Customer Reviews

  • Needs To Be Optimized

    by FinnJakeBMOPrincessBubblegum

    Will give it five stars if they optimize it for iPhone 5s.

  • Fun but difficult most times.

    by PrometheusReign

    I like how the AI is smarter but on hard mode, you rarely win any dice and get steamed rolled by an enemy with more troops than you and it's impossible to win when you fight the computer who has 5-10+ more troops than you. Normal mode is the best due to it being fun yet challenging and you win most if the time. Overall, not bad by EA but then again, it does need some fixing.

  • Very fun

    by Jonathan2810

    I really enjoy this game. It's faster then the original board game and it's fun to play with friends.

  • This game is awesome

    by ANM987

    Anyone who says the computer AI "cheats" obviously doesn't understand that this is a strategy game. The computer (on hard) killed me the first couple times I played but after a little practice I can now beat the computer everytime no matter what. I laugh at those dumb people who say it's "impossible"... They should stick to playing bubble burst

  • Not sure why others are giving bad reviews!!?

    by Samwise Gambgi

    I'm not sure why anyone is giving this game bad reviews. It's not too difficult even with all players on the board. The AI is challenging at times, but you just have to have a good strategy! I've decimated them all on medium with ease. Great computer opponent! :) Thanks for making a version of my favorite game that I can play as often as I like!

  • RealTime ONLINE MULTIPLAYER NEEDED

    by ShimSham4

    This game would be great if it only had online real time multiplayer game play. I know so many people that would buy this if it was capable of this. Look at the number of players on all the knock off risk wannabes that offer this. It's a no brainier and desperately needed! 5 star with that update!

  • Update please

    by snakeman02

    I beat the game in every possible way beat the game in vetran mode with all the computers and played local play with my brother IT NEEDS ONLINE MuLTIPlayer I'm so bored with this game right now

  • Still playing after three years!

    by DBatDagger

    Great and addictive, just like the classic board game. This is better than all of the knock-off's. Love the sound effects. Easy to pick up and play with very little training. I'm glad for the pass and play. One improvement would be different maps, that would definately increase the replayability. Still playing after 3 years!

  • Great and fun

    by Grantbrianmicheal

    Good way to pass the time. And quicker than the board game

  • Okay

    by Rosie_red

    It's a really fun board game, but not an app. It is hard to win and gets boring at times.

  • Woot!

    by Thundermagnet

    A great recreation of one of my favorite games; may want to refine the card system so you can see what you are getting. Another nice addition would be multiplayer on one device. Great game!

  • ios risk a bit disappointing

    by Starbuckmw

    Risk fan for forty decades. Saw 0.99 sale and bought. I had board game as child, loved Mac 3.5 floppy version in 1980s, and even bought cd-rom version for windows. ios version should be better than all of the above, yet worse. To improve, need to at least offer features of previous versions AND need customization options: 1. Let me customize AI type ( turtle, aggressive etc) and color. 2 needs toggles to turn off some unnecessary animations. 3. Add card option reward in between static and exponential like (4-6-8-10-12). 4. Alternative world maps like some of the risk clones offer.

  • What mobile risk should be

    by Allen garoni

    It's simple and just like the board game. It would have been nice if they added objectives and other maps. I would have given 5 stars if it was optimized for my iphone 5

  • Glitch and flaw

    by Faqkyou

    When you click on the music note on the menu screen it brings you to a white blank page and you have to close out of the app to get back in to play the game Computer will win when it has and number and most of the time won't lose any troops for instance I attacked 10 to 4 I lost 9 computer did not lose 1 I attacked again same territory 5 to 2 lost my troops AI didn't lose one kept happening like that the whole game until the computer finally won so very unfair most of the time I didn't even get a card the AI always got a card not good it was a fun game at one time and until they fix the flaws with the dice rolling

  • Total war

    by Steffenator17

    This is the only problem I have. Computer uses total war WAY too much. Number of uses should be limited for everyone and the only thing wrong is the outcome of said total. I had 14 in a territory. Got attacked by 15. Comp uses total war, kills all my 14, and only loses ONE guy. Idc who you are, any risk player of any risk game would agree if that was rolled, computer would've lost more than one guy.

