If you want to be a president or dictator of a country, try this game. Democracy 3 offers a variety of challenges to the player, which may include: riots, homelessness, credit downgrades, etc. Each challenge takes patience, skill and the right choices to remediate the given issues. In addition, you can implement various decisions, which will change the views of your citizens. Being able to make your citizens happy is one of many concerns, which will go through your mind while playing.
This game is a pure political simulator. Do not expect graphics like in shooters, this game offers many flow charts and data screens, which can be a bit overwhelming at first. You can easily find out which decisions may influence specific groups and at times one decision could make your population so unhappy, you could be assassinated over it.
DLC is always controversial and if you opt not to purchase it, this will not affect your initial gameplay experience but will make this game less replayable.
Replayability is a big factor when deciding on purchasing Democracy 3. Through the game itself there are not many nations to play from and depending on your thoughts on DLC purchases this may affect your opinion. This game does have a modding community so you can download extra nations if you wish.
The only negatives: The nation immersion and music. I honestly did not feel I was in control my specified nation like America, France etc. The only nuances you felt were the currency and the starting point of your nation but since the music and displays looked the same for each nation. Additionally, I wish you had the ability to create diplomatic ties with outside nations and create a trading system to boost the economy.
7/10 - Based on buying 1 DLC.
