POWER..LIBERATE...MANIPULATE...DICTATE

zx737, Ciao

  • Excerpt: I read up about this game and thought, great. It has a very good idea behind and adapts itself in a way no other game has before. President Karasov has made himself leader for life of a republic;Novistrana. Political parties have given in to the humiliation and forceful tactics of Karasov. Karasov in the political is an evil beast, he's set up laws banning opposing political parties from rallying and meeting and on the whole banned opposing political parties.
  • Pros: Great idea .  .  .  .  .
  • Cons: but needs a lot of work doing to it .

Rule a country.... sort of

  • Excerpt: Republic the Revolution has a fantastic idea - usurp the corrupt government of a ex-Soviet country and become its new leader. Except the game falls down horribly on conception. So yes, it does have a very original idea. There is no tutorial, but there are small tutorial boxes that tell you things, and that pop up at inconvenient times explaining a very, very clumsy interface.
  • Pros: Original idea
  • Cons: Its just not very good .  .  .

Terrible.

Ian Schenck, Amazon

  • Summary: I spent $50 on this trash, thinking it a good game. I read previews, but not reviews. The game is a good idea, but they did it terribly. I would not even spend $5 on it.

Not worth it

John, Amazon

  • Summary: First of all after the 2nd hour of the game. You have to be on top of everything to control all the territory and win support. I mean everywhere. If u try and control one area the others lower. Extremely annoying. Secondly They don't speak english. I don't even thing its a language. The Sims make more sense then them. The conversations are useless due to this. DON'T BUY IT!

Good premise, not so good execution

S. Lawrenz "Lendorien", Amazon
2 October 2003
  • Summary: The premise of Republic is this: your parents were "disappeared" during the days of the Soviet Union. Now the man who did the deed is the totalitarian president of the country. You decide to remove him, and replace him with yourself. The game takes you from the beginnings of forming a political party, to the hard struggle against the government and other factions to gain control of the country. For students of political history, it's a dream come true.

Not the game I fell in love with, but still decent.

Mr. Timothy Johnson, Amazon
27 September 2003
  • Summary: Three and a half years ago, I read the announcement of Republic's development with great joy. Unlinear gameplay, multiple approaches, interaction which every individual citizen in the game... Ah, the joy I felt when I read those previews. Screenshot after screenshot came... delay after delay... and then we ended up with this.

Immediately disengaging

Daniel, Amazon
26 September 2003
  • Summary: I bought this game as soon as it was in store. After crashing for about three hours, I finally got it running. What I saw was disappointing. There is no tutorial, but there is six (count-em, six) poorly compressed images that pop up at inconvenient times explaining a very, very clumsy interface. I bought the strategy guide with this as well, but even then the learning curve has a tangent line with slope of infinity!! (Calculus 1 is haunting me, help!

Good game, but over-hyped

Mr. Timothy Johnson, Amazon
22 September 2003
  • Summary: This may go down as one of the most over-hyped computer games in history. Don't get me wrong, the game is pretty good, but it has been touted for so long, and delayed so many times; various reviewers over the last few years have carried on about its remarkable flexibility and wonderful graphics and game engine. In the end, it's good, but doesn't quite live up to the hype. The game is intended to be a political simulator.
