  • Summary: The Political Machine 2008 is, sadly, the one awful game (beyond its predecessor) to come from Stardock, a blemish on an otherwise good company history. It's graphically ugly: The interface is atrocious and the bobbleheads hardly look like anyone they're supposed to. The game mechanics are clunky and at times confusing, there's some horrible balance issues, the candidate creator is terrible... All together this feels like an alpha for a game we never got.

  • Excerpt: "My fellow Americans, it is a distinct honor to speak to you tonight as the President-elect." It's a magnificent phrase, and from Washington to Obama each American leader has reached such a point, yet how? Should anyone be interested in getting a grasp of the presidential campaign and its workings, then the Political Machine is the proper route.
  • Pros: Fun simulations, map is interactive
  • Cons: Too simplistic,issues are very basic
