Love this game1/13/2013
It's a great game, perfect for those who like strategy. But it's like crack: it draws you in and doesn't let you go. You'll spend hours and hours maintaing your nation, with no end in sight, and you'll be at the edge of your seat the entire time. The difficulty ranges from easy to impossible to not-even-fun-anymore. Just the same, if you have the time and the inclination, you should absolutely get this most engrossing game.
