A faithful recreation as well as a nice update.

If you are a fan of the game risk I recommend this with no problem.
Even if you are a new comer this is a pretty cool game.
Decent graphics with a charming story, even the the single player is only a couple hours long.
What makes this game shine is the multiplayer. Couldnt recommend the online multiplayer though cuz one game could potentially last up to a couple hours. Luckily you can save.

Playing with your buddies at home is where this game is at, and how any risk game should be played.

Highly recommended.

Excellent game - I'd never played RISK before, but found it quite easy to follow and very addictive!

Great strategy game!

Risk is indeed one of the greatest board games to ever grace flat surfaces, that is no question. However, does the game do such a terrific game justice?

The short answer, yes.

The long answer however... The game does an excellent job at combining new and old together. With the original Classic mode still playable as well as the new Factions version, there is something in it for everyone. It is great for old fans, but also provides a new medium for younger kids to appreciate this excellent game. Single player is a bit short but the multiplayer is where it is at. Whether with friends all on the same couch or across the globe, you can test your Risk skills with all types of people. My main and only complaint, would be the Enemy dice rolls. Perhaps I just have some of the worst luck in the world but when attacking a territory with only one soldier and you have nine as well as a bonus in that area, you should win, not lose... MULTIPLE TIMES.

With that said this is an excellent reincarnation of a classic game and although I may have some of the worst luck, perhaps you will be lucky and someday be playing this must have game.

Take the Risk, Buy it.

Risk is a cult classic board game. With RISK Factions, players have the choice to play classic RISK or the new Factions Mode, where you're got various new control points on the maps that can give you advantages. The factions add some basic personality to the game, but they don't bring new gameplay features, which is actually a good thing, as Risk is already a well-balanced game.

There are 10+ maps to play online or offline, dependent on the number of players in the game, various options to shorten or lengthen games, and it features a seemingly lag-free online experience.

Seeing as how Risk was already a perfect board game, and they've given us a digital version, plus the new factions mode, the game is simply perfect for the price.

Risk is, quite possibly, one of my favorite board games of all time. Five distinctly different factions, with arguably different interests to vie for total world domination. Definitely a fun update, maybe for an expansion/DLC pack we will get ninjas and pirates too.

Online multiplayer is quite fun, but it's difficult to get games going as there don't seem too many people with it.

Risk with New options is Great

I think they did a great job at updating this game for the Arcade. If you are an old Risk board game fan you should check this game out.

Wow, what an amazing game. It's 2010 and it takes this long for Risk to come to XBLA?! Seriously! Anywho, I bought this game as soon as I started the trial. Yes, it has some balance issues and what not, but the game is just pure fun. Especially if you have a few friends to play with.

I recommend this game, it is so far my fav XBLA title of 2010, hands down!
