Crisis in the Kremlin

Simulation 1991 Dos Dosbox Spectrum Holobyte Politics

Management driven strategy game placed in Soviet Russia

This is a top down turn based strategy with a heavy direction towards economic management and with a lighter portion of combat. That is because this game is meant as an economic and politic management of Russia, from 1985 to 2017. Within the game real life events such as the Chernobyl disaster are simulated and thus the game wants to be a sort of alternate history type of game, pitting you at the helm of Russia, to see how you would change the country's path if given the chance. Mechanics wise, the game plays as a top down commander, but a lot of choices are delivered to you as pop ups, where you have to choose between one or more options and go along with them. The create an interesting narrative, however, you will need to have a good imagination, since the game plays at a level that is far removed from the point of view of the individual. The ideal player will have a really god grasp of the socio-political situation of Russia at the turn of the century, as well as a good grasp of the socio political state of the world during that period. Otherwise you will simply lack the drive to advance in the game, since the options given are too specific and too stapled in real history. I recommend this game to history buffs only with a love for alternate history as well as a firm grasp of global politics at the turn of the century.
