  • 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.

  • Summary: For a $20 political game, you get quite a lot of gameplay. The single player experience is pretty cool and the 3D bobble heads and map are nice updates from PM2004. The candidate editor is great. There's more replay-ability than before with the campaign mode and a few different scenarios.

  • Summary: This is a game that has great potential. The first version of the game was pretty simplistic, but still a lot of fun. This time around, everyone expected a more refined version, with deeper features. Unfortunately that didn't happen.

  • 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?
  • Pros: Fun simulations, map is interactive
  • Cons: Too simplistic,issues are very basic
