Republic: The Revolution
A Low Score, you might think, but Republic was one of those games that just oozed potential, but sadly never lived up to the hopes and dreams of players. Perhaps the ultimate lesson for developers in how to aim far, far too high, Republic should still be praised for trying to achieve the spectacular.
A wonderful idea - start a political party in a Soviet-style state and rise slowly to power - it was let down by being slow-paced, incomprehensible and eye-meltingly boring. But it could have been so much more. Designer Demis Hassabis - a student of grand spin master Peter Molyneux - tried to cram so much technology into Republic that the end result was a sad mess.
One of gaming's greatest missed opportunities: a political simulator that forgot games need to be fun as well.
