After a few campaigns, it’s left me a little cold. Topical it may be, but the lack of engagement with issues and their effects makes it hard for me to see the theme (both animal and political) as much more than a lick of paint on a fairly well-worked but narrow game of numbers. Perhaps that’s what electioneering actually is but if I had to cast my vote, I’d be sticking with the push-and-pull policies of Democracy rather than Political Animals’ detatched campaigns of territorial control.
The new strategic game made by Positech Games has a delicious art design and perfectly applies human laws and behaviours to the animal kingdom.

With a strong artstyle and a clever idea, ultimately the lack of in-depth systems and the huge limitations on the gameplay killed the interest I had in this title.
