If you enjoy Choose Your Own Adventure type games, you'll love This is the President. It scratches a Schadenfreude itch for the dystopian hellscape we currently live in, and it's equal parts fun, funny, and quite disturbing along the way, even with the odd choice baked in..

This Is the President has a good premise and some fun moments and choices. Playing as a scumbag who’s willing to do almost anything to get complete immunity while screwing or manipulating everyone else can be a hoot. But the concept clashes with the tone of some of the events and decisions in weird ways. You can think about being a good president but the need to get the amendment through overwrites any attempt at actual politics.

This is The President won't deliver much in terms of strategy, but will provide great writing that should pull you through an entire term of virtual presidency.

This is the President is not entertaining in its nature, at least for the vast majority of gamers, but those few who are really into this types of games might actually enjoy being in the shoes of the most powerful man on earth.

This is the President has an interesting concept but doesn’t have strong enough narrative, dialogue, or characters to carry it the entire way through.

This is the President is a perfectly patriotic blend of This is the Police, Suzerain, and We. The Revolution, presenting players with scandal after scandal after scandal to wriggle their way out of. Although there are a small handful of choices that corral you into picking the “right” option, the way you cope with the consequences is largely up to you. If you enjoy a novel’s worth of deranged narrative gameplay where choices matter like your life depends on them (and they do), This is the President will command enough mystery, intrigue, and excitement for even the highest of offices.

This Is The President certainly has its good moments, with its silly humor hitting the mark more often than not and its core plot servings its purpose well. However, it does wear out its welcome thanks to an over-reliance on filler and restrictive mechanics to try and curb the player's success. A little bit more trimming and this could have been a fantastic political game, but even so it still has plenty of quality behind it.
