Risk: the World Conquest Game review

"Apart from this useful addition, the game is a faithful reproduction of the original, so what's the point? Obviously writing the number of your soldier is more convenient than trying to balance 75 little bits of green plastic on a map of Iceland. Conversely its a lot easier (and more fun) to say "Ha-ha I'm attacking China from Siam, prepare to eat mud, pig dog" than fiddle about with the cursor trying to select compared to watching a wooden cube rolling across the table, onto the floor and getting stuck in the soggy dog biscuit under the side board, Although the computer game offers little that you can't already find on the board game, this is undoubtedly an excellent conversion, capturing the spirit and the strategy of the original." - Zero Magazine Issue 05 (1990)
