieranno a cambiare in modo radicale.
