Superpower good? Are you guys kidding? I bought SuperPower not too long ago, and I thought it was awful. It's simplistic, unrealistic, and a bunch of other -istic words. I could rant about the shortcomings of this game, but this review pretty much sums up my problems with it.
I was really dissapointed because I read the preview for SuperPower 2 and figured the first must be good.
If you want a really good nation-building game try one of the Paradox company games. Something like Europa Universalis 2, Hearts of Iron, or Victoria. Especially Victoria. I swear I've never played a game as much as I've played Vic. This is coming from someone who's been a diehard gamer since 3 years old.
Trust me, Victora is really in-depth and complex. Makes the Civ games look like they were made by a retarded monkey (no offense Sid). There's something very satisfying about creating alternate history. Playing as Japan and joining with the US to attack the Confederacy during the civil war or uniting all of Africa with the Zulus and invading Europe for example...
