Who says politics is boring?
The Democracy series started out in fairly lackluster fashion and has continued in the same general vein across this first sequel and continued until Democracy 3. They're not necessarily bad games, just a little on the dry side and which are likely to appeal only to those who really like crunching numbers in fairly serious fashion. If you're looking for something similar but with a bit more in the way of fun, perhaps Tropico might be of interest. This one is similar to the original, being a turn-based political simulator where you play the role of the president or prime minister of a nation and must make a variety of complex decisions in order to lead your country. There are a number of actions you can take each turn and which accurately represent the real political process, requiring lots of balancing and head-scratching, forever knowing that you can't please everyone all the time. There are a number of ways to finish the game, from winning all elections to being assassinated or ousted from office by terrorists but although this makes it sound quite fun, in reality, it's not. There's simply too great a sense of seriousness for this to be of much interest to the average gamer and really what it all boils down to is a lot of number crunching which just isn't that entertaining. The element of choice and decision-making is interesting and there are some real moral issues to deal with but at the end of the day, it's all a bit too no-frills and dry to keep anyone but the most serious of gamers happy.
