Game Information

Available on:PCFeb 16, 2017

Developer: Jujubee S.A.

Publisher: 1C Company

Genre: Strategy

Realpolitiks is a streamlined real-time grand strategy game that allows you to become the leader of any contemporary nation. Dive deep into the issues of the modern world, with its current geopolitical borders, using your country’s power and economic strength to engage in military conflicts and international affairs. Choose your own method of coping with other nations' interests, unexpected events, global threats and various crises. Deal with the disintegration of the European Union, the expansion of Islamic State, the aftermath of World War III and many other real and fictional scenarios. Based on three main political systems (democracy, authoritarianism, totalitarianism), Realpolitiks allows you to extend the influence of your country through various means, all in order to win the race for global domination. Use your diplomatic skills, economic advantages, military power and the full freedom of moral and ethical decision-making to become a world superpower and ensure the well-being of your citizens.

In Realpolitiks the player can rule an entire nation: the product is an ambitious 'strategic game', maybe too simple and shallow.

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 is a Europa Universalis-like, it's a grand strategy sets in the present and in the near future. It is suitable for everyone, but too easy for more experienced that are looking for a real challenge.

That being said, Realpolitiks is a really delightful game to have for on-the-go play, on a console that I would never have guessed would end up with something like this on it.
