- Understand why these players felt bored. Are the players strategy players or just trying it out for the first time (or other reasons)?
- What was the special sauce in D3, that makes these players feel bored in D4 inspite of improvements?
- Why do these players feel that this game is overpriced? Can Cliff talk about how the money is spent and it might give players a better idea about the $27 price tag?
Issues with policy-removal bug, electioneering and popularity
Steam Community :: benji :: Review for Democracy 4
Game doesn’t currently feel like a political simulator, instead it feels like a balance sheet simulator with a political flavour (Why so? Should there be a warning or something else to dissuade hardcore strategy players?)
- No sense of managing a country, and merely putting policies into place.
(Steam Community :: SomeGuyXD :: Review for Democracy 4)
Problem with voter perception, even though all policies were taken for their benefit.
- No Foreign Relations/Domestic Voter Impact (or insufficient) For Foreign Intervention:
- Not clear what this player meant, if you don’t play as a liberal person, you play as a religious person. But it might help to understand this through further questioning and their problem with repetition.
- Might help to explain to this player that more freedom of speech doesn’t reduce conservatives but their opinion, might also help to explain why this happens.
- Why does this player consider the game to be a half-assed mess?
