I've tried the PC version and my head exploded; it's not a game to be taken lightly. That said, it's very polished, elegant and, most importantly, unique. I haven't tried the iOS version but I will soon, can definitely say that the interface should work well with touch input.

I've been looking forward to this ever since it was announced, cheers for the heads up!

It look really interesting and unique, but all I keep hearing (from ios and pc) from reviews is that it's super easy and not worth the money.

Seems there are only 2 political parties, voting day is a non event, players constantly get popularity of high 90s % even if they have outlandish policies, nobody objects to policies and if you create a policy that negatively affects your country, you just bring in another policy that does the opposite and it's fixed.

All in all, sounds like very little 'simulation'.

A great simulation and great that a premium title more comes to the iOS platform ... the Steam Version has two small expansions ... I hope they will come to the iPad, too!

I have both versions and yes, it is a great 'game' ... if you want to call it a game. It is a very well and realistic made political simulation. If you think, you could make it better than Obama & Co, you can test it. You will see, how many things are depending on each other and how fast you can get into deep trouble ...

Well worth the asking price!

I think that was a misconception because of people not using the difficulty slider, and also the game has been patched since then. But havent played it myself so not sure

Yep, very well! I would even say better than with the mouse at my Notebook.

This seems like a great addition to iOS, always glad to see more quality ports - especially simulation games even if they don't always get the fanfare they deserve.
