I've heard constantly that it feels like the cpu cheats... any owners of RISK mind shedding some light? (i played Dominion and the cpu also looked like it cheated)

Yeah its ridiculous, I have gotten halfway through a battle at my best and I get owned by the cpu. They are way overpowered.

More reasonable than against Cpu lol. The system randomizes very poorly in favor of hte cpu. PVP is fine.

Might wanna check if its ipod 2 compatible lol.

If you like these style games, look up Conquist 2 on the app store instead, it's probly the best Risk-styled game (it has a bunch of modes, and ONLINE MP). [also i have no relation to the dev whatsoever in case this comes across shill-like]

I don't want a signature.

For what it's worth, many people reported issues of losing when they have a huge advantage in the battles on the pogo version. It's possibly a port, though I'm not sure how much work is involved when converting from java to iOS.

EA/pogo supposedly said the game is working properly in that regard.

NOT gonna get this game.

The last update was in March. And since then there have been like a million complains and bad reviews.

Mainly, there is NO Online multiplayer.
I mean come on, really???

then also they are mad as hell regarding the CPU's ultra unfair A.I.
and the unrealistic odds.

Seems like EA have abandoned any efforts to improve this game.

Won't be buying unless they update with the features most players want.