  • It ok

    by Destroyer1666

    The thing the frustrates me is that when you and the computer get the same number on the dice the computer automatically wins. It happens so many time I quit it for periods of time before I can play without breaking my phone. I think you should have something special for when that happens I mean come on is it that hard to make a great board game into a phone game?

  • Strongly Suggested Suggestions

    by La'PunkWithAngelWings

    I love the FRAK out of this game. Every time my friends and I get the chance to huddle around the table in the garage, we do so with beers in our hands and expect a good time. My first suggestion to help make this game incredibly better as an application would be to add more available maps to play on, for example: the United States, Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire and the entire collection of famous World War 2 battlegrounds. My second suggestion would be to add more game types to play like Caste and Secret Missions. And last but not least (in fact arguably the most important) would be to broaden the online play. I think I speak for all of us who play when I say that we would like to have more online opponents to play besides people we know personally, incorporate Game Center. This would add a huge variety to the game as well as adding endless hours of play and I am most definitely sure that it would increase ratings as well as downloads and users. Please consider my suggestions seriously. I love this game and would look forward to being able to enjoy it in it's many forms. Graci!

  • Needs a new update

    by Yankee181

    Overall, this games is great. It just needs an update that makes it easier to play. also it needs a new ios 7 update and new retina display

  • This is risk

    by Great idea1

    Does not crash, dice seem to work fine, and it is possible to beat hard computer. I win 3/4 games depending how aggressive the comp is at the start. This game works. People on front page complain and are probably just terrible at risk.

  • No support

    by Retry4z

    Bad app, and no update since 2011. Try Conquist Tournament - it's Risk done right.

  • Helllllllp

    by Plz hellllllp me

    Can I play with my dad who is on Mac book air

  • Do not buy

    by Xxpissedoff

    When you set the difficulty to hard, the only thing that changes is the amount of bs. I had 14 troops and couldn't be 1 he was rolling numbers like 3 and I had straight 1's. Honestly? You random number generator is flawed and this game was a complete waste of money. It's Impossible to win.

  • Spammy Promotions

    by Riche127

    They keep spamming the screen asking if I want to install one of their other apps after every single game. I click no thanks every time but they keep asking over and over.

  • Not fun.

    by Yes2one

    The computer's odds are nowhere near accurate. It was a fun game until the last update!

  • Like the game, but....

    by Penguin 1502

    It keeps freezing in mid play! I then have to close/reopen it only to lose everything and have to start a new game. No easy way to communicate issue to developer. Fix this please!

  • Stupid ads on a game I paid for!!!!

    by Hvghvc

    Why the heck do you put advertisements on a game you make people pay for? Pisses me off. Game is okay but I feel cheated!!!!

  • Game is not full screen

    by JohnB3d

    Game is not full screen on iPhone 5

  • Worthless

    by Cwcudney

    This game is ridiculous. I like a challenging game, I don't get upset if I have to replay a level a time or 5, but I shouldn't have my tail end handed to me every time even on the easiest mode. When I have 45 men on one space I shouldn't get decimated by an AI that has 1 man on each space on only 1/3 of a continent. I deleted this app about a year ago and forgot why. Thanks for the reminder.

  • Horrible

    by Djthvhgzf

    All this game is trash.

