      I’ve played this game for more than a year untill now and I thought to start my series of reviews with this one.

      EREPUBLIK is basically a browser MMORPG, but due to its large variety of features, it can be described as a strategy/political/social simulator.

      Based on its idea, some other browser games emerged, and I’ll probably review them aswell, but some other time.

      In eRepublik you take control of a citizen. Some can consider this pretty lame, no armies to control, no interactive graphics. But true Role-players cannot omit the potential of this game.

      At first your citizen can only work in a company, train to be fit for when he’ll fight for his country and read local newspapers. As he advances in levels, some options are unlocked, such as writing your own


      articles, create a company or candidate for political positions. When you have unlocked all the game’s features it means you have played enough for this game to interest you. If not, it means this game doesn’t interest you and you perhaps already started playing something else.

      The game has 4 modules: economic, media, politic and military. You can be either a company manager, a succesful writter/journalist, Party President, Congressman or even your country President or a soldier/commander of armies. Of course you can try all of them at the same time, but it’s pretty hard to have succes in all of them.

      There are two types of players in this game: the ‘3-clickers’, ones that only enter the game daily to do the daily chores and the ‘irc-ers’.

      Interesting enough is, although the chat ...

        These players spend almost all of their game time on chats, because being an irc-er gives you a better insight onto the most important game mechanic of this game: the community.

        Just like in RL, leaders orchestrate behind the scenes, ordinary people are just doomed to gossip, and if you want to take a front seat you must work it through your own ways, either good or unorthodox. Politics are full of-backstabbing, people overthrow Governments if war cannot subdue a country and let’s not forget about mass-media, which becomes a great weapon in the right hands.

        In my opinion, this game is a perfect simulator for the Real-life. Interesting enough is a a nation’s

        mentality can be well described with this game, aswell as people characters, undressed of clothes and image, wearing only a name and an avatar.

        The conclusion I got to is that all actions you do, the more time you spend on irc and socialize, the more rapidly you advance, actions materialized in the number and glow of the buttons you press.

        In the meantime, let’s not forget about the social part. Players organize regularly so called eRepublik meetings, where they drink beer and gossip ;)

        As time goes by, e-history unveiles in front of your eyes, and you can choose either to be a spectator or get involved at some time and change the course of history.

        I give this game a 9. The big minus could be the time, because like other browser games, it can become very addictive!
