I really like this game but I just wanted to post out a few things that really bother me about it;
religious people are not all nuts; I think that this is seriously ignored in this game. Usually in any democracy game I play I end up with capitalists, the wealthy and the religious all out for my blood. Honestly, I know I’m downright horrible to the wealthy and capitalists but I’m pretty nice to the religious! They are very demanding and give little room for error - this is just NOT REALISTIC; at all. I allow many things that piss non-religious people off and yet the religious groups still hate me. Yes; some religious people are crazy and some are dangerous but the MAJORITY of religious people are normal…
Secondly. The Darwin Achievement. I can’t even begin to describe how inaccurate this is. Honestly this is the ONLY issue I have with this game is it’s representation of religion. Can we have a balanced society where religion is important but does not rule the country. Darwin did NOT advocate a Godless society. He had no point of view on God. Secondly; as a Christian I believe in evolution (as far as I believe that if that’s what science believes is the most likely scenario then I’m okay with that) I love science and technology and don’t believe in school’s teaching creationism. Can we PLEASE, PLEASE have Christians and religious people viewed in a less harsh light.
Apart from those two issues I really enjoy this game - I still haven’t figured out how to avoid having my credit rating downgraded (even though I’m usually always in surplus!) but apart from that yes; very much enjoying the game.
