How the mighty have fallen. Kevin Toms, master programmer and creator of that all time classic Football Manager, tries his hand at politics. In President you are the manager, no sorry headcoach, sorry, wrong again, President of a country and must try to remain in office for as long as possible. The game's about increasing the financial and social status for both yourself and your country. You can drill for oil (Oooh), buy and sell gold (Cor)) and press fire a lot (Eh)! The rest is status screens from which you are supposed to make intelligent decisions.

I dunno. maybe I'm too highly trained for this game. Maybe not, either way any subtle playability that may be contained in here is lost to me.

Overall Summary

Surprisingly repetitive strategy hash. Not too good first time around, even worse now.
