Anybody played this yet? (http://www.golemlabs.com/superpower2/) It's out in the UK on November 12. It's the sequal to the rubbish game Super Power (US) Global Power (UK) that came out some time ago and got reviewed/trashed by Venom. The last one had ridiculous logistics, and being landlocked was no reason not to have a wonderful magical navy of invisible ships that could whisp you troops off to wherever your heart desired, but I respected the effort when I found out the first game had only three people working on it out of love.

This new version is supposed to be much better, and to have had sufficient rescources and time spent on it to be a big improvement. I feel a review coming on.

that was one of the crappiest games ever - it was worse than CtP

The only good thing was immediate Global Thermonuclear War, but even that sucked.

I remember posters on that games forum got really pissed off when I classified it as a Nuclear War simulator... :)

Which reminds me I bought War Games on DVD the other week. Brilliant.