  • Worst app doesn't even work !!!'

    by TheChossenOne

    Don't waste your money

  • Wormy apple product

    by dreams and nightmares

    CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH THAT A COMPUTER SHOULD HAVE FAIR PLAY AND THE RISK COMPUTER IS NOT COMPLYING WITH HUMAN PLAYER , THIS IS AN ERROR OR ON PURPOSE? I CANNOT HELP THINKING PURPOSE BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE THAT DO THINGS ON PURPOSE CAUSE THAT IS THEIR ONLY PURPOSE! ANGRY? YES ! WHEN I GO TO PLAY A "GAME" THAT IS WHAT IM LOOKING FOR NOT AN UNFAIR ILLOGICAL WAR! 10 TO 1 JUST THAT ! IF YOU WERE ATTACKED BY 10 FULLY ARMED SOLDIERS AGAINST ONE MAN THAT MAN IS RAMBO AND WILL BE TERMINATED EVEN IF HE SHOULD TAKE OUT ONE OR TWO OR EVEN THREE ITS ALL OVER! THIS GAME IS THE RISK!!!

  • TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY

    by cannowspeakspanish

    The game just isn't fun. The game just dominates every time. Seriously ridiculous.

  • Not like the board game

    by Mastermazzi

    When I bought this game I was under the impression it will be attacked dice, defense dice, airfields, and goals like the real game sadly I was wrong. IF YOU WANT PEOPLE TO BUY THE GAME GIVE THE FANS WHAT THEY WANT!

  • Unrealistic odds

    by AME100

    I read several reviews before I downloaded Risk and they warned me that the odds when you attack are nearly impossible, but I assumed that it was a strategical error on their part, but it's not. The AI rolls sixes nearly every time making it extremely difficult to capture enemy territories

  • No online play?!?!? No support?!?!?

    by SasquatchSurvivor

    I just bought this game and it is a pretty good game of risk but there is no way to play multiplayer online and there haven't been any updates since 2011!!! What happened to EA? Don't they care anymore???

  • Needs iOS 7 & GameCenter Support

    by ippyG

    -please optimize for iOS 7 -please allow ability to invite friends; otherwise, what's the point?

  • Do not buy!!!!!

    by JLPcool

    Horrible game, cheats, computer gets 80+ troops per round, you get 3. DO NOT BUY

  • Very hard to beat

    by Thisisme3

    On easy the game is insanely hard to beat. The dice randomization is WAY off. I've lost 64-1 (or other way high numbers against 1). Not fun to always lose. Can't even move up to medium or hard because easy is not easy.

  • Omg!

    by Hamidmt

    Why Ea dont update this game for 4 inch display?

  • Well that was a waste

    by MIDI Junkie 2x

    I am an avid risk fan, unfortunately no one I know or live with or near shares the feeling. I was really hoping that this app would allow me to play against my old college friends (who are now around the country) like I used to. Unfortunately, you can only use this app on a local network or by passing the phone around. If I want to or was able to play risk with people in the same room... I'd just get out the freaking board!!!

  • CPU DEF GETS 5+6'S

    by XxxAnnab3113xxx

    Sadly numbers mean nothing it seems like your dice actually roll random but CPU seems to only get 5s and 4s

  • Hard to win

    by Dean789

    I love the game, but like the other reviews say the dice rolls make it very hard to win. I lost with 13-1. The AI gets the same roll I do about every third roll. People have been complaining about this problem since 2011 and EA still hasn't fixed the issue which just shows how much they don't care after you buy the junk they are making.

  • Fix the AI

    by Steven W Marra

    I just lost 10 troops as purple to 1 blue troop. 1 troop!

  • Please

    by Riissk

    Pleeaase fix the AI update

  • Are you kidding me or what?

    by Giuseppe Campo

    You cannot win. The computer gets an astronomical amount of extra troops. And always rolls 6s.

  • AI is overpowered

    by Tribeleader

    You can't win the game at all its impossible. Plus if you get a tie the ai automatically wins. Don't get the game unless you want to be mad at something creators please fix the game.

  • NO iOS7 SUPPORT?!?!

    by Timmy54321

    The app constantly freezes, and the game doesn't fit the iphone 5 screen!, I should get a refund. And why would I buy the iPad version if they can't fix this version.

