IGN: Commander in Chief Review

Simply put, the game isn't also well-tuned to today's political realities. Running a budget deficit of about $700 billion got IGN in trouble, even though the real-world president just inherited a budget deficit that's projected to be over $1 trillion. Throw in the seemingly random, monumental events that happen in the game (Japan and China suddenly go to war with no warning; then the UK and Russia; etc, etc.) and it's difficult to take this as a serious simulation of global politics.
