Critic Reviews for Realpolitiks
Realpolitiks really wishes it was something as grand as Europa Universalis, but in reality, it's more akin to the Tropico games or a souped-up Football Manager. You have a lot of systems to manage, but the choices you make within these systems aren't as open as we'd like and you're left spinning countless diplomatic plates without the agency befitting such a seat of power. The end result is a grand strategy game that struggles to find a middle ground between accessibility for newcomers and long-term investment for genre veterans.
Realpolitiks suffers from being designed simultaneously for the PC and mobile devices. It's really hard to create a game that will be successful on both platforms. Jujubee's creation takes inspiration from big, complex strategies and at the same time simplifies the mechanics and the audiovisual side. There will be no success on the PC, perhaps the future mobile edition can do more.
