Game Vortex reviews The Political Machine 2008

Ricky Tucker reports:

''As interesting as politics are, you hardly ever see a game focused on them where you aren't a General helping to install a new regime or some sort of assassin/super soldier working to topple one. The Political Machine 2008 takes neither approach and lets you see if you have what it takes to run for President.

The Political Machine 2008 features a stylized, 3D version of the United States populated by equally stylized versions of the real candidates that resemble a cross between Miis and bobble-heads. Its odd seeing big head versions of Obama and McCain (and even odder seeing a smiling Hillary Clinton) running around, but all are easily identifiable and get the point across. The only glaring issue visually is that things tend to get cluttered, so it can be hard to see what is going on in each state - especially in smaller ones.

The visuals are complimented by a few sound effects and music, though they really just serve as background noise.''
