I was first introduced to Risk by playing the board game with a friend. After I got hooked on playing, I needed to find the computer game to practice so I could beat everyone else. Staples had the copy I had been looking for, along with Risk II in the same case. It is not a hard game, but a game of strategy instead. The options are quite plentiful. You can play a multi-player game, against the computer, or on remote computers. You can also choose the layout, whether it is classic Risk or a different variation. You can choose to play with the fast dice (which I recommend) or slow dice; if you want your moves set for a time limit; or if you would like to play domination or mission style. My favorite is the classic board, domination style, against two computer players in "hard" experience. The graphics are not too bad, they are not video game quality, but accomplish what they need to for the computer. The maturity rating is E for everyone, which abides by family games in my household. Overall, the game is an A. I like the game so much, in fact, that I have a copy in case my original goes missing!