  • Fix AI

    by Ipod.

    On average i lose 5-1 troops...then there's the ridiculous 20-1.. If you're going to give the AI rigged dice i want some too..

  • How about an update?

    by Maxx!

    Love this game, but for a paid app, why are there ads. And for a paid app with ads why hasn't it been updated for iPhone 5 yet?

  • Multiplayer

    by New_Mexico

    I would love to play people from the net instead of just a local network.

  • Would it kill them to provide a *useful* update?

    by Mesheler

    Seriously, this is 1970's technology on an iPhone!

  • I don't recommend this game.

    by Fortinbras.

    Two stars because even though I think it's terribly not fun I still want to play out of boredom but the only strategy I've found to win is to place as many troops as you can in 1 country, attack opponent, move all troops to newly acquired country & repeat. So boring but the AI is rigged to have the upper hand even on easiest difficulty. NOT worth your $2.99. Trust me.

  • Garbage

    by adamhenning

    Everything EA makes is garbage, and this is no exception.

  • Computer rolls to win

    by chasehillttu

    The game is fundamentally flawed in that the computer wins 90-95% of its rolls in simulation and you are lucky to get 50%. Better hope you are Ender Wiggin, else you are destined to watch your armies perish to double sixes over and over.

  • Terrible do not buy

    by Submit review 134

    The AI cheats so much. I had all territories owned except for one and the next turn the computer won. It cheats and gets ridiculous amounts of troops.

  • ONLINE MULTIPLAYER PLEASE

    by Renews1234

    If this had full multiplayer capabilities and could play against friends anywhere it would be the best game in the AppStore.... It's 2013! How is that not updated yet!!!

  • The game is okay

    by Wutteva

    The ads are ridiculous, though. There is a scrolling ad for their products, a popup ad after you go into the game, when you pause it, when you finish a game, when you change an option, when you breath, basically whenever they can possibly put one in. Get a different risk game since you get spammed constantly, on this one. Keep your spam to yourself, EA.

  • Uhm sound problems.

    by Jullie

    I honestly just want to turn off the sound, but the game redirects me to a blank white page and freezes there every time. Used to be so awesome that I could actually access my library from the game. All in all still pretty good.

  • Meh

    by Matt .Man

    Is ok and fun but can you make it so you can make peace with the other players so you can have allies. When that happens 5 stars

  • Should add team multiplayer

    by Nperez!

    It's a good game but they should let you play in teams on local pass n play

  • Fun, needs harder opponents

    by Rymena

    Fun gameplay, just like the board game. Those who say the computer cheats don't understand the distribution of troops. My only wish for improvement is for a harder difficulty option; I beat 5 opponents on hard without much effort.

  • Fix this please

    by Computer is cheating!(3

    I hate how the computer plays with loaded die. This isn't a problem when I play with my friends so I know it something to do with the program I lost 56 troops to 7. Please fix this then I will give 5 stars.

  • Needs online multiplayer

    by brantwj

    Classic game translates well to an iOS app. Haven't had any issues with crashing. I only wish there was an online multiplayer option, like EA's Scrabble.

  • Ads and Dice Odds are Dumb

    by Zach Tate

    Every time I go to the main menu, I get some ad for another EA game, constantly annoying. And the random number generator in this game must take bribes.

  • Too many ads

    by Fjejjxjxussjdjdi

    The animations are too slow and cannot be turned off. Advertisements constantly bombard you, even though you paid for the game. Lame

  • Upsetting

    by JBN130

    Now maybe it's just me but why can't I play against my friends? We should be able to directly connect to specific people and message and what not. The game is great but gets really boring just playing the computer all the time and playing random people. Your trying to take over the world, shouldn't you be able to talk smack to your buddies while doing it?

  • TOO HARD DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!

    by tylerdechance1995

    WAY TO HARD ON "EASY" MODE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UPDATE YOUR APP TO IPHONE 5(S) SCREEN SIZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
